About Upper Six Mile Ponds Campground

Upper Six Mile Ponds Campground is just ten miles from Sterling, Utah at an elevation of 8,400 feet.  A mixed forest of spruce, pinyon, juniper, fir, and aspen covers the area, offering partial shade.  Summer wildflowers and wildlife are abundant. Canoeing and fishing for trout are popular at the ponds.
Many people enjoy the solitude and primitive experience of camping away from developed campgrounds and other campers. "Dispersed camping" is the term used for camping anywhere in the National Forest outside of a designated campground, and is generally allowed anywhere unless posted otherwise. Many people drive out on Forest Service roads into the woods and find spots that meet the needs for their camp.
Dispersed camping may mean no toilet facilities or treated water are located nearby. Typically, dispersed camping is not allowed near developed recreation areas such as campgrounds, picnic areas or trailheads. Some dispersed sites are provided with fire rings and in those cases please use them as they are designating that area as the spot to safely have a campfire. Finally some dispersed sites have a designated footprint for use. If you see a site with any type of barriers or fencing please respect these areas by not pulling motor vehicles or OHV’s. They are there to preserve the surrounding forest making it enjoyable for all.
