“This had a beautiful view ”

Reviewed Nov 10, 2018

Overall Rating

This was a great area other then the broken glass pretty much everywhere. It was cold but we had great views of the night sky and the city on the other side of the lake. This is just close enough to town to make it convenient without being in the town.

“Easy access, beautiful views”

Reviewed Nov 01, 2018

Overall Rating

The turnoff the main road is right at a Public Lands Sing, so easy to find. The road in is gravel and no potholes. We picked a spot nearer the lake and had grand views of all the wasatch mtns and Utah lake. The camp spot had trash lingered everywhere as well as the beach. It's obvious people come here to party and just trash the area. ... more

“This was a beautiful, free location ever looking Utah Lake and beautiful mountains in the background.”

Reviewed Jun 01, 2018

Overall Rating

We arrived on May 31st 2018 with the rain storm coming in and strong winds. We found that some of the sites that people previously stayed at work closed off to motorized vehicles. Our 29 foot class C RV made it along the gravel roads easily. We were closer to neighbors than expected since most of the sites near the water were closed ... more

“Great views, easy accessibility ”

Reviewed May 31, 2018

Overall Rating

As described in previous feedback, it gets a bit windy at times. Not much trash when we got here.

But the views across the lake at night are great.
Thanks Utah.

“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

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
