If you head to the Heber Valley you have to stop at the Homestead Crater. it's some a unique place to see and bring your bathing suit as it's always sparking warm water! You can even scuba dive!

We love The Homestead and visit often and always hit the crater and summer concert events. The fudge is also really good.

My wife and I just finished our first anniversary and we were so impressed with the staff at the homestead crater. They were incredibly accommodating and very friendly. We can't wait to come back in the winter and soak in the crater again!
