This is a story about the curious case of Curecanti National Recreation Area.

Operated by the National Park Service, it stretches between Montrose and Gunnison along three reservoirs, including Blue Mesa Reservoir, which is 20 miles long, has 96 miles of shoreline and is Colorado’s largest body of water. Over the decades, Curecanti’s reservoirs have attracted visitors who enjoy boating, fishing, hiking, camping, bird-watching and other activities.
