The Oaks Restaurant in Snowbasin

Address:
750 Ogden Canyon Road Ogden, UT 801-394-2421

Overview:
In the early 1900′s small businesses began to spring up in Ogden Canyon. To mention a few there were the Hermitage Hotel, Winslow House, Idlewild Resort and the Pineview Club. Tourists, residents, and President Teddy Roosevelt journeyed the canyon to enjoy a meal, row a boat, catch a fish, ride a trolley, and spend the night in relaxing accommodations.

It was C.S. Potter who built the Oaks Resort about a mile from its present location. During this time the canyon road was nothing more than a dirt trail used by settlers, residents, and ranchers. Patrons arrived by horse drawn buggy and later by electric trolley car. Remants of the rock wall from the trolley remain visible across the river.

In 1933, in search of high ground, the Campbells, then owners, moved The Oaks to its present location using a team of mules and horses. The Oaks was open only during summer months and became famous for hot dogs and pink popcorn served through a take-out window. The Campbells sold to another family who continued business seasonally until 1981.

The Oaks was then purchased by Keith and Belinda Rounkles and it hasn’t been the same. After extensive renovation The Oaks became a full service eatery open year round serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Rounkles in 1994 purchased 160 acres surrounding The Oaks to help preserve this unique dining experience. The Oaks is the oldest continuing business in Ogden Canyon. Please visit and enjoy dining in the relaxed atmosphere of scenic Ogden Canyon along the Ogden river.

Take time to view the many photos and postcards depicting canyon history. Once you’ve been here we are confident you will return time and time again.
