SWEITZER LAKE STATE PARK
It started out as a community dream. This lake based retreat for the Western Slope provides day-use nature, picnic and water recreation.
Visitors come to Sweitzer Lake, near Delta, for action-packed boating and water skiing on busy days and relaxed nature play on mellow days.
Built solely for recreation, Sweitzer Lake fulfills its planned purpose well. Water-ski, swim, picnic, fish, boat, bird watch or just breathe-in the clean air. Sit on the grass, at a picnic site or on the sandy shore and enjoy the day.
Sweitzer Lake is home to waterfowl, fox, pheasants, rabbits, shore birds, deer, raccoon, Gambels quail, and raccoon.
The native upland vegetation communities at Sweitzer Lake State Park include greasewood shrublands, mat saltbush shrublands, xeric shrublands, emergent wetlands, wet meadows, riparian shrublands and riparian woodlands.
All Colorado State Parks have entrance fees. All vehicles are required to have an entrance pass and some parks have walk-in fees. Visit the Colorado Park Entrance Pass
