Surrounding Area

The Twin Lakes area is known to thousands of visitors as a wonderful place to visit. One visitor, William Byers of the Rocky Mountain News, wrote: "The lower lake is nearly four miles in length by one and a half in breath, and it's soft, undulating, quiet shores form a singular contrast to the rugged mountains beyond. A straight, narrow terrace, twenty feet in height a natural dam- separates it from the upper lake, which is a mile and a half in length lying as if it were between the knees of the mountains. A triangular tract of meadowland slopes upward from the farthest end of this lake and is gradually squeezed into a deep, wide cañon, out of which the lake stream issues." During a stay in the Twin Lakes area, visitors can enjoy both summer and winter activities. Summer activities include: hiking, boating, fishing, rafting, bicycling, jogging, mountain climbing, repelling, and camping. Golf, tennis courts, swimming pools, hot springs, and shopping are only a short drive away. Winter activities include: cross-country skiing, ice fishing, snowshoeing, ice-skating, sledding, snowmobiling, and alpine skiing. A natural hot spring, and recreation center with indoor swimming pool are close by.
