Boat Ramp Conditions

Water level and boat ramp at Millsite State Park, May 2021

Water levels at many Utah state parks are experiencing extreme lows. When reservoirs reach these levels, some parks are forced to close their boat launch ramps in order to help better protect visitors and their property.

Low water levels may also expose additional navigation hazards and decrease the overall amount of boatable water. As such, it is essential that boaters remain vigilant and follow Utah’s boating laws, rules, and safety practices. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Checking reservoir and boat ramp status before getting on the road. Impacted launch ramps and low reservoirs may increase wait times.
  • Operating at a wakeless speed within 150 feet of another vessel, fishing dock, swimmer, etc.
  • Following the rules on common waterway markers
  • Ensuring children are wearing appropriate USCG-approved life jackets and you are following all life jacket laws
  • Ensuring children have taken appropriate education courses before operating a vessel
  • Not operating a vessel under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Avoid boating at night. It is always extremely dangerous and should be avoided if possible
  • Not swimming around boats that have engines or generators running due to the risk of propeller cuts and carbon monoxide poisoning
