Spinney Mountain State Park Opening for the 2023 Season

Ivan Orsic / Apr 16, 2023

It's always a welcome sign that spring is upon us when you visit the Spinney Mountain State Park website and are greeted with a PARK ALERT! PARK ALERT! PARK ALERT!


Spinney Mountain State Park will open for the Season on Friday, April 21, 2023 at 5:47 a.m. - Sunrise is at 6:17 a.m. Due to low water level, it is be open to shoreline fishing and hand-launch vessels only. We will have boat inspectors there at that time. Per the City of Aurora the water level on April 9th is 48%. Enjoy your season!

Get your waders, float tubes, fins, drift boats, drift socks, indicator rigs, big nets, and fish tape ready because the beginning of stillwater season is upon us. The reservoirs in South Park are going to start shedding their ice and some eager, early-season stillwater trout are going scouring the depths for protein as the warm season begins. Give us a shout or stop by the shops if you need help getting geared up for stillwater season.
