Personal Watercraft Permits

2024 Season Cost: $12 

Residents can obtain a boating permit for personal, non-motorized watercraft use after completing a Daybreak Community Association lake use agreement form. The permits may be purchased and forms filled out online at RecDesk starting April 1. You can pick up your personal watercraft permit at the DCC. Call the DCC at (801) 253-6418 with questions. Residents can launch boats from West Beach, East Lake or North Shore.

Why do I need a permit?
This permit helps pay for the cost of the sticker, which ensures that the amenity is used by Daybreak residents and that the proper types of vessels are used on the lake.

What kinds of watercraft are allowed on the lake?
Personal non-motorized boats, which include kayaks, canoes, row boats and paddle boards that do not exceed 17 feet in length. *Inflatable paddleboards and kayaks must be inspected by the Harbor Master before a permit can be placed on the vessel. Only authorized motorized boats operated by the community association are permitted.
