Marina Boat Rentals


Here at Elk Creek and Lake Fork Marinas, our philosophy revolves around delivering top-notch customer service and treating every guest like a cherished member of our extended family. Our dedicated staff members are well-versed in all aspects of our operations, from the variety of boats we offer to the array of services available and the merchandise in our inventory.


We take pride in our comprehensive selection, featuring a full range of watercraft including pontoon boats, stand-up paddleboards (SUPs), kayaks, canoes, aluminum boats, and boat slips. Many of our pontoon boats come equipped with Bimini tops and rod holders for added comfort and convenience. Should you desire, we also provide fishing equipment rentals to enhance your aquatic adventures. Rest assured, all our boats are outfitted with Colorado Boating Regulation safety equipment and Personal Flotation Devices to ensure a safe and enjoyable outing on the water.

Pontoon Boats and Fishing Boats

Set sail on the Blue Mesa with your entire family and friends aboard our spacious pontoons. Accommodating up to 8 occupants for Midsize and 10 for Large models, there's ample room for everyone to enjoy. Seek out your own private cove and immerse yourself in the tranquility of the reservoir. Please note, a maximum of 2 pets are allowed.

Kayaks, Canoes and Paddle Boards Rentals

Embrace a fresh perspective as you navigate the waters of Blue Mesa Reservoir on a kayak, canoe, or stand-up paddleboard (SUP). Discover hidden gems such as the Bay of Chickens or the Iola Basin near the Lake City Bridge, or venture into secluded canyons within the reservoir's various arms.

Boat Slips

We offer daily, weekly, monthly and seasonal boat slips.
