If you’ve never tried paddle boarding, plan a day at Deer Valley Pebble Beach. This small pond boasts calm waters, sandy beaches for lounging, and nearby eateries. You’ll also find Park City SUP on-site, offering top-of-the-line boards and paddles for rent. In addition to equipment rentals, they also offer classes, a summer camp for kids, and even paddle board yoga!

This natural hot spring’s temperature is between 90 and 96 degrees, making it perfect for a quick dip after stretching your muscles during your yoga session. The best part? The paddle boards are provided, so you don’t have to worry about bringing your own.

Exciting River & Lake Paddle Board Excursions

Park City delivers a wealth of waterways ideal for summer fun, including stand-up paddle boarding. 

Jordanelle Reservoir is fed by the Provo River and offers three options for paddle board recreation: Hailstone, Ross Creek, and Rock Cliff. Plus, Hailstone has a full-service marina where you can rent all your essential equipment.

Mirror Lake, Weber River, and Lower Provo River offer excellent waters for SUPing if you don’t mind bringing your own paddle board. 

Getting Ready: Packing for Your SUP Adventure

Part of a great paddleboard adventure is being ready for the elements. While our weather in Park City is great, you’ll want to ensure you are prepared for the sun and temperature changes. 

In addition to your board, paddle, and life vest, you’ll want to have a few other essentials on hand.

  • Proper Clothing: Rashguards, wetsuits, or comfortable bathing suits are must-haves. Also, don’t forget waterproof shoes or sandals.

  • Sunblock: Park City's sunshine is strong, so avoid sunburns by packing waterproof sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat. Remember to reapply sunscreen after getting wet.

  • Safety Gear: A first-aid kit, whistle, compass, and headlamps are great to have handy in case of injury.

If you need to re-up on your water-related supplies, visit Jans, our local outdoor sports store. They’ll have everything you need and more! Also, don’t forget to download our paddle board checklist for a more comprehensive list of items to pack.
