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.

Great Options next to the Reservoir

This is a huge campground that sits on the south side of Pineview Reservoir that has a multitude of options for camping and day trips as well as a marina.  The first Forest Service Campground you'll encounter heading up Ogden Canyon and the only major campground on the south side of Pineview.  There are 58 single sites for 28$ as well as additional tent sites that are cheaper for 21$.  There are also 9 double sites and 4 group sites along with parking for boat trailers and day use for picnic and beach access.  Every site has a metal fire ring and a varying amount of picnic tables.  There is a small convenience store kin the reservation hut as well as vault toilets and drinking water spigots spread throughout the campground.

For fun things to do in the area look no further than Pineview Reservoir just to the north!  From chilling on the beach to fishing from shore or swimming.  There are many options for easy, cheap recreation direct from camp.  There is also a boat launch ramp right in the campground that makes it easy to spend the day motor boating around the reservoir.  Just down canyon there is also a decent amount of decent climbing on some good to high quality quartzite rock.

Dispersed camping at Ruth Lake

Camped here early last October and was surprised to end up having a very snowy adventure! The hike in is less then a mile and offers incredibly views. Makes for a very easy backpacking trip. Multiple dispersed campsites are easily identified by fire rings. High altitude means extreme weather is common so prepare accordingly!

Hidden Gem

My family and I have been coming here for years. It has a lot of trailer spots that are almost all pull throughs and have hook ups. It’s fun to bring kayaks and float the river. The people who manage the camp ground have done a wonderful job.

Hidden gem

This camp site surprised me, good location for driving to various hikes in the uintas, a nice river runs along several of the camping sites. Worth checking out. I stayed at site 10 and it was close to a water faucet which was nice.

Favorite spot in the Uintas

Title sums it up! The wild yellow waterlily‘s are perfect💛 the camp site is with-in walking distance of tea cup lake which has great fishing, and a cute board walk around part of the lake. Star gazing was exceptional🌌! I would recommend staying at camp sites 5-9, my personal favorite is number 7

Happy camping 🏕🏔

Charming and Fun

This is a great camp site for the Unitas. We had an awesome site, #7 which backed to the small lake between Lilly Lake and Teapot Lake. This is a awesome fishing spot with access to three major lakes from the camp.

The camp site is small and traffic is not busy even on the weekends. But availability is very iffy. It took us a couple times to finally score a place here. We loved it and plan to return.

Great site, poor experience with people

There are numerous campsites spread around the lake and many are right on the water which is awesome. From the reviews here and a few other sites I expected this area to be much less crowded due to the tough access road to get to the lake. Luckily, the sites are decently spread out so it is somewhat secluded. 

However, we had a group camp right on top of us at 2:30AM. They parked and setup a tents 20 feet away from out firepit. They had no intentions of leaving and were quite rude. Dog was off leash when we woke up and was barking at us while they did nothing about it and continued to sleep. Swearing at their children and disrespecting the land. Luckily another site opened up later in the morning so we packed up and moved. 

Again, this area is beautiful with nice campsites, just don't expect it to be as secluded as the other reviews state.

Local fav!

This place is favorite spot to camp if I’m staying local. There are so many spots, and they are all very private. The Camp hosts are great! There’s a hidden waterfall you can hike too, and a river runs through the park. It’s a must!

Nice place, terrible people...

It’s great camping and trails.  Too many people with disrespectful children riding through camps like they’re on a race track, throwing dust and rocks very near camp.  It’s really too bad the younger generation don’t know how to raise their children to be considerate of others, but then again the parents aren’t much better, shooting high powered guns near camp sites.  My advice would be to go to Whitney on the off season, when the pansies and their kids might get a little cold.

Great Spot!!!

We were there Thursday through Saturday and had a great time! Be warned that the bathrooms smell pretty strongly. Our site (62) was right next to it and we could smell orders from our camp.

The sites themselves were really nice. Plenty of space for parking and tents, and every spot had a picnic table and fire pit. 👍🏻

Fun and close to other recreation.

A very clean and very convenient campground. Tons of trails nearby and being on the reservoir is great for hot days. Fishing was a blast! Will definitely be back.

Escaping summer heat

This campsite is well over 9000 feet very beautiful lots of trees and foliage very much enjoyed our two night stay out of our van Nice secluded lots four wheeler trails lots of hiking Beautiful view of the mountains

Great Car Camping

This is a great car camping location in the Uintas. There are about 20 camp sites, we stayed in spot 10 and loved it! It had perfect shade and morning sun. It is a little far from trail heads or lakes but good for families who want to car camp. We would definitely return and hope for our exact same location.

Inaccessible

This campground is not accessible by vehicle.

Real Woodsie camping

This is a great campground especially for off road vehicles. Our family has been going there for years and it is one of my favorite spots in the uintas. The bugs are minimal.

East Canyon State Park

Great family place , large tent sites , bathroom , beautiful views, and clean water .

Great weekend campsite!

Great campsite. The host was very nice. It gets packed during the weekends so plan ahead! Right along side the river too

One of my new favorite places

This is the second year in a row that we have stayed at this campground and it has become a new family favorite. We even brought a couple neighbor families with us this time. The only reason I won't give it 5 stars is because of the inconsistency with the water and the hassle to haul in water or travel down to the boat dock to refill any water jugs.

We left on a Saturday and the reservoir was pretty packed with SUPs, Kayaks, Canoes, etc. Earlier in the week (even Friday) was less crowded. We took inflatable Kayaks with us this year and they were a ton of fun especially for those that wanted to enjoy the water without being freezing cold.

Very clean and quiet

I've never been to this part of the country before, and in planning my trip the best case camp spot was quiet solitude and good fishing. However, knowing I wouldn't be able to arrive until close to dark decided the smart move would be to reserve a spot rather than hunt around for an open place to camp.

This is how I found Stillwater. What I expect was not what was there. First, each site is spaced far enough apart to feel some privacy. Sure, it's not camping in the wilderness, but it's a really good compared to others. Second, the restrooms looked and smelled like they were built yesterday. I'm not sure I've ever been to pit toilets that were so clean. Credit to the camp hosts for their work. Third, well, the view from my tent was amazing. Stillwater Fork was right there 12 feet away and I fell asleep to the sound of rushing water. Life doesn't get much better.

I can't wait to come back and explore the area some more. And stay here, of course.

Awesome waterfront campground

This was a really nice place for only being 40 mins from the city. Good beach front not a far walk from our campsite. Lots of trees to hang your hammocks up on. If you have some water toys it’s awesome because you can anchor them on the shore or the dock.

Beautiful Landscape

This location was recommended by my girlfriend Andy I'm glad we went. There were a lot of bugs, but if you're prepared for that, it was a great way to beat the heat. (This was on July 15th) 70s during the day, 40s at night. The drive going through the forest was awesome as well. The sites are well kept and they're not packed. Great place to visit.
