Echo Lake Park reviews
The 10 miles drive from Idaho Springs at the end of March was safe and easy. The Echo Lodge right after the Lake is literally covered by ice, unreachable and so is the road to Mount Evans. You won't..... more »
Beautiful mountain lake with great picnic spots. Some of the best trails in Colorado surround the lake. Awesome views of the Rockies and Mt. EVANS. more »
Great Lake! But... the bathroom is a little scary to use because there is no door!? You could be walked in on by another person or a animal very easily. If possible, hold it. There is a wide variety of ducks and other birds to look at! There are some gray birds that are very friendly, but will steal your chips if you don’t keep an eye on them. They have lots of grills, but there is a “no cooking with fire” sign. Confusing. I enjoy listening to the sounds of nature, but there are lots of motorcycles that ride past the lake and make louder noises than the nature. >:( There are some very good hikes in the area with great views! Some areas you need to take slow and be safe! The gift shop at the other end of the lake is very fun and has a COOL mountain goat penny press. Not too expensive!
It was very pretty, natural and a cool picnic area. It’s a nice walk around the lake. I would definitely recommend stopping by the echo lake lodge, these are wonderful and warm hearted people. Got in trouble on the top of the mountain and they took care of us and brought my group down there. Plus they have good food and great souvenirs !
