Francis, Utah, located at the southern end of Kamas Valley, is the gateway to the Uinta Mountains and Wasatch National Forest. Surrounded by mountains, the valley offers a scenic getaway that retains its rural atmosphere in the midst of expansion. Since it was incorporated in 1939, Francis has enjoyed the growth brought about by the development of the Jordanelle Dam and reservoir, as well as the resulting highway which now gives travelers a more direct route to the Salt Lake Metropolitan area, just 45 minutes away. Francis is home to Frontier Days, a popular three day celebration over the Labor Day weekend and provides many activities for outdoor enthusiasts including hunting, fishing, camping and hiking making it an ideal location to live or play.
