The Mona Rope Swings are the major features of the Burraston Ponds. There's crystal clear water. It's pretty much paradise. "The ponds are fed by springs and sometimes vary in number depending on water level. The clear waters are even occasion- ally used by SCUBA divers. Rope swings are often found along the shore. Burraston Ponds was the campsite of the Escalante Expedition, 27 September 1776, from Santa Fe to the Utah Basin. Father Escalante mapped this area and named this spring “Ojo de San Pablo” or Eye of Saint Paul. The great Indian chiefs before and during the Walker and Black Hawk Indian Wars used this camp- site as a meeting place. Burraston Ponds are south of Mona, UT—about a 90-minute drive from Davis County. Head south on I-15. Take the Mona exit (#233) off I-15 and head west. Turn left onto Main Street and head south for 1.8 miles. There isn’t a good sign at the turn. There is an old faded sign facing east just past the turn off that you would probably miss. But head west a half a mile on this road and cross over the railroad tracks." - Utah Scouts The pond is heavily stocked with catchable rainbow trout. Try using traditional lures and baits (for example, Jake's spinners and worms). You may have more success if you tip your lures with a nightcrawler or PowerBait. Be aware of the youth fishing classes held on Thursday nights throughout the summer months. There's a new restroom open and available for use.
