Turn off the TV and turn on the adventure! Vallecito Recreation area is the place to celebrate life the-Rocky-Mountain way, and, the place to start is Doc’s Marina. Doc’s is the hub for all activities involving the main attraction: THE LAKE! Whether or not you have a vessel, an hour or a week, all of you and your family’s aquatic dreams begin here.
Doc’s Marina has a plethora of ways to get out on the water, from the thrill of the catch aboard “The Pike Slayer” to carving your way behind a ski boat, you are bound to feel a sense of awe. After all, it seems a bit surreal to be soaking in the sun or water at 8,000 feet above sea level, with a backdrop of snow-covered mountain peaks in the distance. This body of mountain-fed water is as fresh as it gets and the fish like it too. Plenty of Pike, Trout, Bass, Walleye, and Salmon call Lake Vallecito “home.”
Be the hero and make someone’s day! The next time you plan to commemorate a special date, consider renting a 12-person pontoon boat for a fun-filled day on the lake. Afterwards, head back into the marina to cook up your fresh catch on one of Doc’s “floating” deck BBQ grills! The deck is also available for private party rentals.
Ornithologists, aka, bird nerds (said with affection) and shutterbugs unite! Be it by canoe, paddle or power boat, one-hundred-foot Ponderosa Pines with Osprey nests as big as your tent, some visible only by boat, are waiting for you! Osprey included... There’s a good chance you’ll also see Great Blues, Mountain Blue Birds, Cliff Swallows, Bald Eagles and Northern Flickers along the 12 miles of shoreline, too.
Your four-legged friend is welcome aboard pontoon boat rentals for an additional fee. Call for reservations and be sure to ask about our half-price discount days. Marine gas is included in all rental boats. Bon Voyage!
Set sail in Vallecito and leave your worries behind. Doc’s Marina offers self-service slips and moorings for your sailboats, houseboats, and powerboats by the night, week, or month. Experienced dockhands are ready and willing to assist you with fueling and with docking. Bring your “pic-a-nic basket” and eat out on the sparkling waters, or get a flavor of this unique little community by eating at one of the local hangouts. Beware! “Lakees” have a strong play ethic, and you may be charmed into staying longer than anticipated. A day can easily become a week!
Do not forget your hiking boots, bicycles, horses, and waders! The San Juan National Forest beckons with all sorts of recreational activities for all ages.
