Trail Overview
Long Draw Reservoir Road
Beautiful landscapes, camping, fishing, wildlife and off road fun. What more could you ask for? Choose from designated trailside camp spots or campgrounds that will charge a small fee. This beautiful area is flanked by wilderness area and Rocky Mountain National Park. It closes when snow begins and opens when it melts. Call ahead.
The dam for Long Draw Reservoir was completed in 1929. Thirty years later the dam was expanded, flooding an additional 390 acres of the Roosevelt National Forest. Water for the reservoir comes from La Poudre Pass Creek, which flows out of Rocky Mountain National Park.
