Just in time for another season of fun on Lake Powell, the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area staff reports, in partnership with ARAMARK, completion of the Castle Rock Cut excavation which lowered the bottom elevation to 3580’, which is just about where the lake stands right now so another few feet of water could make the cut passable for some shallow draft vessels soon.

Funds from project user fees were used to complete the project. Use of this shortcut to uplake areas will be dependent on lake levels and the draft of each vessel.  As the lake rises, boaters are asked to exercise caution and use the cut at their own risk.

Meanwhile, construction on the Bullfrog main launch ramp has also been completed with funds from project user fees and assistance from ARAMARK. The concrete surface was extended to an elevation of 3570’ and widened by an additional 40 feet.  The ramp is fully operational and at current lake levels provides approximately 8 – 9 feet of water depth at the end of the ramp.

Antelope Point public ramp remains closed to launching due to water levels.  Stateline ramp is scheduled to open May 22.
