Both sides of the Flaming Gorge offer great views, it's hard to recommend east or west. The best might be to do a round tour in order to see all overviews.

Great way to spend part of our vacation. Nice scenic ride and a great big dam up close! Lots of camping, fishing, boating, hiking opportunities for those looking for a place to stay a few days or more.

We were in the area and wanted to see this place. Unfortunately, we didn't have the time (3 hours) to circumnavigate the entire reservoir. We opted to just drive down a ways to get a view but could never find a viewing lookout.
