The length indicated for this site is 35 feet; our camp trailer is 25 feet and I really don't think you could get anything longer than that in here. So don't be misled by that number.

With that out of the way, WOW, this is a gorgeous site! Truly beautiful. We decided to come stay here because it was fairly close to our route, and it didn't have a price registered for it, so we thought it was free. Turns out, it isn't free (it's $12 a night) but it's so beautiful, we're going to stay two nights instead of one like we'd originally planned. It's worth the money!

It's a fair drive outside of Oak City, UT; the road winds for a while and you'll think that you somehow took a wrong turn or something, but nope, you eventually get there. So don't take any side roads that "might" be it – there's a very prominent sign for the campground (see pics). You are gaining altitude as you drive to the campground, so if your truck has a hard time with hills, this won't work for you, but it is otherwise easy access (nicely paved roads the whole way).

There are 19 regular camping sites and 4 group campsites, made for big family reunions or Boy Scouts or maybe a Young Woman's conference (this is Utah, after all). The regular camping sites are split into two groups; you'll find the first set when you first come into the campgrounds by going across the bridge. You must go right (it's set up as a one way). There's a large grassy area in the middle of this circle, and when we were here, there were placid black cows grazing and just hanging out (see pics).

Site #1 is where we're at; you can see in the pics that there's enough room for us to back the trailer in and then park the truck off to the side. If you continue around the circle, virtually all other sites (#2 - 8) are only good for tents or maybe an R-Pod / tear-drop camper.

Once you're almost back around to where you began, you'll see there's a large gravel road that leads away from the main campground. The big group sites are here, along with bathrooms, but if you follow that road, you'll find sites #9 - 19. Again, it's set up as a one-way loop; sites #18 and 19 would work well for a 25-foot camper or maybe a smidge bit larger, but most of the sites are again only good for tents. If you were to hold a family reunion up here with a main RV and then tents scattered around, this would truly be ideal for you. I absolutely would NOT drive a Class A up here.

There are water spigots scattered throughout both camping areas; you are NOT allowed to hook up to them using a hose (see pic). You can, however, fill up a bucket and then carry the water back to your RV to refill your fresh water tank. There are also three vault toilet bathrooms throughout the area that you can use that are spotless; every site has nice metal picnic tables and fire pits; and there's a little creek running alongside the camping areas that is absolutely beautiful.

Without our cell booster, I couldn't even send a text; once the cell booster was set up, though, I had full LTE access through both AT&T and Verizon (no Sprint signal up here). Awesome internet now that I have my booster on!

All in all, an absolutely gorgeous area; I'm glad we took a chance on it, even though it ended up not being free. :)
