Daggett County Resource Assessment

Daggett County Resource Assessment

With the smallest county population in Utah and cut off from the rest of the state by the gigantic Uintah mountain range, Daggett County could easily be thought to belong to Wyoming. This small misplaced county is located in the extreme northeastern corner of Utah.

The total land area in Daggett County is 729 square miles. This makes it the fourth smallest county in the State of Utah, making up only .88 percent of the total state. The greater part of our county is mountainous and forested. A long section of the south line of Daggett County follows the peaks and ridges of the Uintah mountain range, the only major range in the United States which runs in an east-west direction. Maximum elevations are over 12,000 feet above sea level. Manila, which is the county seat for Daggett, is at an elevation of 6,346 feet above sea level.

Average low winter temperatures: 21�F; average high summer temperatures: 68�F; average precipitation: 12.5 inches.
