Lonetree Reservoir to close to the public in 2018

By Pamela Johnson, Reporter-Herald

Lonetree Reservoir will close to the public next summer as Colorado Parks and Wildlife, which has operated a recreation area there since the 1970s, was outbid for the lease by a private bidder.

“We’re certainly disappointed,” Mark Leslie, northeast regional manager for Colorado Parks and Wildlife, said in a press release. “We negotiated as best we could for a 20-year lease, but we were outbid in the end.”

Colorado Parks and Wildlife did not identify who won the bid, and representatives of the Consolidated Home Supply Ditch Co, owner of the reservoir southwest of Loveland, could not be reached Friday.

A new golf course being built in the Heron Lakes area of Berthoud, however, borders Lonetree Reservoir.

In fact, the general manager of the golf course, Larry Collins, is quoted in the Reporter-Herald’s Loveland Magazine as saying: “When you step on the tee, the green is actually embedded in Lonetree Reservoir. It’s a spectacular setting.”
