The Great Outdoors

One of the best things about camping at Flaming Gorge/Manila KOA is that you’ll be just minutes away from Ashley National Forest. This extensive natural area is a hotspot for adventure activities. Within the 1.3-million-acre boundaries, there are elevations of up to 13,500 feet and landscapes which range from mountain peaks to high desert and lush forest. Ashley National Forest is home to both vast wilderness areas and accessible recreational areas. You can hike and mountain bike in the shadow of Kings Peak, the highest peak in Utah, or take your rental RV for an unforgettable drive on the Flaming Gorge Uintas National Scenic Byway. Visitors can also get active with watersports, horseback riding, and ATV driving, or just enjoy a picnic in the great outdoors. There’s fun to be had in the wintertime too so remember to bring your snowshoes, skis, snowboard, or snowmobile for exploring the trails.A popular spot to visit within Ashley National Forest is Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area. At its heart is the Flaming Gorge Reservoir which stretches for an impressive 91 miles between dramatic red cliffs in the southwest region of Wyoming. The area is best known for its watersports. Here you can rent a boat and traverse the lake on waterskis or paddle a canoe or kayak on one of the connected rivers. Tubing and swimming are also possible at Flaming Gorge Recreation Area. There are discoveries to be made on dry land too. Just hop on to one of the designated hiking trails - these range from short and gentle to challenging full-day hikes - or take a tour of Flaming Gorge Dam.Another natural highlight of the region is Red Fleet State Park, which is located just a few miles from Vernal. The 1,963-acre state park is famous for its unique ship-shaped sandstone formations as well as its Dinosaur Trackway Trail. You can park your camper rental at the visitor’s center and follow in the prehistoric footsteps of dinosaurs for 1.5 miles. During the summertime heat, you can return to the park's 750-acre reservoir for swimming and boating.When your legs are tired from hiking and you’ve seen enough wildlife, you can take your Manila camper rental for a spin on Sheep Creek Geological Loop. It’s one of the most spectacular scenic driving routes in the state. This 13-mile route begins five miles south of Manila and winds through the landscape of Sheep Creek Canyon National Geological Area. Along the way, you can see the rocky layers of the Uinta Fault which runs along the northern side of the mountain range. You may also spot bighorn sheep and a diverse range of birdlife along the way.

Explore the Area

Outdoor adventures aren’t the only thing that Utah has to offer when you book an RV in Daggett County. You’ll also have the chance to visit historical museums and cultural sites or enjoy the modern amenities of nearby cities.The historic city of Fort Bridger is just a short drive away when you’re RV camping at Flaming Gorge/Manila KOA. Fort Bridger is part of the Bridger Valley, an area which was once a crossroads of five major trading and pioneer routes including the Pony Express Route and the Oregon/California Trail. Today the city is just a stop on Wyoming’s historic byway, and visitors can learn about the importance of Bridger Valley at Fort Bridger State Historic Site. The site survived five eras of occupation before it became a military outpost. Three miles from Interstate 80, here visitors can see the 19th-century barracks building, browse artifacts in the museum, and visit the reconstructed trading post.Another must-see spot while you’re renting an RV here is Utah Field House of Natural History State Park Museum in Vernal. Covering an area of 22,000 square feet, this state park museum preserves the prehistoric remains and history of the Uinta Basin. Here you can see real fossils in the museum's displays and life-sized dinosaur replicas outside in the Dinosaur Garden. The 20-foot-tall Tyrannosaurus rex is certain to impress adults and children alike, as will the informative and cultural exhibitions. There’s something to interest everyone when you rent a camper near Flaming Gorge/Manila KOA.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
