Body of Water

A swimming hole in the Richfield Canal. There are a few rope swings, and the water varies in depth.

Falls Park (Sheep Bridge to the locals) was established by the BLM to accommodate the growing number of people visiting the popular swimming and tubing area of the Virgin River. There is about a mile stretch of river that can be enjoyed, with sandy beaches, fun tubing rapids and even places to jump off the rocks into the river. Be sure to always check the depth of the water before jumping in! Because of the nature of the Virgin River, and its flood cycles, there may be sand and other debris under the water that are not visible. There is fun to be had by all ages at this park.

A great place for fishing, swimming, boating or just hanging out on the beach. There are many private and public beaches around the reservoir, but the most popular free beach is Cemetery Point Beach.

Hobbs pond is a quiet little reservoir nestled in a neighborhood in east Layton, UT. There's a hike around the pond, a rope swing (often gets taken down), fishing, and a great bike path around the perimeter.

Gunlock Reservoir

Boat, fish, and swim on the tranquil waters at Gunlock Reservoir or enjoy an afternoon picnic on the beach.  Warm waters during summer and a mild winter climate make the park a year-round destination.

Adams Reservoir is a reservoir located just 2 miles from Layton, in Davis County, in the state of Utah, United States. Fishermen will find a variety of fish including rainbow trout, carp, bream/bluegill, largemouth bass and catfish here.
