Douglas Reservoir State Wildlife Area closed temporarily

Colorado Parks and Wildlife

The Douglas Reservoir State Wildlife Area north of Fort Collins will be closed temporarily until a new lease is signed between Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the property owners.

Negotiations have been ongoing for months, but the renewed lease was not finalized before the previous agreement expired October 31.

Due to safety and liability concerns, CPW properties require active leases for recreation operations to resume.

The SWA will reopen when the new lease is complete.
