Gunlock State ParkWay out in southwestern Utah, this state park includes much of the Gunlock Reservoir, meaning there's ample opportunity here for boating, water sports, and fishing for bass and catfish. Its relatively low elevation and southerly location keep temperatures mild throughout the winter, making it a great all-year destination. The spillway from the dam sends the overflow cascading down a series of red rocks, where visitors often gather around the rushing water in search of natural waterslides. Just be sure to bring a change of dry clothes.
