Moon Lake is a hidden gem in the high Uinta Mountains. We were in group site B. Lots of places to put tents and campers. Walking path to the lake. Lots of hiking trails. One must bring item, is a camping canopy to put over the tables. It helps with keeping the sun and rain away from a good time. There is also a regular campground. I would suggest Upper Loop because there is more shade.
Tis is our favorite place. The lake is gorgeous and the camp ground is clean. The campground is paved and has real toilets! We love to hike, fish and even horseback ride here. And no trip is complete without a treat at the lodge.
