Causey Reservoir

Causey Reservoir is a mid-sized reservoir on South Fork of Ogden River. Located east of Ogden in Ogden Canyon, it is Utah's most scenic and beautiful reservoir. Nestling in steep valley terrain it extends from its main body into 3 distinct canyons.

Much of the shoreline is taken care of by the U.S. forest service and there is private ownership too. You get to use existing waterways along the public boat ramp facility. With no official boat launching facilities there is just wakeless speed for boats on water. The swimming is really terrific here.

Situated in timber-setting on an 5,700-foot elevation the reservoir has 140-acres of surface area. The recreation season usually begins in June through October. Fish species include rainbow, cutthroat, trout, rainbow, brown trout and salmon. There are no camping facilities as its considered a day-use area only. So boating, fishing and swimming are the popular watersports here.

You do have whitewater kayaking on the Ogden and Weber rivers near by. And yes the place is listed as a site for scuba diving too on Southwest listing for dive sites in Utah. The weber memorial campground at Causey offers flush toilets, running water and is located at the base of the dam at Causey Reservoir. There are baseball diamonds, volleyball & horseshoe pits, as well as an enclosed lodge. Individual and group reservations are available.
