Harvey Gap and Rifle Gap State Parks will open for boating on Sunday, April 1. Due to early season conditions, boaters must keep a lookout for possible floating debris and always be aware that unmarked hazards may exist. If debris or hazards are discovered, please notify the park staff.
Before boating, check that your vessel has all of the required safety items on board.
All trailered vessels must go through an aquatic nuisance species (ANS) inspection prior to launching. The ramp will be open for ANS inspection from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. daily. If you wish to boat outside of those hours, you must obtain a seal from a certified ANS boat inspector and go through the proper pre-inspection procedure. Remember to always clean, drain, and dry your vessel to help prevent the spread of ANS.
