5 Reviews of Fred Hayes State Park at Starvation
Great lake to play at.

This is a great place for a campsite. There is a really nice pavilion and really nice bathrooms with running water and showers. Close to the boat ramp and the views are incredible.  Really nice paths to get you to the beach and the boat ramp.

Lots of fish in the lake and craw fish. The water is refreshing to swim, water ski, paddle board or any water sport.

Lots of tent camping spots with great views, Group sites and lots of trailer camping with hook ups and water.

Lots of bathrooms with running water and also a few pit style outhouses. This campground can get busy in the summer months. They take reservations so that is your best option.

Several lakeside Campgrounds

Mountain View Campground is above the lake, but a path leads down to the boat ramp and beach. Some bring boats and go fishing for brown trout, walleye, bass and yellow perch. There is a paved path for kayak or paddle board put in.

This and the adjacent Beach Campground have dozens of sites, most with water and electric hookups, shaded picnic tables and lovely lawns. Tenting however is relegated to gravel strips with the signage: No Tents on Lawn.

Restrooms include individual toilet/shower stalls as well as pit toilets.

In mid May there are no staff or hosts readily available, so Iron Rangers (metal posts) take your money. (Have cash or a check with you.) Fees are very reasonable and the views from the Mountain View back-in sites just above the lake are pretty darn nice. I painted a picture that includes the high Uinta Peaks as well as sandstone tablelands, the lake, the junipers, the sky… it doesn’t get much nicer.

Desert-like but awe inspiring

This campground, specifically, the tent only part is awe inspiring. You have the ability to camp super close to the lake and the pictures you can take are amazing. The bathrooms are quite spartan at the tent camping only site, but showers and flush toilets are available at the other side of the campground. Watch out for rocks going in, we got a flat.

Good for Families.

This is a lovely campsite for families with trailers. There are grass patches and you can see the reservoir right from your camper!

Good for early season camping

The campground isn’t well maintained. In the summer months this campground is way too hot but it’s great for an early season camp out. It’s over priced by a lot but worth it if you’ve just got to get out.
