Exploring Hyrum Reservoir and Hyrum Town: A Hidden Gem in Cache Valley


Nestled in the picturesque Cache Valley near Logan, northeastern Utah, Hyrum Reservoir stands as a serene oasis waiting to be explored. Popularly known as a state park, this reservoir offers a myriad of recreational opportunities, including fishing, hiking, boating, camping, and picnicking, making it a favorite destination for both locals and visitors alike.

Despite enduring a decade-long drought, Hyrum Reservoir continues to thrive, boasting a current water level ranging between 94-99%, ensuring ample water for various outdoor activities. Thanks to a modern camera system, the Hyrum Dam Cam, visitors can conveniently check real-time reservoir conditions before planning their visit, adding an extra layer of convenience to their experience.

Beyond the natural beauty of the reservoir lies the quaint town of Hyrum, home to a warm and welcoming community. With a population of approximately 9,362 inhabitants, according to the latest census data from 2021, and an annual per capita income of $22,237.00, Hyrum exudes a charming small-town vibe that captivates visitors.

During a recent visit to Hyrum Reservoir, I was struck by the genuine kindness of the locals and the well-maintained facilities provided by the park. While the weather may not always align with expectations, every visit offers a unique opportunity to capture the essence of this hidden gem.
