Picturesque Landscape

Beautiful island in the middle of the Great Salt Lake. The bison are free grazing all around and a few came right up to our campground in the early morning! There is a ranch on the far side of the island (Fielding Garr Ranch) which is adorable and definitely worth a visit. We went in Oct. 2020 so it was not very busy and it felt like the closest neighbors were pretty distant. There are plenty of hiking trails to choose from with varying skill levels. Absolutely will return!

Nice In Town Option

An inexpensive stay in town near great places like Silicon Slopes, Thanksgiving Point, Utah Lake, Traverse Mountain and centered between Salt Lake and Provo. This is a nice spot along the Jordan River Parkway. The hosts are a little loony, but they stay out of your way if you follow the rules of the park. There are nice tables, boat launch for non-motorized water crafts, bathrooms, and playgrounds.

Loved this place!

We stayed in mid October when the campground is first come first serve. Good thing we got there early in the morning (it was Saturday) because they had just closed an entire loop that significantly reduced the number of sites. We got the last one available but it was a really nice site with a lot of privacy (17). This entire area is very pretty. The fall colors were amazing! Tip: don’t drive to the upper lake, it was mostly dry in the fall and the drive was VERY rough for 3 miles uphill.

Great place for fishing

They regularly stock the lakes here with Brook Trout and Rainbow Trout. It is a fantastic place to bring your kids for fishing. It's only about 25 minutes up Payson Canyon, it has a great backwoods feel but includes good parking, close campgrounds and a paved path around the biggest of the Payson Lakes, Big East Lake. Every time I have fished here, I have caught fish and most times I catch my daily limit.


The island is absolutely beautiful, the bison amazing and we looked at two campgrounds that were both in great locations, with great spots.  Unfortunately all that beauty can't distract you from the thousands of bugs that are determined to eat you alive.  We had already set up camp, sprayed bug spray and brought out all our anti-bug measures, but none of it worked.  We had to break down camp and leave.  Driving off the island, it sounded like rain, but it was in fact bugs hitting the windshield and front of the car.  I would not come back to camp here, but it's worth a day trip.

Great place to stay

We go there 3 or 4 times a year , and love the full rv hook ups. And camp host great guy. Hoping to be able to do same thing in next few years.  Great view of lake and  can walk down to swimming area . Great fishing,  especially if you know where to go.

Silver Lake

you’re definitely going to need 4WD and high clearance because the roads leading up to the campsite are filled with ruts and holes. the views make the drive there worth it, though. the fall colors during the day and the stars during the night were spectacular!

Cool Spot

Nice campsites.  The hosts of the campground were a young couple which was a nice change.  We stayed on a Sunday night and the sites were packed with day use people.  As the sun set everyone, literally almost everyone, left.  Would be a bummer if you pulled in looking to camp a half hour before.  Overall, def. would recommend.

One of our favorite places

This is such a pretty and accommodating place to stay. They had a small pond for kids to fish in, two swimming pools and two hot tubs, very clean and modern facilities, well maintained campsites with fire pit, a cute little shop with firewood, treats, and other necessities and they have dvds and sports equipment you can check out. Such a fun place!

Disperse Camping, Great Lakes.

I love camping here because of all of the available spaces, also the trails for hiking are amazing and there are so many options. We hiked up to Ruth Lake and had a picnic there, we saw a lot of people going up that way who were backpacking.
