Welcome to Manila, Utah

Home of the Flaming Gorge

Manila Utah, a short three hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Salt Lake City, Manila exists as a small, quiet community offering a completely unique experience. The valley opens wide at your feet and the pollution free evening skies are filled with stars that seem almost within reach. In winter, the valley is surrounded by snow laden mountains, providing breath taking views. A multitude of wild animals including deer, antelope, rabbit, fox, bobcat, and the occasional mountain lion, share Manila with the local population. Whatever you desire in outdoor adventure, you are bound to find it here within the cedar, juniper, aspen and/or pine covered mountains rising to the south, and scenic desert formations fading into the northern horizon. Tucked comfortably against the hillsides, Manila rests on a valley which quietly overlooks the immense beauty of the Flaming Gorge Reservoir.

We welcome you to our town and invite you to stay as long as you would like, hoping your visit to Manila Utah will be filled with lasting memories.

Roads: The Town of Manila has recently formulated a Road Management Plan which includes the maintenance/improving of our paved roads, upgrading our gravel roads, and developing preliminary engineering plans to improve town drainage. The Flaming Gorge Road & Travel Special Service District has been supportive throughout this process. They have agreed to help fund the Town of Manila with a $60,000.00 grant. This will include a stock pile of gravel for road base and money for an engineering analysis of the Town roads and storm drainage system. We greatly appreciate their financial support. Also, special thanks to council member Ross Catron for his expertise in this area and for helping the Town develop the Management Plan.

Winter Blues: The winter season comes with its share of difficulties. Some residents have had problems with frozen water meters and water lines. We would like to remind everyone that if you need your water shut off to please call the town office so we can assist you. The water meters need to be accessed by the public works employees only.

Thank you to all those who have assisted with snow removal after the winter storms. Our town roads are being plowed by our Public Works employees and it is wonderful to see neighbors helping neighbors with their driveways and walkways.

Stay Warm: Spring will soon be on its way!
