Gunlock Reservoir is a spectacular place to enjoy paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, or wakeboarding. There are also camping spots available, and in the spring, the runoff from the reservoir, if it’s high enough, creates a spectacular waterfall on the south side of the lake.

The town of Gunlock itself is a spectacularly beautiful example of the typical small town in Utah. It sits just north of the reservoir and the highlight of the year in Gunlock is always the Gunlock Rodeo – held each year on the 4th of July weekend.

After you leave the town of Gunlock, you’ll wind your way up to the top of a mesa where you’ll eventually find yourself in another beautiful small Utah town, Veyo.
While you're there, do yourself a favor and stop and grab a bite to eat and a pie at Veyo Pies. You won’t regret the decision. The pies in Veyo are some of the best in the state. Hands down. To find out more about Veyo Pies got to https://veyopies.com/
