“Easy, accessible, quiet at night”

Reviewed May 01, 2018

Overall Rating

It’s been a pretty easy stay here. First day was rainy but felt nice when the sun was out. Can get windy here and not many places to do your business if it’s during the day time but was able to quickly dip behind some bushes. This place was pretty heavily trafficked during the day. Lots of people coming in and out for only a few minute... more

This is a good free spot outside of Salt Lake if you're an optimist. When we arrived we were taken back by all the trash. After filling 2 trash bags full from around our site we decided that was good enough. The spots are spacious and has plenty of room in between. They stayed full the entire time we were there. There is A LOT of traf... more

“First night camping in our new RV”

Reviewed Apr 08, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a free spot to stop and stay the night. Beautiful view of Utah lake and the mountains beyond! We had just purchased our 30’ Motor home and wanted to take it on a shakedown run. We parked on the ridge closest to the lake and began leveling 3 wheels of the motor home. No perfectly level spots here. We used those lego block ty... more

“Easy access camping on Utah Lake”

Reviewed Oct 31, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here for about a week in late October. I liked it here. The camping area is around a 20 acre area with dirt roads zigzagging thru it. There is the main road that you come in off of the 68 that any size rig can easily negotiate. Then its just short of a mile of decent gravel road to the lake and the large open parking area. If... more

“It's an okay place to stay for free”

Reviewed Jul 13, 2017

Overall Rating

Places is an okay place to stay for free there is gun shooting in the background there in a day. When the wind picks up it's a lot of dust. And at night if you have the lights on you can hear the bugs all over it. If you swim in the water be careful water is kind of polluted.

“Beware the wind and garbage”

Reviewed Jun 11, 2017

Overall Rating

This will be a bit different. We didn't camp near the lake (bugs...experience avoiding them near Utah lake). I wouldn't call the area pretty, but it isn't ugly; it's desert, dry camping. Normally I'd probably bump this up a star--except for the wind and the garbage. We are LNT campers (Leave No Trace) - but despite the signs (eve... more

“Terrible for dogs ”

Reviewed May 31, 2017

Overall Rating

Sand burrs! They are everywhere! Our dog couldn't walk anywhere. The bugs are out of control. It was so dirty and full of trash. It looked great online but the reality is not so great. You are not close to the water for kayaking and its mucky and full of bugs. The only reason I give this 2 stars is because of the view was incredible.

“Gorgeous Lake Views”

Reviewed May 14, 2017

Overall Rating

We were going to stay here a couple of days as we headed up to Salt Lake City but once we got here we LOVED it and decided to stay almost a whole week. The views of the lake are fabulous, cell service is good, and it's a pretty quiet location. However the BLM area with lake views isn't huge and so it can get crowded, especially on week... more

“Great lakeside camping with beautiful mountain vistas”

Reviewed Apr 13, 2017

Overall Rating

We camped here for a week on our way north to a summer job in Yellowstone. Finding it is easy as it's the best road towards the east as you're coming down 68; with a BLM sign marking the location. You could fit any size rig here, and upon arrival we met a couple from Manitoba who were in a 40ft rig camped right on the ridge above t... more

“Good 2-3 day spot”

Reviewed Mar 28, 2017

Overall Rating

We chose to stop here while headed North through Utah. The location is easily accessed on 68 either from the north or south depending on which way your heading. We pull a 40 ft 5th wheel so big rigs can make it in. There are not many big rig sites, maybe 5 or so. Sites are not clearly marked. The road in appeared to be recently... more
