General Information

Description - East Canyon State Park is a 680-acre boating and year-round fishing delight nestled in the mountains northeast of Salt Lake City. Anglers fish for rainbow trout and smallmouth bass. Although popular with water recreationists, East Canyon is also an attraction for history buffs. Nearby trails mark the steps of the Donner Party and the first Mormon settlers.

Attractions - The reservoir has a 680-acre surface area and is situated in an open setting at an elevation of 5,700-feet. Preferred activities include boating, day use, and camping.

Recreation - The managed recreation season all year with high use occurring in the summer. Limited use during winter when ice fishing is popular. Preferred activities include boating, day use, and camping. Available species include rainbow, cutthroat, and brown trout. Access from all-weather State Rd. 65 and State Rd. 66. Reservations accepted for some campsites. Fees charged. The East Canyon U.S. Geological Service map covers the area.

Climate - The climate of Utah varies with the terrain. Visitors to the mountains will experience cool summer nights and passing storms that can alter a sunny day very quickly. Be prepared with layers when recreating in the mountains. The deserts and canyons of Utah can be dangerous places. Summer temperatures often reach above 100 degrees F, so be sure to carry water on all adventures. Flash floods in the canyons are also a threat. It is difficult to predict incoming weather when deep within a canyon so check reports before venturing into any narrow canyon areas.

Location - East Canyon Reservoir is located in East Canyon State Park 12 miles south of Morgan, Utah. This site is southeast of Salt Lake City.
