Hyrum is the home of Hyrum Dam State Park which is popular for fishing, water skiing, and camping. A huge herd of elk spends the winter months at Hardware Ranch which is reached by travelling East from Hyrum up Blacksmith Fork Canyon. The ranch is part of a wildlife management area, and sleigh rides are offered that take visitors into the herd. Several meat packing plants are located in Hyrum. Construction of a new library started in 2006.
Hyrum State Park offers many recreation opportunities including fishing, boating, and camping. Surrounded by tall, shady trees, Hyrum provides an excellent place for an afternoon picnic, or spend the whole weekend trolling on the lake catching yellow perch, rainbow trout, bluegill, and largemouth bass.
