Great amenities! Great place for a picnic.

Close to Favis and Weber counties, this is a great place for 1 or 2 night stays. We usually stay here every spring. The campground is a short walk to the "beach." There is a great picnic area between the boat ramp and campground. In the spring the water is right up near it. Later in the summer, the water goes down and there is a real nice beach for kids to play. Not many trees but pretty good campground.

Pretty place

We camped in the lower area and enjoyed it. Sites are close together though. Not much room to maneuver a trailer over about 25 feet.

Big Campground by the Creek!

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!

Nice River Access Right off the Road

A great medium sized campground that is halfway up the canyon on the way to Causey Reservoir.  It is tucked away from the road near the Upper Meadows Campground and therefore feels very serene next to the river.  There are 14 single sites at the typical for the canyon 23$.  and 3 double sites for 46$.  You can leave most of your main amenities at home as the campground is fairly well equipped with vault toilets and drinking water spigots scattered throughout the campground.  Each site also has a sturdy picnic table and a reinforced fire ring.  All sites are first come first served so get here early on weekends or holidays if you don't want a spot near the road at the other campgrounds!

Next to the Creek and set back from the Road

Quaint little campground situated on the south side of the river away from the road.  You can get to this campground by crossing the same bridge you would for getting to the Lower Meadows Campground and turning left immediately after the bridge.  There are only 9 single sites @ 23$ and most are close to the river.  Since they are all single sites big RVs will not fit but a small trailer probably will.  The campground has vault toilets and drinking water like the other CGs in the canyon as well as concrete fire rings, picnic tables, and a prep serving table at each campsite.

As for recreation in the area you have a choice between 2 amazing reservoirs!  There is the huge Pineview Reservoir that is good for boating and Causey Reservoir which is further up canyon and whose steep walls is more suited for deep water solo climbing!  There is also great fishing all along the river and someone created a little rock bath in the middle of the river for you to chill out in during the hot summer!

Plenty of Recreational Opportunities Next to Causey Reservoir

This is a Huge campground and day use area, with 3 group sites, that is right next to Causey Reservoir!  The park/campground is maintained by Weber County and has plenty of amenities along with additional bonuses at the group sites!  There are 58 single sites and 3 very large group sites.  There are picnic tables and fire rings at both of the types of sites but the group sites additionally have electricity as well as horseshoe rings and volleyball nets.  There are also flushing toilets and trash for the whole area.

For recreation nearby you have very easy access to the beautiful and sprawling Causey Reservoir with its steep limestone walls.  There is some high quality climbing nearby but most of the bolted routes are advanced to expert.  If you're just looking to have fun climb/scrambling around you can do some deep water soloing on the south side of the reservoir.  If you're looking to recreate in other ways you can also boat around on the reservoir and fish or fish from the shores or in the south fork of the Ogden River.

Great Campground that is also a Day Use Area

A campground better suited for large gatherings rather than secluded getaways.  It also serves as a nice place to have a picnic for a day trip as they also have spots specifically for that.  Other than the day sites they also have 9 single sites, 6 double sites, 1 triple site, and 3 group sites.  There's more non standard sites than there are normal single sites which gives you an idea of how many people would be in the area if everything were booked up on a busy weekend or holiday.  As with the rest of the sites in the canyon there are picnic tables and fire rings as well as vault toilets and drinking water spread throughout the compound.  There is also a trail system to the south that leads to river access for tubing or fishing.

Great Sites with Space between neighbors

While a little bit larger than its Upper Meadows twin it still sits on the south side of the river away from the road and therefore offers a bit of natural tranquility.  The campground is about half the size of the Perception Park Compound but will hold maybe 1/6 of the people so you'll have lots of distance between your neighbors.  You can choose from 17 single sites or 6 double sites @ 23$ and 46$ respectively.  Like the other campgrounds in the canyon the amenities are fairly primitive with fire rings and picnic tables at each site with drinking water spigots and vault toilets scattered throughout the playground.

For fun things to do in the area there is Causey Reservoir which is only a few miles up canyon!  It is a wonderful spot to kayak, canoe, or SUP around and also to access the cliffs for some deep water solo climbing!

Nice Pools to Soak in Creek, but Close to the Highway

The first campground you encounter while heading up canyon and also one of the smallest.  Right when you pull into the campground you see a large pole structure that has 3 info plaques about you guessed it! Magpies!  This is a good site for tents and for vehicles with small trailers as there are 6 single sites and 3 double site @ 23$ and 46$ respectively.  There are concrete fire rings and picnic tables along with 2 prep tables at each campsite as well as drinking water spigots and vault toilets throughout the campground.

For fun things to do in the area look no further than the large Pineview Reservoir!  Since the campground is low in the canyon it is easy to head the rest of the way out and make it to one of the reservoir's many marinas or beaches.  It's a great place to boat around and fish in or wake board or water ski in if that's your thing!  The beaches also make it easy to lounge about or fish from shore.

Nice Little CG close tothe Creek but also the Highway

Is the 2nd campground heading up canyon and is also the smallest campground in the canyon.  While this is the smallest campground in the canyon half of the sites in this little loop are really close to the road and therefore have a lot of noise associated with that.  The ones closer to the river, however, are great and have tent spots nestled away right next to the river.  there are 5 single sites and 1 double site with picnic tables, fire rings, and prep/serving tables at each site.  There is also drinking water and 2 vault toilets at the entrance to the campground.

For close recreation Pineview and Causey Reservoir are about equal distance and offer great respite from the sun with different experiences to explore!  At the mountain, cliff lined Causey Reservoir, kayaking and deep water free climbing are popular activities.  While at the larger Pineview Reservoir boating and water sports along with relaxing on the beach are more common activities, due to the gentle slopes of the reservoir.
