TICABOO, Utah (November 6, 2018) – The National Park Service announced this week that Ticaboo Lodge was awarded the contract as the authorized concessionaire for operating the facilities at Hite, Utah. ” This is the perfect fit for the growth of our North Lake Powell adventure services,” said Capt. Ray Golden, Ticaboo general manager. “The contract with Hite opens the door for our adventure center to offer additional opportunities for visitors to explore hard-to-reach areas in the Orange Cliff and Muley Point sections of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, National Park Service.”
Golden further described the company’s plan with the addition of Hite, ” Our plan is to convert the store into a fully stocked outfitter shop, complete with a grill for serving food, and a guide service for passer-by traffic and the tremendous influx of vacationers in the San Juan County region.”
“We are extremely excited to be chosen as the concessionaire for Hite and strongly believe that all adventure-minded people will find an unmatched recreational experience on this newly renovated property,” said Ticaboo partner, Bob Mitchell. “This area represents one of the few remaining unexplored corners of the world and we take our stewardship to maintain balance between preservation and utilization very seriously,” continued Mitchell.
Lake Powell Adventures will be able to offer ATV rentals and ATV guided tours in the Orange Cliffs region giving the public access to some of the hardest to reach areas of southern Utah, which also happens to be some of the most scenic areas, as well.
In addition to ATV markets, other land-based operational plans will include canyoneering trips, guided hiking, Jeep tours, and water-based operations to include jet ski and kayak rentals and tours.
The contract begins on November 1, 2018. Golden’s plan is to be fully operational by January, 2019. This is a perfect opportunity for branding North Lake Powell and tying in San Juan County tourism with the tourism in Garfield County and Kane County,” Golden concluded.
