Experience Adventure at Bacon Memorial Park

Bacon Memorial Park sits in a small, quiet meadow near the Uintah Mountains, within minutes of hiking trails and picturesque mountains. One of the many shining outdoor recreation areas found within Uintah County, Bacon Memorial Park is a base camp to the best adventures in eastern Utah. 

Red Fleet State Park

Uintah County is home to diverse outdoor recreation and natural history, especially at its two state parks: Red Fleet State Park, and Steinaker State Park. One of the most popular features of eastern Utah is Dinosaur National Monument, which has given Vernal, UT the nickname of Dinosaurland, where Utah’s dinosaur legacy comes to life through the geological and climatic forces that have tilted, warped, and eroded the earth’s crust to reveal a treasure trove of fossils. You can reach all of these destinations within an hour from Bacon Memorial Park. 

Much closer to home at Bacon Memorial Park, you can find countless trailheads leading into Ashley National Forest. The park sits right on the edge of this vast national forest. You can explore Ashley National Forest’s best hiking trails here.

The surrounding Uinta Basin is a scenic blend of red rock landscapes and mountain vistas crisscrossed with trails, dotted with tranquil reservoirs and streams, and rich in geologic history. The area has been dubbed by locals as the “Origin of Adventure.” Rafting, boating, hiking, fishing and biking as well as some of the most scenic country around will give you a getaway experience unlike any other. So, if you’re ready to explore eastern Utah, use Bacon Memorial Park as your base camp to all of the surrounding adventures.
