Pineview Reservoir is the busiest reservoir for it's size in the State of Utah. This is because of it's close proximity to Davis and Weber Counties population centers. You can leave your home and be at the water's edge within one-half hour. The scenery around Pineview is worth the visit. Seeing the mountains from the surface of the water is an experience to remember.
Boating laws are enforced by Weber County Sheriff Deputies. The ramps, campgrounds, and picnic grounds are owned by the US Forest Service and operated under a special use permit issued to American Land and Leisure from Orem, Utah. The water levels and dam are owned and operated by the USDI Bureau of Reclamation and local irrigation companies.
Port Ramp Marina
Located on the west shoreline of the reservoir; this is the most used launching facility. The road into the marina has a large Forest Service sign identifying the site immediately across Highway 158. The facility has a concrete ramp to launch boats and a large paved parking lot. It also has a gravel lot used as overflow parking. Port Ramp has a convenience dock for public use. A sewage dump station is located next to the two toilet buildings in the paved parking lot. There is a Concessionaire manager who lives on site if you need information or assistance.
Cemetery Point Marina
Cemetery Point Marina is located in the town of Huntsville. To access the facility, follow Highway 39 to the eastern side of Huntsville. Follow the signs to the swim beach and marina. Cemetery Point is at the end of the road thru Huntsville.
The marina is the first entryway to the left after the fee station. No trailers are allowed beyond this point because parking is tight in the beach area.
This marina is fairly simple with a small paved parking area, a larger gravel parking lot, and a small set of convenience docks.
Anderson Cove Campground Boat Ramp
On the south shore of the reservoir is Anderson Cove Campground. This recreation complex includes a shoreline campground with reservable individual campsites and two group sites, a day-use beach, and a boat ramp. A convenience dock is provided for public use.
Remember: GLASS, FIRES, OR CAMPING IS NOT ALLOWED ON THE SHORELINE ANYWHERE. Boats must be anchored at least 20 feet off the shore to stay overnight. These rules are to protect the quality of the water from the impacts of camping on the shoreline.
Numerous facilities around the 28 miles of shoreline offer many types of water-based recreation. This includes trailheads, fishing access, and beaches. The reservoir has buoys marking areas of the water surface designated with speed or boat restrictions. Please honor these buoy lines. Any type of vessel is allowed at Pineview but we discourage boats that are extremely large or speed boats. The reservoir is only 3,000 acres when full and those types of boats are out of place. We also limit the number of boats on the lake at one time at our ramps. This limit is based on the current water level and to make the boating safer for everyone. On the west shore near the narrow neck of the reservoir is an area designated for “no wake” boating. This allows many non-motorized boating uses like wake boarding or sail boating. This is where the wind tends to be more consistent. Access here is from the Pineview Trailhead which also serves as parking for the Skyline Trail and the Pineview West Trail which follows the shoreline for over three miles.
Fishing occurs nearly everywhere at the reservoir. There are many roadside parking areas all around the reservoir. Popular sites are in the shallow waters of the reservoir on the south-east or north-east sides. A “no wake” area has been designated for fishing in the waters just north of the Huntsville peninsula at the east shore (Spring Creek). Types of fish in Pineview are warm water species including the planted Tiger Muskie which are reaching record sizes. Check the State of Utah fishing regulations since there are size and quantity limits.
The reservoir has some great beaches. Cemetery Point is very popular and has picnic tables and paved parking. North of Huntsville is Middle Inlet beach which is good access but not as fancy as Cemetery Point. Anderson Cove Campground on the South shore has a beach area available for day-use.
To get to Pineview Reservoir travel on I-15 to Ogden, exit at 12th street, to Hwy 39. Travel approx 6 mile to the reservoir.
