2013 Spring Operational Hours for Glen Canyon National Recreation Area

Subscribe RSS Icon | What is RSS
Date: March 28, 2013

Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and its concessioners are expanding operational hours and opening facilities parkwide for the spring season.

With the closure of Hwy 89, Colorado River Discovery has adapted the types and number of tours available on the Colorado River below the dam. Half-day and full-day tours will begin at the base of the dam. An additional tour will begin at Lees Ferry for a half-day run to the petroglyph panel and return to the Lees Ferry launch ramp.

Glen Canyon asks visitors to play it safe while in the park. Bring water, snacks, hats, sunglasses and sunscreen - and use them. Visitors on the water should wear life jackets. Cliff jumping is not recommended and illegal at 15' or greater. Boating after dark is discouraged due to sub-surface water hazards.

Boaters are reminded that all vessels launching on Lake Powell are required to be certified zebra mussel free prior to launching. Violators face mandatory court appearance and up to a $5000.00 fine or six months in jail.
