Wahweap Main launch ramp is located next to the Lake Powell Resort at Wahweap. Due to low water, the ramp is not available to motorized vessels. Vessels smaller than 36' can use the Wahweap Auxiliary Ramp.


The main launch ramp in the Wahweap Marina area. Put your boat on Lake Powell here. Large enough for multiple boats, including houseboats, to launch at the same time. The ramp is long and changes when the lake level changes. Prepare for a long walk back down the ramp after you park your boat trailer. Courtesy docks have a thirty minute time limit. Fuel docks and pumpout station just downstream of ramp.

Mid-ramp, there is a turnoff that leads to parking for the private marina. It would be difficult to maneuver a boat trailer there, we do not recommend using that parking lot. 14-day parking is at the top of the ramp.

All boats exiting Lake Powell must follow decontamination protocols to keep quagga mussels and other aquatic invasive species out of other bodies of water. Check your home state's regulations. Always Clean, Drain, and Dry your vessel and gear.

Check ramp conditions before you arrive through the Wahweap Main Ramp Webcam.
