Default Lakes near Denver with offroad, fishing, camping

Hi guys! Just moved to Denver and looking for the lakes where you can offroad to, and camp there, with good fishing. Would really appreciate if you recommend something not to far from denver.

I dont imagine you're going to get a high amount of responses man. Lakes like that are highly coveted. You're gonna have to dig and research and maybe even drive up to some places. Read some more posts like this and you'll see. I'm pretty sure it's the definition of doing your work. Best of luck man

What is "not too far"? A good place for fishing, camping, and off roading is Stillwater Pass. You have camping and off roading at Stillwater and fishing at Granby

Hi SM,

Any lake you can drive to in the mountains is gonna get hit pretty hard.

A 4x4 lake with good fishing and camping is the Holy Grail in Colorado and tbh, I don't think you'll find it.

I'd split the 2 hobbies and spend a day 4x4'ing and then a day fishing, either by hiking to a lake or settling for a larger lake you can drive to.

If you really insist on a 4x4 adventure with a lake at the end for a kum shot, try Bill Moore Lake trail. Don't get stuck or break anything and no promises on any fish being in that lake.

Welcome to Colorado, The millennial generation's ultimate Nirvana holyland, seems like every millennial that can, is effn moving here.

It's free because they can stand on the corner and beg for money... then go buy the pot!
