Fodor's Review

According to Ute legend, the fine mists that shroud Grand Lake at dawn are the risen spirits of women and children whose raft capsized as they were fleeing a marauding party of Cheyennes and Arapahos. Grand Lake is the largest and deepest natural lake in Colorado. It feeds into two much larger man-made reservoirs, Lake Granby and Shadow Mountain Lake, and these three water bodies as well as Monarch Lake and Willow Creek and Meadow Creek reservoirs are called the "Great Lakes of Colorado."
