Coleto Creek Park staff will perform maintenance work on the Coleto Creek Park boat ramp Jan. 13−17, 2014, temporarily closing the ramp and dock until work is completed.

“All launching of boats will be restricted that week.  GBRA staff has scheduled this maintenance to take advantage of the current low reservoir level, which will allow easier access to perform the needed maintenance,” Wilfred Korth, Coleto Creek Park chief ranger explained.  It also is a good time of year to perform maintenance because of the low volume of recreationalists using the reservoir, he added.

Park staff expects the boat ramp to reopen for normal usage by Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014.   Park and reservoir users may contact the Coleto Creek Park Office at 361-575-6366 to inquire about status of the ramp opening.  “We appreciate the patience of our constituents while our staff performs this necessary maintenance during this time,” Korth said.

Coleto Creek Park and Reservoir are located midway between Victoria and Goliad off of Highway 59 where users have enjoyed outdoor recreational opportunities, including camping, picnicking, and fishing for more than 30 years.

The GBRA was established by the Texas Legislature in 1933 as a water conservation and reclamation district. GBRA provides stewardship for the water resources in its 10-county statutory district, which begins near the headwaters of the Guadalupe and Blanco rivers, ends at San Antonio Bay, and includes Kendall, Comal, Hays, Caldwell, Guadalupe, Gonzales, DeWitt, Victoria, Calhoun, and Refugio counties.
