Happy Meadows is situated along the South Platte River north of Lake George. This area receives heavy recreational use due to its proximity to the Front Range.

A combination of high sediment loads, eroding river banks, shallow water depths, and warm water tempertures have made this project a high priority for the Coalition For The Upper South Platte (CUSP).  Accordingly, the Park County Land & Water Trust Fund board committed matching funds for this $390,000 river improvement project.
