There are many beautiful lakes and reservoirs in Utah. Some are accessible by car and some require hiking. I divided this list into four sections: drivable, hike around, hike-able, and viewable. “Drivable” lakes have a road that goes right to the lake. “Hike Around” also have a road to the lake, but have trails around or nearby the lake. You must hike to get to the “Hike-able” lakes. The hikes that have views of lakes from above are “Viewable”.

Here is a list of Lakes and Reservoirs in Utah, generally in order of north to south.
