For views and serenity, Deer Creek State Park remains a worthy drive from Salt Lake City or Heber City. The reservoir is surrounded by mountains, in an area known for good water sport options and fall foliage. Dress appropriately for the time of year, and keep in mind that it will get dark quite early in the winter and/or early-spring months. A visit to Deer Creek State Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Heber City day trip tool to plot your vacation.

The first state park site is fine if you have a boat or just want to picnic but there is no shoreline to get on to fish from shore...the 2nd site where the Zipline is...still very little shoreline... more »
Fishing was slow but it sure was beautiful. Lots of facilities. Bathrooms open in the winter. Great bass fishing on the lake casting towards the bank and reeling out wards from a boat. Deer creek has something for everyone. They have a swimming beach. Boat docks. Fishing. Camping. And a short walk away there are also zip lines and a ropes course.
I love deer creek reservoir. It’s beautiful and the water is clean. It’s usually windy so plan accordingly. The Fishing decent but I wish it was better. There are bathrooms and bbq pits in certain areas.
