[Launch Ramps]


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.
