Distant snow-capped mountains with evergreen forests dipping to the shoreline provide the backdrop for two of the most scenic high mountain lakes in Colorado: Grand Lake and Shadow Mountain Lake. Become “one” with the scenic beauty – enjoy a boating experience with Trail Ridge Marina.
Trail Ridge Marina is conveniently located along busy U.S. Highway 34 near the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. We’re 2 ½ miles south of Grand Lake and 25 minutes north of Winter Park. You can explore the natural beauty of the area, fish, picnic, and travel by boat to the town of Grand Lake and tie up to the town pier for some shopping and dining, or just relax in the sun. We offer the exact type of rental boat to meet the experience you are seeking – spacious pontoon boats, pleasure boats, and fishing boats.
Shadow Mountain and Grand Lake offer some of the best fishing in Colorado. Rainbow trout, brown trout, brook trout, Mackinaw (Lake Trout), and Kokanee are very abundant.
You are welcome at any time, but reservations for rental boats are suggested. For boat owners looking for a port to call home, Trail Ridge offers slip and dock rentals and mechanic services. Gas, fishing gear, boating supplies, and snacks are always available. We cater to morning fisherman as well as afternoon adventurers.
