As Utah’s newest state park, Echo State Park has a long rich history of outdoor recreation to include camping, boating and fishing.  The dam and reservoir (1,394 surface acres) were constructed by the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) during the Great Depression of the 1930s for agricultural irrigation and in the late 1960s, local Coalville area residents began running the recreation concessions for the reservoir and resort on the property.

In late 2017 the BOR contacted Utah State Parks concerning the recreational management of the federal property.  Echo State Park joins eleven other BOR parks where the Utah Division of Parks and Recreation manages the recreational operations on the water body.  Conveniently located in northeastern Utah, Echo State Park boasts year-round recreation opportunities for its visitors. Echo State Park offers primitive camping and a day-use area with easy beach access.

Remember you must self-certify and display your quagga form PRIOR to launching your vessel. If you have been to contaminated water, including Lake Powell, you must Clean, Drain, and Dry your vessel or be professionally decontaminated prior to launching at another water body.  The dry time during spring is 18 days.  If you have been to Lake Powell or out-state-waters, and if you have a more complex boat with ballast tanks, in/outboard motors with unverified water, etc, then you must wait 30 days to dry or get professionally decontaminated regardless of the time of year.   Mussels are getting into ballast tanks and sea strainers after being in Lake Powell one time.
