Great campground

This is a great campground! We did the dry camping and we were in the location all the way to the back. The only two bad things that we noticed it was there was a lot of trash left over at the campground from the previous occupants. And there is no cell service at all unless you’re up near the gate. Other than that a great location the lady at the gate was very very helpful very very nice. Very knowledgeable was able to provide a lot of answers to our questions. We brought a whole bunch of teenage girls for my daughter‘s birthday party and they were able to be loud and did not disturb anybody. The dry camping spots are very spacious lots of space for the walk around and play and run.

Under construction

Currently upgrading about 12 spaces all new power water and sewer lines. Very nice people and they are making the facilities better. Great wi-fi.

Closed to camping

This open 7/1-11/1 only.

An absolute favorite

I had heard amazing things about Spruces for years.  I was required to take a week off work, so I booked a site here.  And I was not sorry at all.  This was late June.  It rained and snowed for the first couple of days, but that didn't bother us.  It is absolutely incredible here.  The campground is gorgeous!  We had some really irritating people next to us that came later in the week.  But that can't be helped.  Plenty of hiking trails, and just walking the road around the campground was our favorite!

A nice getaway

With covid last year, I just needed to get away.  I went in June, and it was lovely.  It was chilly for sure, but it was so nice.  It was quiet, tucked away from anyone.  Didn't really see anyone for the three days we are there.  Our site was next to the river, which really helped drown out all other sounds!  I have already booked a site for this year!  The campground is beautiful, and we had a lot of aspen trees at our site.  Beautiful!

Not Van Friendly

Called in the morning to make a same day reservation. They have closed the restrooms as a COVID precaution and are requiring everyone to have a self contained bathroom/shower. Did not stay.

Great winter spot

Short hike in for winter camping, leaving out of Snowbasin Maples Lot. Snowshoes or touring setup will make it easier over just boots, especially as the snowpack deepens. Trail is very popular for winter use and you will likely see or hear other people, but it is quiet at night. Choose campsite carefully and consider avy dangers if relevant, but a generally mild slope in the former campground area.

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!

Backcountry Camping

This is not a pull-in campground. This is backcountry access off of the Lame Horse trails. Please use leave no trace and enjoy the backcountry in a responsible manner. We love these areas because the views of the mountains and meadows are breathtaking. You will need to backpack a ways in to find a good place to set up a tent. Just be sure to camp at least 100 feet off the trail. Enjoy responsibly.

So.Many.Bugs

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.
