North Fork County Park is ran by Weber County Parks and Rec Department. It's located at the northern end of beautiful and quaint Ogden Valley. We stayed here for a night in mid-June. The entire park is on the eastern bench/slopes of Ben Lomond Peak and surrounding peaks of Cache National Forest. There are 5 designated camping areas. $20 per night. There is no pay station, but the campground hosts come do their rounds a few times a day in their cart and you pay them. This is also a day use area as well.

Cold Water is along a creek and in a deciduous forest, creating shade for hot days. Sites are along the main (steepish) road heading to the trailhead. Not the easiest to pass other vehicles on these narrow roads. Cutler is probably the flatter of the five campgrounds, some tucked into trees, others in grassy areas with some views. Three large bowery (pavilion) areas with open grass are also here. Loops A, B, Corrals are in a scrub maple mixed forest with some sun and shade. Some sites have views of the near by mountains. Middle Gate is along a river right off North Fork Road, sites are kind of hidden in the trees, no mountain views, a creek is nearby. Mustang Flats sites are spread along a road, a couple had open fields. Lots of water spigots.
We stayed at Mustang Flat 1. It had some mountain views, a little treed area to back the trailer in (if you needed shade). Cars will drive past you on the dirt road, but we were not in plain view. We had kind of loud neighbors who proceeded to chop trees the entire time as if they were building a log home and a barking dog.
The campsite markers and water spigots are kind of old, dated and peeling paint. All sites have aluminum picnic tables and fire rings and are gravel/dirt/grass pads, some didn't look like they were used much.There are flush toilets. One restroom looked newer than the rest. The park is very undulating so lots of ups and downs with not a lot of super level areas. The dirt roads (with random asphalt patches) are suitable for a passenger car. Some sites looked like double sites, and there were a handful of pull through sites.
We'd stay here again because you can run/bike/hike to several trails right from your campsite. Even in the middle of June with beautiful temperatures, maybe half the sites were occupied. First come, first serve. Lots of mountain biking an trail running opportunities. Plus Ogden Valley is pretty! Listen to free music on Sundays at Snowbasin, paddle board on Pineview Reservoir, good summer stuff.
