The Utah Division of Parks and Recreation has closed the boat ramp at Scofield State Park while a new 30-foot ramp is being constructed.

Construction should be completed Nov. 1. The new ramp will accommodate two lanes when completed.With the temporary closure, there are no launching facilities on the reservoir, but owners of small boats that do not require a ramp should have no trouble launching their craft from the park. Campground and rest room facilities will remain open while the new ramp is being built.
