If Lake City, Co. were a stage, its backdrop would be splendid. Nestled in the heart of the San Juan Mountain Range just minutes from the spectacular San Cristobal Lake, this place is an ideal vacation spot year round. Activities here include hiking, camping, boating, fly and ice fishing, horseback riding and mountain biking over the many spectacular mountain trails. The city also offers hunting, mine tours, mini golf, rafting, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and historic tours.
The only skyscrapers in Lake City are natural ones: the San Juans. Whether you are sightseeing, shopping, dining or indulging in your favorite outdoor pursuits, you'll discover there's more mountains and fresh air to the square mile here than just about anywhere in the state.
You won't go hungry here, and neither did Lake City's most notorious resident. In 1874, Alferd Packer was jailed for killing and eating five fellow gold prospectors when their group became trapped in a blizzard atop nearby Slumgullion Pass. After his release from prison, he allegedly became a vegetarian.
