Starvation State Park
Copyright: - Utah State Parks & Recreation
Starvation State Park
Description - Starvation State Park lies on the banks of Starvation Reservoir at an elevation of 5,700 feet in northeastern Utah. The site is well known for year round fishing, boating and camping. It is split into two developed areas: Mountain View and Lower Beach. Each of these areas is open for overnight use with limited services during the winter.

Attractions - Facilities at this state-administered site include a 54-unit campground, sandy beach, modern rest rooms, showers, group-use area, fish cleaning station and a sewage disposal station. Primitive camping is permitted at designated areas around the reservoir.

Recreation - Starvation Reservoir offers 3,500 acres of year-round fishing and boating fun. Other recreation opportunities within the park include camping, picnicking and swimming.

Climate - Utah, this area is relatively arid. Summers are pleasant with hot days and cool evenings. Spring and fall weather can vary dramatically, so be prepared for a variety of conditions with layers of clothing. Winter can be cold with snow. Much of the precipitation accumulated throughout the year occurs in this season. Dress in warm layers for winter, but bring sunscreen and sunglasses. A brimmed hat is essential in every season due to the high elevation of this site.

Location - Starvation State Park is located four miles northwest of Duchesne, Utah, on U.S. Highway 40.
