Eleven Mile’s waters have surrendered some of the largest fish ever taken in Colorado. The reservoir’s boaters, particularly sailors, are challenged by the tricky winds and fast-rising storms that occasionally sweep the area. ENJOY YOUR STATE PARKS Park Office/Camper Services Eleven Mile’s elevation of 8,600 feet makes for a wide range of temperatures in any season, so park visitors should dress accordingly. Visitors should also be prepared to protect themselves against sunburn at this altitude. The Park Office is located in the camper services building near Rocky Ridge Campground on Park County Road 92. Showers, flush toilets and laundry facilities are available at the camper services building May-September. Colorado Parks and Wildlife manages Eleven Mile’s 3,400 surface-acre reservoir and 4,000 land acres under a lease from the Denver Water Board. The reservoir has been an important water storage facility for the city of Denver since the dam was completed in 1932.
