PAGE, Arizona, Aug. 13, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Boaters are advised that the Wahweap Main Ramp will be closed to motorized vessels beginning Monday, Aug. 16 due to low water conditions.

“Vessels up to 36 feet in length and 8 feet 6 inches wide may utilize the Wahweap Auxiliary Ramp from 6 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. daily,” according to a news release from the National Park Service.

“Wahweap Swim Beach and the associated parking area will also close on Monday, Aug. 16, due to construction activities at the Stateline Auxiliary Ramp,” the news release said. “Lone Rock Beach and other undeveloped shorelines remain available for swimming. Visitors are reminded that swimming is prohibited at marinas and boat ramps.”
