While Utah Lake in Utah County, Utah (Utah to the 3rd power) is a fun place for summer and autumn boating activities, in the winter, it becomes a wonderland of ice. Iceland too far away? Look no further than the ice formations on the shores of Utah lake. Photographers will have a great time capturing unique winter images, along with a sense of absolute silence looking across a vast wintry landscape. Anglers need not be not discouraged as ice fishing is also allowed, and is uncrowded.
Utah Lake has multiple access points, though the American Fork and Provo boat harbors are generally the best places to view ice formations. American Fork harbor is privately owned, but access is open and free during the winter. Provo boat harbor is a State Park, and will cost $10, or a Utah State Park pass to access - though for a stellar sunset against some incredible and unique ice formations, it's worth it.
