Wonderful Alpine Camping

This is primitive. Not much going on at this site except a place to pitch a tent. I am used to camping at a lake or river, as I like to do a lot of fishing. There is none of that here. This is a high alpine meadow, and it is gorgeous! You cannot get enough of the fresh air, flowers, views, etc. I am not used to just camping out in meadow, but I am going to do a lot more of it at this campground.

Nice camping for trailers.

The campground is pretty, but it is not for family camping with a tent. This campground has pull-through areas for people towing camping trailers, but not much for those that want to set up a full-size tent and lounge around outside. The nearby creek is pretty, but you cannot so much as wade in it without facing prosecution and a $1500 fine. I would not camp here again.

First to Review
Absolutely Gorgeous!

This campground is way out there… in that it takes about 3 hours along a one-lane broken-down road to get there. And it is worth it. Such a nice area, and a nice campground. Every site was spacious and clean. The bathrooms were primitive, but clean. There is running water available, and places to put your trash. They even have a collection bucket for old batteries. Lots of wildlife around, and a great view of Lake Edison. I would go here again in a heartbeat.

Great Group Sites

This is a great campground for large groups. Located just below the Spruces campground, this one is ideal for groups like our church group when we hosted a daddy/daughter campout. This campground is also right at the trailhead for Donut falls, a really easy hike for all ages with a really nice waterfall at the end.

So Pretty

I live in Salt Lake City, and this was a bit of a drive for me, but well worth it. This campground is right along the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway, and the area is gorgeous. The campground is right along the upper Provo River, and is just a short jaunt across the road for some good fly fishing. The campground hosts were the best I have ever seen. They went way above and beyond. Their site was all decked out with crafts and activities for the kids, including scavenger hunts for the different flora and fauna in the area. I can't say enough about this place. I will be back, for sure!


This campground is gorgeous! for $26 a night, you cannot beat it. There are nice flush toilets, fire rings, picnic tables, large areas for putting up tents, etc. There is an entire loop of the campground dedicated to trailers and RVs. It is deep in Big Cottonwood Canyon in a very forested area with a beautiful little creek running right through the center of the campground. We saw a moose hanging out in the meadow nearby, and there are all sorts of smaller wildlife abounding. The campground hosts were friendly, everything is clean, and there are lots of friendly campers to let the kids run around with. I would go back here any day.
