Panguitch is a Paiute Indian word, meaning "big fish." Panguitch Lake offers beautiful scenery and great fishing, surrounded by majestic mountains and the colorful Aquarius Plateau.
A great example of classic "small town USA," Panguitch's curious name comes from a Paiute word meaning "big fish," referring to the large scaly residents of Panguitch Lake. The town is just 25 miles northwest of Bryce Canyon National Park. It also offers easy access to the Patchwork Parkway National Scenic Byway, Cedar Breaks National Monument, and Dixie National Forest lands.
