Timnath Reservoir

Colorado is best known for its world-famous ski slopes, however, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy the great outdoors in the Centennial State all year long. With an average of over 300 days of sunshine, Timnath, Colorado is the ultimate summertime oasis for local residents seeking adventure right in their backyard.

The Town of Timnath leases the Timnath Reservoir year-round, offering private access for residents and their guests. “Shore Use” passes are issued by the Town to all current residents at no charge, offering fishing, picnicking, and access to the Timnath Open Space all year long. Activities such as operating a motorized or non-motorized boat, fishing from a boat, and water skiing and swimming off a boat require assorted “Surface Use” passes and permits. These permits and passes are available to Timnath residents for a small fee. Please complete a Timnath Reservoir Boating Permit Application if you would like to register your boat for the upcoming season. For your convenience, applications can be submitted with their fees online. Whether you enjoy boating, fishing, swimming, or picnicking, we hope you’ll make the Reservoir a regular part of your life in Timnath.
