Help the community by answering this question:


I have lived in Panguitch for 19 years, having moved here to follow a dream of building and operating a full service Lodge at Panguitch Lake. I feel like we were welcomed immediately upon moving here, even though we lived at the Lake for the first 3 years we were here. Panguitch people are very giving and the lives of most of the residents of our city, revolve around their children and grandchildren. Family is number one. Go to any activity that involves the youth, and almost every child will have at least one parent and many have grandparents there, also.
Service to the community is just a way of life for the residents. Panguitch has a great number of festivals, activities, and recreational tournaments which are designed to bring tourists and visitors to the area, and show them a great time. Some of the residents of Panguitch, you will see at every activity, because of their devotion to the community. If you do not want to be involved, on the other hand, no one will push you into anything.
The schools in Panguitch are always involving parents. The elementary school is as good as a small town school can be. There is a huge emphasis on reading daily. Outdoor and nature related activities are often a part of the children's learning as are small field trips. As the kids get into middle and high school, sports becomes a large part of their lives, and the community's pride. There have been some problems with money in the district, that has caused the elimination of programs that would be nice for those who are so not athletic. Music of all kinds, indusrial art classes, dance (drill team), are a few that come immediately to mind. The pool was shut down this year, and many of us miss it.
As a community, we have a great many things that small cities like ours and many much larger do not have. The Triple C Arena, Skateboard Park, First Class Firehouse, Social Hall, Exercise Facility, Historical Courthouse that just underwent an incredible renovation, County Jail Facility, Airport, and our county owned Hospital, are all structures that didn't exist, or were completely renovated since we moved here 19 years ago.
I could go on and on about the recreational opportunities that are right out your back door. You could spend the rest of your life and still not see all Southern Utah has to offer. I recommend you go to www,, and to get an idea. We look forward to your arrival, and if I can be of further help, contact me at Thanks, Tracy

I am a realtor in the Georgia mountains, but I just returned from a trip to Southern Utah and we did some land research. Panguitch has a lake area with cabins. Cedar City was an impressive town-neat, clean, just of I-15 and the commute is not bad to Panguitch. Cedar City is also a university town and has 3 high schools, one in particular looked nearly new and was in a complex with middle school and elem. school. If you go to and put in Panguitch, Cedar City, Parowan and any others in the area, you will get a good list of details including school information that might help you. Good luck with your search.

Mrs. Haderlie,
Check out my website at and click the spinning apple link in the upper right corner of the home page. Fill out the short info section and select the city and school you would like a free, printable report on. In terms of Panguitch, check out this website for some useful info on the community and the area. It is really close to some awesome natural attractions if you are big on the outdoors and you are in the high desert if you enjoy that type of scenery. Red rock country has always inspired me to take up photography as a hobby with all the neat features and shadows and the sunsets can be pretty spectacular. Ok enough of my rambling, if you have any more questions, feel free to email me at the "contact me" page of my website. I hope this was helpful and good luck with you move!
