With the requirement of the ANS stamp on all registered boats, funding for the ANS program at RIfle Gap will allow the boat ramp to be opened. All boats must be inspected at the ANS inspection station.
Visitors with boats registered out-of-state must purchase a yearly ANS Stamp in order to launch in Colorado. You may purchase one before you visit at CPWshop.com, or come by the Visitor Center to purchase. These stamps expire on December 31.
Non-motorized hand launched kayaks,canoes,rafts,belly boats,float tubes, paddle boards, and foldable boats are exempt and do NOT need to be inspected.
NEW THIS YEAR: There will be no entry to the boat ramp after the inspection station closes. The gate to the inbound lane will close each evening when the inspection station closes. If you are wanting to night fish, please have your boat past the gate before the closure. A one-way spike strip was installed in the outbound lane, allowing traffic to leave at any time of the night.
If you have any questions about the inspection process, feel free to contact the park at any time.
Thank you for your support in keeping our waters free of destructive aquatic wildlife!
