Lake Powell marina closed due to low water conditions

Lake Powell, Utah — Due to what officials call “unprecedented low water conditions,” a marina at Lake Powell will be closed throughout all of 2022.

The Dangling Rope Marina in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is a popular mid-lake fuel location for boaters on the lake.

According to officials, they are attempting to come up with other options, but are hampered by “lake levels that continue to decline inherent challenges associated with the infrastructure needed to power and operate a fuel system, and operational considerations related to safety, staffing, and resources.”

“Dangling Rope is part of the park’s comprehensive drought response efforts. We know Dangling Rope is important to our visitors and is also extremely important to the National Park Service and our operations,” said Superintendent William Shott.

As the distance between fuel locations at the Wahweap and Bullfrog areas is approximately 100 miles, with the closing of the marina, boaters are being warned to plan ahead.
