Flaming Gorge

Read somewhere a bit ago that the road through/around the flaming gorge was, in spots, fairly white knuckle. Is there any truth to that?

Planning on heading that way in the next couple of days. So would appreciate any info. Will be traveling in 32' gas Class A.

As an aside is there anything special that we should be sure to take in?

Thanks for the info. Sure do appreciate it.

If you're going there thru Vernal there are some pretty good switch backs going up the mountain. Use low gear going up and especially coming down. I use to hunt up there and have pulled trailers and fifth wheels. 1st gear coming down is a must. Last trip up and down was in a 30 foot Georgetown with a 454 Vortec. It's been years since I came in from the Wyoming side but I think it's a lot more easier.

What highway will you use and coming from north or the south?

US191 has some 8-9% grades in a couple places. We've done this one.

US44 between Manila, UT and Jct with US 191 has 8%.

WY530 south of Green River, WY has 5-7%.

Just depends how confident you feel about your RV's braking power and your use of them.

I drive this area frequently.

Yes 44 from Manila has some serious grade. But, you won't be going more than 30 to 40, regardless. Unless you're in a 2 seat sportscar. It's a beautiful drive. Watch for deer and Rocky Mountain Sheep. Especially in the twilight. SLC to Flaming Gorge is 3-1/2 hours by car. 4-1/2 w/ RV.

191 from Rock Springs is an easy drive.

The best campground is Flaming Gorge Lodge Pine Forest. $45, per night, full hook up, 50 amp.

If you want more info, PM me.

We stayed in a public campground - no utilities - called Firefighters Campground, I believe. It was on the bluff and overlooked the water.
