Welcome to Northeastern Utah
A remote and rural area, Northeastern Utah is high-wilderness terrain (much of which is more than a mile above sea level) that has traditionally attracted farmers and miners. Rising oil prices spurred oil and gas development in the rocky valleys, which in turn has led to increased services in towns like Vernal. Most travelers come to see Dinosaur National Monument, but you'll also find other dino dig sites and museums, as well as Fremont Indian rock art and ruins in the area. Up near the Wyoming border, the Uinta Mountains and Flaming Gorge attract trout fishers and wildlife-lovers alike.
