Standley Lake Regional Park Boating

Besides serving as a water storage facility, Standley Lake offers boating and fishing. However all boaters are required to have a boating permit in order to access the lake. There are no daily passes available for motorized boats. Only paddle craft can access the lake on a daily basis without a season permit.

Canoeing, paddle boarding, windsurfing, and sailing are some of the other activities enjoyed with a daily paddle craft permit. Sailboards, kayaks, and canoes are allowed two vessels per permit.

Standley Lake does not allow any type of watercraft including paddle boards, canoes, kayaks, inflatable rafts, or tubes to enter into the lake at any entrance point except the main park entrance located at 100th & Simms. Any and all watercraft must be sprayed in accordance with ANS regulations prior to launching. Failure to comply with this regulation will result in an automatic citation and a summons to court. Please call the Standley Lake Visitor's Center for more information at (303) 425-1097.

The lake is open for boating May 1 to September 30 from 7:30 a.m. to sunset. A four-lane boat ramp, near the main campground, allows for convenient boat launches.

All boats must meet ANS program guidelines before gaining access to the lake.

Boat registration
Any vessel on the lake requires a boat permit and must abide by all Colorado state boating rules and regulations. Boats must be registered through Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
