Chaos follows storm at Pueblo’s North Shore Marina


PUEBLO, Colo. — A severe windstorm caused such widespread damage to docks and boats at the North Shore Marina at Lake Pueblo State Park Saturday, that Colorado Parks and Wildlife was forced to evacuate the marina and close it indefinitely.

Boat and slip owner Jeff Mueller told FOX21 that even though the marina is closed, he was able to spot his boat, which appears to be safe. The same cannot be said for every boat that was docked at the marina Friday night.

Park Manager Monique Mullis said the private company that operates the North Shore Marina will contact each of the affected boat owners.

The North Ramp remains open for launching, loading and aquatic nuisance species inspections, Mullis said.

Those who have a boat docked in the North Shore Marina can call 719-251-3949 for more information.
