This isn’t a very good launch but it has been gaining in popularity with users that choose to takeout here instead of paying fees at the state park. Seems odd considering how good the facilities are at the Fruita Sate Park are but it speaks to it’s users not needing anything fancy when it comes to a place to get their boat off the water to head home. It seems there is a place and a need for both. Technically this isn’t a boat launch but it is legal access to the river, at least for now. Perhaps in the future The City of Fruita will take a que from Los Colonias and build an awesome river park on the property owned by the city across the river.
Snooks Bottom is owned and run by the City of Fruita. There is no access to the river however the lake is a good place to go fishing or paddle around in a kayak or SUP board.
