Kolob Reservoir is at the very end of the Kolob Terrace Road on Kolob Terrace. It is a large man made lake sitting at 8,100', surrounded by Oak and mixed Conifer-Aspen Woodland. The reservoir is ice free form April to November most years.
The reservoirs provides excellent habitat for diving ducks and waterbirds, including COMMON LOON during spring and fall migration. GREATER SCAUP and other diving ducks occasionally show up, as well as various shorebirds. The north end is often shallow and better for dabbling ducks, wading birds, and shorebirds.
