About the map

Colorado Map Extent

In general, rivers in Colorado flow into the Gulf of Mexico and the Great Basin. This map shows Colorado lakes, rivers, and streams. For example, the Colorado River, Rio Grande, and Arkansas River are the main watercourses in the state.

Blue Mesa Reservoir, John Martin Reservoir, and Lake Granby are the largest reservoirs in Colorado, Despite the fact that Colorado is landlocked, its lakes provide plenty of shoreline for swimming and recreation.

The Colorado River is one of the largest rivers in the United States, flowing for 1450 miles through Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah, and of course the state of Colorado. In fact, this river starts in the central Rocky Mountains, through the Grand Canyon, until it reaches Lake Mead in Arizona.
