Launch at your own risk!
The public is asked to use extreme caution when using the public launch ramps at Lake Powell. The decrease in water levels has reduced the depth of water in these areas, creating shallow water on the ramps with steep drop-offs. More »
2012 Updated Regulations Available for Glen Canyon and Rainbow Bridge
Superintendent Todd Brindle announced today the availability of the 2012 Superintendent's Compendium for Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Rainbow Bridge National Monument. The Superintendent's Compendium lists the designations, closures, permit requirements, and other restrictions that are applicable within the boundaries of both national park areas.
The Superintendent's Compendium continues to note the requirement that all boaters on Lake Powell obtain and display a "Mussel-Free" certificate prior to launching their vessel. New requirements are also listed for proper storage of food and garbage to deter entry by wildlife.
The National Park Service uses the Superintendent's Compendium to publicize regulations that protect park resources, provide for public health and safety, and avoid conflicts among visitor uses. The Superintendent's Compendium is updated on an annual basis or more frequently when necessary. The complete 2012 Superintendent's Compendium is available at park headquarters, visitor centers and on the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area website at: www.nps.gov/glca by clicking "Management Docs."
