Fish Lake, Utah

Fish Lake

Fish Lake, Utah

Fish Lake is probably the least known national forest are in Utah. It’s wilderness area — unlike many of the more popular national parks— is beautifully untamed. This is because the area is mostly utilized by sportsman and anglers. Fish Lake has very deep waters for a natural lake (nearly 200 feet deep). Every year huge lake trout are reeled in by anglers.

There are many backpacking trails as well as plenty of designated camping areas for RVs and tents. They also offer small cabin rentals. Kiki and Louie (dogs) enjoyed the wide open expanses of land and trails. (below) A flock of several hundred cranes descended on Fish Lake during our visit.
