Activities in Park City
Sunday June 20, 2021 is around the corner and we’ve compiled a list of activities in Park City for all kinds of dads to make a truly epic Father’s Day this year. Besides the usual Father’s Day gift and Father’s Day card, surprise Dad with something he will truly appreciate, the gift of time spent with family doing what he loves and making memories.


The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest is one of the 12 National Forests in the Intermountain Region as well as one of the urban National Forests in the Forest Service System. It covers an area that includes northern and north-central Utah, and southwestern Wyoming.

Just an hour’s drive from Park City, Strawberry Bay is long known as Utah’s premier fishing and boating paradise. Nestled high in the Uinta National Forest of the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, Strawberry Reservoir combines convenience and year-round accessibility.

Heading east from Kamas through the national forest, Mirror Lake Highway is one of the most popular mountain routes in the state. The road winds through farm and ranch lands and rises to heavily forested, mountain terrain, accented by meadows and rugged peaks. There are numerous access points into the High Uinta Wilderness along this byway.


The best-liked sandwich (peanut butter and jelly, chicken salad, tuna fish, ALT) is the first choice when you think about having a picnic, whatever is your family favorite is always a great quick meal. You can also make it a wrap or easy breakfast burritos.
Don’t forget to add some veggies like carrots, cucumbers, radishes and cauliflowers to dip in your choice’s hummus or dip.
An easy sweet dessert can be chocolate chip cookies, fresh muffins or blueberry-lemon pie bars!
And don’t forget to bring water, the weather is really nice in our mountains but Utah is known for its dry air, stay safe! You will also need a cooler full of ice, to keep all your snacks and drinks refrigerated and ready to go.

Our Concierge Team will be happy to help, they can provide you with different options for your Sunday’s picnic and do everything for you. For more information contact them at concierge@abodeluxuryrentals.com.


There are well over 1,000 natural lakes in the Uintas and more than 500 of them support populations of game fish. There are also over 400 miles of streams. Queant Lake, Mirror Lake and Fish lake are our favorites, where you will be able to find brook, cutthroat and rainbow trout, and also arctic grayling in Fish Lake.

Strawberry Reservoir is Utah’s best and people’s choice trout fishery. Why? It might have something to do with consistently good action for large rainbow & cutthroat trout and kokanee salmon; rainbows and cutts up to 24 inches are caught regularly; and larger fish show up occasionally.

The current regulations limit 4 fish statewide Trout/Grayling (in the aggregate). No more than 2 can be cutthroat trout under 15 inches, no more than 1 can be a cutthroat trout over 22 inches and all cutthroat trout from 15 to 22 inches must be immediately released. Please, release all cutts because they are needed to eat those fierce non-game fish. For official rules and how to get your fishing license click here!

Either if dad is an expert in fly fishing or not, you can book him some fly casting lessons to improve his technique or a fishing tour.  Our Concierge Team will put together a unique experience just for you!

Though primarily known for its excellent fishing, Strawberry Reservoir is also an ideal boating destination near Heber Valley. There are four marinas (•Strawberry Bay Marina, Renegade, Soldier Creek Marina and Aspen) with their boat ramps that each feature boat rentals and gasoline access. Water temperatures tend to be on the cool side, but water skiers, wakeboarders and personal watercraft operators love this mountain reservoir.

Deer Creek is a medium-sized reservoir located in Heber Valley, just a short drive from Park City. The reservoir is a popular recreation spot because it is scenic and offers ideal conditions for boating, wakeboarding, water skiing and more.
