Overall Rating

Butterfly Lake is one of the smaller (of many) campgrounds available along the Mirror Lake Highway of the High Uintas. It's situated above 10,000 feet! We found an open site at #10 the weekend before Memorial Day and it was one of the best sites we think in the campground. The "backyard" opened up to a nice outlook where you could see the mountains off in the distance (highway right below though). It's a forested site and plenty of trees to partially block out your neighbors. No hookups. There are a handful of sites which are very close to Butterfly Lake itself (#1, 2, 3, 4, etc). #1 was probably the least forested and kind of perched up on a knoll with great views of Hayden Peak (slight walk in site). Its also a day use area so be prepared to share the lake with day visitors. Easy to access with a car as Mirror Lake is paved. You can walk down the highway just a bit to the Highline Trailhead where you can go into the heart of the Unitas, or a short hike over to Mirror Lake itself.
