It is still listed as a private concessionaire on the DWR web page.

There is an article in todays Salt Lake Tribune titled "Utah could get more--and bigger State Parks".

It mentions that State Parks dep. is looking into acquiring recreational property that "may" become available at Echo, and other places.

Doesn't sound real solid, so probably have to wait and see other information.

I for one would like a State Park Marina and facilities at Echo. I get a senior State Parks pass every year and would like better access to Echo for boat fishing and for ice fishing.

Several years ago I asked the BLM, who leases Echo to the current managers, whether it would be possible to take it over as a State Park and improve it. They said at that time that the family running it had a 50-year lease that expired in 2015 I believe. I have not heard whether it was renewed as a long-term lease or a shorter agreement. I for one would welcome it.
