About
Causey Reservoir is located on the South Fork of the Ogden River above Huntsville. It is one of the most scenic and beautiful reservoirs in Utah. The reservoir is nestled in steep valley terrain the main body branching into three distinct canyons.

Getting There
Causey Reservoir is east of Ogden in Ogden Canyon. Travel on U-39 up Ogden Canyon to Huntsville, and continue for eight more miles to a turnoff on the right. Follow this improved gravel road for two miles to the reservoir. The turnoff should be well marked, as there is a Boy Scout Camp on the north arm of the reservoir. Access to the reservoir is limited, as some portions of the shore are privately owned, restricting land access to most of the reservoir.

Accommodations
The Forest Service once maintained latrines at the reservoir, but they have fallen victim to vandals. A Weber County Park is located just below the dam, with drinking water, camping, and latrines.

      We haven’t had any divers report water temperature lately.
      As for cliff jumping, it is not our place to dermine the risk of cliff diving. Each individual will have to weigh that risk themselves.
