Stampede Reservoir Boating

While Stampede Reservoir has limited boating facilities, its cold, clear mountain water makes it a popular destination for boaters. Several boat ramps provide easy access into the reservoir. Waterskiers and wakeboarders are often seen on the lake.

Sailors and windsurfers like the stiff, steady winds and fishermen enjoy guiding their crafts into sheltered bays and inlets in search of kokanee salmon and trout.
