Yuba State Park RV & Campground Guide


Some say that Yuba State Park looks like Aruba with its amazingly blue waters. However, this state park is located in central Utah, about 18 miles south of Levan, 50 miles west of Ephraim, and 55 miles east of Leamington. Many people flock to this park’s reservoir to go boating and play on its shores. Others come here for the outstanding fishing from the shore. This state park that opened in 1971 is one of the few to have two zip lines, which allows you to see the region's immense beauty from a different vantage point. Get away from life’s hustle by staying at Yuba's campgrounds.
