Fish, skate, ski, sled at Crawford State Park
From 9 a.m. to noon, a free ice-fishing clinic will be offered. Participants will start indoors and learn about ice-fishing gear and lures, ice-fishing electronics, fishing techniques and the biology of crappies. Then the class will move outside onto the ice for some hands-on experience.
All participants must have a Colorado fishing license. Licenses are available for sale at the park. Bring your own fishing gear.
From noon-6 p.m. everyone else can join the fun. An ice rink will be ready on the lake, a sledding hill will be open and cross-country skiing trails will be set. You should bring your own sled, skates and skis.
Starting at noon, park staff will get a fire going to cook hot dogs and make s’mores. They’ll also be serving up hot chocolate. Refreshments are free.
Entrance to the park is just $7 per vehicle. Annual passes, good for all 42 state parks, are available for $70.
