SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Utah State Parks announced the launch of a new website designed to be more intuitive, informative, and simple to use. While incorporating the latest Internet technology and design, the website’s main goal is to help park visitors find the most up-to-date information they need to get outdoors and enjoy Utah’s state parks.
“Utah’s state parks offer a wide variety of experiences and accommodations for our visitors,” commented Utah State Parks Director Fred Hayes. “We want our new website to highlight what we have and to motivate people to plan vacations. The new website will be the one stop needed to plan and book any trip to a state park.”
The new state parks website features large images that capture the beauty of Utah’s public lands. Vital information about the parks has been brought to the front page of each park’s section of the website. In addition useful information such as maps and directions are featured prominently. Current weather conditions are automatically displayed for each park.
Visitors will also find this useful information on each page:
- Park amenities
- Park fees
- Hours of operation
- Contact information
- Social media links
Citizens can also access online services on the new website, including: annual park pass sales, youth off-highway vehicle and personal watercraft education courses, reservations, event registration interactive, and off-highway vehicle maps.
