Public Ramp Use & Getting Your Boat on the Water

The boat ramp at the Frisco Bay Marina is closed for the summer season and will reopen summer of 2022 based on water levels. Hours of operation are posted at the ramp and will adjust based on seasonal needs.

When Dillon Reservoir is full (9017 ft. high in elevation) the ramp has 16 feet of water for the public to launch boats from. There is no fee to use the ramp, but there must be at least 4 feet of water on it or it must be at an elevation of 9,005 feet.

  • The Frisco Bay Marina ramp is operable for most powerboats at a water elevation of 9,005 feet. Here is some information to help calculate your water needs for launching a boat: the new ramp is dry at a lake elevation of 9,001 feet, and the lake is full at 9,017 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 minimum reservoir elevation needed to launch your boat.
  • The current reservoir elevation can be found on the Denver Water website.
  • If the water is not at the right level to launch your boat at the Frisco Bay Marina, you may still be able to launch your boat at the Dillon Marina boat ramp. The Dillon Marina’s ramp is long enough to handle launching at most water levels, however there is a fee to launch, and the ramp does not open to public use until all ice comes off the main body of water.
  • Please be reminded that your boat will need to be inspected at any ramp before launching in the effort to keep aquatic nuisance species out of Dillon Reservoir.
