Special Places

The Fishlake National Forest offers a wide variety of outdoor experiences including exploring remote backcountry on horseback, afoot, or by off-highway vehicle; camping in developed campgrounds or undeveloped areas; or learning more about the natural world around us.


Fish Lake Recreation Area  

The Fish Lake Basin offers visitors a chance to escape the heat of the summer and enjoy the forested mountains and some of the finest outdoor experiences in central Utah.

Visitors can enjoy one of six developed campgrounds, or stay in one of the cabins available for rent at one of the three resorts located along Fish Lake.

Fish Lake is known for its large Lake Trout, or Mackinaw. These fish grow to over 50 pounds and can put a stretch on an angler’s line. In addition to the Macs, Fish Lake is home to rainbow trout, tiger muskie, Splake and yellow perch.

Come and enjoy all the area has to offer.
