Boat Launch Ramp is currently CLOSED till water levels rise enough in the reservoir.
The ramp is operable for most powerboats at a water elevation of 9004 feet. To help calculate your water needs for launching a boat: the new ramp is dry at a lake elevation of 9001, and the lake is full at 9017 feet. Add at least 2 feet to the dry elevation to account for your trailer and tire height with your boat draft and that is the reservoir elevation that is the minimum for your boat. The current reservoir elevation can be found on the Denver Water website. The reservoir has been and is looking to be slow to fill until warmer temps start melting all the snow on the mountains. Learn more about the boat launch ramp and getting your boat in the water.

Latest Water Level Update:
With the cold temperatures the incoming water is slow to arrive and thereby slow to fill the reservoir as well. We are projected to be FULL this summer but it happen later in the season when the night time temperatures start to rise. Call or stop into the office for up to date water activity.
For more information on the exact level the lake is at daily visit the Denver Water website.
