Where Colorado lacks sandy beaches and ocean waves is made up in mountain lakes and rivers. Here are 10 places to go paddle boarding in the mountains of Colorado.

Author’s Note: Some spots in this list require an entrance fee. Lifeguards may not be employed or always on duty at some of these places to paddleboard. Prepare for cold water and avoid shock by wearing a wetsuit or drysuit. Always wear a Personal Flotation Device, which is required by law at most bodies of water in Colorado.
