The river begins at the Uinta Mountains and flows into Utah Lake. It is fed by several tributaries, including the Weber River and the Duchesne River.

These reservoirs help to regulate the water flow and provide water for agricultural and recreational purposes. The Provo River is a popular destination for fishing, rafting, and camping, with several state parks and recreation areas located along its banks.
