Lathrop State Park was the first state park in Colorado, and the only one with golf course. The focal point are two lakes. Martin Lake offers a full range of water recreation as motor boats are permitted, perfect for water-skiing, jet-skiing, and tubing. Horseshoe Lake only permits non-motorized boats, making this a peaceful oasis for kayaks, canoes, and standup paddle-boarding. Both lakes offer a swimming beach, fishing, and simply stunning views of the Spanish Peaks. Camping is available at Pinon Campground or Yucca Campground. All Colorado Parks have a day-use entrance fee, or consider a Colorado State Park Pass.
