It is one of the most scenic and beautiful reservoirs in Utah. The reservoir is nestled in steep valley terrain and extends away from the main body into 3 distinct canyons. The majority of the shoreline is administered by the U.S. forest service, but access is limited due to private ownership at key access areas which restricts access to the area except by existing waterways. The majority of the shoreline is privately owned, however there is a public boat ramp facility.
