Fish Lake is the largest mountain lake in Utah, a gem tucked away among the aspen trees. Some of the popular activities at the lake include bird-watching, wildlife-viewing, and trophy fishing. Some of the animal species near the lake include deer, cougar, moose, and mountain goats, with fish species that thrive here, including splake, large Mackinaw, as well as trout. These excellent fishing opportunities are a great way to explore the forest.

In addition to recreational activities at the lake, Fishlake National Forest is home to many outdoor activities. One of the most popular activities in the forest is off-road driving. This allows visitors to combine the perks of a day trip with wonderful views of the area.

A trip to the forest would be incomplete without exploring the Paiute ATV Trail that covers more than 200 miles of the forest’s splendid terrain. Alternatively, take either of the two byways or choose from the numerous backways that run across the forest.

Visitors may also enjoy the adrenaline rush of horseback riding, mountain biking, or hiking on the well-marked trails. The forest also comes alive during winter with snowmobiling, skiing, and ice fishing, making it a perfect all-year-round destination.

Additional amenities at Fishlake National Forest include summer homes, picnic areas, a boating site, as well as camping grounds. Accommodation is available across the 29 developed campgrounds on site, with options ranging from dispersed camping, group camping, and cabin rentals. Visitors with RVs will enjoy camping at the Beaver Ranger District, whose scenic highlights make it an idyllic site.

Fishlake National Forest is an oasis right above the junction of I-15 and I-70 in the Central part of the State. Nearby attractions include the Cove Fort Historic Site, Capitol Reef National Park, and the Territorial Statehouse State Park Museum.
