This is a great little lake with rentals available for adding to your adventure. Parking and day use is easy access. It's not too cold, even in Oct. folks were still paddle boarding and sailing.

Deer Creek is a good reservoir. It has three parks along the shores, each nice. The lake itself is usually quite calm in the morning, a little rougher in the afternoon. Good for boating, fishing, kayaking and sail boarding.

If you have a boat and like to fish or other water sports, it's a great place to go during the week. On the weekends or holidays, it's insanely over crowded. Same applies for shore fishing or using the picnic areas. Go during the week....More

Drove up to Heber City area to enjoy the views and the wildlife. Saw historic buildings, sand hill cranes, ospreys, and Mount Timpanogos. Love all the spring flowers. Worth the time and the drive.
