doesn't matter if your tent camping or using an RV I guess I'm kind of partial to this campground my family has had our reunions here for 100+ years. There are freshwater places where you can hook up and get fresh water and there is a RV clean-out spot, and there are restrooms.
For those that need it DuckCreekVillage down the road has a store, gas station, and cabins you can rent. You can also go online and reserve a spot if you need to or a cabin or whatever you like in the area
This spot is right off the hwy but very peaceful. Lots of great tree cover. Best part is you can have your dogs here!
If you love to camp in the woods, Duck Creek is the perfect spot. It's easy to get to (once you get through the mountain pass on either side) off of Utah 14 in the beautiful stretch of land called Duck Creek. Pines and aspen trees are all around, though some sites are more shady than others. If you like to be in the trees or if you like to have full sun for solar, this place has a mix. And it's huge! Nearly 100 sites to choose from in about 4 or 5 loops. We stayed in the A loop, which the major differences are it has flush toilets and all the driveways are paved.
Duck Creek has some nice hiking trails, but a lot of people seem to come here with their ATVs. The campground has an ATV parking lot and trail. Navajo Lake is close by for hiking and mountain biking, and Cedar Breaks and Brian Head are just about twenty and thirty minutes away, respectively.
We made reservations online so that cost an extra $10 in addition to the $17 nightly rate, but we enjoy the peace of mind that we're getting a site and the site that we want. #27 was relatively private and had a lot of trees. A deer visited one afternoon, and a robin was making a nest in the trees above us. It was a very peaceful stay.
The only negative was when we arrived. We came up a steep mountain so didn't have a full water tank, but the dump station was closed when we arrived. The camp host was in his trailer, so we asked where we could fill up water. I don't know if he doesn't have the keys to the gates on the station or what, but he said if our hose was long enough we could fill our tank from the water station there. He seemed put out and not very accommodating to someone requesting fresh water. It's not like we wanted fresh towels! After some creative backing up, parking, and combining and stretching hoses, we filled up our tank. Later, we noticed the gates to the station were open. Okaaaaaay. And when we left two days later, we were grateful the dump station was open.
There seemed to be a bit more trash around than we usually see in campgrounds, but we arrived on a Monday so maybe the weekend crowd was a little sloppy. We left our site cleaner than we found it for sure.
Overall, it was a nice place to spend a few nights as we visited the surrounding area.
Beautiful campground with tall pine trees & clusters of aspen. Well-spaced & large sites with level concrete driveways (good for RV parking) & concrete picnic table/fire pit areas. Clean restrooms, water on taps, close to Duck Creek Reservoir. Friendly hosts & very affordable. Close to many hiking trails. Love Utah's Forest Service Campgrounds!
This is a nice campground where your sites are not too crowded. You're stuck into the trees nicely (for the tent sites, RV are more open) and i think the tent first come first serve sites in loop D and E are better since you're further away from the highway and get less noise. You have your standard table and fire ring plus a good amount of potable water spigots around. There aren't as many bathrooms as you'd think for the amount of people there are (this is a pretty heavily used national forest campground).
For the most part, I really enjoyed this campground. Though a little difficult to find, the campground is incredibly beautiful and smells amazing. You can also make reservations, and it is recommended. It is tucked into a woodsy area and the sites are very private; it almost felt like we were the only ones there. Each site comes with a picnic table, fire ring, and bear bag hook (yes, this is bear country). The only things I disliked were that the table wasn't movable, and there is a giant patch of cement that took up most of the site space. There are flushable toilets and sinks, but no showers. We went on a hunt to find showers since the website said there were some in town, but were told that there were no longer any available. However, after stopping at the Duck Creek Visitor Center across the highway, we finally found out that there are pay showers at the Pinewoods Resort. They were $5 each for an unlimited amount of time, but beware, the hot water runs out quickly. Duck Creek Village doesn't have too much to offer, but the scenery is beautiful. Also, be sure to make a stop at Navajo Lake, just down the road from Duck Creek Village; the views are breathtaking. Despite our shower adventure, this is definitely a campground I would stay at again.
Stayed three nights with a large group in two adjacent sites. Close to restrooms with flushing (!) toilets that were well maintained picnic tables and firepits and tent platforms made it a very nice stay, super fun campground
If you are looking for a quiet relaxing camping trip, this is not the place to go. If you are looking for 800+ miles of OHV trails, this is the place to go! ATV's, dirt bikes and side by sides galore! It is a fun place to camp if you are expecting the noise. Duck Creek Village is very close to Bryce Canyon and Zion
