It is owned by Colorado Springs Utilities and delivers water to Colorado Springs, Colorado for municipal use. Built in 1957, the reservoir stores water from the Middle Fork South Platte River and from a tunnel that brings water from the Blue River on the west side of the continental divide.

  • After hiking the Hoosier Pass, which overlooked this reservoir, we decided to picnic with the fishing folks. There are no picnic tables but lots of rocks. We noticed a water feature on the far end.....  more »
  • Pleasant and short hike to the reservoir, worth spending few hours to roam around or just sit and enjoy the view.  more »
  • Beautiful. Old mining area with waterfalls.
  • Beautiful area that usually has great fishing but in 2018 we visited a couple months earlier than usual and didn't have much luck. Hopefully we'll be back in August again soon but the Lake Crystal/Hayden Meadows more than satisfied our fishing desires even after the much longer drive from Breckenridge.
