Summit & Surrounds: 4 Cool Places to Be in the Heat of Summer


Life at Summit Creek is guided by the seasons. Winter brings fluffy snow that covers the mountains. Fall brings sweeping views of changing leaves. Summer brings the sunshine that calls you outside to enjoy the fresh water and extended hours of sunshine. While any time of year is a perfect time to live at Summit Creek, we’ve been truly enjoying these summer months. Here’s how we disconnect from the Internet, get out of the comforts of our A.C., and stay cool in nature.

Dip in the Pool at Summit Springs

The newest amenity addition to Summit Creek is our pool complex, Summit Springs. Here, you’ll find a vast resort area complete with everything you need to cool off during hot summer days. Complete with a lap pool and jacuzzi, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. One of the best features of this new amenity is the sweeping views of the mountains from the pool. Float around or swim a few laps amongst the lush landscape that spans miles and miles.

Wade Around or Fly Fish at the Provo River

The Provo River is a premier blue ribbon trout fishery nearby Summit Creek. The river makes for the perfect summer playground. Catch and release alongside some of the best fly fishers in the state, set up a tent for the weekend and enjoy access to the river at any time, or grab a few friends and head down the river in a rafting experience that will put your endurance to the test—the possibilities are endless.

Explore Utah Lake

Just 20 minutes away from Summit Creek lies Utah Lake, one of the most serene places in the state. Spanning over 95,000 acres, Utah Lake has an endless number of things to do. If you love to hike and explore nature, visit Utah Lake State Park for views and trails that make most hike-lovers’ bucket lists. If you want to have a relaxing view of the lake, you can rent a boat and tour around the expansive lake at your leisure, or enjoy water sports like tubing, wakeboarding, and waterskiing. Utah Lake is full of opportunities for the whole family.

Picnic in Your Very Own Backcountry

Nothing is better than an evening picnic during the summer. With long days and cool nights, a picnic is a perfect way to celebrate the end of a successful summer day. Right in our backyard, we have some of the most serene picnic grounds. Lie under the pines and watch the sun set over the mountains while sipping on your favorite beverage and nibbling on summertime snacks. Bring the whole family out to enjoy the community trails that boast year-round greenery for games and activities that go well into the night.
