Things to do in Heber Valley

  • Updated

Heber Valley is just a short drive away from both Utah and Salt Lake Counties, and it is full of fun family activities. We spent a week exploring Heber City and Midway and were amazed at all the things to do in Heber Valley. Here are some of the great spots we adventured, and we can’t wait to try more. Share any favorites that we missed in the comments.

State Parks

Wasatch County is home to three Utah State Parks. We have enjoyed visiting all three. Deer Creek and Jordanelle are mainly water-based, and Wasatch Mountain has just about everything. More details on their individual posts.
