Highline Lake State Park Dredging Completed (USA)

Colorado Parks and Wildlife announced that the dredging work at Highline Lake State Park has been completed.

The dredging operation removed years of silt buildup that will significantly enhance water recreation at the popular park, located northwest of Fruita.

We thank the public for their patience while the work has been going on,” said Park Manager Alan Martinez.The project was successful and we invite everyone to come out and enjoy one of the best boating opportunities in the Grand Valley.”

The East boat ramp had been closed for over three years due to a deep buildup of silt.

The dredging restored a deep channel out to the lake from the East Bay making it accessible to boaters.

The West boat ramp remains open as well.

In addition, the work uncovered the dam outlet structure allowing divers to perform safety inspections and testing.

Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) and Colorado Lottery provided $1,070,000 for the project; however, the project’s total costs to date are $870,000.

Boaters are reminded to follow all boating laws and regulations, including having all required safety equipment on board and following all aquatic nuisance species inspection requirements.
