Scofield Reservoir State Park

Scofield Reservoir is one of Utah's most important fisheries and usually offers good action year-round for cutthroat and rainbow trout. The park offers two very nice campgrounds. It is a great place to spend a relaxing weekend, or to use as a base camp to explore the nearby mountains.

Scofield is located near Skyline Drive, which is a high mountain area offering countless small lakes and streams, along with great ATV and snowmobile trails. Many people enjoy big game hunting in this area.
