Moon Lake Campground is located on the shores of the scenic two mile long Moon Lake on the southern slope of the 13,000 foot peaked Uinta Mountains. Visitors come to Moon Lake to enjoy cool mountain air, fishing, canoeing and motor- boating, scenic vistas, hiking trails and horse rides.
Moon Lake offers great canoeing and motor-boating. Anglers fish for tiger, rainbows and brook trout, kokanee salmon and splake. Tiger and rainbow trout are actively stocked annually. The Lake Fork Trail and Brown Duck Mountain Loop hiking/equestrian trails begin at this site offering excellent opportunities in the High Uintas Wilderness where numerous alpine lakes provide great backcountry fishing. The Fish Creek National Recreation Trail begins at the Moon Lake Dam and ascends northeast up to center park, climbing from 8,200’ to 10,400’ over 5.6 miles.
The Moon Lake Resort is adjacent to the campground and offers small engine boat rentals. Flying J Outfitters is located one mile before the campground, at the Lake Fork trailhead, offering both scheduled and walk-up horse rides as well as drop and pack trips into the High Uintas Wilderness.

My family has been going here every year in the summer for the last 30 years, we love to rent a boat and go fishing(we use the little gold and silver jakes fish hooks) and then we serve them up over the campfire. Great place to camp!
This area is more green than I usually expect from Utah. Great kayaking and some moderate/long hikes on site. We hired horses to explore the area, highly recommended. It’s close to lots of other state and national lands too, so it’d make a good base camp. Some tent sites are isolated, many are fairly wooded. Everything is basic and clean, as we expect from national facilities like this.
