Blowing 15-20 but open and easy to launch!
no ice cream. That was the best part.
Haha like wise Tony we will have to swap numbers we will start heading up pretty frequently now and we do usually camp at least in padre bay. That was my in laws house boat you saw we let them pick how far up lake we go as that thing isnt exactly a Prius. Haha you're a girl dad! I knew there was something I liked about you. Again it was great to meet you and your wife and we will have to hang out longer sometime.
Mosquito creek has a good eye! When he rolled up behind us after we came i to camp my wife thought we had cut him off and he was chasing us down. Good thing we didn't cut him off the guy is not some one you want to meet on bad circumstances. He is built like an OX!
as long as you can launch the lake has lots of beaches, but they all sort of push you closer to the main channel since you can’t go deep into the canyons.
I can’t imagine the cluster fuck going around through the washing machine straights on a Saturday etc... pays to be the early bird for sure. The dock cables at antelope marina are a hazard and I saw one boat get hung up on one, so just press the lane close to the houseboats.
We didn’t see many boats after last chance but it early in the season.
Friday night in last chance and Saturday night in Oak Canyon.

The Wahweap Ramp is compacted dirt when the cement runs out. It will require a 4x4 semi like Wahweap has for it rental units. That said, it if keeps going down, ramp usage will be restricted IMO.
that answers my question, water level and ramp length by august? im guessing it will take a 4x4 with offroad tires to launch?The Wahweap Ramp is compacted dirt when the cement runs out.

I got an email that they would be adding mats to extend it. We are going in September and launch with our motorhome, should be interesting. My wife backed it down last year, should be interesting this year.I think things are going to start turning here soon. The snow pack should start to run off. I haven't read anything but it seems these later snow storms have held the run off a bit later than years past. Just a hunch. But regardless the park has said they will do everything in their power to keep people launching boats at wahweep. What that entails I don't know. Keep your spirits high and fingers crossed.
Reach out to me with a PM ... if I am in town I might be able to help out.
How is the RV Park? We booked a few years back for kids spring break but the weather was shit and we ended up canceling.This year we are going to bring our truck as well, learned it’s a long walk from the rv park to the marina, especially the way back up hill the whole way.
This was my wifes exact same comment when I mentioned going the first time. LOLWould love to make a Powell trip in the near future. I have been a few times but my wife never has, and I know her and the kids would have a blast.
My dilemma with my wife is- She says that if we are spending that much to go boating and renting a house boat for a week she would rather use that money and have a nice vacation where we are being waited on, drinking pool side and not cooking dinners every night. I tend to agree but I tell her its one of those trips you have to go on to appreciate.
