UTAH (ABC4) – Utah’s drought continues to be a problem, leading to many of the state’s parks deciding to close their boat ramps.
The water levels at many of the state’s parks are experiencing extreme lows, causing navigation hazards and decreasing the amount of boatable water.
Before heading out for your lake day, be sure to check your reservoir’s boat ramp status as conditions continue to change.
Currently, ten boat ramps are closed throughout the state.
Antelope Island Main Ramp off the causeway is currently closed as the Great Salt Lake continues to drop to historic lows.
At Bear Lake, the Rendezvous Beach ramp is closed and Rainbow Cove is under an advisory.
Echo State Park Boat ramp is currently closed and is under construction.
Salt Lake County
Historic lows have removed all boats from the Great Salt Lake Marina and the ramp currently has an advisory for its boat ramp.
At Jordanelle State Park, the Rock Cliff Ramp and Ross Creek (non-motorized) are currently closed. Boaters are still able to launch at the main ramp.
Quail Creek State Park’s South Ramp is closed to launching but the North Ramp is open to watercraft.
Box Elder County
Both the south and north ramps are closed at Willard Bay State Park.
