Cedar Springs Campground is located in the beautiful Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area on the Ashley National Forest at an elevation of 6,100 feet. Flaming Gorge Reservoir and Cedar Springs Marina are less than a mile from the campground. Exciting recreational activities abound, including boating, water skiing and fishing.
Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area is known not only for its beautiful red cliffs, but also for its world-class fishing for lake, brown and rainbow trout. Boating, water skiing, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and scuba diving are popular activities on the reservoir. Cedar Springs Marina is adjacent.
Bear Canyon Trail, an easy 3-mile round-trip trail for hiking and mountain biking, begins nearby and leads to views of Red Canyon and Flaming Gorge.
This small campground contains single and double-family sites with picnic tables and campfire rings. Vault toilets, drinking water, a dump station and fish cleaning station are provided. Showers are available a half-mile away at Deer Run Campground.
For large group camping, the nearby Arch Dam, Greendale, Dripping Springs, Antelope Flat and Dutch John Draw Campgrounds have several group sites available.
Cedar Springs is situated among juniper, pinyon pine and sagebrush on a hillside above Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Shade is limited but the vegetation provides good privacy between sites, many of which have scenic views of the reservoir below.
Flaming Gorge Dam offers guided tours of the working hydroelectric plant and the dam, and the adjacent visitor center contains area history exhibits.
The Green River below the dam provides spectacular rafting opportunities. A trip down the river offers unique geology, outlaw history and Native American rock art.

Clean sites, very overpaved. Picnic tables, firepits, pit toilets. Firewood sold by host $7/bundle. $24/night single site. The campground is kind of on a cliff overlooking the water but there really isn’t any good view or way down to the water. Very pretty sunset.
We stayed here on a scout camp out for a couple of days we stayed in a group sight # 10 and it had 2 picnic tables and offered lots of room. We had 6 tents set up and there was still lots of room. There was plenty of parking we had at one time 2 cars a big van and my truck and drift boat and had no trouble with parking in the double spot. We were right next to the camp host and next to the bathrooms with running water and hot showers.
The campground is a short walk or drive to the marina. We caught lots of fish and crawfish from the shore at the marina and the kids all had fun.
The camp sight has lots of Cider trees, and pine trees and amazing views. Amazing sunset and sunrises as well. There is running water for RV and lots of room. It wasn't full in June and there were still lots of places to camp.
This is in a great location if you are going fishing in the Green river or on Flaming Gorge. We were only 10 minutes to the put in of the A section and within walking distant to the marina for Flaming Gorge. We did the free dam tour it is a must see if in the area. You are only a couple of minutes drive to Flaming Gorge Lodge if need a hot meal or fishing equipment they have a great fly shop, store, and cafe. If you forget any food items like ketchup they sell everything at good pricey. Plus it's a great place to get more ice and a coke.
Fire pits with a nice heavy grill on them. We used it to cook steaks and they were excellent. Also helpful when we cooked crawfish one night. The camp host sells firewood if needed. I was able to try out my new Grubsticks and made some awesome s'mores #grubstick, #Ilovemynewgrubsticks, #bestsmoresever.
We are traveling in Scoop our 26' travel trailer. We like rustic campgrounds, but expect to get the services as listed on campground websites. Cedar Springs in a National Forest Campground run by a third party concessionaire. The website said the campground was open and offered vault toilets, water spigots and a dump station. We were going to need a dump station visit so chose this campground over many of the others available in the area. Cedar Spring also has good reviews online.
Upon arrival the campground was about half full, but no water was on yet, the dump station was closed, the camp host had set up, but was not present and the vault toilet cleaning logs said baths had not been cleaned for 6 days. We stayed even though the rate for basically no services was $23. We had stayed the previous night at a forest service campground in the Black Hills that had cleaned baths and spigots that worked for only $10. This campground needs to offer a lesser cost for off-season level of services.
Gripping over, site C offered a beautiful view of the reservoir from the picnic table. Most sites are best for smaller rigs, tent trailers and tents. There were only 4-5 sites that would accommodate our 26' trailer. Because the campground is on the side of a hill, sites are pretty unlevel, but we were able to adapt. Cell signal was good here and we were able to pick up 10 TV stations with our antenna. If you have a dog, watch for burrs, there are some nasty ones.
