Park Alerts...


Rocky shore of lakeLake Colorado City State Park is a 500-acre park  southwest of Colorado City. TPWD signed a lease on the land in 1971 with a 25-year term and automatic one-year extensions thereafter. The park opened in 1972. 

The lake was built in 1949 on Morgan Creek, a tributary of the Colorado River. It provided cooling water for the Morgan Creek Power Plant, water for Colorado City, and recreation. Its waters no longer serve the first two purposes; it is now just for recreation.
