EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado – A grand opening celebration for Dotsero Landing, a property along the Colorado River acquired by the Eagle County Open Space Program in 2011, will take place at 4:30 p.m. Monday. All river enthusiasts and interested community members are invited to attend. Recently completed site improvements include a boat launch, an expanded parking area and a vault restroom.

Dotsero Landing is located approximately six miles downstream from the Cottonwood Island Boat Launch, with vehicle access available via Cotton Lane. The site offers public access to fishing and floating, with additional future improvements to include interpretive signs and picnic tables. A $3 fee will be charged to users of the property to help cover the cost of maintenance.

The 8.5-acre site is the third in a series of Colorado River access improvement projects completed by Eagle County this year. State Bridge River Access and Two Bridges River Access both opened earlier in the summer with new boat launches, improved parking areas and restroom facilities.

Funding for the $650,000 Dotsero Landing property, as well as site improvements, came from the county’s dedicated Open Space Fund.
