Overview

Overview

Limber Flag Yurt is located in the Ashley National Forest, approximately 20 air miles north of Vernal, in eastern Utah. It provides year-round primitive lodging for guests. The yurt is open for reservations all months except November, April and May. Hiking, off-roading, skiing and snowshoeing are the area's most popular activities.

Natural Features:

The yurt is situated at the edge of a clearing, at an elevation of 9,000 feet. Pines and aspens surround the clearing and offer some shade. From the deck, guests are awarded beautiful views toward Vernal, off in the distance. Wildlife and summer wildflowers are abundant.

Recreation:

In summer months, numerous hiking, biking and off-road trails crisscross the area. In winter months, endless cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails are right out the door.

The yurt is approximately 314 square-feet (less than 20 feet in diameter) and has limited amenities. No plumbing, running water or electricity is provided. The maximum capacity of overnight guests at the yurt complex is ten people. Tent camping is allowed outside.

Two double bunk beds with mattresses are provided, to sleep up to eight people. No linens, bedding or pillows are provided. The yurt is equipped with a heavy-duty propane camp stove for cooking, a wood-burning stove for heat, a folding table and chairs. A basic assortment of pots, pans, dishes and utensils is provided, but guests are encouraged to bring their own supplies.

A portable propane Coleman lantern is supplied but guests must bring extra propane bottles and mantles. The Forest Service provides propane for the cook stove and wood for the wood stove. A vault toilet is located outside the yurt.

Nearby Attractions:

Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area is known not only for its beautiful red cliffs, but also for its world-class fishing for lake, brown and rainbow trout.
