Willard Bay State Park

Current Conditions

Due to low water levels, the launch ramps at Willard Bay State Park are now closed. Launch at your own risk. Learn more about other Utah State Parks boat ramp conditions HERE.

Ice is Never 100% Safe! — Do not judge ice safety on thickness alone. Ice does not form or maintain a uniform thickness. Snow, wind, slush, temperature, and other factors can cause ice thickness and strength to vary greatly, even within inches. Recreate on ice at your own risk and verify ice thickness as you head out. Click here to learn more ice safety tips.
