 Utah Travel Center State ParksScofield


Description. Scofield is both a summer and winter recreation delight. It is situated 7,600 feet above sea level in the Manti-LaSal Mountains of the Wasatch Plateau. The 2,800-acre lake offers excellent boating and year-round fishing. During winter months, the area serves as a base for snowmobiling and cross-country skiing in spectacular mountains surrounding the park.

Scofield State Park is off U.S. Highway 6, just 10 miles southwest on State Route 96. Three state-owned facilities are available for recreationists. Mountain View, located six miles north of Scofield, offers a 34-unit campground, modern rest rooms, hot showers, fish cleaning and sanitary disposal stations, day-use area, rental boat slips and boat launching ramp. Madsen Bay, located on the north end of the reservoir, is a popular area for groups and family reunions. Facilities include a 40-unit campground, modern rest rooms, fish cleaning and sanitary disposal stations, boat ramp and parking. Lakeside day-use area offers modern rest rooms, group-use pavilion and a fishing platform for the disabled.
