Deer Creek State Park

Deer Creek is a medium-sized reservoir located in Heber Valley, just a short drive from Provo, Park City and Salt Lake City. The reservoir is a popular recreation spot because it is close to the Wasatch Front, but also because it is scenic and offers excellent conditions for boating, fishing and other water sports. Very nice campsites are available at the state park. Read more...
