A mountain lake surrounded by alpine scenery makes Paonia State Park a spot for water lovers and nature lovers.

Camping, boating, fishing and water-skiing on the reservoir, picnicking and wildlife-watching are available.

Paonia is noted for northern pike fishing, best in the summer. Ice fishing is not permitted.

Photographers and nature lovers enjoy the beauty of the mountains and wildflowers.

Two campgrounds offer basic facilities for quiet and remote camping.
