This is an absolutely amazing place. Sits in the heart of the Uintas with the perfect view, unfortunately everyone knows its the best and very difficult to find a spot. Online reservations fill up 6 months in advance, the day they are available and drive ups are tough to find.
Many individual sites have great shade front the trees. However, the group site has little. Also, at the time I camped, the water fill station was contaminated, so you had to pack in all you water. There is no nearby dump station. However, their are a lot of great things about this campground. The nearby river is great, and we had a lot of deer we saw nearby.
Having grown up near here, I love going back to camp at this site. It had flushing toilets, a fill station, and a dump station. The trees are very thick, so from many camp sites, you can’t see the adjacent one. There are nearby trails and a great view of Stillwater dam.
We camped at this trailhead while attempting to hike to the Fifth Water Hot Springs. Due to fire activity, the original trailhead was closed so we camped at the "back way" trailhead. There were signs indicating that dispersed camping was allowed in areas designated by a fire ring. Found one near the trailhead parking. Not many flat places for a tent and there was cow manure all over the ground, so not many options for places to put our tent. The "fire-pit" was also filled in with rocks, thinking this may have been related to the nearby forest fires. May have better luck at the other trailhead in the future.
Camped here early last October and was surprised to end up having a very snowy adventure! The hike in is less then a mile and offers incredibly views. Makes for a very easy backpacking trip. Multiple dispersed campsites are easily identified by fire rings. High altitude means extreme weather is common so prepare accordingly!
Come in on Hwy 35 to the summit and Wolf Creek Campground. Turn left into the grounds then left again to get to the road that leads to the FR91 which will take you back to the primitive areas. The sites are mixed in with pines and Aspen trees, some with great views out on the rim, and most with rock fire rings and plentiful firewood. This is off the beaten path a bit, but it still gets heavily used in the summer months, but there is thousands of acres to find a spot, and some sizable 5th wheels and Motorhomes are up there. Cell service is spotty, and there are no stores close by unless you travel down towards Kamas or Tabiona, so pack what you will need. Water also is only available at official campgrounds, although not as far as food still an inconvenience to fetch. The great thing about this area is your ability to explore, whether it be on foot, bike, ATV or car, there is something for everyone. Remember pack out what you pack in and leave it better than you found it. Enjoy.
I have stayed here a couple times. We like campsite #38 because it is a double spot that can fit 3 or more cars or a truck and boat or large RV or trailer. It has a few flat spots for tents, and 2 tables and a nice fire ring. There are also lots of aspen trees that are nice for hanging a hammock in. The double spot is $46 a night and single is $23
Aspen grove is a beautiful camp site with lots of Aspen trees and in a valley it is a 5 minute walk to the marina of Strawberry. you also can launch a boat at the marina and you are only 5 minutes from the damn, were we caught some 22+ inch cutthrouts and other trout at the damn as well as a few smaller fish.
We caught around 250 crawfish that we cooked and ate at out camp site that night as well as cooking some steaks as well we had a surf and turf it made for a yummy dinner.
There is a water spiket at each campsites and bathrooms are close with running water. There is also a big dumpster to get rid of your trash. There is firewood you can purchase from the camp host. The camp host is really friendly and helpful.
I have stayed here each year in September and there is always spots open. It is better to call ahead because it can fill up. This is a beautiful campsite when the leafs start to change color. This in one of the nicest places to stay in Utah. https://www.recreation.gov/camping/campgrounds/232390
Perfect Base Camp for all the awesomeness of the High Uintahs! Beautiful campground with lakes, hiking, and many other activities nearby. Water is only on May-October so plan accordingly. Also, this other link lets you reserve large group pavilions for camping as well: https://www.hipcamp.com/utah/utah-national-parks-council-campgrounds/large-group-pavilion-bacon-park
This was a lovely way to start our vacation. We had a space that overlooked the lake.
Just be sure you have long enough water and electric hose. The park is directional and our water and power services were on the wrong side. But other than that is was great.
