Otter Creek State Park, UT

Max reservation window: Wed Oct 09 2013
DescriptionOtter Creek State Park is a perfect destination for ATVers, boaters, and birders. The park is a quiet, out-of-the-way respite located in south central Utah.
In the fall of 1897, construction began on one of the oldest dam projects in Utah, creating what is now Otter Creek Reservoir. Local Mormons in the area needed a source of irrigation water for farming in the area where they had chosen to live. Many of the farmers had experience with building irrigation canals, but knew nothing about constructing a dam. After applying for water rights, members of the Otter Creek Reservoir Company were denied the financial assistance they needed to take on the project.
Year-round fishing and boating on the 3,120-acre reservoir are the park's featured activities along with convenient access to three ATV trails, including the popular Paiute ATV Trail. During the spring and fall, many types of birds pass through Otter Creek on their journey along the Pacific Migratory Bird Flyway.
The campground is located on the eastern shore of the reservoir.
