Although Daggett County is Utah's youngest and least populated County, the area enjoys a rich and interesting history. The County broke off of Uintah County in 1918 and was named for Ellsworth Daggett who helped develop irrigation for the county. It's a recreation and scenic paradise with beautiful red rock canyons, lakes, rivers, and forests. Area photographs are available in our Photo Gallery.
