Big, beautiful Flaming Gorge Lake, enclosed by brightly colored canyon walls and set amidst hundreds of thousands of acres of forested hills, makes up the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area. It is a wonderful setting in which to boat, fish, hike, bike or just stare. The Green River below the dam provides some of the best trout fishing in the state as well as mild whitewater rafting. Most visitors camp at the dozens of forest service campgrounds in the park, but there are also a few lodges and other places to stay in the area.
Flaming Gorge straddles the Utah/Wyoming border near the northeast corner of Utah. Though it reaches some 60 miles north to Green River, Wyoming, most of the activity and the most dramatic scenery are at its southern end in Utah. The main season runs from May to September, though a few facilities remain open all year for cross-country skiers, snowmobilers and ice fishers.
