Hansen Creek

Back to HOME page  -  Back to Bull Frog

Hansen Creek is the first canyon on the west side of the lake up lake from Bull Frog.  It is usually very busy so we have not ventured up Hansen Creek because of that fact.  But for Perry, while living in Hanksville, Utah, as a child, Hansen Creek was the only way into the Colorado River.  At that time,  the lake was being filled while the Bull Frog Marina was being built.  Perry worked along side his father mixing concrete for the boat ramp and building the marina building in the summer of 1964.  We could go down Hansen Creek to the edge of the rising lake water to fish and swim.  The lake level did not reach the marina boat ramp at Bull Frog until 1965.
