HITE, UT is a remote ranger station located at the top of Lake Powell, adjacent to the confluence of the Colorado and Dirty Devil Rivers. There are currently no water-based facilities
within the Hite Ranger District. The North public launch ramp is concrete. The South public launch ramp is gravel. Watercraft launching at Farley & Blue Notch Canyons are
primitive dirt ramps. At current lake levels, none of these launch ramps are in service. The river raft take out ramp is gravel. Boat launching is at your own risk. Four wheel drive
vehicles are recommended for all launching. Contact Hite Ranger Station for current conditions. Land based facilities include the Hite Ranger Station with emergency services,
visitor information, public restrooms, and a fish cleaning station. A convenience store is open daily except during the winter season with gasoline & diesel fuel available year
round. Lodging and RV full hookup sites are available upon reservation with the park concessioner Aramark. Primitive camping is allowed along the shoreline, campground, and designated
backcountry sites. RV and portable toilet dump stations are available. Potable water fill stations are also available. Backcountry Permits for Orange Cliffs are issued by the Hans Flat Ranger
station at 435-259-2652. Jeep trails, backpacking, canyoneering, mountain biking, cycling, canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing, and fishing are some of the many recreational opportunities.
River rafting down famous Cataract Canyon from Moab to Hite is also a favorite. The city of Blanding, Utah, 70 miles from the ranger station, has retail stores, motels, restaurants,
churches, hospital, and museums.
