All we needed was a clean room and a comfortable bed and this place was fine. I can only comment...more
We spent a few nights in Beaver and wanted something other than Mexican or fast food. We heard the pizza was pretty good at the place next to the theater on Main St. Well, the pizza is better than just good, it's really excellent.We were in there with friends from NJ when the girl asked where we were all from. Turns out her dad is the owner/chef...more
We got this tip from a friend. The restaurant is located in a campground just East of Beaver. The place is in an old log cabin and is very rustic. In this case "rustic" is pleasant. Food was good, service was good and prices were reasonable. Near perfect for a small town.We were there over a holiday weekend and the place was hopping. Everyone...more
We went here from a recommendation on VT. The rec was several years old and things certainly change. The food was OK, decor interesting, owner a really nice guy. There are not a lot of places to eat in Beaver so this one sounded real promising. I honestly can't recommend it. Seemed pricey and quality was just not there. Best part was the free...more
Probably because it's not so much known, Elk Meadows food service stations offer excellent and friendly service to the guests.I don't remember what I had (must have been something quick and warm) - but I know that the hot chocolate was outstandingly good.Perfect excuse for me to make stops there like every 1-2 hours :-) They have 2 service...more

Hop off I-15 even if you're not staying the night and grab some excellent food at the Garden of Eat'n at the north end of town. It looks like a truck stop, but the food most definitely is not typical of such places.There's another Garden of Eat'n up in Fillmore which is reported to me to be just as good, although I've never been there.more
By car is the only realistic way to get there. Greyhound does stop here, though, but I have no idea when or how much it costs.
Beaver is small and is no problem to navigate. Main Street runs N/S, and the city is laid out grid fashion like most Utah towns.
On our way out to the Frisco Ghost Town (another story) we saw a sign for this place. We stopped on the way home and discovered a small treasure. They make the cheese on site and my wife tells me the prices are very fair. I got some really "niipy" cheddar and it was excellent.
The best though is the ice cream. They don't make it there but WOW! Even if you're just passing Beaver on the interstate hop off and get a cone. Waffle, for sure.
Who knows. I doubt there are any, except maybe for frat boys looking for kitsch with 'Beaver' on it :-). I couldn't resist grabbing this pic of a truck stop in town. Where is Disney when you need them?
I couldn't believe that no one put former Elk Meadows, now Eagle Point, here on the list of skiing :-).
Luckily, friends took me there in 1992, and I had a really wonderful skiing experience! With an elevation of 10.400 ft, it's even higher in altitude than Utah's famous Park City and Deer Valley !
It has 400 acres of skiable area, 1 Quad, 1 Triple, 2 Double, 1 Platter and more than 30 ascents, half of them rated intermediate.
So, if you want to ski in a less crowded area within Utah - THIS is the place.
Lifts run daily, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Equipment: Nothing to bring as a tourist who want's to spend some nice days there. I was there just coincidentially, friends took me there at the beginning of a exlpore-Utah's-national-park-vacation, so I didn't have any of my gear with me.
You can rent all gear there, ski, boots, poles, gloves, etc.
Ok, bring some warm clothing and a jacket.
Update, November 2011:
The ski resort opened again. And is now being called Eagle Point. Although my experience was from 1992, so by now almost 20 years ago, I keep my tip, albeit updated. Simply because I had such a lot of fun and especially since Utah has so many famous ski resorts around Salt Lake City, this one in the south of the state is well worth a visit especially when one looks for lesser crowded slopes :-)
Visit the Tushar mountains to the east. A drive up Highway 153 is spectacular.
Fondest memory: I was in Beaver on business a few days before posting this and had forgotten what a neat place this was. It's laid out along the east side of I-15 about 100 miles north of St. George, 200 miles south of Salt Lake City and makes a very convenient place to stop for the night if heading to Vegas from Salt Lake or vice-versa.
