About

Jordanelle State Park is situated on the east side of the 12,000 foot high Wasatch Mountain range. Nearby communities include Park City, Midway, and Heber City although the hills and mountains that surround mitigate the impact of artificial light generated by these communities. The total land and water area of the park is 6,704 acres. Visitors come to boat, fish, camp, picnic, watch wildlife, hike, and stargaze. The Nature Area harbors Jordanelle State Park’s darkest skies. The park has hosted dark sky events for over a decade.
