High Elevation Workamping Job Near Vernal, UT

East Park Campground

Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest / Flaming Gorge Ranger District

East Park Reservoir is a local favorite for fishing and camping about 32 miles north of Vernal, UT.  At 9000' elevation, the 132 acre lake is surrounded by lodgepole pine and wet meadows.  Fishing for rainbow trout from shore, canoe or a float tube are productive.  A trailhead at the north end of the lake leads east to US 191, and the trailhead at the south end leads west to Oaks Park Lake.

Anglers and visitors at the reservoir have a good chance of seeing elk, deer, small mammals and birds.  The area is also a fantastic waterfowl hunting area.
