The warm weather is quickly cooling down here in Utah. But don’t worry—Heber Valley has many activities on-hand to help you close out the season with lots of family fun. If you’re in the Utah area or simply looking for a quick getaway before the cold arrives, consider these places and activities as they are the perfect fit for the whole family.
Jordanelle State Park and Deer Creek Island Resort
Located above Heber Valley, Jordanelle Reservoir is the perfect destination for the whole family. Within the Jordanelle State Park, the activities are endless! Make memories with your family with picnics, camping, boating, fishing, and hiking and much more!
In addition to Jordanelle Reservoir, Deer Creek Island Resort sits on the South West end of Heber Valley and has gorgeous views of the famous Mt. Timpanogos. At either resort, you can rent a WaveRunner and cruise along the waters, go out kayaking or do some boating and catch some fresh fish. There are even wakeboard clinics so you, or your family can experience something new!
Pool for Back-to-School
After all the fun is done, you can come back to the Homestead Resort, take a dip or splash in the serene set of hot tubs and swimming pools.
With back-to-school season in full swing, the pool will be a bit quieter so you can indulge in some relaxation. The hot tubs are filled with warm mineral water perfect for recovering after an adventurous day. There’s also an outdoor pool located next to the main building, nestled among mature trees and beautiful mountain scenery.
If you are looking to take your family adventure in the mountains, Lofty Peaks is the go-to spot to get the best ATV rentals in Utah.
You can head out to Wasatch Mountain Park for easy access to great trail riding. There are many open spaces, winding paths, and rugged mountain terrain to suit what you are looking for.
Mirror Lake Highway
Mirror Lake Highway is well-known for its scenic viewpoints, picnic areas, numerous lakes, and lush campgrounds.
This high-mountain byway parallels the Provo River, climbing to an elevation of almost 11,000 feet before descending past Mirror Lake, then River Ranger Station. You can camp, fish, hike, and ride ATVs at this Heber Valley destination too!
