Powell named Kingfisher Canyon after noting the abundance of the bird throughout a section of the canyon between the great bend at Horseshoe Canyon and Beehive Point. Both Powell expeditions (1869 and 1871) camped just upstream of the bend. Kingfisher Canyon is now flooded by Flaming Gorge Reservoir.
