As your location around Colorado changes, so does your boating experience. Consider a peaceful excursion on a serene alpine lake, a pine-tree corralled body of water that supports a fleet of sailboats or canoes. Or hold tight as your motorboat and water skis zip across the waters of a Colorado State Park reservoir on the sun-collecting eastern prairie or vast reservoirs of the Western Slope. Jet boating on the Colorado River is another way to feel the wind whip through your hair.

No matter what type of boating adventure you're looking for, the secluded coves and acres of placid waters of Colorado make for an adventurous and extended stay.

If you do come to Colorado carrying a boat, be sure it adheres to all state licensing before your hull touches water. For information on boat registration and Colorado's boatable waters, contact the Colorado State Park system. Horsepower limits also apply to various bodies of water, so make sure your motors don’t overpower what’s allowed.
