Lake Colorado City State Park is a 500-acre park, leased for 99 years from a utility company in Mitchell County, southwest of Colorado City. It was acquired in 1971 and was opened in 1972. Lake Colorado City was built in 1949 on Morgan creek, a tributary of the Colorado River, by Texas Electric Service Company to provide cooling water for the power plant, a water supply for Colorado City, and recreation. Activities include picnicking, camping, fishing, and lake swimming (unsupervised). Containing more than five miles of shoreline, the 500 acres of park land afford numerous outdoor activities for lake swimmers, fisherman, skiers, jet-skiers, campers, hikers, and naturalists. Park visitors of all ages enjoy seeing part of the Texas Longhorn herd.
