About Jordan Pines

Jordan Pines Campground is located in scenic Big Cottonwood Canyon at an elevation of 7500 feet. Salt Lake City is conveniently close. Visitors enjoy hiking, biking and fishing.

Recreation

Hiking and mountain biking are popular activities on area trails, including the Donut Falls Trail, which begins nearby. Fly-fishing is a favorite activity on Big Cottonwood Creek.

Facilities

This group campground is a perfect location for family reunions, church outings and company picnics. It offers four overnight campsites and one day-use picnic site, all of which contain picnic tables, campfire rings and grills. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. A volleyball court and horseshoe pit are available, but campers must bring their own net, ball and horseshoes. Roads and parking spurs are paved.  

Jordan Pines Campground only accommodates groups and therefore requires a reservation.

Natural Features

A forest of shady pines and aspens covers the campground, which offers panoramic views of the surrounding peaks. Vivid summer wildflowers are abundant and autumn leaves put on quite a show.

Nearby Attractions

Big Cottonwood Canyon is a beautiful area known for its soaring peaks, pristine hidden lakes and cascading streams. Numerous hiking and mountain biking trails are in the area. Rock climbing is a popular activity as well.

Solitude Mountain Resort is 4 miles up-canyon, offering scenic chairlift rides, hiking, a few dining options and a challenging 18-hole disc golf course.

Silver Lake is another mile past Solitude. Fishing and canoeing are popular activities. An easy trail loops around the small lake.

A big ol honken moose boy

Wildlife 10 minutes away from the city. What could be better? We just slept in the car right outside the campground and went exploring on some hikes above the campground. We found another abandoned mine and just had a blast exploring the Wasatch mountains. I highly recommend this campground and plan on coming back for night getaways.

Great Group Sites

This is a great campground for large groups. Located just below the Spruces campground, this one is ideal for groups like our church group when we hosted a daddy/daughter campout. This campground is also right at the trailhead for Donut falls, a really easy hike for all ages with a really nice waterfall at the end.
