Welcome to Mt. Elbert Canoe & Kayak. We will be open May 30, for our 2024 summer session. Please feel free to give us a call if you have any question or need reservations. Our online reservation system is available for easy bookings. We look forward to seeing you! We are Dog friendly as long as your dog is well behaved.

Mt. Elbert Canoe & Kayak Ltd. would like to invite you, your family, and friends to explore beautiful Twin Lakes, Colorado. Whether you're a local, driving over Independence Pass from Aspen, or trying to get out of Denver's heat, you'll want to spend a day where the temperature doesn't go above 79 degrees. We have everything from camping, hiking, fishing, biking, and boating. If you ask us, we happen to think the best way to enjoy it all, is from the water. We now serve both Twin Lakes and Turquoise Reservoirs. Please see our Fare Harbor Reservation Feature to Book either Twin Lakes or Turquois Reservoirs. Walk In's are always welcome, but you'll want to make a reservation to assure you get a boat. Mt. Elbert Canoe will supply the canoe, single/tandem kayak, instructions, car straps/pads, paddles, oars, life jackets, safety horn, anchor and PFDs. All you need to do is make a reservation. Pack a picnic lunch. Bring your fishing gear, a hat, rain jacket, plenty of water and a smile. Don't forget your sunscreen.
