Ogden City Vacations Vacation Rentals in Ogden - Cabins, Condos & Holiday Homes For Rent

Ogden sits high in the mountain desert of northern Utah at the base of the Wasatch range between the Ogden and Weber rivers.

The city is well know as a mecca for adrenaline seeking alpine sports enthusiasts and for its vibrant and very lively night scene. In the 1920s, Al Capone once said that this place was too wild! - while the gambling and bootlegging have long gone, they have been replaced by skiing, skydiving and mountain biking to name a few.
