Lake George, Colorado is a small manmade lake set in the Rocky Mountains. We came across the gorgeous lake on a recent trip to take our grandson to Camp Alexander for Boy Scout Camp. The town sits on Highway 24 at an elevation of 7992 feet.
According to Uncover Colorado, the town of Lake George was established as a railroad stop in 1891 for the Colorado Midland Railway. The man made lake was built by George Frost for the purpose of supplying ice to the railroad.
We didn’t have time to stop and fish on this trip; but it’s on our list for next time.
