Fishlake National Forest is a recreationalist's paradise known for its beautiful aspen forests, scenic byways, motorized and non-motorized trails, elk hunting, and mackinaw and trout fishing. Recreational opportunities include scenic drives, mountain biking, snowmobiling, ATV use, hiking, and camping. The mountains and plateaus of the forest provide exceptional use for All-Terrain Vehicle travel. The nationally recognized Paiute ATV Trail winds through 250 miles of the forest's most scenic terrain. For those who prefer the comfort of a car, the Beaver Canyon Scenic Byway travels along the beautiful Bear River lined by aspen, spruce, and fir trees. It ends at a lovely mountain lake.

The Fish Lake-Johnson Valley Area, a 13,700-acre region near the east side of the Fishlake National Forest, has 3,000 acres of lakes and reservoirs, 4 campgrounds, 7 picnic areas, 1 boating site, 3 resorts, and 125 summer homes. Several species of trout, splake, and large mackinaw provide challenging fishing throughout the year. A full range of services and facilities is available year-round at the three resorts. In addition to excellent fishing opportunities in the forest, the mountains and plateaus that form the Fishlake National Forest provide myriad roads and trails popular for high-clearance vehicle use. Trail use varies from light, along the Skyline Trail in the Tushar Mountains, to heavy, along the Lake Shore Trail at Fish Lake. Both of these roads are designated as National Recreation Trails.
