This is a very easy place to throw a tent up or park an RV close to lake and good fishing. In some beautiful country.
There are some primitive bathrooms, and nice tables. The campsites are big. The only downside to this campsite is the road is close by and can be noisy.
This is a fun place to visit while in Wayne County. The fishing is awesome and there is always lots of wildlife to see. You can also camp in the aspen tree.
Big campsites with tables, close to Fish Lake and lots of mountain views.
Amazing views, red rock cliffs and red dirt for miles.
Primitive camping with nice tables, and bathrooms, and fire pits. It can get hot here in the summer and it is nice that they have drinking water at the campsites. They have a big group site that can be reserved and it will hold lots of people. Lots of fun hikes close by. Lots of fun hills for the kids to climb.
Dont let first glance or reviews of run down facilities deter you, unless your a germaphobe. We have been to many hot springs in various levels of improvement or natural state, and these are a gem. Sure some upgrades and improvements could be made, but well worth the cost. Great water, unique tubs built into the side of springs, crazy painted buses or old cabins to stay in. If your looking for different, fun, and awesome- this is a great place to check out. Off the beaten path, nothing much in town but one drive in diner plus a few shops. And such helps the feeling of the whole experience. Cant hear the interstate or traffic, views a plenty, ducks, geese and some stunning peacocks running around. It was a great experience and cant wait to go back!
Go slow or you'll miss the entrance, it's not marked. Entrance and exit have rocks you need to navigate around but don't let that worry you. I spent a night there in May 2019. Contrary to other posts here, it does have 2 porta-potties. Temps drop quickly, it may be a bit windy, but the views we're excellent. It rained the day we got here and the morning we left. The ground gets a little muddy but no worries. Plenty of large sites as well as hidden sites and tent sites. Quite a few dogs were there, all well behaved. It's a clean area. My only not pick was that people in larger RVs didn't respect your space, parking 20 feet away when there were 5 or 6 very large spaces available. Seemed like their intent was to piss you off so you would leave. We did when the RV that was 20 feet away pulled out 2 generators.
We were not planning on going to Capitol Reef on our Utah trip but we got some unexpected snow at Canyonlands so we headed out early. So glad we made the trip! Capitol Reef had lots of wildlife like Deer and Bighorn Sheep and petroglyphs that were really cool to hike to and see.
Me made a stop at Goblin Valley State Park so we arrived to Capitol Reef a bit later than we would have liked. All the standard campgrounds were full but the ranger at the visitor center told us to head out of the park towards the town of Torrey and almost immediately on our right there was free BLM camping land.
Totally free, no amenities, but what a beautiful night!! It was cold! But so quiet even though we had many neighbors on their own Utah adventures. Our neighbors were a single girl in a truck and cab over camper from Alaska, and a couple in a blue school bus. Quite the assortment. Obviously, a variety of vehicles will make it our there.
No toilet, leave no trace, no fires. Totally a park, sleep, and go spot. There is so much to see and do in Utah, that is ok by me! We woke up, drove into Torrey, picked up a cup of coffee, and started hiking down Capitol Gulch with no one else around.
This place is hilarious. The pools are awesome, and the retro busses outfitted as campers are rustic. It has showers, bathrooms, and a gift shop. It has a stage on site where there are impromptu bands and yoga classes that take place. I love the wild feel of the place.
This campground is really clean and quiet. There’s room for tents and also it has many RV sites with electric, water and sewer. We were there in late September and the lake was very dry down to the creek bed. We saw many deer and jackrabbits. We would definitely stay there again. It is a developed campground.
This campsite was superb. Nestled in the pando forest in fish lake national forest this campground was very basic. No showers (you could shower at the local store nearby) and the bathrooms we just a couple stalls and a sink. We faced our tent towards fish lake as the sun was setting
Very pretty and quiet in the fall. There were only a few people camped here and most of the aspen trees of Pando grove were turning a beautiful yellow. The campground is very close to the lake in which there is a boat ramp and places to have a picnic. The nearby shore trail also gives an easy leisurely hiking option is fishing isn't your way of recreating. There's also an official Utah Geotour Geocache very close by which offers these unique county patches for completing a county! The camping fee is $15 a night but can be reduced by half if you have an America the Beautiful Pass. Another thing of note here is that the camping limit is 10 days and not the usual 14
Great spot to relax and fish or hike. Plenty of shade and privacy, pleasant even in summer when the weather is very hot. A lot of the sites have direct access to the creek and are in the shade all day.
It has friendly staff,Nice bathrooms with showers
This campground is similar to Bowery Creek except filled with more trees and not every site has a view but you can walk across the street to the lake. This campground has showers and bathrooms which all the campgrounds are allowed to use.
We couldn’t get a spot at Capital Reef so I checked on The Dyrt and low and behold there’s a lake only an hour away. If you want peaceful and cool it’s here. If you like to fish they have 20-40lb mackinaw trout. There are several camping sites around the lake but this one in my opinion has the best views of the lake and ambiance. Others are either so filled with trees you don’t see the lake and one has barely any trees. Also, a great price for the beauty!
Perfect for trail enthusiasts. Plenty of places to explore. Some sites have corrals and some only have hitching posts. Clean bathrooms. There is water, however there are no showers. You can pay 3 dollars at a lodge about 10 minutes away and take a shower there.
Obviously no hookups for rvs and trailers but if you want to get out in nature, you'll love this area. Great views all around and generally, nice spots.
Beautiful spot to stop on our route. The day we arrived was very windy. The view is serene and it’s very quiet. There are showers and bathrooms. Most campsites have water and electric and there are tent sites with great views of the lake. They have a couple cabins and on site kayak rentals.
If you are camping on north or west beach be aware it is first come first serve weekends and holidays are busy but great water access and atv/utv trails. They allow fires most of the year and have movable firepits when it is allowed they pull them off the beach when not allowed. You can also move around tables too. This is a windy beach so prepare.
Love this campground. Abosolutely beautiful. Favorite Mountain of all time is Monroe Mountain. Monrovian is great for overnight camping or you can just go up and do dinner if a local. You can fish the river, ride atvs, hike, and cook over the fire. Such a beautiful place.
