"Swim or sunbath at Vallecito Reservoir" Durango Things to Do Tip by Cylkey

Durango Things to Do: 36 reviews and 48 photos


Vallecito Reservoir is 20 minutes from downtown Durango. If you're like me, you crave waterscapes, or at the very least, the sounds of water lapping at a shoreline. Sometimes the river just isn't enough. Sometimes you want to JUMP in and swim as far as you can before coming up for air so you can feel the water pushing through your hair and rushing over your eyelids. Vallecito is a great place to swim, boat, fish or even try out waterskiing.

Address: 13030 CR 501, Bayfie
Directions: Take 3rd avenue, which changes into CR 240, North East to CR 501, the reservoir entrance is about 5 miles North on CR 501
