DescriptionYuba State Park got its name from the individuals who built the dam. Local farmers and ranchers had to build the dam themselves or risk losing their water rights. The men working on the structure called it the U.B. Dam. As they worked they sang a song that stated they were damned if they worked and damned if they didn't. The phonetic sound of the reservoirs name was eventually spelled Yuba.
Visitors with a good eye can sometimes find evidence of the ancient Native Americans that once lived in the area. Rock art, pieces of pottery, and stone tools are among items that have been found around the reservoir. Remnants of mining and ranching that took place in the area are also visible to those with an interest in older cultures. Visitors are allowed to explore the area, but area asked not to disturb or remove any artifacts. Any findings should be reported to Utah State Parks and Recreation.
The Lake is perfect for boating swimming, waterskiing, wind-surfing, picnicking and year-round fishing. Anglers enjoy vying for walleye and yellow perch.
Sequoia Motorsports is the park concessionaire. They offer boat, personal watercraft and off-highway vehicle rentals right at the park. They have also opened a store that offers basic camping and boating supplies. While you are there, enjoy one of their juicy hamburgers and homemade fries! Call them at 801-423-9118 or visit their website at sequoiamotorsports.com.
