Hey Guys,

Anyone have advice on where to hang around till boat ramp opens in the morning? wahweap or antelope? walmart parking lot?

We'll likely drive up and arrive in Page around midnight towing boat from down south. I thought Antelope gate gets closed...or maybe that's right at the actual boat ramp. The parking lot would be fine...

we need to buy a new lake sticker.

any ideas would be appreciated!

thanks! I recall the lock the gate to the ramp at Antelope. Wahweap says it has a soft closure meaning no launching but retrieval is ok after hours. 7am-8pm ?

we wouldn't mind arriving at the ramp and napping if possible :) too much excitement though...but the kids and first mate can catch some sleep maybe.
They don’t allow you to sleep at the ramp or parking lot but you can launch your boat anytime the closure was pre mussels
Did they put lighting on the lake too? :) I think some highway lighting along the narrows would be fun. just kiddin.
Thinking of going out after dark next trip and looking forward to it but my boat only goes 7mph max gps and only nav lights don’t ruin your night vision with spotlight ⛵
daylight only for me for lack of the waterway knowledge, whales, shallows, etc....

Looks like destination will be Rock Creek with some friends/boats.

woop woop! I can see the SM/LM just jumping in my boat now...probably gonna have to fend them off to avoid over loading the boat :)
I only like going out in daylight but sometimes it doesn’t work out that way😓I only motor at wake less speed and know the lake pretty good at all water levels I have hit shore before at full speed in a ski boat at night it was pretty scary 😲 hit a reef/shoreline pre gps and within a minute a huge coast guard boat was looking down on us asking if we where ok I was surprised the out drive was still there we made it home and have never seen that coast guard boat again on the lake.
