Ferron Campground is located next to Ferron Reservoir. It sits just below the ridgeline of the Wasatch Plateau, at an elevation of 9,400 feet. Visitors enjoy fishing, canoeing and exploring many local trails.
Ferron Reservoir is adjacent to the campground, providing canoeing, boating (small craft only) and fishing for rainbow and cutthroat trout. Numerous off-road vehicle trails crisscross the area, offering exciting rides for all skill levels. Rush Pond and Willow Lake are a short drive east, offering additional fishing and canoeing opportunities.
The campground contains one group campsite offering lake views. It can accommodate up to 50 people and eight vehicles. Several single-family sites are also available within the campground. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided, but there is no garbage service. Roads and parking spurs are gravel.
The small reservoir sits in a scenic alpine basin. Spruce, fir and aspen trees dot the landscape, providing partial shade in the campground. Wildlife and summer wildflowers are abundant, and autumn leaves put on quite a show in the surrounding area.
Skyline Drive runs above the campground, along the top of the Wasatch Plateau for more than 60 miles, rewarding visitors with beautiful mountain scenery, glacial cirques, spruce-fir and aspen forests and numerous lakes and reservoirs.
The expansive Arapeen OHV Trail System can be accessed nearby and has more than 350 miles of designated, maintained trails suitable for all riding levels.

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.
