Flaming Gorge National Recreation

For a stunning day trip just two hours outside of Rangely, you’ll want to visit the Flaming Gorge Reservoir on the Utah/Wyoming border

This man-made reservoir sits high above Flaming Gorge Dam and is open to hiking, boating, fishing, windsurfing, camping, backpacking, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. Part of the larger Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area, this spot is a beautiful four-season destination for visitors of all ages and interests.

For avid fishing enthusiasts, you won’t want to miss the incredible fly fishing in the tailwaters below the dam. Flaming Gorge is one of the country’s premier destinations for trophy trout, smallmouth bass, and more. Situated below brilliant red cliffs, you’ll find yourself hooking some of the most impressive whoppers you’ve ever seen.
