Cherry Creek Reservoir Opens to Boating April 1

Cherry Creek Reservoir - Aurora, CO (Douglas County)

by Colorado Parks & Wildlife

DENVER, Colo. -– Cherry Creek State Park will open the ramp on the west side of the park to boating on Saturday, April 1. Ramp hours will be from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. The east boat ramp will be opened after April, as conditions allow.

Motorized boaters should prepare for boating season on the Cherry Creek Reservoir by registering their vessels and completing the Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) inspection. They should also test and inspect life jackets and safety equipment before coming to the reservoir. The park does provide life jackets on a first-come, first-served basis.

Hand-launched, non-motorized vessels that do not require an inspection, such as kayaks, canoes and paddleboards do not have to use the boat ramp to access the reservoir. 

Visitors to the park should be prepared to pay an additional $3 for the Cherry Creek Basin Water Quality Fee, in conjunction with the Keep Colorado Wild yearly pass.
