Utah Lake State Park

Spanning an area of 148.4 square miles, Utah Lake is the largest freshwater lake in the state and one of the largest in the west. All of that water means a whole lot of fun for fans of fishing, kayaking, boating and power sports.

Once out on the lake, anglers have their hands – and lines – full, and have access to catfish, walleye, white bass, black bass, and several species of panfish.

The lake is also a large draw to those looking to have a bit more action-packed fun out on the water. With such a large space, there is plenty of room for those wanting to kayak, jet ski, tube or even paddle board.
