Great for off road vehicles, fishing and camping.

This location is great since it is not very far from the city and you can find different things to enjoy. 

Including fishing, off roading (ATV, 4 wheelers), hiking, kayaking.

$25 a night!

Canyon View RV Park is a long parking lot with 15-20 water and electric hookups and dump station. The sites (back in) are on one side, car (tows) are parked on the other. Most of them have a grassy area behind the RV. A short walk behind the campground and down a treed path is a park. The fee is $25 per night, paid thru a self check in (pictured).

All in all, I thought pricing was a little steep. It’s an option for the area but wouldn’t be my first option.

Beautiful and pricey

Beautiful spot next to trial lake which has amazing fishing, and some historic markers on the dam. Only down side is it's kind of pricey and usually pretty crowded with people

Best off lake pay site.

One of the best off lake sites, well shaded, close to the river and the sites are all very nice. I don't usually stop at main stream sites but those is a good one

Easy primitive camping

No amenities at area. But there is a lodge with Porto-jons maybe a mile away. Took my girlfriend for her 2nd time ever camping and had a blast. I would definitely have a plan B in place if you dont get here during the week. Lots of the spaces filled up.

Fun quick camping

Super pretty and laid back camping. No amenities so bring everything you need. When I went there was only another couple up there so it was pretty secluded. Lots of activities near by.

Nice, spacious, and secluded

Enough trees to keep your site private, able to fit a 30' trailer in over 75% of their spots, and holy cow the number of spots they have, this place is the size of 4 good sized camp grounds combined. Fire pits and picnic tables included, but that's all that's included so pack your generator and fill your water…. 5 stars it's exactly the get away we were looking for.

Too intimate, keep traveling!

The facilities are average, with separate rooms for showers and toilets. However, there are many long-term residents with not enough space for regular camping. Some of these long term residents have multiple cars and end up blocking you in. We really just wanted a good spot to fill up on water and possibly stay for a night or two. Later we found out across the road is a Denny’s/Flying J/Truck stop where we could fill up with water.

Pros: Washer and dryers, small pool, close to Provo Cons: Road noise, train noise, small spaces, long term neighbors.

Overall, I wouldn’t recommend staying here.

If it’s free, it’s for me!

How to get there: From Springville, Utah, go about 10-12 miles up East Canyon Road, and keep to the right up Hobble Creek Road. We passed a golf course, a couple paid forest service campgrounds, and a shooting range. The road will narrow and as you go over a bridge, the road turns to gravel and that’s where the dispersed camping starts. We went about 2-3 miles up Hobble Road from the bridge to find our spot.

Pros: Free camping! The view is amazing and we found a few sites toward the top with fire pits. Road was in good condition all the way. Lots of great hiking.

Cons: No cell service with Verizon, lots of dirt bikers and campsites are close to the road. Very crowded on weekends. Also the road is very narrow and people don’t take the road slowly. Proceed with caution.

Overall, beautiful view and very peaceful at night.

Fun Reservoir

Our kids had a blast playing on the sandy beach area. We camped on the riverside loop and it was okay. There were not many trees and sites were close to each other but it was fine.
