Deer Creek State Park, Utah
Traveling along, and rather than going through busy Salt Lake City today,we took the Provo Canyon Scenic Byway and made a stop at Deer Creek State Park, Utah.There are a number of campgrounds within Deer Creek State Park, however we stayed at the Chokecherry campground. Services are limited at this time of year, but electric was available for us, and we had internet/ cell service however it was limited.
We stayed along the lower level of the campground, which is built on a hill, with a few levels. We were down near the lake as close as we could be with our RV. Very quiet this time of year, alot of available spots to choose from. Shade structures are available at each site with picnic tables, fire rings and grills.
The scenery is wonderful, with Snows Hill beside us to the north and Mount Timpanogos to the west.
A reservoir also is at the base of the campground, available for boating, fishing, and other water sports.
Plenty of birds in the area, small animals such as chipmunks, gophers, and even saw deer on Snows Hill.
During our visit to the park we were paid a visit by a state park ranger who is very knowledgeable of the park and surrounding area. He even told us that fishing rods and life jackets are available for lend outs at the office. The lake contains many fish species but a license to fish is still required.
A nice place to come and relax.
