Cheeseman Reservoir - Jefferson County
Ownership: None Listed
Description: This high mountain reservoir is probably not worth a visit for waterbirds (though you never know). Most of the surrounding forest burned in the Hayman Fire, so the main reason to come here would be for American Three-toed Woodpecker.

Habitat: Lake, Mixed-Conifer Forest, Burn Area
Directions: From the town of Deckers, follow CR 126 (Deckers Road) to the west to FR 211 in about 2 miles and take a left (south). Follow this road for 2.5 miles to the reservoir.
