Deer Creek State Park is another one of the Utah state parks established as man-made water playgrounds. Boat, fish or windsurf these relatively warm mountain waters. And great camping is available at any one of several campgrounds.
The park is located near the towns of Heber and Midway as well as Wasatch Mountain State Park. Enjoy spectacular views of towering Mount Timpanogos. And one of the most stunning mountain views on the planet.
The people who originally settled this valley were of Swiss descent. When you see where they settled, you’ll know why they felt right at home.
Because Deer Creek is almost entirely made up of a lake, the emphasis here is on water-related recreation. Boating, fishing, and swimming.
The hills and mountains around the lake abound with wildlife. And you can enjoy some of the best fly-fishing in the world on the Provo River. It flows in and out of Deer Creek.
Deer Creek is located near Midway and Heber in the southeast corner of the Heber Valley. It is a half-hour up Provo Canyon from Provo. And less than an hour southeast of Salt Lake City heading up I-80.
