“Great free site”

Reviewed Aug 02, 2018

Overall Rating

One of the best free sites I've ever seen so close to a major population base. Definitely not perfect (no running water, soft dirt that can get everything quite dusty), but it's easily accessible in the summer months and has a beautiful view.

“An amazing spot”

Reviewed Jun 06, 2018

Overall Rating

I went here on a Tuesday night at the beginning of June. This is the best free spot that is close to SLC that I have found.

“Awesome campsite! Free! Beautiful views!”

“Noisy. Great view”

Reviewed Aug 03, 2017

Overall Rating

It was at 7500 ft so nice and cool. Great view of the mountains and easy to access trails. Downside was the noise from the road next to camp. It subsided after dark. There was a fee if you didn't have a Nat'l park pass.
