Motorists driving the 126-mile stretch of Utah State Highway 95 between Hanksville and Blanding, Utah will need sufficient fuel for their travel and recreational needs. The nearest towns to Hite with fuel available are Hanksville, Utah (51 miles to the west) and Blanding, Utah (79 miles to the east).

Beginning April 1, the Hite retail store, pay-at-the-pump fuel service, the visitor comfort station, and designated camping areas will be closed. Public restrooms are available at the Hite Ranger Station, located in the building’s breezeway. A fresh drinking water spigot and RV sewer dump station service will remain open and available for public use.
