Boating

Lake County has several destinations for boating. Turquoise Lake has motorized access for boats on the south side of the lake and non-motorized boats on the north. For a small launch fee you can cruise around the lake and enjoy the vistas. Early morning paddling with the sun focusing on the mountain peaks and the lake with mirror-like conditions makes for great photo opportunities. Fishing in the lake can be exciting for the little ones as for the experience angler. Other activities include sailing, canoeing, and even water skiing. Dont forget the wet suit, burrrrrrr! Twin lakes between Leadville and Buena Vista also offers some forms of boating. Below are a few of the local proprietors and establishments that are more than happy to help you out. Call ahead for hours, directions, contact information, and their services for water sports.
