History

Lake Colorado City State Park is a 500-acre park, leased for 99 years from a utility company in Mitchell County, located southwest of Colorado City. It was acquired in 1971 and was opened in 1972. 

Lake Colorado City was built in 1949 on Morgan Creek, a tributary of the Colorado River, by Texas Electric Service Company to provide cooling water for the power plant, a water supply for Colorado City, and recreation. Morgan Creek Power Plant is the largest modern steam electric station in West Texas.
