Curecanti Recreation area
The three lakes, named after the dams built on the Gunnison River, form the Curecanti National Recreation Area. Tourists come here to admire beautiful panoramas of flat mountains (Mesa), see lakes resembling narrow fjords, and the same narrow deep canyons.
Lake Blue Mesa is the largest water reservoir in Colorado, the richest salmon fishery in the United States. Lake Morrow Point originates in the Black Canyon and connects to Lake Crystal located below, which hides in the Gunnison Diversion Tunnel.
Not far from here, traces of habitat and many parts of dinosaur skeletons were found, approximately 6,000 years old, which gives additional interest to the Curecanti reserve.
