The Vernal Field Office is located in the northeast corner of Utah and administers lands within Daggett, Duchesne and Uintah Counties, plus a small portion of Grand County. The BLM also has Native American Trust responsibilities for Northern Ute Tribal and allotted mineral trust lands located within these counties. The area includes the south slope of the Uinta Mountains, the Uinta Basin, and the Book Cliffs region.
The management area is bounded on the west by the Wasatch Mountains and on the east by the Douglas Creek Arch in Colorado. There are approximately 7,325,500 acres within the boundary, of which 1,725,500 acres are BLM-managed surface lands. The Vernal Field Office administers energy related mineral activities on 3.8 million acres of Federal mineral lands (includes 1.3 million acres of National Forest Service lands) and post lease mineral operations on Indian trust mineral lands.
The VFO also offers a great variety of recreational activities; such as mountain biking, hiking, hunting and fishing. For more information, please click on "What We Do" and the Recreation link.
