Avintaquin Campground is located atop scenic Indian Canyon, just off Highway 191 between Duchesne and Helper.
Visitors come to the area for its scenic beauty, wildlife viewing opportunities and to explore the Reservation Ridge Scenic Backway.

The campground contains one group site that can accommodate up to 50 people, with several picnic tables, a campfire ring, grills, utility tables and parking for 10 vehicles. Several single-family sites are available, each equipped with a picnic table, campfire ring and utility table.
Vault toilets and trash collection are provided, but there is no running water. Campers must bring their own supply.

Decided to camp here at dusk one night. We were headed North of Price to Kamas and the Mirror Lake Byway when we decided to cut a few driving hours off the day and pull in. Very pleased with our choice. Campground was all but empty so we took our pick of good sites. Vaults were clean and sites were spacious. Very quite and peaceful! The perfect tent spot!
