Highlight: Gunlock Reservoir
Gunlock Reservoir is 266 acres of tranquil waters located in the desert region of Utah, at an elevation of 3,584 feet. This route travels along the opposite shoreline from where the normal crowds gather. You will enjoy a challenging but scenic four-wheeling experience while having access to the sandy shores of a beautiful lake. Warm waters during summer and a mild winter climate make the reservoir a popular year-round destination. Largemouth bass, bluegill sunfish, and black crappie are the main fishing draws at Gunlock Reservoir. Green sunfish and black bullhead are also common, but they're less popular. Gunlock is known to produce trophy largemouth bass up to six pounds in weight. Bluegill and crappie are great targets for the kids. You can bring a kayak to paddle around the unique rock formations that jut out of the water. If you visit in early spring, the waterfalls on the south end of the lake are usually flowing, and you can park right next to them and relax for a bit.
