Beaver, Utah Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Beaver is a pleasant small town along I-15 at the base of the Tushar Mountains. It has a number of lodging options and casual dining available. It is an easy traveler's stop for I-15 motorists and a convenient base from which to explore the Tushar Mountains.

Beaver itself is probably most famous as the birthplace of two historic greats: Philo T. Farnsworth, one of the inventors of the television, and Butch Cassidy, the legendary Western outlaw. Beaver is also a landmark town in another way, since it was the first Utah town to be electrified. That original hydroelectric plant, built on the Beaver River, still runs today.

The recreation in the immediate Beaver area may be less landmark, but not to be overlooked. The Paiute Trail runs practically through town and at 230 miles long, is a more than attractive week-long trip for the enthusiastic offroader. Minersville Reservoir is a nearby State Recreation Area beloved by boaters and fishermen alike. Further, beyond the beautiful and very explorable Tushar Mountains and their rocks and lakes, Beaver is only 77 miles from Zion National Park.

Beaver is also just 52 miles north of Cedar City and 210 miles south of Salt Lake City.
