Lathrop State Park is nestled in the shadow of the legendary Spanish Peaks which tower over the park. Lathrop State Park's gentle climate, clear air, beautiful campsites, excellent fishing, water skiing and great views of the nearby mountain ranges lure Colorado travelers and other visitors to the park for regular visits.
The state's first state park, Lathrop is 1,594 acres of recreational enjoyment. The park has two lakes, Martin Lake and Horseshoe Lake, which offer a variety of boating and angling opportunities.
A nine-hole golf course at the park is also popular.
