“Pretty campground nestled in the hills. A river runs through it.”

NIce Campground overall. Several campsites have river access to a small river (about 2 feet deep in most places). Several swimming holes that have been made over the years by circular rock dams at each campsite with river access.
However B41 does not have river access as it is up against the bottom of a cliff (however it is a very private campsite).

The bad: Utah Recreation company (contracted to maintain the campgrounds) is not maintaining the gravel road through the campground so lots of deep potholes all over the road.
Also, the trees and bushes have not been trimmed back from the road and they are thorn trees with about 1 inch thorns!
The campsites will require some amount of skill to back in to with a larger trailer as the turns are tight, there are boulders marking campsite boundaries, and there are overgrown trees and bushes complicating the turns.

Utah Recreation should do a better job.

Verizon had 1 bar of service using a WEBoost. Tmobile had nothing.

Cute towns of Eden, Ut and Huntsville, Ut are very close and have grocery, restaurants, library and a laundry.

We camped over Fathers Day weekend so maybe that explained all the large happy multi generational groups sharing sites. This campground has the largest sites in a string of National Forest campgrounds. The rates for the different campgrounds vary from 12 to 20 a night plus the odious 9 dollar online reservation fee. Reservations are recommended for summer weekends. An Interagency Pass will save you half price on the camping fee.
Site 18 was at the end of loop a and close to the toilets. The stream behind it shielded us from most of the street noise- all the campgrounds in this area are on a thin strip of land between the river, steep and tall hills and a busy road. We didn't mind the noise but it was present all night. Each site has a large cement fire circle with no grill, a metal table for portable gas stoves and a large picnic table. 8 people easily moved around on site with no crowding at all.
There are other sites with better tree cover over the picnic table in the morning but we loved the space we had on this site. We fit 2 large tents on level ground with plenty of separation and there are many mature Cottonwood trees to support a hammock.
Nights were chilly for June due to the humidity but that helped us sleep. We also noticed that the local Sheriff's department keeps a very close watch- we saw a car patrol the grounds 3 times before we went to bed at around 11.
Camp staff did not bother us about additional fees despite having 2 cars onsite. The parking for this site will fit a small RV but the loop itself is tather tight and watch out for the littles- they were running everywhere. Iloved the easy going atmosphere and Huntsville is gorgeous. The drive to get to the campground was worth the effort. The town has many small businesses that sell everything you may need from sleeping bags to inner tubes- don't forget to bring your bathing suit.
The river is perfect for swimming even if the water was freezing cold due to snow melt. This campground is worth paying a visit. There was no cellphone reception within 15 miles arriving to the campground or 45 heading further into the canyon. The hills are alive with the sound of people talking to each other live.
