Ridgway State Park south shoreline closed to vehicles
Colorado Parks and Wildlife
Users can still park at the Bay View parking lot nearby and then walk to the shoreline and place hand-launched craft in the water.

Dogs must be kept on a leash to the waters edge. Pet owners must remove any dog waste.

"This area usually closes every year as the water rises," said Kirstin Copeland, park manager. "But this year we are seeing much more use and some congestion in this area."

The area will reopen when the water levels drop and conditions are appropriate.

Outstanding camping facilities are available at Ridgway State Park with 283 campsites and three yurts. The daily entry fee to the park is $7 per vehicle. Camp sites range in price from $18 to $26.
