Boats must be inspected for Quagga mussels, before being allowed on the lakes. This year (2018) there will be an inspection and verification station right at Twin Lakes.  

There will be a charge of $15.00 for motorized watercraft over 10' and $5.00 for non motorized watercraft under 10'.

It will be open May 1st - Aug.20th   Boat launching hours are for the month of May and August: 7 am to 7pm.

Because of water getting low in lakes, we will close the lakes to ALL watercraft on AUG. 20th

NO watercraft with ballast compartments or bladders are allowed on the lakes, (even if they are sealed off).

If you have any questions on watercraft at Twin Lakes contact:  Sean Coombs 435-994-9739, (Independant Contractor of the watercraft inspection and verification station at Twin Lakes).

It has excellent bass and trout fishing as well as boating and water skiing. Many come just to camp and enjoy the serenity of the area.
