“Typical USFS campground”

Reviewed Jun 09, 2017

Overall Rating

This is your run of the mill USFS camp with a narrow loop circling through the trees, offering a collection of various sized back ins and a few pullthrus, many suitable enough for larger travel trailers or campers, although the campground road may be a little tight to navigate for larger rigs. Some of the sites are downright huge. Spaces are far enough apart to provide privacy and the trees give an extra barrier.

I arrived on a Thursday afternoon and the camp was nearly full with mainly tent and car campers, so I thought it was going to be very loud seeing all the tents and kiddos running around, but it was nearly silent at night, which was pleasant.

It's a very pretty campgeund, with a creek and excellent views or secluded spots. Unfortunately, it's a little trashy. My firepit was full of used paper towels and maybe even a little toilet paper...some had blown around the site and required a little picking up. The fire pit at the site next to me was full of eggshells. One further down had full trash bags in it. Host site was messy with a rundown camper and various bottles of condiments stewn about.

My site was not level front to back or side to side but was just long enough so I didn't have to unhitch. My site was pea gravel, not paved as the previous review states.

Also, note that the previous review based their Verizon signal on booster speed. Without a booster, you will experience short periods of slow 4g, paired with long periods of no service. Also, this campground provides very little sun, if any, depending on your site, so solar is difficult.

There is a large pull off just before the campground that seems like a better bet, if you are ok with free range cows roaming your site. You can boondock there with a forest adventure pass and it is in a large clearing with lots of sun and privacy.

Overall, it's fine-- great for families camping in tents-- didn't suit my purpose very well. Would have been better off not paying $15 and just using the 'rest stop' (aka flying j) in Scipio.

“Beautiful and Peaceful Campground”

Reviewed Jul 27, 2016

Overall Rating

Although this is just a few miles off the US50, you feel like you are really in the wilderness. We stopped here for just one night while making our way across Utah from Nevada to Colorado. It was such a pleasant surprise to find such a scenic spot to spend the night.

On a weekday in July we found the campground completely empty and had our pick of spots, all of which are paved and fairly level. The sites are well separated; some have amazing views of the valley floor, other are densely wooded. We picked a site at the top of the campground that had wonderful red rock views and was huge so we could just stay hitched up overnight.

With a booster we had 2 bars of Verizon LTE, consistent enough to stream TV.
