Years before the Mormon settlers arrived in the valley, General William H. Ashley stopped near what is now the edge of Hyrum Reservoir and cached $150,000 worth of furs, mostly beaver, in the winter of 1825-26. They were stored in a cave dug in a clay bank until they were retrieved the following summer. This history resulted in the French-Canadian name of Cache Valley and Cache County. Tucked into beautiful Cache Valley,
Tucked away in Cache County, Hyrum State Park offers many recreation opportunities including fishing, boating, and camping. Surrounded by tall, shady trees, Hyrum provides an excellent place for an afternoon picnic, or spend the whole weekend trolling on the lake catching yellow perch, rainbow trout, bluegill, and largemouth bass.
Hyrum State Park invites boating, year-round fishing, waterskiing, camping and swimming.
The park like 3 site campground rests at the north end of the reservoir.
The park is a favorite with locals. Attractions less than 15 minutes from the park include Utah State University, Logan Mormon Temple, scenic mountains and year-round blue ribbon fishing streams. Hardware Ranch, a winter feed elk ranch, is 16 miles from the park up beautiful Blacksmith Fork Canyon.
