Ticaboo, Utah is located on UT-276 about 90 miles east of Panguitch, the Garfield County seat, and only 12 miles from Lake Powell. This small, unincorporated town was originally established as a uranium mining and milling community, but now thrives as the northern gateway to beautiful Lake Powell and the spectacular Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. At an elevation of 4,265 feet, Ticaboo is only minutes from world-class fishing, boating, hiking and other recreational opportunities amongst the red rock canyons and sparkling waters of Lake Powell.
Ticaboo offers convenient access to Bullfrog Marina, where travelers can ferry across the lake to Hall's Crossing and continue along UT-276. Full- and half-day tours to Rainbow Bridge National Monument, one of the most popular sights on Lake Powell, are available daily from Bullfrog Marina. Amenities such as gas, pumping and fish cleaning stations, a six-lane boat ramp, and a convenience store can also be found here. Access across Lake Powell is also available via the marina at Hite, north of Ticaboo on SR-95.
Parks and Ticaboo
In addition to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Lake Powell, Ticaboo offers access to some of the most scenic state and national parks and monuments in the U.S. Ticaboo is located near the southern tip of Capitol Reef National Park, which can be reached via the scenic Burr Trail Road/1668 or by heading north on UT-276 to Scenic Highway 24 to the northern section of the park. From Ticaboo, the Burr Trail Road also leads to Scenic Highway 12 for access to Bryce Canyon National Park. Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument is located to the west of Ticaboo, and the infamous Four Corners, where the borders of Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico meet, are located to the southeast. Traces of Ticaboo's earliest inhabitants, the Anasazi Indians, can be seen at the Anasazi Indian Village State Park near Boulder or by sea kayaking through the narrow canyons of Lake Powell. Kayaks are available for rent at the Ticaboo Lodge.
