  • They do a good job keeping the place clean and the visitor center is lovely. Keep it up! Also the town has gotten very used to the events held out at Fort Collins and shuttling individuals to and from huge music events and festivals is not easy but they really do a great job so kudos to the police and volunteers and staff that always do this during the tourist season thanks a lot for all that work I usually don't look for it to doing it but then once I get in the traffic I realized that you guys keep things moving along
  • Loved it. The place rents boats and sails also. They have a fort which has a tour ticket for $15/adult. It is a guided tour for an hour. Outside the fort is the dock area which has beautiful Dawn and dusk views.
