Sweitzer Lake State Park near Delta is a day-use park for nature viewing, picnicking and water recreation.

The park was a dream of Morgan Sweitzer, a Colorado fruit grower until his death in 1953. He donated the land for the park but died 12 years before its completion.

Recreation, such as water-skiing, swimming, fishing, boating, and bird watching, is the purpose of the park.
