Panguitch Lake

Located in the mountains about 16 miles SW of the town of Panguitch, Panguitch Lake is a very popular recreational area offering great camping, fishing and boating.

Several very nice lodges can be found around the lake's shoreline and this is also a great area for people who enjoy owning recreational property - a cabin in the mountains, on the edge of a picturesque lake - your very own piece of paradise.

A lush forest surrounds the lake, coming right down to the shoreline in some areas. At an elevation of 8217 feet above sea level, summer temperatures are always cool here even though the lake is located in southern Utah near Zion and Bryce Canyon national parks.

Panguitch Lake sits just under Brain Head Peak, making it an easy drive from Brian Head Ski Resort. It is also just minutes from Cedar Breaks National Monument.

Hiking and biking trails extend into the forest in all directions. Brian Head is a famous mountain biking destination and some of the most popular trails there run down the mountain to Panguitch Lake.

In winter, snow piles deep around the lake, which is one the edge of the Cedar Mountain snowmobile complex. Some of Utah's best snowmobile trails can be found in this area.

Wildlife it abundant here. People driving the backroads or hiking/biking the trails often see mule deer, elk, coyotes, foxes, eagles, hawks, and a large variety of other birds and mammals.

But fishing is perhaps the biggest draw at the lake. Trout thrive in its cool, clear waters. During summer, anglers fish from shore, from boats or from float tubes. Ice fishing is very popular here during winter - this is one of Utah's best ice fishing lakes.

Because of cold temperatures and deep snow, campgrounds and lodges close during the winter.
