A brief introduction to Baker Dam Recreation Area

Built in 1953 at the foot of the towering Pine Valley Mountains, the reservoir area offers slightly cooler temperatures and a quick getaway from St. George and other lower elevation communities.

The reservoir is managed by the Baker Dam Reservoir Association. Stocked with trout on a regular basis by the Utah State Division of Wildlife Resources, the reservoir is a popular fishing site. While spring and fall provide the best fishing opportunities, Baker Dam Recreation Area is open year-round.

Baker Dam is also a good base for hunters looking for deer, quail, and rabbit, and off highway vehicle users wanting to explore higher elevations.

Please be informed of all Federal, State, and local laws and regulations for hunting and OHVs. Much of the land surrounding the reservoir is private except for the southern end, which is public land. Please view the land ownership map and respect private property.

A 18 site campground is available on site.
