LAKE GEORGE, Colo. – Spinney Mountain State Park will open to boating Friday, May 26 at 5 a.m. The north boat ramp will be open, while water reservoir levels need to increase before the south ramp can be inserted.

All water vessels must carry at least one wearable life jacket approved by the Coast Guard for each person on board. An additional throwable flotation device is needed if the boat is longer than 16 feet.
Every motorized boat must have an aquatic nuisance species stamp before launching onto Spinney Mountain Reservoir. Inspections may be done at the park or other available CPW offices.
