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.

Winter Blues: The winter season comes with its share of difficulties. In the past, 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 please call the town office, so we can assist you. The water meters need to be accessed by the public works employees only.

The Town of Manila is encouraging everyone to have a pressure regulator value (PRV) on their personal water lines going into their homes. We are reminding everyone that per ordinance the Town of Manila is only responsible for maintaining/repairing the Town’s infrastructure. Any problems that occur after the Town’s water meter and onto personal property is the homeowner’s responsibility.
