DUCHESNE COUNTY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) - Starvation State Park won’t leave you hungry for adventure. It’s one of the few parks in the state, you can take your ATV right up to the bank and hit the water.
“I think it's just a little hidden gem in Utah, you kind of have to find it, but it's a great place as you can see,” said Alyssa Wight, beach goer.
“It's nice and clean, we like it because of the area. It always has fish. Everything's good,” said Wight.
If you’re starving for a dose of sunshine, a sandy beach, a huge reservoir and some waterfront camping Duchesne County has you covered.
“I love the scenery, the Uinta mountains in the back ground, nice clean water, fantastic fishing and endless opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts,” said Ranger Alan Spencer, Park Manager.
Ranger Spencer has been here for 20 years and say starvation is a destination. It boasts some of the cleanest water in the state on its 3,400 surface acre reservoir. From primitive sites to one the 74 campsites with hook ups, Starvation keeps you satisfied.
Camping cabins can make that roughing it not so rough and those OHV change up the meaning of door-to-door service.
You can ride your ATV while you camp and the next minute you can be on the water boating, so a very unique experience.
Utahns have been enjoying the park since 1972 and Starvation is blazing trails for the park system allowing visitors to take aim at some excitement when not on the water.
“We were the first state park in the state of Utah to get a 3D archery course and it has 30 3D targets that you can shoot at and so far, it's been a great hit for people,” said Spencer.
It’s as crystal clear as the water, a taste of Starvation State Park is what your family needs this summer?
“A great spot to come out and not just spend one day but spend three or four days, a whole weekend, and really get a taste of what we have,” said Spencer.
