Bullfrog Marina

Bullfrog Marina is located about 90 lake miles from Glen Canyon Dam. Located here is the Defiance House Lodge, complete with the Moki dining room, and providing visitors a quiet place to get away. The staff at the lodge can help you arrange boat tours or boat rentals. Bullfrog Marina is served by the Charles Hall, a 127 foot ferry boat that travels back and forth between Bullfrog and Halls Crossing Marina (fees apply). The ferry is large enough to accommodate tour busses and foot passengers and everything in between.

Hite

There is currently no longer a marina at Hite. Due to recent lake levels, it has been removed, all water-based marina facilities have been relocated to marina areas downstream. Hite is a very small developed area with limited services, it is nonetheless very important, providing facilities to river runners coming in from the Colorado and Green River trips, as well as those boating in the upper reaches of Lake Powell. A convenience store, campground, and ranger station are available. 

With the current lake levels, there is no public launch ramp at Hite Marina - lake levels must exceed 3608 feet in elevation for a launch ramp to be usable. When lake rises use the primitive ramp furthest south. Look for a courtesy dock normally placed by the best primitive launch area. Be very careful and look before launching! A dirt takeout area for river rafters has been developed on the west side of the river. This is a primitive road and requires 4-wheel drive to access the river. This is not a boat launching area. Mussel certification required from an NPS Ranger when on duty. If no Ranger then self certify before launching at Hite or primitive access areas such as Blue Notch and Farleys Canyon.

For information on available land-based facilities, call (435) 684-2278 for operating hours. Facilities include family housekeeping units, gas station, store, and dry storage. Hite Marina has a NPS ranger station and primitive camping area – however, this camping area is not accessible to the water.
