Deer Creek Reservoir is just up the road from Provo and is a pretty great body of water. The views from the shore are spectacular with Mount Timpanogos towering over the northwest shoreline and Park City to the northeast. The water was pretty temperate. When we got there, we saw one of the giant inflatable obstacle courses like we did in Mexico, so we sent the older kids off to do that and got the rest of the kayaks and paddle boards set up. We also rented a jet ski, which was a lot of fun. We only crashed it once, but it was a lot of fun for Mike to go flying in the air with the girls and pretend they were seagulls. Madeline loved the Jet Ski and went out multiple times. We would have people paddle board out, trade out for the person on the jet ski and go off into the lake. It’s crazy how fast those things go and just so much fun. No wonder people like going to the lake!
