Greetings visitors and residents! As mayor, and on behalf of the City Council, I would like to thank you for visiting the official website of Delta City, Utah.
To our visitors, we are very pleased you have taken time to explore our community through the Internet, hopefully followed by your actual trek to our locale! Upon your arrival here, you will discover that our City, neighboring the wide-open expanses of public-use land, make this central part of Utah an awesome vacation destination regardless of the length of your stay. We think that you will agree with the tagline on our City website, that the we are a place of "Exploration, Recreation, Open Spaces and Friendly People."
You ask how to actually get here? If southbound on Interstate 15 exit at Nephi, and if northbound take exit 174 through Holden. You can also come by several other intersecting state highways or even from neighboring Nevada by traveling eastward approximately ninety miles. For those of you who seek technical information, we are at 4,639’ feet above sea level, with global positioning satellite (GPS) coordinates of 39.3531° N and 112.5736° W, geographically located in the northeastern region of Millard County in west central Utah. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, there were 3,436 people estimated to be living in the approximately 3.5 miles area of land mass that makes up Delta City proper.
We are fortunate to have a relatively diverse mix of businesses and merchants that are poised to meet nearly every need. Be prepared to be greeted with a smile and offered a hand-shake at every turn. You will find most commodities and services without the hassle associated with major metropolitan areas.

The City also boasts a top notch County-owned care and rehabilitation center, an IHC hospital and many caring physicians. Our community also has an RV park on Delta’s west side. The City also has an RV sewage dump station provided as a courtesy to those needing such facilities which is located on Manzanita Ave near the south-end of the Millard County Fairgrounds property.
There are many activities to enjoy, for example, fishing, swimming, boating or water-skiing at nearby Gunnison Bend Reservoir, or playing golf on a challenging County-owned 18-hole course 3 miles north on Highway 6, or practice your shooting skills at our Gun Range approximately one mile further north. You may want to take in a movie, bowl, or challenge your skills at the local skate park. Other fun adventures include participating in regional sporting activities, or relaxing in the city park while dangling your feet in the coolness of the waterfall. Be sure to visit the Great Basin Museum, the Topaz Museum and the Delta Community Center (where tourism information is available), all located on Delta’s Main Street downtown. Delta is also your gateway to the Great Basin National Park in Nevada, and is accessible traveling west along Highway 6/50.
