Summer Trip 2021, Paonia State Park, Paonia, CO

 Paonia State Park

Located just north of Paonia, CO this park is nestled in the rugged Colorado mountains on a reservoir that provides campers with great views and opportunities to enjoy water related sports.

The campground at Paonia State Park is nicely forested with a river that flows into the reservoir south of our campsite. The park is primitive with just pit toilets and without water or electric. Since we had our solar panel we had no problem and enjoyed our two night stay. 

During our stay at Paonia State Park we drove to Marble, CO which is 23 miles from the park with great scenery along the way. Marble is known for the quarry white marble that arties use to create sculptures that are great works of art with great detail

We had lunch at Slow Groovin BBQ, well known for it's great ribs and brisket. The mining town has unique buildings all surrounded by great mountain scenery.

We enjoyed the cool weather at night with lots of shade during the day at Paonia State Park. The Colorado Rocky mountains are such a great place to visit in the summer with views and memories that last forever.
