small-sr Icon

Desert Lake Loop is a well-maintained gravel road and part of an overland route accessing the San Rafael Swell from Wellington, Utah. The route is named after the protected Desert Lake Waterfowl Management Area that the route circles. The area is an extensive collection of retention ponds that migrating birds often frequent in this desert landscape. In dry conditions, the entire road is easily accessible in all vehicles equipped with durable tires. No camping was found along this route. Abundant camping can be located further south in the Swell.
