Welcome to Manila, Utah

Flaming Gorge

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.

Save the Ute Mountain Lookout Tower

Ute Mountain Lookout Tower, the first and the last standing fire tower with living quarters above ground in Utah, offers a panoramic view of the picturesque Uinta Mountain Range. Today it stands as a monument to the early years of fire prevention and detection of the Forest Service, an important part of our cultural heritage. Ute Tower was a tourist attraction until its closing in September of 2008 due to decay in the tower and legs and stairway. Volunteers will learn about the early years of fighting forest fires while enjoying spectacular views of the Uinta Mountains and the satisfaction of preserving a piece of history. Join us for a week-long session to re-roof the cab, replace deteriorated timbers, rehabilitate the windows, and scrape and paint all exterior surfaces. Dates: Session 1: Aug. 26th-30th; Session 2: Sept. 3rd-6th; Session 3: Sept 9th-13th; Session 4: Sept 16th-20th.
