Situated at the confluence of the north, south, and center forks of the Ogden River, the Pineview Dam has afforded year-round irrigation for farmers in the Ogden River Canyon since it was built under President Roosevelt’s authorization in 1934. Soon thereafter it became an epicenter for boating and recreation for Eden, Huntsville, and nearby Salt Lake City.

Pineview Reservoir is encircled by the Wasatch Mountains, providing an incredible backdrop, and all but eliminating wind from the water’s surface. This makes it a supremely popular destination for boaters, water skiers, wake boarders, SUP boarders, and the like. Cemetery Point is home to a fairly small boat ramp and a small set of docks as well as potable water. Picnic tables and a paved parking lot make Cemetery Point a popular choice for families and groups. Plan to arrive early to secure yourself a spot on fair-weather weekends. Due to illegal dumping and rampant littering, the Forest Service initiated a fee for all reservoir use and recreation several years age; expect to pay $16 per day per vehicle with or without vessel. Walk-in access at all sites costs $6.

A surprisingly wide variety of fish inhabit the reservoir, making it an excellent location for sport fishing. The grand prize: trophy-sized tiger muskie—a hybrid fish combining a muskie with a pike. The record tiger muskie caught in the reservoir weighed in at a whopping 33 pounds and measured 49 inches. The South Fork of the Ogden River, just above the dam, is a popular fly fishing destination with medium-sized trout biting nearly year round.

During the summer Outdoor Retailer event, Cemetery Point is awash in SUP boards, colorful kayaks, canoes, other personal watercraft, and countless outdoor industry insiders. Note that during the event, held once a year, during mid-August, the beach and day use area is closed to the public.

Want to stay overnight? Reserve a campsite at Anderson Cove Campground or Jefferson Hunt Campground.
