Local fav!

This place is favorite spot to camp if I’m staying local. There are so many spots, and they are all very private. The Camp hosts are great! There’s a hidden waterfall you can hike too, and a river runs through the park. It’s a must!

Riverside retreat

High creek is a great place to camp, as most sites are on or near the river. Although this listing only shows one campground, there are lots of dispersed campsites all up and down the road. The earlier sites are big enough to pull almost any trailer in. There are two vault toilets on the road, one at the campground listed and another at the end of the road, at the high creek trailhead.

The campsite I chose was about 200 feet before the high creek campground, and had a great river access! Water was about thigh deep, and coooold, but it felt great on such a hot day! note With lots of cattle grazing in the area, although the water looks crystal clear, it is very unsafe to drink without purifying via boiling, iodine or filtration.

I would highly recommend visiting! Great summer relax spot. But please, leave it better than you found it!

Great Winter Activity!

The Green Canyon yurt it's owned and managed by Powder Ridge ski touring. During the winter months, Powder Ridge manages the Green Canyon Road and grooms it on an almost daily basis. It is groomed for cross-country skiing with the designated track on one side. You can also Snowshoe, or ride your bike with fat tires up if your adventurous! The trail is approximately 3.8 miles long with a steady incline most of the way. There are a few spots with decent little Hills.

The yurt itself can sleep 12, on four twin over full bunk beds. There's a cooking area, table, pots and pans, and of course a pot belly stove to keep it nice and warm. I had the opportunity to Snowshoe up with a friend after Christmas 2016, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The folks at Powder Ridge were great to work with.

I will say if you Snowshoe up, please don't do what we did and make sure to avoid the established cross country ski track. As it was our first time snowshoeing up there, we didn't know and ended up ruining it in a few places. They were able to fix it easily that night, but had we been paying attention they would not have had to.

I believe we paid $250 for the night, the pricing may have changed so I would refer you to them for more information in that regard. The cost however, would easily be distributed among 12 friends.

Fun and close to other recreation.

A very clean and very convenient campground. Tons of trails nearby and being on the reservoir is great for hot days. Fishing was a blast! Will definitely be back.

This site has beautiful views!

My girlfriend and I day camped here for several hours. Even though there were numerous people here, we were still able to get a little piece of heaven from the Tony Grove Lake area for several hours.  It was well worth the visit.w

Escaping summer heat

This campsite is well over 9000 feet very beautiful lots of trees and foliage very much enjoyed our two night stay out of our van Nice secluded lots four wheeler trails lots of hiking Beautiful view of the mountains

Not a bad spot

They assign spots when u arrive without u looking at the spots. Then if u don’t like the spot they give u a lot of trouble to change it. We had to speak to a ranger, who also gave us the run around about the spot— but eventually agreed to swap the spot. It was pretty but at around 2 am a group of raccoons scared the crap out of us when they started fighting outside our tent. Dealing with that whole ordeal and the drama from the spot change made us not want to stay longer than one night.

Inaccessible

This campground is not accessible by vehicle.

We use this KOA to dump

We use this KOA to dump our trailer sewage and it is very convenient.

East Canyon State Park

Great family place , large tent sites , bathroom , beautiful views, and clean water .

Great weekend campsite!

Great campsite. The host was very nice. It gets packed during the weekends so plan ahead! Right along side the river too

Awesome waterfront campground

This was a really nice place for only being 40 mins from the city. Good beach front not a far walk from our campsite. Lots of trees to hang your hammocks up on. If you have some water toys it’s awesome because you can anchor them on the shore or the dock.

Not a camp site

No longer allows overnight camping!

No longer available

Federal website says it’s been decommissioned and is no longer in use

Passing Through, glad I stopped.

Stayed overnight while passing through. Super clean park, bathrooms were very clean and well lit. I got a tent site with electric hook up, spot is long so you have plenty of space along with a small grill. No fire ring rings at the spots due to closeness but there is a community place for fires with firewood. Was able to check in at any time and it was super easy. Saw a double rainbow when I woke up haha perfect.

Maiden voyage weekend.

This place was awesome for our firs weekend in our trailer. Gorgeous country and easy access.

Great Tent Sites

Great tent sites, large & clean. Campground hosts take pride & keep everything tidy. Neighbors can be noisy during quiet hours, but that is no fault other than immature college kids.

Great spot

I love this campground we stay here with family every year. Almost all of the sites are nicely shaded and you can buy firewood here for $6. We have no cell service in the campground but you can walk to the road and get service if needed. Behind the bathrooms on the South side there is a little trail with a beautiful view of the lake. If you go exploring behind the East bathrooms you’ll see a little creek. The trails are no longer maintained which is a bummer so be careful.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles!

If you’re passing through, or looking to stay in SLC for an extended period of time, aaand you want to be close to the city, this might be your spot. There are hundreds of sites for RVs, 5th Wheels, and even tents.

Sites have water, electricity, and picnic tables. There is a pool and hot tub on site, and even a few cabins. There are several rows of long term tenants that live on site as well.

Your only minutes from downtown, and your literally walking distance from one of the greatest best kept secret Mexican restaurants in the city, Nicos (shhhh)!

RV Heaven

My god-father and mother come into town yearly and stay at this location in their 5th wheel. The facility is spotless! Seriously, the staff keep the entire grounds in great condition. There are dozens and dozens of spots that fit just about any size RV or 5th wheel. Every spot has water and electric hookups, picnic tables, and enough grass space to setup pet pens.

There are several different amenities including a pool, playground for the kids, life-size chessboard, and a mini-breed dog park!

Beautiful and unique, but an insane amount of bugs May-July

Be warned!!! If you decide to hike anywhere on the island while the bugs are hatching you will need a ton of bug spray and bug nets to cover every inch of you!

We decided to do Frary Peak and were eaten by bugs for a lot of the trio especially the portion that goes to the west side of the mountain. The only thing that gave us any saving grace was the stronger winds while we traversed along the ridge at various points. Had a great view of the bison from above but will probably only visit in fall or winter from now on

Pretty spot for a nice weekend

My fiance and I really enjoyed our weekend. Our spot was kinda near some other sites, but everybody was really respectful. It was really nice to have the noise from the river in the background. There are plenty of amenities as far as water and toilets are concerned.

My one gripe is that the campground is fairly close to the main road and you can hear all the traffic. It does quiet down later in the day, but the road noise can be distracting at times.

New and Beautiful

We were running out of options for places to stay as most things were completely full. This was a wonderful surprise when we found it. Their after hours check in process was organized and amazing. The facilities were immaculate and the grounds were beautiful. If we are ever back in the area, we will be sure to visit again.

Short over nighters

We frequently come up here just to sleep outside some nights and head back home in the early morning to get food and shower. There is plenty of hikes but there’s only a few with views that are worth it. Down in the little canyon there is thick sturdy trees to hang up a hammock for a night. One of our friends said they had a cougar encounter but we haven’t seen much wildlife yet.

OWWW

Beautiful park, awesome animals. TERRIBLE FLIES. We had no idea there was little flies that could bite like a bee sting, but there was. And we couldn’t get away from them. This was a trip we left phones at home and just wanted to get away, but we flew over it on the way in. There’s so many trails here and we so many bison it was awesome to see, a mini Yellowstone with sub par “campgrounds” which made us feel like we were still in the city due to them having concrete and artificial sun shades which was necessary.

Peaceful

I just recently stayed at the Spruces. Loved it. Very peaceful. I stayed in campground #47. Right near the end of the loop before it's goes into the peaceful forest section. Great one. Right by water but gets a heck of a lot of sun in the morning. Enjoyed my stay.

Nice park, but minimal space between sites

This RV park was overall a good experience. We didn’t use the pool, but they had one. Our biggest complaint about this park was the minimal distance between sites. It does have close proximity to a lot of what Ogden offers. Concrete pads were nice, but were a couple dollars more than gravel sites. Checkin was quick and easy. Their preferred route out of the park is fairly narrow and goes right by the dumpster. We had to go around another loop and take a different lane out due to a park guest who decided to back up and block the preferred route while loading their toy hauler. We were only here for one night on the way to another destination, but we might have used more amenities if staying longer. Price seemed reasonable.

LOUD!!!

Stayed here a few nights and it was unbelievably loud.. Tons of road noise from the highway and an early train comes through every morning. Nothing worth seeing here. If you have a boat it may be fun but not for just camping.

Beautiful!

Easily accessible, spacious and beautiful.

Hot and dry but iconic

Not a destination but nice stopover. Willard Bay much nicer. It's hot and the great salt lake is not where one wants to cool off.
