We love exploring as a family
Family fun

This campground is run by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is open to church members and their families. There are two large camping lawns you can rent out large enough for family gatherings. The cost is $100/night but you take the whole lawn, which is quite large. There are two swimming pools which are fed by the hot mineral springs. One of the pools has little fish that like to come kiss your feet as you sit. They have tubes you can use to float down the river. Bathrooms and changing rooms are available but I didn't see a shower. No bikinis are allowed or other swimming attire showing the females midriff. If you can't make it to camp, they have open swim on Thursdays for $3 /person. The facility burned down some time ago and the church has been working hard to get it up and running again. Great fun place to bring your family and have a reunion

Quiet and beautiful with dark starry nights

We love camping here and come often. We would usually visit between the months of March-Early November. Spring and fall bring sunny days and cool evenings and mornings. During the warmer summer months we take to the water. The temperature is always a bit cooler than in town.  There are no fees but also no amenities. So please, if you pack it in then you need to pack it out. Bring plenty of water for drinking and cleaning. Make sure to plan ahead for bathroom/ shower needs as those are not available. If you follow the river you can find some spots with good shade. We usually find a spot near to the river in lower sunset, some spots around the bends are deep enough to swim. There is a lot of hiking nearby as well as horse trails. The kids really enjoyed hunting for crawdads, watching the tadpoles/frogs, and the cows as they would cross through for water. The nights are dark and allows for an awesome night of stargazing.
