This is a great spot to pitch a tent close to the creek or take your RV. If you are planning on camping on the weekend plan on a crowd because it is so close to AF. Week days are the easiest to get a spot. Call ahead and reserve a spot for a weekend.
All spots have a nice fire ring pit, nice picnic table, bathrooms, and lots of shade and room. Most are creek side or close enough to the creek that you can hear it. You are also close to the road so the creek sounds drown out the road sounds.
This is really close to tibble fork reservoir, or timpanogos cave National monument. Both spot are only a 5 minute drive.
As far as wildlife there are deer, elk, big horn sheep and black bear. Even being so close to the city you can and will see lots of wildlife.
I have stayed here a bunch of times like I said mostly on the week days because the weekends get so crowded from what I can tell there is no bad spots in this campground. There are lots of big rocks the kids can play on good hikes close by, lots of great climbs and the creek if fun to play in or fish.
I took the scouts up to this spot and it is a great place to camp with lots of room. Make sure you get camped and in because they lock the gate coming into campground at 11PM and you have to hike in. Really nice campsites with really nice bathrooms and picnic tables. There is a huge spot of grass that you can play sports or baseball on. Can't remember the site we had but there was a huge rock that was fun for the scouts to climb on. Really nice spots with lots of trees and shade. This is really close to some really good hikes like Stewart Falls, and tibble fork reservoir just minutes for your camp site. In the summer call ahead because this area can be busy.
This is a GEM if you like to not see a lot of people and love the outdoors. This is a first come first serve camp area and there is no picnic tables and few out houses so please pack out your garbage and keep this area beautiful. There is some amazing fly fishing in the creeks and lakes in this area. The dirt road is well maintained and you can get a car or truck or trailer in no problem. Lots of amazing trails for side by sides and 4 wheelers.
This is a nice little Gem. It has tent spots for $20 a night, RV hook ups and nice little cabins for $45 or a deluxe cabin for $65 a night. There is a store on site and it is still close to town. Picnic tables, and fire pits at each spot and lots of shade. This is a really nice camping spot. Close to Capitol Reef or the Boulder mountain and also lots of great jeep trails up Sand creek road.

This is a primitive spot no tables or fire pits. You can camp in the lava tube they are warm in the winter and it is a fun place to explore. This is close to the hot pots and we stay here in the fall or spring. It can get crowded so be prepared not to camp in the caves on a busy weekend. If sleeping in a tent make sure you bring a sleeping pad because the ground is really rocky.
This is a primitive style campground on the Thousand Lake mountain range. You can look over and see into the desert on one side and see Fish lake mountain range on the other. We use this campground during the elk hunt and there is still lots of room. there are picnic tables and fire pits and out house style bathrooms. No hook ups but you can't beat the view of this camp site.
This is a great place to pitch a tent or come up and stay for the day. The only bad part about this camp site is all the highway noise. It is close to the Provo river and there is lots of shade so that is nice. Great place to have a camp fire and cook some S'mores. The bike path is close so bring your long board or bike and go for a ride. This is withing walking distance from Bridal Vail Falls so that is a great day hike and see the falls. Also great fly fishing in the Provo river so do yourself a favor and bring your fishing gear.
So this is on the Sheep Creek canyon loop which is a 2 lane road all paved that goes through some of the most amazing views around. There are lots of trails and lots of caves you can hike to and explore. If you like to explore caves this is a really awesome place. We camped here on the way to Flaming Gorge and it in an amazing place. The camp ground is nice they have outhouse style bathrooms and picnic tables and lots of trees and close to the creek so that is relaxing and helps you fall asleep fast at night. We stayed in June and there was lots of space and hardly no one on the road up the loop only saw a few other cars. This drive is worth going to go camping there. Red rocks and beauty all around.
We stayed here on a scout camp out for a couple of days we stayed in a group sight # 10 and it had 2 picnic tables and offered lots of room. We had 6 tents set up and there was still lots of room. There was plenty of parking we had at one time 2 cars a big van and my truck and drift boat and had no trouble with parking in the double spot. We were right next to the camp host and next to the bathrooms with running water and hot showers.

This is in a great location if you are going fishing in the Green river or on Flaming Gorge.

You are only a couple of minutes drive to Flaming Gorge Lodge if need a hot meal or fishing equipment they have a great fly shop, store, and cafe. If you forget any food items like ketchup they sell everything at good pricey. Plus it's a great place to get more ice and a coke.
Fire pits with a nice heavy grill on them. We used it to cook steaks and they were excellent. Also helpful when we cooked crawfish one night. The camp host sells firewood if needed. I was able to try out my new Grubsticks and made some awesome s'mores #grubstick, #Ilovemynewgrubsticks, #bestsmoresever.

This is a really nice campground it is primitive with some out houses and picnic tables. You are in the quackies and in the trees. It is higher elevation so make sure you bring your coat. We stay up here quite often during the elk hunt and it is quite busy in the fall but there is shill plenty of room for the kids to bring bikes and 4 wheelers. Dogs and fires are welcome in fire pits. So don't forget to bring the smores. The road getting up to the camp ground is dirt and sometimes can have ruts and is bumpy but has really good access and is well maintained.
This is a great place to build a snow cave or do some winter camping. It gets cold so dress warm in the -20--40 range. There are lots of great places to drive up to and snowboard to the roadway. There is no camp site so you need to pack in all your stuff. If you are into winter camping it is amazing.
