Area Status: Open
Heber-Kamas Ranger District

This Ranger District is fast becoming a four-season destination. The mountainous terrain and abundant lakes invite visitors to hike, camp, fish, ride mountain bikes, backpack and ride off-highway vehicles in the summer. During the winter, the quality snow draws legions of backcountry skiers, dog sledders and snowmobilers.
