Gunlock State Park


From Jon Allred Gunlock State Park Manager

Boaters be aware that Gunlock does not currently have the capabilities to decontaminate boats coming from Lake Powell, Lake Meade or other contaminated waters.  To avoid frustration and additional travel please plan your trip and get decontaminated before coming to the lake and have your decontamination certificate and clean blue tag still attached to your vessel.  We are searching every boat in our AIS system before they allowed to launch and turning away boats that do not meet required decontamination standards and sending them to be decontaminated.  Decontamination is available at the Port of Entry just South of St George on I-15 or at Sand Hollow State Park.  Once you are decontaminated you can enter and enjoy a great day on the lake.  We are doing this to protect our waterways and reservoirs from  contamination.  Help us by planning to be decontaminated as soon as possible after boating on contaminated waters.

Dry times are 30 days year round for boats with inboard motors, ballast tanks or sea strainers.  These boats remain at 30 days dry time year round.

June July and August Kayaks, SUP, Jet boats/skis and simple outboard motors without ballast tanks are 7 days dry time

Spring and fall 18 days and winter 30.

Thank you for your help as we keep our water clean and clear of invasive species.  And remember that our staff is required to protect our resources and appreciate your cooperation and patience.  Avoid serious fines and impoundment of your vessel by not following the rules.

Thank you
