Good morning. I was wondering if there are any towns between Colorado Springs and Fort Collins that have lake homes or lake lots available. I know of Red Feathers Lake northwest of Fort Collins, but I believe it would be too far north and west, and perhaps a bit too remote to be easy to get to in the winter. Perhaps I am wrong. We've never tried to reach it in the winter.

Are there other lakes in that area that have homes or have lots suitable for building? We have been looking at properties that have views of the mountains, but hope to find one that also has nearby access to boating and fishing.

Thanks, and have a great day.
JR

Southshore in Arapahoe County will have new million dollar plus lake front homes on the Aurora Res. (Home to the 2007 Parade of Homes)

I think there are more lakes in the Ft. Collins area then metro Denver.

Northern Colorado actually has a fair number of lakes you could look at. I'm not a boater so I'm not totally sure which ones could give you an actual lakefront lot or not, but on the north side of Fort Collins you have Terry Lake as well as several others. At Terry Lake there are lots and houses surrounding the lake. On FC's southeast side there is Fossil Creek Reservoir as well. Loveland has a small lake in town (Lake Loveland) as well as the larger Boyd Lake on its east side and Carter Lake to its southwest. Windsor also has a fair number of lakes.

I hope that helps get you pointed in the right direction.
