Jordanelle State Park

This is one of our more popular state parks, in part because it is located close to Salt Lake City and the Wasatch Front and also because it offers an array of recreation opportunities including camping, boating, swimming, fishing and hiking. Anglers fish for trout, bass and perch. Read more...


Things to Do

General Information

Request Information

The park offers two recreation areas, Hailstone and Rock Cliff. Hailstone is a large developed campground and day-use area on the west side of the reservoir, and is a favorite location of boaters and RV campers. Boat launch ramps are found here.

The park offers an Event Center located near the park entrance. Perched on a hill with a spectacular sweeping view of the reservoir, it's the perfect venue for weddings, reunions and meetings.

Rock Cliff Recreation Area is located on the southeast side of the reservoir and offers a quieter experience. Nestled in the tall cottonwoods on the Upper Provo River, Rock Cliff offers camping and a boardwalk. The campgrounds here are walk-in and dogs are not allowed.

Main Attractions

The reservoir at this state park is very popular for boating, watersports and fishing. The park's campground is very nice and fills up quickly. This is a popular place for an afternoon escape or a quick overnight trip.
