PAGE, AZ (CBS5) -

The Antelope Point launch ramp will be closed Sept. 23 to all launches with boat trailers because of low water levels at Lake Powell.

Though a barricade will be put at the lower portion of the ramp, hand launching of kayaks, canoes and other small vessels will be allowed, according to Denise Schultz of the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.

Boaters should still be aware that while the ramp is open, launching at these water levels is not safe for all sizes of boats and launching is at your own risk, according to Schultz.

Parking is prohibited on the ramp and self-certification for mussels is still required for all vessels.
