This was a great site for big groups. A lot to do, and beautiful as well. No shortage of trees and wildlife! Would definitely stay here again! I also love how close it is to the Donut Falls trail!
Jordanelle has quickly become an annual tradition with the family. All siblings, nieces, and nephews, grandparents come for a couple of days and we have a great time. We use tents and RV's, but there are also cabins to rent as well! Depending on what spot you get, there may or may not be a lot of shade. Come prepared with coverings and it is great. The water is wonderful, and all of the kids and dogs love it as well! I recommend!
I come to this campground every single year and have for the past 9 years in a row (14 trips total). This campground has all the amenities you may need or want! Tent camping, cabin, RV, etc. And I have done them all there. There is a laundry room, showers, outdoor activities like biking, ice cream, mini-golf, playground, etc. I typically rent a cabin nowadays. I have stayed in the one-bedroom, and the two-bedroom deluxe with kitchen and bathroom/shower. Both are great! I highly recommend coming to this campground and cannot wait until I am there again this year!
This campground is only 6 miles from the West Entrance.
This was such a fun day that we spent up here. However, there wasn't a lot of shade at the day site, and it got so hot without trees that we ended up having to leave around 1 or two. Still fun!
I had heard amazing things about Spruces for years. I was required to take a week off work, so I booked a site here. And I was not sorry at all. This was late June. It rained and snowed for the first couple of days, but that didn't bother us. It is absolutely incredible here. The campground is gorgeous! We had some really irritating people next to us that came later in the week. But that can't be helped. Plenty of hiking trails, and just walking the road around the campground was our favorite!
With covid last year, I just needed to get away. I went in June, and it was lovely. It was chilly for sure, but it was so nice. It was quiet, tucked away from anyone. Didn't really see anyone for the three days we are there. Our site was next to the river, which really helped drown out all other sounds! I have already booked a site for this year! The campground is beautiful, and we had a lot of aspen trees at our site. Beautiful!
A few years ago, I looked for a campground that could accommodate larger groups (12 people). This campground quickly became a favorite and an annual tradition for us all! We get a double site every year, and this is by far one of my favorite weekends of the year. The toilets are flush toilets, not vaults. It is close to Brighton and Silver Lake. The campground is GORGEOUS and so quiet. The hosts are so kind. My nieces and nephews look forward to this trip every year, and you will too!
I decided last minute to book a campsite at the Trial Lake campground. It had been years since I had visited the Uintas. I was lucky to get a great spot fairly close to the lake (not a view). The hosts were kind and kept their distance with covid. The campsite was clean and beautiful. We had visits from animals, was generally quiet (minus a couple that fought at 2am). The weather was incredible, just what I hope for in a late summer trip. Warm during the day (short sleeves, etc.) cool at night. I will recommend this campground, and will definitely be going back. The other great thing, it isn't fair from other sites and so close to many trails!
