Kolob Reservoir

Beyond the Lava Point turn-off, the land becomes relatively well developed, with many ranches, houses and log cabins dotted amongst the fir trees, many used only as summer homes. These continue about as far as Kolob Reservoir, at 8,118 feet, where the road is now unpaved, yet continues for many miles through the upper Kolob Plateau, eventually meeting other routes that lead towards Cedar City. The reservoir has many good places for camping right at the waters edge, and is also good for fishing. It is especially scenic in winter, when frozen and surrounded by snow covered slopes and forests of aspen.
