Credit: Colorado Parks and Wildlife press release
AURORA, Colo. - Cherry Creek State Park will be changing to fall season hours at the East and West Boat Ramps beginning October 1. The new hours for the Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) inspection station will be 6:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. daily at the East Boat Ramp. The West Boat Ramp inspection station will remain open until October 31 from 6:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays only. All trailered vessels must go through an Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) inspection prior to launching. Boaters who wish to launch outside of those hours must obtain a seal from a certified ANS boat inspector during business hours and complete the registration form provided at each boat ramp prior to launch. Remember to always clean, drain, and dry your vessel to help prevent the spread of ANS.
Due to late season conditions, boaters should look for possible floating debris, and always be aware that unmarked hazards may exist. If debris or hazards are discovered please notify park staff. Before boating, check that your vessel has all of the required safety items on board. Cherry Creek Reservoir will be closed to boating for the winter season beginning November 30 or earlier if ice develops.
