Known as the gateway to the Uinta Mountains and Wasatch National Forest, Francis, Utah, is located at the southern end of the vast landscape known as the Kamas Valley, characterized by its relative isolation and intense natural beauty. Logging, ranching, and dairy farming are what initially attracted settlers to the area. Now recognized for its open space recreation and family friendly atmosphere, Kamas Valley has become an attractive and welcoming place to live.
Surrounded by mountains, the Valley offers a scenic getaway that retains its rural atmosphere in the midst of expansion. Since its incorporation in 1939, Francis has enjoyed steady growth brought about by the outdoor lifestyle in the greater Park City area. Francis provides many activities for outdoor enthusiasts including hunting, fishing, camping, and hiking, making it an ideal location to live or play.
