We have been coming here since 2005 and each year it gets better. We started with just friends and now we bring the whole family. The fishing is always fantastic in Anderson reservoir. Each of the 10 camp spots has it's own feel from cozy for 2 to group camping for 30. This place has what you need.
The reservoir is amazing! You can fish offshore, but it’s best with a float tube. My visit was in Aug 2017.
This campsite is FCFS-no reservations. I believe it’s either 8-9 sites, which are nicely tucked away in large trees and shrubbery. It was damp at this time. We arrived around 11pm, and only had 1 option…next to the vault toilet and road. It was a nice campsite, but the smell of the vault toilet was off-putting. But because we drove a decent distance to be there, we sucked up the smell and eventually the smell went away as long as you were at the site.
Back to the reservoir, it’s so beautiful! There are grazing cows, so be aware of your surroundings.
Hope you enjoy the pictures!
This is a GEM if you like to not see a lot of people and love the outdoors. This is a first come first serve camp area and there is no picnic tables and few out houses so please pack out your garbage and keep this area beautiful. There is some amazing fly fishing in the creeks and lakes in this area. The dirt road is well maintained and you can get a car or truck or trailer in no problem. Lots of amazing trails for side by sides and 4 wheelers.
This is a nice little Gem. It has tent spots for $20 a night, RV hook ups and nice little cabins for $45 or a deluxe cabin for $65 a night. There is a store on site and it is still close to town. Picnic tables, and fire pits at each spot and lots of shade. This is a really nice camping spot. Close to Capitol Reef or the Boulder mountain and also lots of great jeep trails up Sand creek road. This is God's country.
North and West beach are first come first served past the pay station. You can camp right up on the water or there are some areas with light shade. If you want a reserved spot with hookups you'll need to go on the East side to the Oasis campground.
We go here 3-5 times a year. It's a favorite with the dogs.
I'll keep this short, but suffice it to say this place should be on your bucket list! If you're on The Dyrt, you probably aren't afraid of campfire smoke, bugs, or… well… dirt. So if that's the case this place is definitely for you. You can camp, park an RV, or rent a bus that toured with the Grateful Dead. (Allegedly). They also have little cabins and trailer homes you can rent as well. Amazing soaking and star gazing, and surprisingly easy soaking. Maybe I just got lucky!
Kent’s campground is great place to have an RV or pitch a tent. Amazing scenery all around Beaver area. Rainbow trout are average size. Running water and bathrooms all around the campsite. Camp host is very friendly to everyone. Busy on the weekend, during the week not so much. Kent’s campsite done by September 15, not sure when it opens again.
This is a nice campground conveniently located only 20 minutes outside of Beaver. We have been here twice and seen deer, beavers, and turkeys. The stars are spectacular and you can see the Milky Way on a clear night. Bathrooms are not great.
This location has clean bathrooms and showers centrally located on the grounds. So it doesn’t matter if you’re in a tent or RV, it’s a close distance for everyone. They are also pet friendly with trash cans and doggie bags placed around the site. Our tent area included water/electric, a picnic table, and fire pit/grill. We really enjoyed our little grass area and the quiet surroundings!
We got a tent site. The tent sites are all gravel with a table and water. The good: Location close to Capitol Reef National Park. We used it as a base camp for hiking in the national park. Has water, table, fire pit, and wind break. The small swimming pool was loved by the kids The grassy park area was nice. The views. Red cliffs and Thousand Lakes Mountain to the north and Boulder Mountain to the south. The bad: Not enough trees. There are several small very pruned Cottonwood trees, but it is not a shady place. Small spaces. Like most RV parks, you are very close to your neighbors. Everyone near us was quite and kind though. There is no grass for the tent sites. You put your tent in gravel. About the only grass is very small pieces for the RVs and the grassy park area.
Beautiful place. It is about a 15-20 minute drive from Capitol Reef National Park. Bad: Tent sites are small. Depending on the site, you will have to put your tent on the gravel spots for cars. Not many sites. I imagine on a spring/summer weekend it will fill up. Not lots of shade, but some juniper trees. Good: Flush toilets where a pleasant surprise. Great scenery. Kids wanted to explore all over. The red rock cliffs are pretty. It is close to town if you need something, but at camp it doesn’t feel close to town. We got there at 2 pm on a Thursday in July and only one spot had been claimed.
This is a primitive spot no tables or fire pits. You can camp in the lava tube they are warm in the winter and it is a fun place to explore. This is close to the hot pots and we stay here in the fall or spring. It can get crowded so be prepared not to camp in the caves on a busy weekend. If sleeping in a tent make sure you bring a sleeping pad because the ground is really rocky.
This is a primitive style campground on the Thousand Lake mountain range. You can look over and see into the desert on one side and see Fish lake mountain range on the other. We use this campground during the elk hunt and there is still lots of room. there are picnic tables and fire pits and out house style bathrooms. No hook ups but you can't beat the view of this camp site.
This campground was clean and calm. We liked having the store on site, and the drive to Capitol was an easy one. The staff was very friendly, the showers and bathrooms were very clean, and we loved the open lawn in the middle. We really liked how shallow the fire ring was. Capitol Reef is one of our favorite National Parks , and we will camp here next time we go!
We were on our way to four corners and have been camping on public land most of the time. When driving through town we saw their sign “cabins $50”. Very cool place, great vibe, the owner is very friendly. The pizza down the road is an added bonus.
This campground is perfectly tucked away in the hills near Kanosh UT. About 15 mins down a back road from the freeway (I-15). It is small but large open areas for kids and/or dogs to run and play. It’s quiet and clean. There are two bathrooms within a short walk from every site. The creek runs near the sites and it’s the perfect sound to lull you to sleep. You can reserve a site ahead of time on the website or walk in and pay at the site as long as there is no reservations. Very simple. There is NO cell service so if you are coming from a long distance be sure to make sure there are availability’s before you drive into the site. If you’re ever taking that route through Utah and need a place to crash I would recommend this to anyone!
Family comes here every year around Mother’s Day. This year we went May 17th and it was still cold.The water was very high. We love palisades or we wouldn’t be going every year. It is getting busier so it’s harder to get a reservation. It’s so pretty and the golf course is gorgeous.
No water available, Restroom is Vault toilet
The Black Flat CUA Dispersed camping area is approximately 27.4 miles northeast of Loa. Head north on N Main St toward W 100 N St 0.6 miles. Turn right onto UT-72 N/E 500 N and stay on UT-72 N 9.6 miles. Turn right (east) onto FR015 for 5.6 miles. Turn left (west) on FR43F for 0.5 miles.
Take your fly rod, always remember to pinch your barbs. This includes meat-casters unless you are fishing to eat.
Not crowded at all.
This is a really nice campground it is primitive with some out houses and picnic tables. You are in the quackies and in the trees. It is higher elevation so make sure you bring your coat. We stay up here quite often during the elk hunt and it is quite busy in the fall but there is shill plenty of room for the kids to bring bikes and 4 wheelers. Dogs and fires are welcome in fire pits. So don't forget to bring the smores. The road getting up to the camp ground is dirt and sometimes can have ruts and is bumpy but has really good access and is well maintained.
If you’re looking for a fun backpacking camping trip where you’re guaranteed to see tons of wildlife, this is it. Not only will you avoid the crowded campgrounds, but you’ll be able to do it without hiking a million miles from your vehicle.
You can park at the trailhead and hike up only 2 miles before you start seeing deer and elk everywhere. You simply follow the river up the canyon, and choose from any of the small flat locations for tent camping, or pick a couple trees to hang a hammock. Choices are abundant. In the summer months, water is scarce so bring water. If the creek is full and running you can simply filter water.
There is a beautiful meadow area at the top of the trail before you begin to descend down the other side (another beautiful area).
Was able to hike in with my 8 year old, and he loved it. Great secluded dispersed spot for wildlife watching.
This is one of the nicest camp spots around. Close to town but close to the boulder mountains. Full hook ups for trailers. Cabins you can rent, and tent spots. Best views in Utah. If you like red dirt this is the place to be. Close to Capital Reef or the Boulder Mountains. The owners are on site and are very friendly. Lots of stuff to do in Torrey. They have a store on site plus it is close to gas station if you forgot anything.
Make sure you reserve a spot of Apple Days in July it is a fun time to be in Torrey. Lots of stuff going on. This place is busy all summer long so it is best to call ahead. Spring and Fall is amazing in Torrey and is not as hot as the summer months.
Ferron Campground is located across the lake from the southwest campground near the guard station. The campground has picnic tables, fire pits, and a gorgeous view of the lake from nearly every site.
This side of the lake is a bit more dense with trees, including downed old growth so firewood is readily available. This area is also a bit more guarded from the wind the area tends to get in summer months.
Overall, a beautiful place to camp.
Just driving through, we heard about this place and have to come back! Makes you feel like you’re back in the 80’s just having a good time, away from all the stress and worries of the city. Not to mention the super warm hot spring rubs. Even the little store they have there is so cute! We want to stay in one of the buses next time!
Ferron Reservoir is one of Utah's best kept secrets compared to many of the crowded campgrounds in the High Uintas.
Ferron sits right on the top of the Manti-La Sal mountain range that divides the state in two. You can get to the reservoir from either side of the range, and the roads drivable for just about any vehicle.
The campground has vault toilets, fresh water, fire pits, a couple-dozen individual sites, 1 group site, and a gorgeous view of the reservoir from just about any location. Feel free to bring your canoes or kayaks and spend the day paddling around and fishing. The fishing is great!
We take our entire family every year for our Family Reunion Camping Trip! It's one of those campgrounds that our kids will remember forever.
Great dispersed camping right outside the west side of the park in a beautiful area next to a small canyon. Plenty of room, accessible with low clearance car. There are porta potties on site that we’re cleaned the morning we got there! I also had service which was nice.
