Information on Steinaker boat rentals and watercraft services at this State Park in Utah. Come and fish for rainbow trout and largemouth bass, and enjoy sandy beaches, camp, swim, boat, jet ski, and waterski at Steinaker Reservoir. There is one launch ramp at this lake. Reserve a campsite overlooking the water and under the skies of Dinosaur land.
Steinaker Reservoir is primarily a water storage facility. A canal from a diversion dam on Ashley Creek several miles to the west supplies the reservoir. Water sports are just a secondary use for the State Park. One of the first units to be constructed in the vast Central Utah Project, Steinaker Reservoir stores runoff water from Ashley Creek to provide irrigation water to the Ashley Valley.
In addition to its obvious attractions for boating and waverunners, Steinaker State Park is located in a region well known to geologists, historians and collectors of artifacts which is fun for all ages and families. Fossilized relics once found in ancient seas such as oysters, clams, and other shellfish are found here. Steinaker’s convenient location makes it a popular base for exploring the many attractions of Dinorsaurland in northeast Utah or the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area to the north.
