Share this article

Fuel services in Hite, Utah will be unavailable until further notice, the National Park Service (NPS) announced in a press release. Travelers on Utah State Highway 95 in rural Utah are advised that fuel service will be unavailable beginning April 1.

Those coursing through the 126-mile stretch of Utah State Highway 95 between Hanksville and Blanding, Utah will need enough fuel for their travel and recreational needs. The nearest towns to Hite with fuel available are Hanksville, Utah (51 miles to the west) and Blanding, Utah (79 miles to the east).

“Be aware how much fuel is in your tank and how far away you are from the nearest gas station,” NPS stated in its release.   

Most visitor services at Hite are also suspended until a new concessioner is selected. Beginning April 1, the Hite retail store, pay-at-the-pump fuel service, the visitor comfort station, and designated camping areas will be closed. Public restrooms are available at the Hite Ranger Station, located in the building’s breezeway. A fresh drinking water spigot and RV sewer dump station service will remain open and available for public use.   

Hite is a remote Ranger District in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, located at the top of Lake Powell, adjacent to the confluence of the Colorado and Dirty Devil Rivers.

The area is abundant in recreational opportunities including Jeep trails, backpacking, canyoneering, mountain biking, cycling, canoeing, kayaking, boating, and fishing.
