ECHO STATE PARK – The Utah Division of Parks and Recreation is excited to announce that Echo State Park will be opening to the public on Saturday, May 12, 2018.
While walk-in access has been available over the transition period to Utah State Parks, this will be the first time Echo will be open to vehicles and those wanting to camp or launch boats out of the main marina area since management has changed hands.
Since the transition, it has been the goal to open to the public before peak season. Now, thanks to some hard work and planning, Park Manager Eric Bradshaw said, it’s actually going to happen.
“We are really excited to get things going here at the park,” Bradshaw said. “This is something we’ve been looking forward to.”
The gate will open at the park at 7 a.m. Saturday. The boat ramp and dock will also be available for those wanting to launch their vessels for some fun on the water.
Day use fees for the park are set at $12 per vehicle. Senior day use is $6 and walk-in/bike access is $4.
Echo State Park will also be accepting the Utah State Parks Annual Day Use Pass, and will also be selling them to visitors who would like to purchase one.
At the time of this posting, the restroom facilities remain closed and under maintenance. However, there will be portable restroom facilities available to park visitors until the traditional ones open.
Camping and watercraft rentals at Echo will be managed by the Echo Marina concessionaire at this time. Visit their websiteto book a campsite or rent a vessel.
