TRINIDAD, Colo. - Trinidad Lake in Trinidad Lake State Park has been fully reopened to boating and all other activities.
The lake had been closed and partial closed for several days while firefighting efforts were underway on two fires near Trinidad. County, state and federal firefighting resources were using the lake to fill firefighting aircraft with water for fire drops. With the fire being contained, the lake is now fully open for boats.
"We appreciate the public's patience and understanding during the brief closure," said Heath Kehm, Park Manager at Trinidad State Park. "We also thank the amazing men and women who worked to get the fires under control. Their dedication and hard work is appreciated."
Trinidad Lake State Park is still under a Stage I fire ban, per Las Animas County. Anyone planning a cookout or campfire in the state park should call ahead or check the park's website for updated information.
