Elevations in the Ashley National Forest range from 6,000 feet to over 13,500 feet. The crown jewel of this forest is Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area. Famous for trophy trout fishing, the 91-mile reservoir created by Flaming Gorge Dam provides vivid blue contrast to the surrounding red rock cliffs dotted with green pines and aspen. Comfortable accommodations, 23 campgrounds and guide services make this area a vacation paradise. The Ashley National Forest also provides outstanding backpacking to alpine lakes in the pristine High Uinta Wilderness, or camping in improved scenic sites throughout the forest, including Moon Lake and Sheep Creek Canyon.
