Hours of operation have changed in preparation for the winter season at Horsetooth Reservoir and Carter Lake. These hours are subject to change based on water levels and weather conditions.  Water levels at Horsetooth Reservoir have declined due to ongoing maintenance work on dam infrastructure being conducted by Northern Water.
