Jackson Gulch Reservoir at Mancos State Park is a great place for hand-powered crafts such as kayaks and canoes and sailboats. Jackson Gulch is a “wakeless” lake—boaters cannot create a wake here. To ensure a safe and pleasant experience for all boaters, please observe the Colorado Boating Statutes and Regulations, also available at the park entrance. View the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Boating Program information.
