A new concessionaire, a high water level for boaters and hot-water showers will be available to visitors at East Canyon State Park this year.
East Canyon Marina, the new concession operation at the park, offers rowboat and paddle boat rentals, gasoline, groceries, fishing supplies and entertainment.In addition to concession improvements, Becky Chase, park ranger, said, "The reservoir at the park is 80 percent full and the water is still rising." This will make excellent conditions for boaters, she said.
Also, for the first time, campers at East Canyon will be able to enjoy a hot shower. A new restroom has been built in the main campground, complete with hot water showers.
East Canyon State Park is 12 miles southeast of Morgan, on U-66. The park can also be reached from Salt Lake City by traveling east on I-80 and turning north on U-65.
