Panguitch Lake, Dixie National Forest

Meaning "big fish" in the Paiute language, the original natural Panguitch Lake was used as a fishery by native people. Since then, a dam was built to nearly double the surface area to 1,248 acres and bring the shoreline to around 10 miles. Located in the Dixie National Forest, it’s a prime location to set up a base camp for visiting the three nearby National Parks as well as Cedar Breaks National Monument. Since it’s in Utah’s high country at 8,400 feet it stays relatively cooler than the surrounding lower elevations. The closest accommodations are three campgrounds and RV parks and activities include fishing, hiking, and ATV riding.
