  • Worth the 1 hour drive from Salt Lake City if you have not visited before. It gets dark by 530ish (Feb) so plan accordingly.  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.
  • My favorite lake! It’s fun beach shore line makes a great place to hangout and have a picnic or their rentals from jetski’s to paddle boards make for an adventure! The water is a tad murky but you expect that of any lake! We love deer creek!!
  • Gorgeous scenery. I grew up here as a child camping, fishing, and hunting. It is one of my favorite places on earth.
  • I love how they make you feel like your on the polar Express. My cousins and I had a really fun time on the train.
