Morgan County consists of six hundred ten square miles (610) that are nestled
within the Wasatch Mountains. The 7129 (2000) inhabitants enjoy the almost mile
high elevation which affords cool nights in the hot summer. The main entrance to
Morgan County is through Weber Canyon which opens on both the east and northwest
sides of the county. The Weber River flows from the east to the west through
this canyon. Morgan provides thirteen tributary creeks that add to the flow of
the river as it leads its way to the Great Salt Lake. Several world class ski
resorts are located within a 35 minute to an hour's drive from Morgan.
Bicyclists enjoy touring throughout Morgan Countywhich is known for its
spectacular scenery and wildlife.
Two dams, East Canyon and Lost Creek, are situated within Morgan's
boundaries. These provide both irrigation and culinary water for the lower
counties. Summer recreation is also provided at the designated State Parks
surrounding the East Canyon and Lost Creek Reservoirs.
