Gorgeous views

The drive to currant creek was so pretty. I would drive there just for the day. The camp grounds are close together. Luckily it wasn’t that busy when we went. I don’t like the fact that dogs have to be leashed and generators are off by 10:00. Camp host was nice and the camp grounds were big…

Not worth the long drive

The camp sites are stacked on top of one another so if you're looking to get away from people, don't go to currant creek. Every other family around us cut through our camps day and night with no regard for our gear. We reserved two spots in loop A and they were TINY and not at all spaced out like…

Location

Currant Creek is located in Utah

Directions

From Heber City, Utah, take Highway 40 east for 45 miles to the Currant Creek Junction. Turn off the highway and travel in a northwest direction approximately 17 miles to the campground. The road from the highway is paved for 10 miles and graded gravel for 7 miles. Stay on the most traveled road. When there are Y's in the road, stay on the road on the east side of Currant Creek, following the Creek to the dam. When you get to the dam, follow the road almost all the way around the reservoir, and you will find the campground near the southwest end of the lake, a short distance from the dam. Alternate Route: Take US Highway 40 from Heber City and travel approximately 22 miles southeast to FS Road 082 (Coop Creek Road). There is a Coop Creek sign on the north side of Highway 40. Turn north (left) at the sign and travel approximately 8 miles north. At that point there is another sign for Currant Creek Campground. Turn right at the sign and travel approximately 6 more miles east and south to the campground.

About This Campground

Currant Creek Campground sits next to Currant Creek Reservoir at an elevation of 8,000 feet. A wide variety of recreational activities awaits, including boating, fishing and hiking.

Recreation

Rainbow, cutthroat and brown trout fishing is a popular activity on the reservoir, as is canoeing, kayaking and boating. A boat ramp is located on-site.

Numerous horseback riding, hiking and biking trails crisscross the area, including a nice loop around the reservoir. Currant Creek Trail begins in D Loop of the campground.

Facilities

This large campground provides group, equestrian, and single and double-family sites. A day-use area is on the lake shore and offers an accessible fishing dock and fish cleaning station. A small store is located at the campground entrance, with camping and fishing supplies, firewood, ice and limited food items. 

Campsites contain picnic tables, campfire rings, grills and cement site pads. Flush toilets, drinking water and a dump station are provided.  

Natural Features

The campground is situated on a hillside above the reservoir, among stands of aspen, fir and lodgepole pine trees, which offer partial shade. Summer wildflowers are plentiful. Deer and elk frequent the site, and nearly every campsite has scenic views of the reservoir and surrounding mountains.

Nearby Attractions

Race Track Creek Trailhead is just outside the campground. Coal Mine Hollow is just around the lake. Both offer off-road vehicle trail opportunities, hiking and fishing.
