Rented waverunners in Heber and came here for an afternoon. The loading dock is a little small but not bad. The views are absolutely breathtaking and the water was pretty warm. 68 degrees! The water was pretty calm even though some say it can be choppy in the afternoon. Will return for sure!

Nice and fairly easy but long (7+ miles) trail along the reservoir. We started from the south end and hiked about 1/3 of the way and turned back due to weather concern. We spent time watching the raptors and other birds while resting at one of the lookout.

Covered in ice in winter and ideal for water activities in summer. There is a large recreational area with ample picnic benches. A facility is available for storing water craft.

We camped here for one night while we were on the road. We stayed in the Chokecherry section at site #33. I wish there had been more shade and/or privacy, but it was still a nice spot. They have built in coverings for very nice aluminum picnic tables. Plenty of room for our tent. In the morning, 4 deer came... More

It is a little cold and sometimes choppy for wakeboarding or skiing unless you go in the morning or evening. Often better for tubes in afternoon.

We went up there for the week with my kids and had such a great time. We are from Washington and found wonderful weather with great water temperature. The people were friendly and very accommodating. My kids loved it and wish the trip was longer!
