Echo Lake Park sits at an elevation of 10,600-feet. The lake is a

popular destination for fishing, or just to relax, picnic, and walk the

easy trail around the lake. The weather can change quickly up here, so

wear layers and be prepared for wind, rain, lightning, snow and hail.

There are tent and RV campsites, reserve in advance or try your luck

snagging a site first-come first-served. Echo Lake Lodge was built in

1926 and today houses a gift shop and restaurant. There is no lodging

anymore. Open Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Highway 103 and Mt Evans Rd
Idaho Springs, CO
