Hades Campground is nestled in the scenic North Fork Drainage off Highway 35, about 17 miles from Tabiona, Utah.
The North Fork Drainage lies on the southern slope of the beautiful Uinta Mountains in northeastern Utah. Visitors enjoy fly-fishing and exploring the many local trails.
Fishing for brook, brown and rainbow trout is a popular activity on the North Fork Duchesne. Hiking, mountain biking, OHV and horseback riding trails are in the area.
The campground contains single and double-family sites with picnic tables and campfire rings. Some sites overlook the river. Vault toilets and trash collection are provided. Roads and parking spurs are dirt.
The campground is situated in forest of aspen, subalpine fir, lodgepole pine and spruce just above the North Fork Duchesne River at an elevation of 7,400 feet. The campground affords beautiful scenic views of the surrounding canyon and summer wildflowers are plentiful.
The North Fork Drainage provides access to the Granddaddy Lake region of the High Uintas via Grandview Trail.
Numerous sparkling lakes provide great backcountry fishing. Backpacking, hiking and horseback riding are very popular in this breathtaking area.

While I’m technically writing a review on hades, which seemed like a lovely campground that I did end up hiking through, I actually camped at a lake nearer to Hades, named Shadow Lake, a smaller, less known lake in the Grandaddy lake area, and I had a great time there. The authorities there were very informative and kind, and were very polite about telling us where we could or couldn’t camp. The only real complaint i would have, is the during the summer there are swarms of mosquitoes when you get closer to the lakes. I cannot describe how beautiful the view was with just our small group at the lake. I highly recommend it.
