Right next door to the Little Valley Country Store is Mantua Reservoir! It's a beautiful reservoir that's normally a good place to go swimming. Except this time of the year the water has been sitting a while and now people are told not to go swimming because of swimmer's itch. We've gone plenty of times previously and never had a problem.
We didn't really notice the signs UNTIL after everyone had been playing in the water. Be sure to check those before swimming.
We washed right off quickly and luckily, no on had drank any of the water. We're happy to report no one had any swimmer's itch after this.
The kids still had lots of fun. There was a cool breeze and just enough shade for us to sit an enjoy the view.
We even brought bikes and scooters, just so the kids could ride along the dike!
While you can't swim right now, there's still plenty to do! Walk the shores or ride your bike, it's a beautiful place! Thanks to Box Elder County for sponsoring this post!
