August is here, which means warm temps and the dog days of summer. We’ve got a lot of desert here in Utah, but the truth is we have quite a bit of water, especially after the killer winter we had. Reservoirs, rivers and mountain lakes are full to the brim and are prime for a little late-summer cool down. Whether you’re an avid boater, fly fisherman or just want a natural lazy river, we’ve put together our local’s guide for top spots to cool it down, water style.

1. Lake Powell
Split between two states, Lake Powell has 2,000 miles of shoreline with dramatic scenery. Red rocks, winding canyons and turquoise blue water all await for camping, house boating, paddle boarding and beyond. Our pick: Lake Powell is all about the house boat. Grab a group, rent a boat and enjoy your house on the water.

2. Weber River
Think of this pick as a lazy river on steroids. Some hot days call for a mellow float with your friends and family. Grab a tube, some friends and plenty of sunscreen and float through a few miles of the Weber River (Croydon to Henefer). If you’d prefer to float with some pros, there are plenty of outfitters that will supply your tube, life jacket and handle all the shuttling back and forth to your car.

3. Lily Lake
If peace and tranquility are on your to-dos, then head up Mirror Lake Highway to Lily Lake. No motorboats are allowed up at Lily Lake so this spot is perfect for stand up paddle boards, kayaks or canoes. You’re up there in elevation, so best to be prepared with a coat and some bug repellent as temperatures can change quickly.

4. Jordanelle Reservoir
This one is for you east-coasters out there. Just outside of Park City you’ll find the Jordanelle. With consistent winds, the Jordanelle is the perfect spot to spend a day setting sail while enjoying direct views of Deer Valley Resort. Groups such as Park City Sailing offer camps, corporate events and weekly women’s only sailing classes.
