Map of Evergreen Lake
Evergreen Lake is small to medium sized lake. There is now a fee of $6 or $7 to put your canoe or kayak on the lake. No motor boats or motors allowed. There is a kayak rental operation on the lake. There is development around the lake but part of the lake is bordered by a park. There is easy access to Evergreen Lake. Bear creek leads into and out of the lake.
It is possible to paddle about a quarter of a mile up bear creek from the lake. It is not uncommon to see elk bathing in the lake. The views are nothing special as far as Colorado lakes go, but it's convenient.
