The Gunlock Reservoir was opened to the public in 1970 as a state park for irrigation and flood control. With a mild winter climate, Gunlock State Park can be visited all year long and is surrounded by the red sandstone and lava rock mountains, which makes for beautiful scenery while you enjoy boating, camping, and fishing. It is a favorite in Southern Utah and while you’re driving to the park you are on what used to be the Old Spanish Trail that was used from Sante Fe, New Mexico to Los Angeles from the 1820’s until after 1849 when a shorter route was taken to the gold fields.
