Weber River

The Weber River is aproximately 125 miles long. The river starts in the Uintas near Reids Peak (11780 feet elevation). The upper reaches of the river are remote and accessible only on foot.

The Weber River meets State Road 213 near its confluence with its Middle Fork. The upper section of State Road 213 crosses several forks of the river including, Gardners Fork, the Middle Fork and Dry Fork. The Middle Fork starts near Mount Watson (elevation 11521). Dry Fork starts near Fish Lake.

State Road 213 runs through a 9 mile stretch of private land with no public access to the river. The road becomes paved near the confluence of the Weber River and the Smith and Morehouse Creek. The road passes through another long stretch of private lands. There is public access at the confluence of the South Fork of the Weber River and at the Weber Cottonwood Campground.

The only developed campground on the river at at Weber Cottonwood and at the Smith and Morehouse Reservoir.

At Oakley, the Weber River takes a Northward turn. It passes through the town of Peoa and into the Rockport Lake. This lask is held back by the Wanship Dam. The river joins Interstate 80 at Wanship and flows North to Coalville and the Echo Reservoir.

At Echo Junction, I80 climbs through Echo Canyon toward Evanston. I84 follows the Weber River Northwest through Henefer, The Upper Weber River Canyon, Morgan Valley and the Weber Canyon.

The Weber River enters into the Great Salt Lake Valley just south of Ogden. The Ogden River joins the Weber River before the Weber River meets its salty end in the Great Salt Lake.
