Coot Lake Boulder Colorado
Updated: Sep 30
When Boulder Reservoir was constructed in the 1950s, dirt for its dam was scraped off the ground near 63rd Street.
The site, north of today's Diagonal Highway, became Coot Lake. Now part of Boulder City Parks, it was known in the late 1970s and early 1980s as the place to swim and sunbathe in the nude.
Today Coot Lake is a scenic natural area with fishing, walking, jogging, and running on a trail around the lake that’s about 1-1/2 miles long.
Parking is easy as there’s lots of room just across 63rd at the lot adjacent to Tom Watson park at the back of the IBM facility.
There’s public restrooms, lots of wildlife to see, fishing is allowed from the shore, and with certain restrictions dogs are allowed also. In fact, Coot Lake and its adjacent marshes are one of Boulder County's richest wetland communities and bird watching destinations.
