Craig Briefs: Elkhead Reservoir open on weekends

Due to "overwhelming" public response from residents in Moffat and Routt counties, Colorado State Parks has decided to keep Elkhead Reservoir open on the weekends — weather permitting — through October, according to a news release from state parks.

Elkhead will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The lake will also remain open for hand-launched vessels through the end of the season.

For more information, call the park office at 276-2061.
