A Campground To Remember!

Ferron Reservoir is one of Utah's best kept secrets compared to many of the crowded campgrounds in the High Uintas. 

Ferron sits right on the top of the Manti-La Sal mountain range that divides the state in two. You can get to the reservoir from either side of the range, and the roads drivable for just about any vehicle.

The campground has vault toilets, fresh water, fire pits, a couple-dozen individual sites, 1 group site, and a gorgeous view of the reservoir from just about any location. Feel free to bring your canoes or kayaks and spend the day paddling around and fishing. The fishing is great! 

We take our entire family every year for our Family Reunion Camping Trip! It's one of those campgrounds that our kids will remember forever.
