Surrounded by streams

kids fishing in the streams

Deuces Spruces

It was a great camping spot! It was quite the drive up the canyon, however it was worth it! With the current fire restrictions you aren't able to have fires unless it's an official campground like Spruces. I enjoyed having our own personal space and privacy as well! Great camp manager who was always willing to help!

Have a great time. Such a beautiful campground. #theluckycharmers

Spruces is beautiful and easy to access with great trail access!

We stayed there just overnight, but it was really pleasant!

Close to so many hikes

I stayed at Spruces a few years ago and absolutely loved it. There is an awesome hike to Dog Lake on the North side of the canyon close to the campground.

Great Overnight Close to SLC

This campground has the advantage of being up the canyon so you feel far away from the city, but close enough that you could go on a work night and still make it to the office the next day. Fire pits and restrooms are near campsites, but note that the gate closes late at night so expect to walk from the road if you show up too late. More of a loud, lively site than a quiet spot in the wilderness. A fun place for camping and making s'mores with friends.

Conveniently located near the Salt Lake City

Spruces is right up Big Cottonwood Canyon which makes it more of a Staycation for us. They are strict on the 10pm quiet time which can be great if you are there to sleep and get up early but can be an inconvenience if you want to stay up late chatting around the fire. Another negative is its located in a water shed so you have to leave your fur babies at home. They also book up very quickly for the summer. Try to get a site by the river the white noise is great for sleeping.
