Note: 25 feet is the maximum rig size. This place is stunning. Located near the high point along Mirror Lake Highway, Moosehorn Lake sits with Bald Mountain towering 1,500 feet straight above it on one side and this campground on the other. Reservations go very fast during the peak summer season. My site was right on the lake. No cell signal but an excellent location to explore the High Uintas. There are many Forest Service campsites along Mirror Lake Highway as well as opportunities for boondocking.

I just wrote the following for another site:

Utah's Uinta Mountains are a little known gem (little known--I suspect--outside of Utah). They are the only East-West oriented mountain range in the lower 48 and they are Utah's highest mountains. Mirror Lake Highway cuts through the western Uintas from Kamas, Utah to Evanston, Wyoming (the mountains themselves lie entirely in northern Utah, just south of the Wyoming border). There's a ton of camping up there including in numerous Forest Service campsites (limited for large rigs) and boondocking (fine for rigs of all sizes) all along Mirror Lake Highway. The side road to Whitney Reservoir had the most promising boondocking spots I saw in stunning high mountain meadows. The reservoir itself isn't so great in an area filled with beautiful--and natural--mountain lakes, but the route to Whitney Lake was filled with fantastic boondocking sites suitable for groups. Cell service was almost non-existent everywhere up there, though I had a weak signal on the road to Whitney Lake. Camping is best from late July through early October. Winter arrives by mid to late October. Mirror Lake Highway itself is often not open all the way through the mountains until June, though parts are accessible year round either from Kamas or Evanston. Lots of Jeeping opportunities in the summer and outstanding x-country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter.
