Boating at Gross Reservoir
Memorial Day, 2005
Since fall of 2004, Denver Water has been working to prepare Gross Reservoir for expanded recreation. The recreation area will be open, beginning Memorial Day, 2005, to non-motorized car-top boats.
Some roads on the south side have been closed periodically, to allow construction work to prepare parking and a boat ramp at Osprey Point. Parking for anglers and kayakers is also being prepared to give better access to South Boulder Creek below the dam. This parking area and an associated trail should be open in the spring of 2005; boating will begin on Memorial Day and continue through September 30.
Denver Water will continue to implement the recreation management plan in coming months until all new facilities and activities are available.
Boating regulations for Gross Reservoir will allow car-top boats (canoes, kayaks, row boats) but not trailer-hauled boats, sail boats (no windsurfing or ice boards), or any kind of motorized boat. Allowable boats must be single-hull construction, hand-propelled, and less than 18 feet long. Inflatable boats must be multi-chambered (no inner tubes, air mattresses, belly boats, or single-chambered rafts).
New parking regulations will be in effect at Osprey Point when the new facilities are operational. More law enforcement and safety information will be posted as the recreation season approaches.
