National Forest

Fishlake National Forest


Frying Pan Campground is located on the Fishlake Scenic Byway in central Utah, just 3 miles north of Fish Lake, at an elevation of 9,000 feet. Visitors enjoy boating, fishing and exploring local trails.


Fish Lake is Utah's largest natural mountain lake and covers 2,500 acres. It is famous for its 20-40 pound Mackinaw lake trout. Anglers also enjoy fishing for rainbow trout and splake. Boating, canoeing, swimming and scuba diving are popular activities. The scenic Lakeshore National Recreation Trail extends around the eastern side of the lake. Hikers are rewarded with stunning lake views after climbing 900 feet in elevation.


The campground contains one group site that can accommodate up to 100 people, with picnic tables, a campfire ring and large parking area. Several single-family sites are available as well. Flush toilets and drinking water are provided. Roads and parking spurs are paved. Three resorts are located in the Fish Lake Basin, offering camping and fishing supplies, RV parks with hookups, cabin and boat rentals, marinas, gas, restaurants, groceries, laundry facilities and showers. The resorts are open from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Natural Features

The campground sits on a sagebrush-covered hillside above the valley floor and offers views of the north end of Fish Lake Basin. Aspen trees forest the site, providing limited shade.

Nearby Attractions

Johnson Valley Reservoir is just north of Fish Lake, offering additional fishing and boating opportunities. The 5-mile Pelican Canyon Trail begins nearby at Bowery Creek Campground. It leads through meadows and dense forests of spruce, pine and aspen as it climbs to the 11,633-foot Fish Lake Hightop.

Excellent Campground when closer Fish Lake campgrounds are full

We had a hard time finding a camping spot in June. Fish Lake campgrounds fill up so fast. Frying pan was convenient and well organized. They have tent and RV spots, water, picnic tables, and fire rings. There are not many trees for coverage from wind and I did not find wood for purchase directly at the campsite but there are small convenient stores about 7 min away around Fish Lake.

Scant on Amenities, But the View is worth it!

Went here over the weekend (car camping), and it was very nice! The view of the lake can't be beat, but the only on site amenities are flush toilets and water - for anything else like showers, etc, it's about a 10 minute drive in to lakeside or fish lake lodge.
