Camp Maple Dell is an ideal place to camp!

If you don't want to drive for hours to unplug and enjoy nature, Maple Dell is just 5 miles up the Payson Canyon, has a lot of leafy trees for shade, most campsites have a pavilion and picnic table. It's a local favorite and a hidden gem. In the summer it's occasionally used for Scout/youth adventure activities, so if you have large groups interested in a little adventure, you can customize a package with the camp organizers. #worthit

Shakin Bacon Park Campground!

Perfect Base Camp for all the awesomeness of the High Uintahs! Beautiful campground with lakes, hiking, and many other activities nearby. Water is only on May-October so plan accordingly. Also, this other link lets you reserve large group pavilions for camping as well: https://www.hipcamp.com/utah/utah-national-parks-council-campgrounds/large-group-pavilion-bacon-park

Idyllic campground - leafy, shady, ponds...beautiful!

I love Camp JJ! Easy distance to civilization, fun things like a real train caboose, and a green, leafy, beautiful area to set up camp! The ponds just add to the peaceful nature that surrounds this camp. (Fishing is catch and release only).

Beautiful views, desert-like area.

This campgroudn has beautiful views. It is a dry area and hot mid-summer, but good base for ATV, bike, and hunting areas. No ATV/bike riding or hunting on the campground - just a good base camp for those types of activities. It's a developing camp, so while it's free-range and fairly primitive camping, the current construction is eventually expected to provide potable water, campsites, flushing toilets, and showers.

Flat, open great space for camping

This campground provides a great place for groups and a central location for a lot of awesome things in Southern Utah. Each campsite has a firepit and picnic table. Nearby you have the convenience of civilization (St. George), the fun of Quail Creek Reservoir State Park, the world-class beauty of Zion National Park, and more. Also, if you're like me, you'll appreciate the showers, toilets and porta-pottys. No trowel or packing out your used toilet paper required. Also, if you have the group/budget for it, there's a large enclosed pavilion with full kitchen.

Idyllic, leafy, beautiful campground.

Camp Maple Dell is a beautiful camp. Leafy trees, great area. Yes, it's set up for Scouts, but when it's not Scout week, the camp is available for others to enjoy. Activities aren't available, it's just a campground outside of Scout weeks. But buildings and customized bookings are possible if you have group/budget to request additional facilities/activities (i.e. pavilion with full kitchen, lifeguard to use the lake, climbing directors to use the climbing wall and aerial challenge course, etc).
