Absolutely awesome spot. Hosts were really friendly. Stayed in my pop up camper for a night and there was tons of space for pop up and our site (A1) was the best in the campground, I think. It was secluded with tons of trees. Not all sites had a lot of tree cover. It wasn’t right off the river but it was still only a 30 second walk to the river. There were fire bans in Utah but because of the type of fire set up on concrete and built in fire places, we were able to have a fire all night which was awesome. Also my buddy is a professional singer and brought his guitar so I’m impartial. We had such a great time!!
We camped here in July, I definitely recommend going beforehand to scope out which site you would like best and reserve it online because this place gets all booked up! Close to the river and nice roomy site with a table and fire pit. Bathroom within walking distance!
We have been to South Fork 3 times and plan to go back many more times. There are single amd double sites. The single sites are roomy. Each site has a picnic table and firepit. The grounds are well maintained and the camp host has always been friendly and helpful. There are trails you can walk and it’s right along the rivers edge which is nice and cool in the summer. The best part is a few miles in either direction will get you to water for boating or kayaking.
This campground much like the others in this canyon is situated along the banks of the South Fork of the Ogden River. Before you get to Causey Reservoir and Weber Memorial Park, this is the biggest campground you'll encounter. There are 35 single sites @23$ and 8 double sites @46$. Some campsites are reservable and some are walk in sites. A picnic table and metal fire ring is at each site along with vault toilets and drinking water scattered throughout the campground. The campsites in the teens seemed to be the closest to the creek
As for activities to do in the area, there are plenty of options! Right by most of the campsites you can fly fish or set off on a tubing adventure down the Ogden River! It is required that you have a life jacket before setting off. If you're looking for bigger accumulations of water you can either head back down canyon to the huge Pineview Reservoir or head up canyon to the steep walled Causey Reservoir!
Great campsite. The host was very nice. It gets packed during the weekends so plan ahead! Right along side the river too
This is a favorite campground of ours! Camp Host very friendly! Access to Ogden River for tubing! Causey and Ouneview very close! Site 1 has plenty of shade but many sites here do not.
Cool cave, river, hiking, wildlife. Pet friendly. Kids love it here.
