We love flaming Gorge and all the pretty views and fishing. The weather can change fast so be prepared. The dam is about 50 miles from Lucern marina and I would highly recommend making the drive in the boat. The cliffs are amazing.

Flaming Gorge is not as well known as other National Parks in Utah and surrounding states. But it is no less impressive in terms of scenery. Like other parks, it is remote and services are a bit limited. But the people are extremely friendly, restaurants...More

Didn't seem the same as the last time, some 10 years ago. Of course this time, it was mostly cloudy. And no animals at all. Actually, very few humans too. The view is great but it is basically one view.

We certainly understand how it got it's name. The cliffs are brilliant red and the view of the lake is breathtaking. We would love to return here and take advantage of the hiking, fishing and rafting.

It is a lot of fun to explore this lake in a boat. It was not too crowded. We really didn't see very many other people on the lake. There were beautiful views everywhere you looked. The water is nice and refreshing but I love...More
