Shady maples forest the campground, offering an escape from the summer heat. Grasses and wildflowers dot the landscape, providing pretty color in the summer months.
Logan Canyon National Scenic Byway: From historic Cache Valley on the west, this byway winds northeast through the national forest to Bear Lake spanning the Utah/Idaho border. Along the way, 500 million years of geologic history unfold in the lower canyon's deeply incised walls and fromations laden with fossils. In autumn, the colors are unparalleled.
ADA Access: N
Friendship Campground is situated underneath a large grove of Maple Trees that provide the most beautiful scattered sunbeam shade you'll ever see! There are 5 individual sites that are Walk-in only (not reservable) and 1 large group site (reservable).
All the sites are located right along the river. The fishing is pretty good, and the hiking is great. Just to the north of the campground is a trailhead for Richards Hollow where you can see a very pretty waterfall.
All the sites have picnic tables, fire pits, and decent space for larger tents. I wouldn't recommend bringing large trailers… the loop the campsite is located on has a rather tight turn that can be difficult for the larger trailers to navigate.
Overall, this is a great family site if you're looking for a fun riverside getaway.
This is a paid campground, but it is in a beautiful canyon with amazing views! We brought our dogs and they loved it. There is a small stream that pools up right by the campsites. The road getting there is bumpy, but doable with a small car. (We brought our Honda Accord)
