Scofield is Utah's highest-elevation state park. That makes for a cool summer retreat and a winter sports haven high on an alpine road known as The Energy Loop: Huntington/Eccles Canyons Scenic Byway. The popularity of Scofield Reservoir brings many visitors to the park each year. Summer activities include fishing, camping, hiking, and swimming at this 2,800-acre reservoir at an elevation of 7,616 feet.
During the winter months, Scofield is one of the best places to ice fish for rainbow and cutthroat trout. The byway makes for an excellent scenic route on the way to or from Moab, with options to explore Skyline Drive on the Wasatch Plateau (with high-clearance or off-road vehicles) or the nearby San Rafael Swell.
