Utah’s Yuba State Park has warm water and sandy beaches. And it’s one of the few Utah state parks with boat-in camping.
With both primitive and developed camping along with relatively easy access, it’s a great place for people who love water.
Yuba is a year-round fishing spot for walleye, perch, catfish, rainbow trout and northern pike. It offers plenty of space for hiking, picnicking, bird watching, and mountain biking.
Yuba has recently become a hot spot for northern pike fishing. Big ones. Some in excess of 40". An awesome experience to pull a fish like that in.
The park concessionaire provides rentals of boat, personal watercraft and off-highway vehicles. They also offer camping and boating supplies at their store.
Yuba Is Divided Into
Five Recreation Areas
Oasis campground is a developed campground. With 28 individual campsites for tents and RV's. There’s also a group campsite with pavilion for groups up to 75 people. You’ll find:
North Beach is a primitive camping area. But with the above-mentioned sandy beaches. And camping and day use allowed right at the water’s edge. You’ll find picnic tables and metal fire rings here also.
West Beach is also a primitive camping area. With sandy and gravel beaches. Camping and day use is permitted at the water’s edge here also. Picnic tables and metal fire rings are found here also.
