A Paradise in the Mountains
Vallecito Lake, sheltered in a mountain valley 8,000 feet above the sea, is one of the most beautiful bodies of water in Colorado. Vallecito Lake is surrounded by the San Juan National Forest and Weminuche Wilderness and boasts striking views of water, mountains and forest. Because the lake is located at the heart of the Four Corners, it is a perfect vacation destination with access to all the major attractions and activities the area has to offer, including the Durango and Silverton Train, Mesa Verde National Park, Purgatory Mountain Resort, and Wolf Creek Ski Area. Nearby Durango also offers a wide range of entertainment and activities such as art gallery walks, concerts, special indoor and outdoor events, and excellent dining.
