"good stop along the way"

The first dam is a small park with picnic tables and grassy area for relaxing. Very peaceful. There is a bathroom which is nice. And ducks/mallards to watch.

I took my preschool class here to feed the ducks. It is a perfect spot. They all sat out on the square docks and threw bread off the edges to the ducks under them. We did this in February! It didn't matter that it was winter and snowy. Bring gloves and hats since the wind blows right down from the... More

Great spot for sunday afternoons to enjoy the warm weather. Take the little ones to see the baby ducks and watch them grow up every week.

This is a fun little park. The reservoir is a great place to do some fishing, low-key canoeing, or feeding the ducks. There is a bathroom facility, pavillions, charcoal grilles, a volleyball area, and lots of grass to enjoy. This is a good place for families or other groups to meet and enjoy a picnic.

First Dam was always one of my favorite places to relax with a few friends. I've canoed, BBQ'd, and fed the ducks at this park. It's not too far from Utah State campus, which makes it a great meeting place for college students. It's also a great meetup point to carpool up to Beaver Mountain or to do other activities... More

This has always been a great park. Not too busy and you can play in the water. I remember growing up going going here and now I take my kids.

If you wanna go to a calm and chill place to make your barbecue, this is a good spot. It is not some of the 7 wonders, but it is a good place to hang out with your friends while you eat a nice hamburger.

The facilities are basic, but on a hot summer weekend, forget about it. The place gets overrun by people. It's too small to really enjoy without feeling like you're packed in like sardines. The parking is a nightmare as well. The ducks and geese are a bit too aggressive if you feed them. You might want to make sure your... More

Great lawn for a quick soccer game and a nap. A nice place to fish. Ducks and geese and even a muskrat provided entertainment. We put in canoes here and had a lovely paddle over the very clear water.
