General Information

Description - From high peaks to deep canyons, from lush mountain forests to arid deserts, Utah offers an awe-inspiring landscape in which to recreate. We've divided the state into seven travel regions to facilitate your search for the ideal outdoor recreation site. These regions follow closely the delineation of travel regions by the Utah State Tourism: Northern Utah, Great Salt Lake Country, Mountainland, Dinosaurland, Central Utah, Southwest Utah and Canyonland.

Attractions - Utah offers a huge range of attractions for the outdoor enthusiast. It is home to popular National Parks such as Zion, Canyonlands, Arches and Bryce Canyon. Much of the mountainous areas in Utah, lie within the six National Forests: the Wasatch-Cache, Ashley, Uintah, Fishlake, Manti-LaSal, and Dixie. Utah's State Parks are scattered throughout the state and offer additional recreation opportunities.

Recreation - Recreation opportunities in Utah are available for every skill level and interest. Rock climbing, backpacking, hiking, boating and camping are exciting endeavors for visitors during the summer, spring and fall months. In the winter, skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling are favorites of locals and tourists alike.

Climate - The climate of Utah varies with the terrain. Visitors to the mountains will experience cool summer nights and passing storms that can alter a sunny day very quickly. Be prepared with layers when recreating in the mountains.

The deserts and canyons of Utah can be dangerous places. Summer temperatures often reach above 100 degrees F, so be sure to carry water on all adventures. Flash floods in the canyons are also a threat. It is difficult to predict incoming weather when deep within a canyon so check reports before venturing into any narrow canyon areas.

Location - Utah is located in the western United States, with Salt Lake City as its capital. Interstates 80, 15 and 70 all lead through the state.
