Antelope Point Public Launch Ramp Opens June 6 2014
The Antelope Point public launch ramp will open on Friday, June 6th, 2014. Boaters should still be aware that while the ramp is open, launching at these water levels is not safe for all sizes of boats and launching is at your own risk.
Launch ramp hours will no longer be restricted for quagga mussel prevention. In addition, green mussel free certificates are no longer required. NPS staff will focus on checking for evidence of attached mussels on boats entering and leaving the lake. Rangers on the ramps, at the marinas, and along beaches will educate visitors on how to stop the spread of mussels with Clean, Drain, and Dry techniques.
Utah and Arizona state laws require that boat owners decontaminate their vessels and conveyances to avoid the transport of quagga mussels to uninfested waters. Specific information on state laws for Utah can be found at www.wildlife.utah.gov/mussels or for Arizona at www.azgfd.gov/ais.
