Forsyth reservoir is in a remote valley, close to the top of the mountains. It’s a bleak location, but it’s a suitable place to be away from the crowds around Capitol Reef.

“Great spot with great views! Review”

Reviewed Apr 10, 2017

Overall Rating

Nice small lake. Dispersed camping only, one pit toilet, no hookups. Two large camp areas suitable for larger rigs. Water access for kayaking and fishing and a boat ramp. One bar of Verizon, sort of, with no booster. Several rock fire rings. Paved to camp pullouts, hard packed dirt campsites.
