This is a private lake, but you can view it from both the east and the west sides from county roads. Be careful of local traffic. The lake is often well worth a visit, as in the spring and fall it can be full of waterbirds including ducks, grebes, and coots. Occasionally a Bald Eagle might be seen flying over the water. Watch for mule deer in the area.
Directions: From US 160 at Mancos, head north on CO 184 about two miles and turn right onto CR 41 to scan the east side, or procede another mile and turn right onto CR 40 for the west side of the lake.
