The waters at Chatfield are open to boating. Both the north boat ramps and the south boat ramps are open. ANS Inspections are from 6 a.m. - 8 p.m. daily
A current boat registration is required to launch. To boat on the reservoir, a pre-launch boat inspection for Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) is MANDATORY for all motorized (non-electric) vessels, and trailered vessels (where the trailer enters the water). For more information on boat inspections, please visit our boating page.
Please CLEAN, DRAIN, and DRY your boat between every lake. Children under 13 are required to wear lifejackets while on the water!
With the fluctuation of stream flows, boaters should always watch carefully for floating debris in the reservoir.
