Walton Lake

Call ahead This experience may be open for on-site visitation; however, offerings and/or operating procedures may have changed due to COVID-19. Please verify details before you go and visit the COVID-19 Resources page for more information.

This lake is a blue sparkling jewel hidden within mostly old growth ponderosa pine forest. A small dam impounds spring-fed water that seeps from surrounding sloped meadows. Quaking aspen and tall willows add habitat diversity to make this place especially attractive to wildlife and humans alike. A dirt trail, not suitable for wheel-chair visitors, encircles the lake for a variety of scenic views.

Caution: Expect lots of human company on weekends and summer weekdays.

Motorized boating is limited to eletric motor only. The boat launch is available near the day use area.
