This park is used heavily by fishermen and ATV enthusiasts. It offers a quiet, developed campground with modern restrooms, along with developed boat launch. The park is also a popular spot for hunters to make a base camp as they search for deer and elk in nearby mountains.
Otter Creek Reservoir is one of Utah's best trout fisheries. The state park offers a very nice campground and boat launching. Popular ATV trails run near the reservoir and other trails wind through nearby mountains.
