Lake Canyon Recreation Area can be found along Utah's scenic Energy Loop, on top of the Wasatch Plateau. It is located just off Highway 31, approximately 18 miles east of the town of Fairview. The recreation area is situated between Huntington and Cleveland reservoirs, at an approximate elevation of 9,000 feet. The area is a paradise for anglers and off-road vehicle enthusiasts.
This expansive, yet primitive recreation area contains several campsites that can accommodate groups ranging in size from 20 to 150 people. Approximately 50 additional single-family campsites are dispersed throughout the area.
Vault toilets are provided, but there is no water, electricity or garbage service available within the recreation area. Visitors should bring their own water and pack out all garbage.
Stage 2 Fire Restrictions (Only Gas Stoves/ Gas Grills/ Gas Firepit Allowed)
There are currently fire restrictions at our facility that prohibit all fires, including those in fire rings, as well as charcoal usage and smoking (except in an enclosed vehicle).
Gas stoves, grills and firepits with a shut-off valve are permitted only if they’re used at least three feet away from flammable materials such as grass or pine needles.
These fire restrictions are in place due to high fire danger in the area. You can find more information about these restrictions on our agency website.
We expect fire restrictions to be in effect during your visit and wanted to provide you with the information needed to plan accordingly for your trip.
Please contact our facility if you have any questions or would like additional information.
The area is situated in a broad mountain valley, surrounded by the scenic peaks of the Wasatch Plateau. Stands of aspen and pine trees provide limited shade, and grasses, sagebrush and summer wildflowers fill the meadows.
Huntington Reservoir has great tiger and cutthroat trout fishing, while Cleveland Reservoir offers great fishing for rainbow trout. Both reservoirs are perfect for canoeing and kayaking, however boat ramps are not available.

Electric Lake is nearby, offering boating, water skiing and fishing for tiger and cutthroat trout. A boat ramp is on-site there.
