Hidden gem

This camp site surprised me, good location for driving to various hikes in the uintas, a nice river runs along several of the camping sites. Worth checking out. I stayed at site 10 and it was close to a water faucet which was nice.

Great Car Camping

This is a great car camping location in the Uintas. There are about 20 camp sites, we stayed in spot 10 and loved it! It had perfect shade and morning sun. It is a little far from trail heads or lakes but good for families who want to car camp. We would definitely return and hope for our exact same location.

Shady as the name implies but close to the HWY and a dry creek

This would be a much nicer visit during a wet year or during spring for that matter. It is close to the Hwy so you get traffic noise and the Provo is even farther away than it is at Soapstone but only $2 cheaper. Also while there I ran into quite a few cows that were moving about the campground. While this happens at many of the campgrounds at the south end of the Hwy I feel there were an exceptional amount of cows at this campground (maybe because it was so shady?) So other than having shade (which place doesn't in the Uintas) this campground is one to skip, at least this year, or at best a last resort. To stay here you'll have to pay $21 a night for the campground and for the Mirror Lake Hwy Rec. Pass that is $6 for 3 days and $12 for the week. There is also 1 double site here that is available for $41

Near the Fairy Forest

This campground has a paved drive loop, as well as paved camp sites. There are trees off of the road side, but not a lot around your camping area. There are pit toilets, as well as fire pits. It cools off nice in the evening
