The perfect summer. That’s the dream! How about starting with time at the lake, enjoying some delicious nourishments and refreshments, and just hanging out with friends listening to some live music. Sound good? Well, that’s what Logan County, CO has planned for the rest of July!

July Sizzles

You'll not be able to resist the smoky smell of barbecue at Hot Spot Smokehouse and Forequarters, or a gigantic scoop of hard ice cream at the charming Simkins Parlour, or a brew made with locally grown wheat at Parts & Labor Brewing Company. Check out all the tastes of Logan County while you're here!

Summer is a great time to celebrate the history of our pioneers at the Overland Trail Museum. This replica of an old fort houses artifacts, memorabilia and collections of early life on the prairie. A village of historic buildings surrounds the shady museum grounds.

July’s Off the Hook

North Sterling State Park is the perfect place to cool off on a hot summer day. Spend your day water skiing or tubing across the pristine water, or drop a line in one of the many coves to reel in dinner, or wade in from the shoreline at one of the many swimming spots around the lake.
