Nice little reservoir. Gets very crowded on a Saturday in June, so a little choppy for kayaking. No dogs allowed.

Rocky beach, but clear, warm water to play in by the picnic tables and shade. No swimmers itch here, like Sand Hollow and way less crowded. We enjoyed renting paddle boards from Dig Paddle Sports and exploring the lake. Great for families.

Beautiful, fairly small, but full of nice bass and trout in a gorgeous setting. Year round enjoyment for the whole family. Quieter than nearby Sand Hollow Reservoir but plenty of perks to make up for it. Many unusual birds frequent the area like cormorants, eagles,...More

Fun to see the reservoir in the desert. Although not huge, it was interesting to explore. Didn't have time to try fishing, but will next time. Nice facilities with paddle board and kayak rentals.

Like Sand Hallow, Quail Creek is a frequently visited spot. It is beautiful, the fishing is great and water sports are encouraged. They offer camping for over night stays. It is easily accessible as well.

Visited off-season so not much going on. Nice large reservoir that is open for water sports, a small supply store on the premises and great scenery all around

Call DIG Paddle at Quail Creek - not sure they rent boats, but they will know who you can rent from.

I am sorry but I do not know. A quick call to the UT State Parks, on line, should give you the answer.
