Fred Hayes State Park at Starvation


Our boating season at Fred Hayes State Park at Starvation/Starvation Reservoir starts near the end of May and runs through the middle of September.  If you come once there is a good chance you will come again after you see what a fantastic boating water Starvation really is.  With a water surface area of 3,500 acres, there are plenty of places to get away from the crowd and enjoy your “mini Lake Powell.”  Water temperatures reach a balmy 73-74 degrees in the summer, and the water is crystal clear and clean.  Starvation is a great destination whether you are a powerboat enthusiast or a non-power boat enthusiast.

If you don’t own a boat of your own, Club Rec. offers a boat rental service at the Fred Hayes State Park Beach/main boat ramp area.  You can call them at 801-614-0500 or 435-738-0440 locally to make your reservation or you can visit their website at

Fred Hayes State Park at Starvation has two courtesy docks, an overnight dock with slip rentals, and a concrete boat ramp with a wedge dock.  Boaters are allowed to park their vessels along the shore near their campsites in many of our campgrounds.

Because of the threat of quagga mussels entering the reservoir on an incoming vessel, we encourage all boaters to launch their boat at the main ramp where the boat can be inspected and given a green light to launch.
