7 Reviews of Tarryall Campground
Good atv trails

There are a lot of near by atv trails, close to a good fishing lake. Other than that, not too exciting.

Family favorite

Been going here since 1991. We go behind the reservoir and follow signs to Packer (Yes, named after Alferd ) Gulch. Abundant disbursed camping. Water pump at the reservoir. Target shooting and ATV roads. Rough road going in but have done it in everything from a Taurus, to a mini van, to a jeep with pop -up. Fallen wood everywhere.

Cold but quiet

Granted it was cold when we were out there so take this as a "non-busy" season but we loved the solitude of the weekend. 

We had a beautiful view of the reservoir and were all alone at the site. There was one other RV in the area but they were quiet. 

No bathrooms up near our site, there are bathrooms down by the lake. We weren't sure if we were in dispersed or the campground itself. 

Great location for fishing, biking, hiking, and relaxing with beautiful views. 

Bonus: The small general store in town (at the main road) makes pretty great breakfast burritos and fudge as well!

Small, beautiful!

We camped here early in the spring season, almost no one was there except us! Only a few campsites and the lake was calm enough for fishing from our canoe.

Tarryall Resevoir Lakeside

First come, first serve and no fees! If you want a spot on the lake you need to come out mid-week to set up as there are only 17 campsites. No hookups, no campfires, and no potable water. Most people use the lake for fishing but also great for kayaking or paddleboarding (mostly mornings when winds are low). ATV and Jeep trails nearby. No phone service or stores/businesses within about 20min from resevoir. Bathroom facilities and picnic tables at sites; campsites fairly close together. Hiking trails nearby.

BLM camping

Polk Pleasant camping during the week, but very noisy with OHV's on the weekends.
