General Information

Description - Marys Lake Dikes, Colorado-Big Thompson Project, are 2 dikes on the shoreline of Marys Lake, 2 miles from Estes Park, Colorado.

Attractions - A concession-developed campground accommodating 270 campsites, including both RV sites with utility hookups and tent camping sites, has been constructed adjacent to the site. Access is good. Water Surface available for recreation is approximately 42 acres. No boating is allowed.

Recreation - Primary recreation activities include camping, fishing, and picnicking. Primary fish species include rainbow trout. Facilities are closed in winter due to ice and snow.

Climate - The climate in Colorado varies tremendously from hot dusty summer days to frigidly cold winter nights. Colorado is known for its thunderstorms which form over the Rocky Mountains and then head across the eastern plains, often reaching 10,000 feet or more in height. Lightening is a serious threat, particularly on mountain peaks, lakes and open fields. Summertime temperatures routinely reach 90 to 100 degrees on the plains and the 70 - 80 degrees in the mountains. Cool weather is always possible at night throughout Colorado, particularly at higher elevations. It is not uncommon to need both shorts and a jacket on the same day.

Location - Mary's Lake is located two miles from Estes Park Colorado. A map is available above on this wildernet.com page.
