Huntington North Dam (National ID # UT10122) is a dam in Emery County, Utah.

The earthen dam was constructed between 1964 and 1966 by the United States Bureau of Reclamation, with a height of 74 feet and a length of 1907 feet at its crest.[1] It impounds Huntington Creek for irrigation water storage as part of the Emery County Project.[2] The dam is owned by the Bureau, and operated by the local Emery Water Conservancy District.

The reservoir it creates, Huntington Lake, has a normal water surface of 242 acres, and a maximum storage capacity of 5,420 acre-feet.[3] Recreation includes camping, boating, hiking, fishing (for bluegill, sunfish, largemouth bass, and rainbow trout) [4] and the facilities of the adjacent Huntington State Park.
