Palisade Reservoir


Palisade Reservoir is located in Southcentral Utah. Palisades Reservoir should be good fishing for mostly recently planted rainbows with an occasional larger trout. The state record tiger trout was caught here last year. Nine-mile reservoir is close by, and if you want to go exploring you can always drive up Fairview Canyon and fish Huntington, Fairview, Electric Lake, Cleveland and several other bodies of water.

The lake has started to freeze.  Depending on where you are on the lake the ice thickness can go from 3 to 6 inches.  There is a little bit of open water at the inlet.  Also with the lake rising a little bit everyday, the edge of the lake will be frozen in the morning but could have up to 6 feet of open water by the end of the day. So if you go fishing remember that and use caution on the ice.

Our Day Use areas are open but our restrooms are now closed for the winter.  However the vault toilet in the Gold Hill groupsite is open and will remain open all winter.

All of our campgrounds and sites are now closed.  Our cabins and cabin tents are also closed.  To make a reservation for next summer either click on the reservation link on our parks website or call 1-800-322-3770.

The Golf course is also now closed for the winter.  The golf course now has a new website.  Go to http://www.golfpalisade.com/ On there you can get information about the golf course and even make a tee time.  Or you can call 435-835- GOLF(4653) to make a tee time over the phone or ask questions you may have.
