Aspen Campground is nestled in the scenic North Fork Drainage just off Highway 35, about 13 miles from Tabiona, Utah.
The North Fork Drainage lies on the southern slope of the beautiful Uinta Mountains in northeastern Utah. Visitors enjoy fly-fishing and exploring the many local trails.
Fishing for brook, brown and rainbow trout is a popular activity on the North Fork Duchesne. Hiking, mountain biking, OHV and horseback riding trails are in the area.
The campground contains single and double-family sites, all with picnic tables and campfire rings. Some sites overlook the river. One group site for up to 32 people is also available and is equipped with picnic tables, serving tables and a campfire circle with benches.
Vault toilets and trash collection are provided. Roads and parking spurs are dirt.
The campground is situated in a forest of aspen, subalpine fir, lodgepole pine and spruce just above the North Fork Duchesne River at an elevation of 7,200 feet. The campground affords beautiful views of the surrounding canyon and summer wildflowers are plentiful.
The North Fork Drainage provides access to the Granddaddy Lake region of the High Uintas via Grandview Trail. Numerous sparkling lakes provide great backcountry fishing. Backpacking, hiking and horseback riding are very popular in this breathtaking area.

Many individual sites have great shade front the trees. However, the group site has little. Also, at the time I camped, the water fill station was contaminated, so you had to pack in all you water. There is no nearby dump station. However, their are a lot of great things about this campground. The nearby river is great, and we had a lot of deer we saw nearby.
Aspen Campground is a beautiful little campground up Forest Road 144 (just east of Wolf Creek Pass, just before Hannah, UT). There are several reservable sites at Aspen, many of which border the Duchesne River. There is a fence between the campground and the river with a couple access points that can be a little tricky to find since the vegetation is rather thick.
All of the sites have picnic tables and fire pit with plenty of adequate space for large tents. The sites are spread out fairly well, and the thickness of the trees helps to separate the sites even more. All in all, the campground is quiet and quaint, with a gorgeous view of the cliffside to the west.
