CLOSURE OF PORTIONS OF
MANCOS STATE PARK

P 970-882-2213  |  F 970-882-4640

Closure of portions of Mancos State Park

In response to the exceptionally high fire risk in the area, we are
instituting a "no public access" closure of portions of Mancos State
Park to include all trails, campsites 25-33 (along the west and north
sides of the reservoir), the "west road" accessing those sites, the
reservoir shoreline with the exception of the rip-rap of the dam face
and shoreline fishing areas on either end of the dam.  The Group
Picnic Area, boating access, shoreline fishing access in the area
described above, the main campground (campsites 1-24A) and the
two yurts will remain open.

We are working on implementation now, including maps and
additional information but wanted to give you the heads-up as soon
as possible. We are calling affected camping reservations directly.


Mancos State Parks will still require boats to be inspected/have seal
prior to launch and will provide inspections.  Their plans at Jackson
won't change much from what they have done in the past.  Their loss
of budget will reduce the number of open entrance station hours a
bit...but we'll still have the staff and hosts certified as inspectors and
provide inspections and decontaminations.  The decontamination unit
will remain on site.
The Board of Directors on September 12, 2017 Voted to
proceed with title transfer of the project features.
EXCEPT FOR THE DAM .
The Board of Directors are moving forword with
Title Transfer of the Project Features. Below you
can see our information.
Please contact a Board Member or myself if you
have questions.
If and when Congress acts on the transfer then
there will be negotiations with the Bureau of
Reclamation.
