Fruita State Parks is the best boat launch in the Grand Valley. The park is a full-service RV park with showers and a black water dump tank. In the parking area near the ramp is an actual bathroom with flushing toilets and running water to wash your hands. The ramp is well constructed and provides a good flow for loading and unloading. There are a couple of lakes here where you can fish and/or paddle around. Boat ramps, and State Parks, don’t get much better than this.
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.
