What is the plan for Standup Paddle Boarding?

It is an exciting summer to come to the reservoir!  For 2019, we offer organized SUP/Kayak rentals and classes that are coordinated through Colorado Standup Sports. These classes utilize new boards that are stored securely onsite at the reservoir and only used at Rueter-Hess.   Click: Colorado SUP for more information and to register for a session today!

Additionally.... Personal watercraft may be brought into the reservoir on any of the personal "Paddle Day" events (15 offered in 2019).   To avoid mussels (i.e., "invasive species") into the water supply all watercraft require inspection prior to launching into the reservoir.
