Otter Creek, South Point Recreation Site

Otter Creek has an activity for almost everyone. The cold, clear water of this large reservoir offers year-round fishing for rainbow trout. For wildlife watchers, numerous waterfowl, raptors, deer, antelope, and elk abound. If you’re an ATV rider, you’ll want to try the Paiute ATV trail, which can be accessed from here. The primary activities include fishing and boating - although the site also serves as a regional staging area for extended and day trips into the surrounding National Forest, Utah State Lands and BLM managed lands by horse, foot, and vehicle. The Richfield Field Office manages day use facilities, dispersed and primitive camping facilities, and fishing access to the Reservoir at Fisherman's Beach, Tamarisk Point, and South Point along the west side of the reservoir. There is no potable water, but picnic tables and pit toilets are available. Otter Creek Reservoir is located at the southeastern corner of Paiute County near the town of Antimony. A Utah State Park is located at the south end and provides well developed facilities. The Richfield BLM maintains several semi-primitive sites along the west side of the lake. Dispersed-use is available on the east side of the reservoir. The landscape consists of a sagebrush-steppe ecosystem. The Parker Mountains are located to the east, Monroe Mountain and Kingston Canyon to the west of the lake, and the Sevier Plateau to the southwest.
