Several small reservoirs in this area offer boating, fishing, swimming and more. These include, Mona Reservoir which is visible from I-15 at Mona; Piute Reservoir south of Marysvale; Yuba Reservoir south of Nephi, and Palisade Lake and Gunnison Reservoir west of Sterling. Many of these locations are state parks, and have camping and other amenities.
The Sevier River, near Big Rock Candy Mountain Resort and the town of Marysvale, is excellent for one-hour (or longer) trips in kayaks or rafts, particularly when high water conditions exist to stir up the rapids. Rentals and guide service are available during the summer months.
