All cabanas are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Surface:  The reservoir is free of ice. Please use caution and watch for floating debris as the runoff begins and the water levels start to rise.

Launch Ramps:  The courtesy docks have been installed at both ramps for the season. The Rock Cliff boat ramp remains out of the water. The Ross Creek non-motorized boat ramp remains out of the water. Remember, this is for non-motorized use only!

Aquatic Invasive Species: You must self-decontaminate for Aquatic Invasive Species/mussels if you have been to contaminated water including Lake Powell.  You must be dry for 18 days in the spring for simple boats like sailboats and non-motorized vessels (ex. paddle boards) or be professionally decontaminated before you launch at another water body.  If you have a more complex boat with ballast tanks or in/outboard motors with unverified water, 30 days of dry time is required regardless of the time of year, or professional decontamination must be completed before you launch at another body of water.

Our decontamination station is CLOSED for the season. If you need decontamination, please contact the DWR Central Office Biologist at 435-503-4066 to make an appointment. If you have been to Lake Powell and your boat has ballast tanks, you must be decontaminated regardless of the time the boat has been out of the water.  This is due to the major infestation at Powell.  Mussels are appearing on boats that are there less than a week.
