Shoreline CLOSURE 6/13/2018
Due to high fire risk Mancos State Park has closed portions of the facility. Including the shoreline with the exception of the rip-rap of the dam face and shoreline fishing areas on either side of the dam. Appropriately inspected craft may still be launched from the boat ramp, however, there is no other shoreline access from the craft.
This closure is expected to last at minimum through 7/13/2018.
All boating at Jackson Gulch is wakeless. There is one concrete boat ramp in excellent condition on the southeast side of Jackson Gulch Reservoir at Mancos State Park. A courtesy dock will be available in the summer months, when water levels allow.
All trailered and motorized boats are required to have a pre-launch inspection for ANS (Aquatic Nuisance Species). Boat inspections are available at the park in the summer. For off season inspections please call Mancos (970) 533-7065 the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Durango office (970) 247-0855 or the Lone Mesa State Park Office in Dolores(970) 882-2213.
The boat ramp is closed from mid-October until spring (once the ice melts). Please see park conditions for boating updates.
