Description:

Deer Creek Reservoir is sandwiched between Deer Creek and Wasatch Mountain state parks. Cradled among the stunning peaks of the Heber Valley, Deer Creek Reservoir is a dammed portion of the Provo River.

The Deer Creek Dam was built between the years of 1938 and 1941. With a surface area of nearly 3,000 acres, and a north-south length of roughly eight miles, this is no small lake.

Deer Creek Reservoir has an 8-mile non-motorized path, the Deer Creek Trail, running its length on the hills above its western slopes. With a surface elevation of 5,417 feet, this reservoir provides an extremely pleasant place to run, bike, and fish in the late spring and early fall.
