The Heber Valley RV Park dates back to the 1940's and is an older park that has kept up with the times including WiFi and 50amp service. Most sites are full hookups but some are not with only AC and water. The sites are mostly gravel and fairly level. Most sites have a grassy area with firepit and pick-nik table. There were several families living in the park full time but there were still many places open for visting RVs.

The park is in an interesting location. It was once a fish camp on the Provo river and specialized in fly fishing accomodations. The river was damed several years ago and the park now sits directly behind the Jordanelle Lake earthen dam. The river still flows from under the dam and still boast 5000 trout per mile of river.

The RV part also has some unique "cabin" called Yurts. We looked inside one. It is a round structure that houses a queen size bed, full bath, small kitchenette and small table for two. They were very nicely appointed and looked very livable. The bed is located in the center to the circular building and there is a large round skylight right above the bed.

There is also an older quadra-plex where 4 cabins are all housed in the same building. Each one is a single bedroom with full bath. They are older and more rustic.

The area is surrounded by mountains and is bounded by a stream at the rear of the park. The main road into the park is off the main track and is used mostly by RVers or fishermen. The Provo river is just across the road. There are many trails along the river for access for fly fishing or for just waking or bike riding.

We were just there this past weekend and it was in the mid 20's at night with daytime highs in the 50s. This week it will be much warmer. The elevation of the park is about 5200 feet so they do get a fair amount of snow. The park is open year round which is unusual in this part of the country.

We plan on going again later this summer and maybe in the fall for a bit longer.

Here is the website for the park.
