06/4/23: Pearl Lake is now opened to boating. Boaters will have to have their boats inspected at the Steamboat Lake ANS Inspection Station found in the Dutch Hill Campground before going on the water.
Late Summer Boat Ramp and ANS Inspection Hours (starting 8/14):
Monday - Wednesday: 8am - 4pm
Thursday: 8am - 8pm
Friday - Sunday: 7am -8pm
If an inspector is not at the ramp during regular inspection hours, please call the Visitor Center: (970)879-3922
The ramp will be gated and locked outside of inspection hours. It is illegal to launch or go around the gate to get on or off the water after it is closed. VIOLATORS WILL BE CITED!
Pristine and quiet with great fishing and wakeless-only boating, it’s what a mountain lake should be. In order to keep Pearl Lake and other lakes this way, all trailer launched vessels and those powered by motor or sail MUST be inspected prior to launch.
Inspections are available at the Steamboat Lake during the boating season.
