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.

Beautiful spot for snow camping

Stayed here 4/14, the main gate for the Alpine scenic loop is still closed. Little mill is the only campground open, we had a great time. Vault toilets but no toilet paper, so bring your own. A wonderful place to camp next to a river!

Park closed

Park is only open 7/1-11/1.

Closed to camping

This open 7/1-11/1 only.

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!

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.

Love this nearby yurt

This is a great place to take a small group for some winter backcountry fun not far from the city. There are more remote yurt options around, but this one feels pretty remote with its 2.5 mile hike in. It does tend to fill up fast so book early. It has a spacious bunk area with a nice wood burning stove that keeps everything toasty during the cold nights. Grab the gang and have a great time.

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.

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.
