Directions to the Saratoga Springs Boat Harbor:
Coming from I-15, take the Lehi Main Street (U-73) exit and head west. At the Intersection of Redwood Rd (U-68), turn left (south) and drive about 7 miles (it might be more than that -- I'm not exactly sure). You'll pass a golf course on the left. Keep going south and turn left on Cascade Drive. For now you can ignore the entrance shack as there are no day use or launch fees. Coming from the west side of the Salt Lake Valley, it would just be faster to take Redwood all the way down and skip I-15 altogether. DO NOT park on Redwood Road. The City has requested that we not park there, and there really isn't room on the shoulder to do so anyway. There is ample parking at the boat harbor, so we'll park there and then just walk back up the hill to Redwood Road. You may also be able to park on Cascade Drive between Redwood and the marina, although I don't remember for sure if there is parking along this road or not.
