WILDLIFE VIEWING AREA: Exit 232

Are Colorado’s Bighorn Sheep calling your name?

Iman fishing at lakef so, then pull off I-70 W at exit 232 and follow Alvarado Rd W until it becomes Argentine St.  You’ll find yourself at the Wildlife Viewing Area in Georgetown.  Here at the Viewing Area, you can relax on the shores of Georgetown lake. Here the fishing is good, the views are spectacular, and the dark-green waters of this mountain lake are even better.  Georgetown is home to one of the largest herds of Bighorn Sheep in Colorado, and they are protected here.  There is an observation deck where you can (hopefully) see them in their natural home.  There are information signs around where you can learn about the Bighorn and the other wildlife in the area.

So, use the restroom, have a picnic and just enjoy the Wildlife Viewing Area & the beauty of Georgetown Lake!
