The sprawling waters of Yuba State Park provide a variety of recreation opportunities for visitors. Warm water and sandy beaches lure visitors during summer months. Nearby off-highway vehicle riding areas are accessible right from your camp spot. One of the few state parks with boat-in camping, Yuba is very popular with water recreationists. Two boat ramps, one at Yuba State Park and one at Painted Rocks, provide access for all types of watercraft. The reservoir is a year-round fishery for walleye, perch, catfish, rainbow trout and northern pike. Other activities include camping, hiking, picnicking, rock hounding, bird watching, interpretive and junior ranger programs, mountain biking, and waterfowl hunting in season.

At an elevation of 5,100 feet, Yuba State Park is 25 miles south of Nephi, just off Interstate 15. The reservoir, when full, is 22 miles long and reaches a maximum depth of 80 feet. Yuba Reservoir is the largest of many water impoundments on the Sevier River with a capacity of 250,000 acre-feet of water.

Scipio Town is the closest town to Yuba State Park and visitors will find lodging, food, fuel and an antique shop filled with fun and interesting artifacts. Travelers for more than 145 years have stopped at Scipio Town for refreshments and a breath of fresh air. A stagecoach line between St. Joseph, Missouri and Sacramento, California stopped at the present site. Each passenger was allowed 25 pounds of luggage, and the fare from St. Joseph to Salt Lake City was $150.

Make your camping reservations early, as the spots go fast, especially on weekends and holidays.
