Vallecito Lake Real Estate Market

Situated 18 miles northeast of the Downtown Durango neighborhood lies a true gem of Southwest Colorado. The Vallecito Lake community is home to one of the largest recreational reservoirs in the state of Colorado and is around 8,000 feet above sea level. Many homes for sale in Vallecito Lake have excellent lake views or are situated along Grimes Creek, which feeds into the lake from the north.

Find a cool breeze and serenity at one of these lakeview or riverfront properties. Vallecito Lake offers a variety of home styles, from small cabins to expansive luxury log homes. Vallecito Lake makes tourists and residents feel like they are in a completely different place than SW Colorado—Many living here consider the feel to be similar to the lake resorts surrounded by pine trees in Northern Minnesota.

Vallecito Lake Community Amenities

Many locals make the drive to the town of Bayfield or the Durango community for work, while others are employed by the local tourism industry, such as at the restaurants and boat rental docks.

Vallecito Lake provides the perfect lodge-type setting, so many SW Colorado locals come here to fish, hunt, and cross country ski. There are many vacation homeowners in the area along with locals who have called Vallecito home for decades.

Residents and visitors can find basic necessities—and also one heck of a breakfast burrito—at the Vallecito Lake Country Market. There are also a few dining options on the lake.

Vallecito Lake Tourism and Recreation

Visitors head to the lake year-round since it's an attractive destination in both summer and winter. During the winter months, skiers flock to the groomed cross-country ski trail, snowmobilers climb their way up to Middle Mountain, and anglers try their luck ice fishing.

Vallecito Lake is typically at its busiest during the spring and summer seasons. RVs head to one of the three RV parks located around the lake. Tourists will rent vacation cabins, which are found all around the lake. With a least five public campgrounds, many La Plata County locals will meet up with friends for a weekend of car camping. One of Lake Vallecito's lesser-known attractions is the kokanee salmon run that usually starts in the middle of November—this is a great time to snag a few fish to freeze for the winter months.
