This place can be busy from Memorial Day through Labor Day, but right now in late September we're the only folks here for the second night in a row. We're only about 25 yard back from the gorgeous azure waters of Bear Lake. The setup is somewhat unusual in that the sites are all massive, built in pairs, and each has two picnic tables and one metal fire ring. It's $12/night dry camping for the first vehicle per site, and $10 for each additional vehicle as it's clearly built to have several RV friends camping together at each site. They're built like small group sites.

There's no shade at all as ground cover is limited to sagebrush. Our site is immaculate. At this time of year we have non-stop solar from 9:30 a.m. when the sun rises above the ridge east of the campground, to 7 p.m. when it sets across the lake. Verizon 4G LTE is 3-4 bars and a solid 36.1 Mbps down/44.4 Mbps up, unboosted.

In the 14 years I've lived in Utah the east side road at Bear Lake used to access this campground was somewhat narrow gravel. However, they're presently in the midst of a huge reconstruction project to widen, grade and pave the road that is to be completed by late October 2018. Although the road signs say "Closed - Local Traffic Only," campers in the lake's east side campground are considered local traffic and all three Utah campgrounds along the road are open.
