On Saturday morning (August 14) the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area closed the main Wahweap Launch Ramp at Lake Powell. The unprecedented move was expected, due to the low water level of the lake.

Vessels up to 36 feet in length and 8 feet 6 inches wide may utilize the Wahweap Auxiliary Ramp from 6 a.m. MST until 7:30 p.m. MST daily. National Park Service staff have already begun to direct boaters to the Wahweap Auxiliary Ramp.  

Non-motorized vessels may continue to launch and retrieve from Wahweap Main Ramp. 

Wahweap Swim Beach and the associated parking area is also closed, due to construction activities at the Stateline Auxiliary Ramp. Lone Rock Beach and other undeveloped shorelines remain available for swimming. Visitors are reminded that swimming is prohibited at marinas and boat ramps.
