Like camping in Bryce Canyon without the cost!

Great red-rocked canyon like only God and Walt Disney could create! Friendly campground host. Firewood available.

Right on the lake!

There are no designated campsites. Find a suitable spot on the lake and set up camp! The amount of available campsites changes year-to-year with changes in lake levels. Although portable toilets are available, you are required to have your own self-contained unit if you camp on the lake. There is no potable water available, so bring your own.

Supplies are available at the Marina, gas station, and boat store; however, if you don't want to pay Park-Service prices, take the 10-mile trip to the Off Shore Marina outside the National Recreation Area.

Fishing, Kayaking, swimming, and other watersports available in Lake Powell right at your campsite!

Hurry! The secret is getting out!

One of the most scenic campgrounds in the Western United States. And excellent trout fishing, too! The eight acre Posey Lake is perfect for quiet kayak fishing among the pines and aspens. The campground has state-of-the-art toilets that are kept immaculate and oder-free. Potable water spickets are strategically placed throughout the campsites. Docile deer are common in the early mornings and the Milky Way makes its appearance after sunset. In the summer, look for the Big Dipper to descend over the north end of the lake. Campsites No’s. 11, 12, 13, and 14 have trail access to the lake (No. 12 is best). If you want seclusion, reserve campsite No. 16, although it is furthest from the lake. All sites come with a fire pit, barbecue grill “on a stick,” picnic table, and bear-proof food locker. The trail to the fire look-out is adjacent to Campground No. 14. It’s an moderately easy hike with some inclines and switchbacks.

Best Trout Fishing

Excellent uncrowded trout lake. Eight acres among the pines. Good sized rainbows and brooks. Occasional arctic greylings. Modern designed toilets. Potable water provided. Non motorized boats allowed on lake. Perfect for kayak fishing amongst the mountain paradise. Good base camp to explore Boulder Mountain, Escalante Grand Staircase, and Lake Powell at Hole in the Rock. But PLEASE don’t tell anyone! Let’s keep this gem a secret!
