Kamas has long been known as the “Gateway to the Uintas” and it has been used as a supply station for those people who pass through to the Uinta Mountains and Wilderness Area for camping, hunting, hiking, horseback riding, and other recreational activities.

The City of Kamas is located about eighteen miles east of Park City and about forty-five miles southeast of Salt lake City in a valley surrounded by the Uinta Mountains to the east, the Wasatch Mountains to the west, the Provo River on the south, and the Weber River to the north. Beaver Creek, a tributary of the Weber, traverses the center of the city.

Kamas and the entire valley are characterized by its relative isolation and intense natural beauty. Logging, ranching and dairy farming are what initially attracted settlers to the area. Now open space, recreation, and family friendly atmosphere have made Kamas a very desirable place to live.


Water Rate Increase Notice

On September 13, 2022, the Kamas City Council approved an increase in water rates and overage rates for Kamas City residents. The new base rate will be increased from $28 to $31 per month. This follows discussions concerning the financial status of the Kamas City water fund. After reviewing a study done by Rural Water Association of Utah experts, the City Council felt it necessary to approve this increase to maintain the financial stability of the water system.

This increase becomes effective November 1, 2022
