Jordanelle State Park
Utah is a massive state, and it contains dozens of breathtaking parks for outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy. Jordanelle State Park is a rather unique one, thanks to its convenient location. It offers incredible scenery with views of Heber Valley and the Wasatch Front.
The park is broken down into three sections: Rock Cliff, Hailstone, and Ross Creek. Each provides its own experience for boaters.
Hailstone is open to both motorized and non-motorized vessels within a certain size limit. It also allows jet skis, water runners, and other small water devices. Courtesy docks run from May – October. This is the most developed part of the park, and it is available up until the reservoir freezes over every year.
Rock Cliff and Rock Creek are both non-motorized areas. They are perfect for kayaks, canoes, and small manual boats. They are known for their more secluded charms. Many visitors come to Jordanelle to get away from it all, and do a little fishing. Rock Cliff and Rock Creek have not been developed to the extent of Hailstone.
