Mark your calendars! Based on the following schedule, the 2023 Reservoir Use Permits will be available here, on the Town’s website. In the meantime, all current 2022 permits will remain valid through March 31, 2023 to access the reservoir.
On February 28, 2023, Town Council amended the Timnath Reservoir Use Policy. While there were minor changes made to the policy for 2023, the most significant changes were to allow for 65 annual motorized boat permits and to reduce the overall length of any boat on the reservoir to 24.
Timnath Reservoir is an exciting open space unique to Timnath. The use of the reservoir property is available to properly permitted residents, future Timnath residents, Colorado anglers, and their guests. The property is owned by the New Cache La Poudre Reservoir Company and is leased by the Town of Timnath for recreational purposes.
Timnath Reservoir has a surface area of approximately 580-600 acres with a 6-mile perimeter with a scenic backdrop of the Rocky Mountains to the west. The reservoir and open space are utilized for aquatic activities such as boating, fishing, kayaking, and swimming.
The reservoir is a man-made water body used by the reservoir company for irrigation purposes. The reservoir water levels will fluctuate seasonally in response to irrigation demands.
