“scenic mountain retreat”
Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area The Flaming Gorge NRA is located in the northeast corner of Utah and the southwest corner of Wyoming. It is South of I-80, between Green River and Rock Springs, Wyoming and extends into the Uintah Mountains towards Vernal, Utah. The area is a mixture of climate, topography, and recreation opportunities well suited to a variety of summer and winter interests. With 43 campgrounds hosting over 700 individual campsites and 27 group sites, all spread over nearly 91 water-miles (with a whopping 360 miles of shore line) plus countless mountain retreats. There is plenty of room for everyone. There is also the opportunity to set up “primitive” camping for those wishing a more secluded adventure, or river camps for those extending their river runs for more than a day. Close at hand are the quaint communities of Manila and Dutch John, Utah to offer accommodations and other services for more traditional vacationers.Consult the monthly calendar of events posted on the web or in the district office of the National Forest in Manila, Utah and at the Red Canyon Visitor’s Center for scheduled activities, classes of interest, and special events.
Absolutely stunning views, and so much to do and visit! Make a fun camping weekend out of it! You'll wish you did!
Beautiful!! Really neat area! Stop at the Red Canyon Visitor Center for a gorgeous view of the river running through the red rock gorge! Looked like a great place to camp.
We drove south from Manila on Highway 44. Sheep Creek Geological Loop came up on the right about 6-8 miles out of Manila and was a fantastic detour. But, that loop completely cuts out the fantastic views of Flaming Gorge, so we doubled back and drove down into the gorge then turned around and saw it all again and continued heading south/east on Highway 44 towards the junction with Highway 191.
Not open 24/7, not free.
