Fenton Lake State Park
Description - A popular year-round retreat surrounded by beautiful ponderosa pine forests, Fenton Lake State Park features a cross-country ski and biathlon trail and wheelchair accessible fishing platforms.

The park sits at an elevation of 7,900 feet and covers 700 acres of land in addition to the lake. Facilities include a group shelter, 40 developed campsites (some with hookups), restrooms, and a playground.

Attractions - Prior to becoming a state park, Fenton Lake was purchased by State Game and Fish as a resting and nesting area for migratory waterfowl, and a refuge for other wildlife. Now more of a fishing haven than a duck drop, waterfowl, turkey, deer, muskrat, elk and bobcat can still be observed.
