Jordanelle is the haven of the outdoorsy, the adventurous, and the playful - a spot that bustles with movement during every season, but provides a soulful alternative to resort-town energy. Set between the ski slopes of the Wasatch Mountains and the shores of the beautiful Jordanelle Reservoir in Northern Utah
, the area offers visitors various recreational opportunities to suit all sorts of fancies. For a more laid-back alternative to traditional Deer Valley lodging
, our Jordanelle vacation rentals and neighboring Heber City vacation rentals
may be the perfect choice.
Where is Jordanelle Reservoir?
Jordanelle is only 40 minutes from Salt Lake City
and only 15 minutes from the historic Old Town Park City
, but provides a bit more serenity than staying in these urban areas. Enjoy the shops, restaurants, and wine bars of Park City or the ski slopes at Deer Valley, then return to your own private getaway in the more peaceful Jordanelle area.
Activities in Jordanelle Reservoir
Year-round, you'll find a myriad of choices for how to spend your time here: water sports, alpine sports, spa treatments, fine dining, and lounging in your own private vacation home. When you enjoy our Deer Valley lodging at night and play at the shores of Jordanelle Reservoir during the day, the possibilities are limitless!
In the summer, with a lively state park surrounding the reservoir itself, water sports such as boating, windsurfing, paddle and wakeboarding, and fishing are the most popular past-times here. Hailstone Recreation Area is the largest of the park's two main developments, offering paddle board lessons and rentals, guided fishing trips, and charters.
Red Cliff Recreational Area, the smaller and quieter of the two recreation areas, is also a rich natural area, offering guests with interests in photography, hiking, bird watching, and wildlife viewing a chance to experience Northern Utah's rich riparian ecosystems. The park also hosts the Wasatch Back Quad-Fishalon ice fishing tournament in the winter, two triathlons, and a paddleboard race in the summer.
Jordanelle vacation rentals make a fantastic alternative to slopeside Deer Valley lodging - and guarantee your next Northern Utah escape will be exceptional, memorable, and comfortable. Enjoy the natural beauty of Jordanelle, and play hard!
