Having grown up near here, I love going back to camp at this site. It had flushing toilets, a fill station, and a dump station. The trees are very thick, so from many camp sites, you can’t see the adjacent one. There are nearby trails and a great view of Stillwater dam.
We have stayed here a couple of times now. Usually there are spots available any time. They have great restrooms and the river is a 2 or 3 minute walk from any of the spots. We will be back here again.
I really do feel this is one of the most beautiful places in Utah. It was so beautiful when I visited it. It felt like you were staying in the middle of a great valley. Super beautiful mountains on each side. It was fantastic.
It’s a beautiful campground that my family and I have been going to the last few years. It’s quiet each campsite has a nice separation. There’s hiking trails, and fishing. The whole area smells like butterscotch and vanilla due to the Pondarosa Pines.
