Take to the outdoors and explore this gorgeous mountain town by renting one of our all-inclusive Oakley vacation rentals. Bursting with year-round activities, a getaway here is bound to be filled with a lot of firsts and the making of long-lasting memories with loved ones.
Tucked near the Wasatch National Forest and the Weber River, Oakley offers an intimate and private space to spend quality time with travel companions in the midst of thick forests and grassy meadows. Oakley is set five miles north of Kamas, and just 45 miles east of booming Salt Lake City. Escaping the heat of summer in the valley is a must! And don't miss out on a snowy vacation here either, as mountain meccas like Park City and Brighton are a mere 17 miles away.
One of the best times to visit Oakley is during the PRCA Rodeo and Independence Day Celebration each summer. Enjoy delicious food and watch (or participate!) as cowboys and cowgirls display their courage and proficiency in roping and riding stunts. After seeing the amazing talent on horseback, you may want to try horseback riding yourself! Boulder Mountain Ranch is a great place to start as they offer trail rides and easy sunset rides on well-trained horses.
Beaver Creek and Crooked Creek weave through town and draw fishermen in to catch all kinds of trout, catfish, and more. Oakley is well-known for its world-class fly fishing. If you're new to the sport, head to Provo River Guide Services to learn the name of the game.
Rockport Reservoir is just north, and Jordanelle Reservoir is southeast a few miles, both of which are great spots to spend all day playing in the water, fishing, and hiking.
Although it's no secret a summer getaway to one of our Oakley vacation rentals will leave you speechless, don't discount a magical winter getaway either. Acres of snow-covered terrain means snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling are in your near future. And seeing as Oakley is untouched by residential ski lifts, now is your chance to try Snow Cat skiing! And after a day of heart-pumping downhill runs, relax the next day by booking a dog sled ride at North Forty Escapes, or a horse-drawn sleigh ride at Boulder Mountain Ranch.
Although most of our Oakley lodging come with fully stocked kitchens, don't miss out on nearby dining establishments! Try Oakley Polar King's delicious burgers and snow cones, or visit the famous Road Island Diner for made-from-scratch food in a classic diner trailer.
