Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest is a United States National Forest located primarily in northern Utah (81.23%), with smaller parts extending into southeastern Idaho (16.42%) and southwestern Wyoming (2.35%). The name is from the Ute word Wasatch for a low place in high mountains, and the French word Cache meaning to hide. It was originally a term that referred to fur trappers, the first Europeans to visit the land. The Cache and Wasatch forest boundaries include 1,607,177 acres (6,504.01 km2) of land.

The Wasatch-Cache was headquartered in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah until August 2007 when its management was combined with the Uinta National Forest and is currently being managed as the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest. The merged forest is based out of both Salt Lake City, Utah and Provo The Kamas Ranger District will be merged with the Uinta National Forest's Heber Ranger District in Heber City. With the newly included Uinta National Forest the forest will expand to 2,487,896 acres (10,068.16 km2).
