Please note that the boat ramp at Pinewood Reservoir is closed for the season. New rules from the Bureau of Reclamation, which owns Horsetooth, Carter Lake and Pinewood reservoirs, require boat ramps to be locked unless an aquatic nuisance species (ANS) inspector is present. At Pinewood Reservoir, ANS inspectors will not be present this season, so no trailered boats are allowed on the water there. Also, boat ramps at Horsetooth and Carter Lake will be closed from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. under the current boating schedule. Read more about the new rules.
