We found Deer Creek State Park, UT online and it has full hook ups for campers. Beautiful scenery and close to other spots of interest like Strawberry Reservoir. A bargain to be out in nature.

We didn't have a chance to see much of the park, so this review only pertains to the camping experience. The full hookup sites in Chokecherry were really pretty nice. They are right in the open in the sage brush; however, the park has erected...More

This little park is always jam-packed with cars. There is something for everyone... picnic tables, swimming, paddleboarding, boaring, water skiing...

We drove by and stopped few times for photograph and small snacks. Probably during the summer hot days there a lot of people enjoying water activities but as first week of April nobody was around.

This is a great little lake with rentals available for adding to your adventure. Parking and day use is easy access. It's not too cold, even in Oct. folks were still paddle boarding and sailing.

Deer Creek is a good reservoir. It has three parks along the shores, each nice. The lake itself is usually quite calm in the morning, a little rougher in the afternoon. Good for boating, fishing, kayaking and sail boarding.

The first thing you need to know is that the beaches are very rocky so probably not the place for older children. Also not the place if you are a serious swimmer as there seemed to be no control over the boat area. Pleasant enough...More

$15 a day for Rocky beaches, Beer cans and water bottles everywhere? Absolutely Awful. AVOID THIS NASTY PLACE AT ALL COST. Tried to take my young child in the water on rubber kayaks and all the speed boats and jet skis create huge waves that...More
