At first glance, Lower Sand Cove Reservoir doesn’t seem very big, so you’d be surprised to hear that it is a great fishing spot, especially Bass fishing!
For me, I prefer to just go let my dog frolic and take my gun along sometimes. It’s a pretty area that leads to a ton of hiking areas as well including The Vortex.
The reservoir itself is a great place to go explore, camping, canoeing and maybe even a little swimming if you’re braver than the average bear. I personally wouldn’t recommend swimming in this reservoir.
It’s beautiful no matter what time of year you visit.
Because it’s not a very well-known spot in Southern Utah, you’re guaranteed to have fewer crowds than other areas, which is definitely a plus in my book!
Simply put, ” Lower Sand Cove Dam” in your GPS. This reservoir is located near Gunlock.
