Beautiful, absolutely love

This is a great little campsite to enjoy after exploring the dinosaur quarry. Dogs are allowed on leashes. There is a creek that runs next to the camp site and easy hiking trails all around it. At night it is so dark you can see every star in the sky. The deer and sheep are very active at night which is very fun.

Dispersed camping at Ruth Lake

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!

Carmel USFS campground

Heading South from Manila, Utah on Hwy 44 takes you to the Sheep creek Geological loop. Heading up into the Canyon about 2 mi brings you to the Carmel Campground. This site has trees a creek and amazing beauty, along with wildlife and tons of great outdoor activities, being in such close proximity to Flaming gorge. When I was there the Kokanee salmon were spawning and filled the creek with their vibrant colors. Up the road you can see bighorn sheep that graze in the fields of the ranch and take in the exquisite wonder of what nature has created via the loop road. Manila is close by for any food or drink needs and fresh water in the campground. Please pack out what you pack in and leave it better than you found it. Enjoy.

Beautiful scenery

Expensive but beautiful campground full of plots with full hookups. Next to the river.

Great bathrooms and wildlife

We came late in the year, however one section was still open. There was plenty of spots to choose from. The site had rabbits, deer and antelope roaming around. The bathrooms were clean and well kept. No soap dispensers but there was a hand air dryer.

First to Review
Secluded and off the main path

First thing I noticed about Browne Lake was that most of the campsites were pretty nice, with plenty of trees and well placed amenities like the picnic table and a fire ring. Second, you are not right on top of your neighbors, sites have a nice distance between them so you have the privacy you need. It has vault toilets scattered around the grounds and were well taken care of. Firewood has been picked over pretty good, so you can either drive, not to far to forage for some or by a bundle from the nearby camp host for $7. The scenery around the lake and campground is gorgeous and there are plenty of trails to hike or ride an ATV. At $14 a night it is a bit pricey but worth the money for what you get. It's $4 for an extra vehicle. The lake itself is small and does not have a boat launch, all I saw on the lake was kayaks and some fishing pontoons. There are no close places for any food so pack accordingly, also no cell coverage. Overall this was a great little site that I will go back to. Leave it better than you found it. Enjoy!

Beautiful and quite

The cost is $25 a night but $12.50 with a senior parks pass. ATT Has 3 bars and LTE coverage The campground is very clean, there are very well maintained restrooms with flush toilets and showers free to register guests and $4 fee for others, the roads and sites were all paved with picnic tables and fire pits, there is potable water available throughout but no electric, water or septic hookups in the campground. Potable water and a dump station are located just down the road, for a fee of $6 you can dump and refill your tank. This campground is very close to the Flaming Gorge Reservoir. A hydro electric dam is located about one mile away with a great visitor center. There is fishing in the Reservoir, and great fly fishing on the Green river on the downstream side of the dam with great access. A boat launch is available on the downstream side of the dam for those hearty souls who wish to float the Green river and fish. There is a Marina located just a short way from the campground with a boat launch, a fuel dock, restaurant and small store with very friendly staff. There are several different boats available to rent, which we took advantage of and spent the day enjoying the fantastic views of Flaming Gorge from the water. We spent three days here and enjoyed it greatly, a great place to stop and recharge.

Beautiful Greens Lake

Greens lake is a beautiful little spot with a couple of amenities most campgrounds may not have. Yes it has the obligatory vault toilets that smell and are a bit buggy, but hey, its a camping spot. Picnic tables are a nice addition as well, but still standard fair thus far. Trees are ample for some shade and the grounds are clean and well taken care of. Make sure you get firewood from somewhere, because this place is picked clean. One of the gems of all this is the lake, a short walk from any camp spot, you can fish and just enjoy its peace and tranquility. NOW for the best part!!! You are walking distance from Red Canyon Lodge, super great food when you get tired of Hotdogs and Chili, plus horseback riding and beautiful views of the canyon just up the road. Also Flaming Gorge Lodge a bit futher but easy driving distance has another great restaurant and guide services. I am heading back this weekend. Enjoy.

Cute Tent Sites!

Standard KOA facilities. Very nice tent spots. Headed to the campground after a long day of driving and was pleasantly surprised to find fenced in tent spaces with plots of grass for the tents and an aspen in each lot! Water and electricity available in the spot also!

Shakin Bacon Park Campground!

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
