IMPORTANT: Boat Ramp/Inspection Hours Update

Due to staffing limitations related to COVID-19 as well as the continued high water impacting ramp access, we have had to make adjustments to our originally posted 2020 ramp and decontamination hours. 

Currently only the North Ramp is open. The South Ramp remains closed due to high water.

Current hours: 

  • North Ramp/Inspections open 6am to 7pm.  
  • Decon: open 8 am to 4 pm.

Starting April 1: 

  • North Ramp/Inspections open 6am to 8 pm.   
  • Decon: open 8am to 4pm.

It is our goal to open the South Ramp and go to normal summer hours for inspections and decontaminations on April 18, though most dates and times are subject to change. We will post updated information, dates and hours as they are determined. More information: see the boat inspections page.


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Lake Pueblo, rated a fishing “hot spot,” provides over 4,600 surface acres of water, 60 miles of shorelin​​e and almost 10,000 acres of land. Along with the sunny days and a mild year-round climate, visitors quickly learn that one day is not enough.

Full service marinas and a diversity of campsites welcome guests to stay awhile. Water recreation includes sailing, motor-boating, waterskiing, river tubing and prime fishing. Boaters choose from two full-service marinas and boat ramps.

Land recreation includes hiking, biking, picnicking and diverse nature exploration. Miles of trails make it easy to discover the beauty of the shady Arkansas River below the dam or the wonder of 200-year-old Juniper trees. Wet or dry activities culminate with camping options that encourage a day of play to become a mini-vacation.

Views of the Greenhorn and Wet mountain ranges to the southwest and the magnificent Pikes Peak to the north are a splendid way to end the day. It is no wonder that Lake Pueblo State Park is a favorite destination.

Additional Boat Ramp/ANS Inspection Info

  • You must be AT THE STATION with your boat before closing time to receive your inspection and seal.
