    Campground Activities

    FISHING - Deep Lake receives heavy fishing pressure for rainbow, brook and lake trout. The Colorado Division of Wildlife does stock the lake with rainbow trout on a regular basis.BOATING - There is a good gravel boat ramp in the day use area for launching small boats. No gas powered boats are allowed on the lake, electric motors are permitted.HISTORY - Ute hunting parties camped at Deep Lake in the early 1800's. President Teddy Roosevelt followed nearly a century later when his Flat Tops hunting party camped at the lake in 1905. Pioneer travelers on the Dotsero to Meeker wagon road rested at a hotel which was built on the lake in 1890. After the hotel was destroyed by fire in 1906, the U.S. Forest Service built a guard station on the northwest edge of Deep Lake . It has since been removed. The historic Ute Trail is a rough 4-wheel drive road/ trail #2031 accessible north of the lake.
