Often confused with Windsor Lake, which is three miles south in the town of Windsor, Windsor Reservoir is larger and often attracts more birds. It is a particularly good place to find diving ducks and flocks of gulls. However, it is a private lake relatively far from the road, so it can be difficult to view; a scope is required. The best spot to scan from is the end of the dam, near the busy intersection of CR 74 and CR 19. Be cautious of traffic when parking and walking.
Directions: From I-25: take exit 265, CO 74/Harmony Rd. Head east on CO 74 for 5.5 miles and the reservoir will be on the north. Viewing is from the roadside; best spot is on the north side of the road by CR 19.
Dates of Access: Open all year
Hours: Daylight hours
Restrictions: Please respect private property. Beware of traffic when parking on the roadside.
Lodging: Hotels in Greeley or Fort Collins.
