The Place Called Tropic Reservoir

Looking for something other than hiking Bryce Canyon National Park? Tropic Reservoir is small but very scenic, approximately 25 minutes from the one and only Bryce View Lodge. It is a beautiful lake set in a ponderosa pine forest atop the Paunsaugunt Plateau. The reservoir is usually stocked with catchable-size (10-inch) rainbow trout, which provide good fishing throughout the summer. It can be readily fished from shore or small boats. Maximum water depth is 29 ft and average depth is 10 ft. The use of the boat ramp is seasonal depending on the water level. Do you have to fish? Absolutely not, this is a great place to go for a nice swim, and have a picnic. If you decide to bring your ATV’s up they have a few ATV trails that are very scenic, along with some hiking trails. The scenery is extraordinarily beautiful here, and not something you would want to miss. Check it out!
