Elkhead State Park is a Colorado state park located in Moffat and Routt counties in northwest Colorado, near Craig. The park surrounds and includes Elkhead Reservoir. It is sometimes referred to as Elkhead Reservoir State Park.
The reservoir is stocked with smallmouth bass and trout, and northern pike are being transplanted from the Yampa River to the reservoir.  Activities at the park include camping, fishing, boating, wildlife viewing, and hiking.
The park straddles the Routt / Moffat county line. The reservoir dams Elkhead Creek, which drains the Elkhead Mountains, to the north.
