Lake Isabel is a favorite vacation spot in the southern Wet Mountains, offering picnic areas, a campground, and several parking areas scattered around the lake. There is also a number of private vacation homes on the north shore and cabins you can rent at “the Lodge.”
The lake welcomes non-motorized boats for fishing in waters stocked with brown and brook trout. You may even find a paddle boat for rent.
Nearby Snow Slide and Cisneros trails offer hiking and biking. Cisneros Trail is also open to ATVs.
Campers can pitch a tent at La Vista Campground, set in a meadow overlooking the west side of the lake. RV-ready Southside Campground accepts rigs less than 30 feet long with no hook-up requirements at pull-through sites.
