Panguitch Lake provides both summer and winter recreation, whether it is fishing, hiking, or ATV trails. Area streams empty into Panguitch Lake which created a small lake that ancient Native Americans used during their summer stay on the Markagunt Plateau. Hence, the name Panguitch means, “Big Fish.” Later on, Mormon settlers built a dam on the north end for the purpose of storing water for summer crop irrigation. Panguitch Lake features National Forest Service campgrounds, grocery store, cabin rentals, and private homes.
