Welcome To Cottonwood Lake
Cottonwood Lake is located inside South Cottonwood Canyon in the San Isabel National Forest,
approximately eight miles west of Buena Vista, Colorado.
At 9,552 feet in elevation, the lake and area offer a multitude of outdoor
activities including fishing, camping, kayaking, hiking and 4-wheeling
in the summer, and snowmobiling, cross-county skiing,
ice skating and ice fishing in the winter.
The trailheads to many nearby Colorado fourteeners are
within a short driving distance from Cottonwood Lake.
