Douglas Res SWA Closed Temporarily (Hopefully)

The Douglas Reservoir State Wildlife Area will be closed temporarily until a new lease is signed between Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the property owners. Negotiations have been ongoing for months, but the renewed lease was not finalized before the previous agreement expired on October 31. Due to safety and liability concerns, CPW properties require active leases for recreation operations to resume. The SWA will reopen when the new lease is complete.

Does anyone know if Douglas Lake was reopened to the public?

I was out there this morning and the gates and the barricades have been removed. So back open to the public.
