Lakes in Utah


What are most famous lakes in Utah? Lake Powell and the Great Salt Lake, definitely. With its extensive shoreline, blue water and vivid scenery, Lake Powell is extremely popular with boaters, anglers and other water sport lovers. The Great Salt Lake is even more popular thanks to its unique teal-blue waters, breathtaking setting and singular designation as the western hemisphere's largest saltwater lake.

But Powell and Salt Lake aren't the only waters of note in Utah. The central part of the state alone contains over 15 reservoirs well-stocked with fish, as well as numerous fishing holes, most notably Utah Lake, which offers premium channel catfish, walleye and white bass fishing. Other noteworthy lakes? Palisade Lake, which is located near excellent campsites, and Trial Lake, which sits amid the breathtaking alpine scenery of the Uinta Mountains in the northeastern part of the state.
