This is a fantastic spot to go in the winter. Not only is it more beautiful (IMO) in the winter, but it gets loads of snow for snow sports, and it is right next to Powder Mountain and Snow Basin! Huntsville, which is a ten minute drive away also has an awesome field that they turn into a skating rink, which is really fun for ice hockey and normal ice skating. Great centralized location. The lake will freeze over enough to walk on or fish on. There were plenty of people ice fishing when we went.
Beautiful lake, nice beaches, but only if you go in the late summer or fall. Spring runoff makes this lake rise significantly, which completely submerged the beach we were playing on (just North of Port Ramp Marina). If you hit the season right, it won't be too busy and you'll have very long extended beaches to play on!
