I have stayed here a couple times. We like campsite #38 because it is a double spot that can fit 3 or more cars or a truck and boat or large RV or trailer. It has a few flat spots for tents, and 2 tables and a nice fire ring. There are also lots of aspen trees that are nice for hanging a hammock in. The double spot is $46 a night and single is $23
Aspen grove is a beautiful camp site with lots of Aspen trees and in a valley it is a 5 minute walk to the marina of Strawberry. you also can launch a boat at the marina and you are only 5 minutes from the damn, were we caught some 22+ inch cutthrouts and other trout at the damn as well as a few smaller fish.
We caught around 250 crawfish that we cooked and ate at out camp site that night as well as cooking some steaks as well we had a surf and turf it made for a yummy dinner.
There is a water spiket at each campsites and bathrooms are close with running water. There is also a big dumpster to get rid of your trash. There is firewood you can purchase from the camp host. The camp host is really friendly and helpful.
I have stayed here each year in September and there is always spots open. It is better to call ahead because it can fill up. This is a beautiful campsite when the leafs start to change color. This in one of the nicest places to stay in Utah. https://www.recreation.gov/camping/campgrounds/232390
This is a nice place to camp. Only about a mile from the fifth water parking lot and a few miles hike from the hot pots. Really good fishing in both the fifth water river and Diamond Fork. The camp sites are first come first serve. They are big sites and can hold a few tents each. Their are nice picnic tables and fire rings a pit style bathroom is available across the river.
Lots of amazing scenery around. Great hikes, great fishing, amazing places to ride horses, or just amazing views.
There are lots of trees around for shade and oak brush. I have seen elk, deer, moose, and black bear in this area so bring a camera and don't leave food in your tent.
This is a great place to camp. You are really close to fifth water and the start of the trail to the hot pots. There is lots of big cotton wood trees for shade. The spots are big enough for a tent or RV. All spots have a nice picnic table and fire ring. There is bathrooms close and they are clean. There is a really nice river walk trail that is fun for kids and adults and the fishing is really good in the river that is close by. I have stayed here a few times and have never found a spot I didn't like. It can get busy in the summer so call or reserve ahead of time. there are lots of single sites for $24 a night or or group sites of $48 you can also reserve a huge group site with pavilion and up to 75 people for $145 a night which is awesome if you want to do a family party or reunion in an amazing canyon. https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/uwcnf/recreation/camping-cabins/recarea/?recid=9855&actid=29
The views are amazing lots of red rocks and cliffs to see. Lots of great hikes, the fishing for brown trout, and cutthroat trout in diamond fork river or the fifth water river can be amazing and you don't see a lot of anglers so that makes it way fun. If you stay here make sure to take the time to hike up to fifth water hot pots it is amazing.
There were some bugs but not to many to be annoying. I have seen snakes on some of the hikes so watch out where you step. I have seen elk, deer, moose, wild turkeys, and black bear in and around the area and campsite so don't leave food in your tent and clean up your campsite.
This is a very clean campground the camp staff takes pride in this campground. There is firewood available from the camp staff and fire is legal in fire pits.
Lots of shade trees make it lots cooler in the summer so you can beat the heat.
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 days to get a spot. Call ahead and reserve a spot for a weekend. I have stayed here a few times and really haven't found a bad campsite. They are all roomy and close to the creek.
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. Because this campground is so close to AF and Lehi it can get really busy in the Spring, Summer and Fall. Go mid week or book your spot in advance. This is a great spot to sit by the fire and beat the summertime heat in a beautiful canyon.
As far as wildlife there are deer, elk, big horn sheep, wild turkeys, squirrels 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 rock climbing and the creek is fun to play in and has some really good fishing, make sure to bring your pole or fly rod because there are lots of hungry trout in the creek.
You can get online reservations so that you know you have a spot at their website, it is better to book ahead on weekends or on summer holidays. Site start at $24 and go up in price. https://www.recreation.gov/camping/campgrounds/231935
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 God's country.
This is a fun place to stay when you want to go someplace close. There are lots of trees for the summer months and lots of shade. There are a couple good beaches. This is Utah's biggest fresh water lake. There are lots, and lot of bug so bring bug spray.
Awesome mountain views. Good fishing in the Provo river or lake fishing. You can build a fire and get firewood from camp host. There is full hook ups and also spots for a tent. Most spots have a pavilion and nice tables. Great bathrooms with running water. I can't remember which spot we stayed at but they are were really nice.
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.
The campground is a short walk or drive to the marina. We caught lots of fish and crawfish from the shore at the marina and the kids all had fun.
The camp sight has lots of Cider trees, and pine trees and amazing views. Amazing sunset and sunrises as well. There is running water for RV and lots of room. It wasn't full in June and there were still lots of places to camp.
This is in a great location if you are going fishing in the Green river or on Flaming Gorge. We were only 10 minutes to the put in of the A section and within walking distant to the marina for Flaming Gorge. We did the free dam tour it is a must see if in the area. 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 an amazing campgrounds. Nice big spots. I camped in June and there was only 2 people using the campground. There is water hookups with outhouse style bathrooms and picnic tables. Amazing views of Flaming Gorge resivore.
We saw big horn sheep right by camp. The look out is within walking distance and it is close to the trailhead to the loop trail. Tent camping and RV this is a nice set up.
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.
We stayed here before our river trip down the Nelchina river. Nice place to set up a tent and sit by the fire. Lots of wildlife in the area. Saw bear tracks close to tent so make sure you use bear safe containers and don't take food in your tents. Amazing views all around. The river is nice and has some amazing views.
Please pack out what you take in and leave no trace. This is a nice spot to camp with a picnic table and out house and great tent spots. Last time I camped here it was tent camping only.
This is one of the nicest camp spots around. Close to town but close to the boulder mountains. Full hook ups for trailers. Cabins you can rent, and tent spots. Best views in Utah. If you like red dirt this is the place to be. Close to Capital Reef or the Boulder Mountains. The owners are on site and are very friendly. Lots of stuff to do in Torrey. They have a store on site plus it is close to gas station if you forgot anything.
Make sure you reserve a spot of Apple Days in July it is a fun time to be in Torrey. Lots of stuff going on. This place is busy all summer long so it is best to call ahead. Spring and Fall is amazing in Torrey and is not as hot as the summer months.
This a an awesome camp spot that is right off of I-15 but feels like you are out in the wilderness. In the summer there are lots of bugs so bring bug spray. Pet friendly with a nice beach for the kids. lots of trees so you don't really hear I-15 noise. Full hook ups for trailers and nice tent spots. Bathrooms with running water and fish cleaning stations are really nice. Lots of picnic tables and pavilions to get some shade. Make sure you bring your boat and fishing gear. The whipper fishing can be fun.
I love staying here after fishing the green river. Its in between Little hole and Dutch John. I stayed on Memorial day weekend and there was still plenty of room. Lots of big spots for tent of trailers. Really nice tables and pavilions and nice bathrooms.
