Recently named one of America's 21st Century Parks, Utah Lake State Park provides many recreation opportunities for visitors. Utah Lake is the state's largest freshwater lake, and is a popular fishing spot. Anglers will find channel catfish, walleye, white bass, black bass and several species of panfish.
In addition, Utah Lake State Park provides major access to the 96,000-acre lake for power boating, sailing, canoeing or kayaking, paddle boarding and jet skiing and a swimming beach. Facilities for picnicking, day-use and overnight camping are also available.
There is also a wonderful visitors center that has a display of mounted fish, American Indian arrowheads and grinding stones, dozens of historic photos, a 1890's swimming suit, and a 1950's fishing net. Experience a fun time and see a small piece of history.
