Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Taylor Park Reservoir is a popular recreational area located in Gunnison County, Colorado. The reservoir was created in 1937 by the creation of the Taylor Park Dam which forms a 2,040-acre lake. The water from the reservoir is primarily used for irrigation for the nearby agricultural lands in the area, as well as to support recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and camping. The reservoir's hydrology is fed by both surface flows from the Taylor River as well as snowpack, which is supplied by the surrounding mountains. The reservoir is also used to store water for downstream use, particularly during dry periods. The area provides a vital habitat for fish and wildlife and is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts.
