Campground. Located in Clear Creek Canyon and very easily accessed from Exit 17 on I-70. A small creek runs through the campground, there are no fish. This campground is operated under permit by the nearby Fremont Indian State Park. There are trails for hiking and access to ATV trails. Common vegetation in the area includes cottonwood, pinion, juniper and Ponderosa pine trees. This campground is open to ATV use. On the northwest corner of the campground is an ATV trail that will take you around the hill to access the Pauite ATV 01 trail. This trail leaves directly from the campground to the Main Paiute ATV trail in Dry Canyon, then south to Big Johns Flat and ultimately to Circleville. Big Johns Flat and Circleville are only accessible from this area from late July to the first of October due to snow drifts in the upper elevations. Another trail goes north to the Pahvant Range and Fillmore.
It's first come first serve. We called Fremont Indian State Park rangers to see if there were any open spots. They were very helpful and friendly. We stopped here on our way from Denver to LA, so it worked out perfect for us that it was located right off I-70, less than a mile off the freeway. But since it's right off the freeway, it's remote from everything like stores, gas stations, or restaurants.
The campsites were very clean and the toilets were well maintained as well. A lot of the sites were very close to the toilet. Each site was huge and had tons of shades. Also, each site is very far from one another, so you have plenty of privacy. Fifteen dollars for a site. A lot of the sites were for double RV occupancy.
There are lots of cool trails leading up to the castle rock perfect for a little hiking as well as water streams, all over the site. There's also the Fremont Indian State Park or Museum near the site to check out. Teepees were also available for thirty bucks for those who want some cool experience.
