Lake Nighthorse to open seasonally to motorized boating

Environmental assessment complete, but tribal, city negotiations will precede before public opening
The environmental assessment for the Lake Nighthorse recreation plan allows for some future developments such as natural surface trails connecting the lake to the Animas River Trail and a loop on the reservoir’s eastern side.
The Bureau of Reclamation has completed an environmental assessment for the Lake Nighthorse recreation plan. But the agency has many months of work ahead, including striking a lease agreement with the city of Durango and negotiating with 25 tribes on a cultural resource management plan.
Work was done on the new boat inspection area in April at the entrance of Lake Nighthorse and County Road 210.w
