  • Drove in from the Utah side. The mining has totally ruined the Utah part of this recreation area. It is a dusty drive with views of large mining equipment. Vernal, Utah is a little town with...  more »

  • Amazing place for boating and camping. The canyons near the dam is awe-inspiring with its giant walls, red rocks and forest. It is much prettier than the northern part of the Green River near Wyoming.
  • One of the most amazing places I have ever been. Remote camping galore. Bring your own water and a respect for the land. The people in the visitor center sent us to the most beautiful spot. Genuinely and without any kind of weirdness. True authenticity. But be prepared
  • This is an amazing lake with amazing views. I would reccomend trolling the bend and going up towards the dam for the best views. There is also plenty of little canyons and hideaways to tie up and enjoy the day with friends. The water can be quite chilly early in the year but on a sunny day feels good. Be aware that thunderstorms in the afternoon can be regular.
  • Great place! If you like to road bike or Mt bike take the sheep Creek geological loop; few cars, great road ,good climb for aerobic exercise. Lots of forest roads to bike..
  • So much fun at Flaming Gorge! The water is warm and clear so you can swim for hours! Great place to camp and play on the lake.
