About Diamond

Diamond Campground is located among shady cottonwoods and willow at an elevation of 5,200 feet. The family sites are located just 15 miles from Spanish Fork and the group sites are 2-3 miles further. Visitors enjoy exploring local trails and relaxing along the stream.

Recreation

The stream and creek offer fishing for brown and cutthroat trout. An interpretive nature trail winds through the campground along the stream. Hiking, biking and off-road vehicle trails are abundant in the area.

Facilities

This large campground offers group sites, single and double-family sites and walk-to tent sites. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Picnic tables, fire rings, utility tables and cement site pads are provided at each site; some sites on less-shady Loop B have picnic shelters.

Group sites have picnic shelters, tables, campfire rings, grills, water spigots and large parking areas. Sites 1A and B are about 2 miles beyond the family campground and sites 3-6 are a mile beyond that. 

Natural Features

Diamond Fork Stream and Wanrhodes Creek run through the site. Loop A has nice cover from cottonwoods and is more shady; Loop B is more open with few trees but plentiful grasses and sagebrush.

Nearby Attractions

Diamond Fork Canyon has an array of things to do and see. Red Ledges Picnic Area is located less than a mile from the campground, with beautiful red rock formations like Diamond Fork Arch.

Fifth Water Hot Springs is a popular attraction. A 2.5-mile trail rewards hikers with scenic views and several hot springs pools of varying temperatures.

Monks Hollow Trail for hiking, biking and off-road vehicle riding, begins 5 miles from the campground.

great location close to town

Diamond is a great go to if you live in SLC. Not far up Spanish Fork Canyon. Great getaway for a weekend for locals.

River near by campground and also the trailhead to hot springs is a few miles up the canyon
