Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

A green and tree shaded community in an otherwise dry plain, Vernal is an attractive small town with some 8,000 residents. It serves as a good base for visiting nearby Dinosaur National Monument, Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area and the Uinta Mountains. It offers a decent selection of motels and has numerous small restaurants, cafes and fast food joints.

Vernal also has a small, well-done prehistory museum, a nice tie-in to the Dinosaur National Monument, a couple of movie theaters and water slides for the kids. Three state parks are within a quick drive of Vernal, namely Steinaker, Red Fleet and Starvation State Parks, all centered around reservoirs. Red Fleet is also known for its well-preserved dinosaur tracks.

Vernal is located along Highways 191/40 in the northeast corner of Utah. It is southeast of the Uinta Mountains, 20 miles west of Dinosaur National Monument and 35 miles south of Flaming Gorge.
