EVRPD to Open 60th Season at the Lake Estes Marina on Saturday, May 5

Estes Valley Recreation and Park District (EVRPD), the provider of numerous recreational opportunities in Estes Valley, announced today the opening date for the Lake Estes Marina. Starting Saturday, May 5, boats can be launched into Lake Estes and boat rentals will begin at the marina store for the summer 2018 season. The hours for the marina store will also expand to seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This opening marks the beginning of the 60th season of EVRPD’s management of the Lake Estes Marina. The district, which was called Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Recreation District (RMMRD) when it first started managing the recreation on Lake Estes, sold the first boat permit in early May, 1958, after taking over operations from the Lake Estes Boat Service. At various times, concessionaires were employed to help with the day-to-day operations.
