Lake or Res for roll practice on Front Range

Hello, Does anyone have any suggestions on a lake or reservoir to do some roll practice in with a friend. Would help to have a solid floor to stand in and assist etc. Yes, pools are nice but hard to schedule around. I'm located in Boulder, and my first thought was Boulder reservoir. But F__ that place after daily fees, boat inspections, and registering each kayak for 40 bucks. What the hell basically. Thanks for any help or suggestions. ~Jh

Or Big Soda Lake at Bear Creek Lake Park. Similar daily fee, but not covered by a State Parks Pass.

I've gone up to Carter Lake north of Lyons. No fee, no one bothers you.

FYI, Carter lake does have a fee and rangers enforcing the fee as it is a Larimer County Park. I live in Loveland and don't go there because of the fees, we go to Lone Tree which is a wakeless lake and no fees.

My bad, yes, Carter does have the day use fee. Just no boat check.
