East Canyon State Park, Morgan, Utah

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in the Big Rock Campground, which is the primitive campground associated with East Canyon State Park, but on the far southern end of the reservoir. The sites are fairly large but the back-in driveways are quite short and the layout of the campground is a little odd so you can't get your rig next to the picnic table pavilion in all the sites and the neighboring tent sites are quite exposed. Each site has a covered picnic table and fire pit, but fire danger was too high to use the pits. We chose our site based on the apparent proximity to water. What Googlemap shows as a lot of water was, in fact, a little stream too shallow to launch our inflatable boat. I can only guess that the pictures online were taken in early spring when the water would be higher. We had a good time watching wildlife--three bald eagles, hawks, geese, pelicans, deer. There was no camp host in this section of the campground and no one even checked to make sure we were in the right site or had paid our fees. We camped at East Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rockport State Park, Wanship, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We enjoyed our two nights in Rockport, close enough to the city to arrive quickly, but far enough to feel peace. We had a drive through primitive site in Cottonwood that was so close to the trees we couldn't fully pull out a sitting area under the awning, but that did have a nice picnic area a feel steps down from the driveway. That area had a (dirty) picnic table and fire pit with room for a tent and privacy provided by a grove of trees on two sides and the river on the other. That grove of trees was also home to a yearling deer and a plethora of singing birds. Nature at it's finest! In addition to camping, we also did some fishing on the reservoir and enjoyed that even though the day was a little windy. Our only real complaint was that our neighbors started a blazing campfire directly upwind from us and we can to close up the trailer and stay inside because the smoke was unbearable. Not sure there is much you can do about that. I wouldn't recommend this site to anyone prone to falling as there is a fairly steep step-down from the asphalt down to the picnic table, but I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Rockport State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Little Valley Country Store and RV Park, Mantua, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is just a stone's throw from Mantua Reservoir, with easy access to the water through a chain link fence. The campground is very tight with sharp corners and very close proximity. I'm not sure how some people would be able to park if the sites next to them weren't open. We chose a site for 50 amps and used an adapter to 30 in order to get the size site we wanted and a concrete pad. The campground has nice trees and lots of grass and we really enjoyed our time before the place filled up. Most likely because of the proximity to the lake, there were lots of kids, and that meant plenty of noise in the afternoons but things quieted down at night. There were also a lot of dogs, as many as three per site, and these dogs used uninhabited campsites for bathrooms. It was pretty gross to see someone set up a tent where a dog had been just hours before. (Might be a good rule to add.) The Country Store has necessities and a small burger joint and the staff were very friendly. We camped at Little Valley Country Store and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

You can rent a fire ring from the store but they don't have them in place.

Willard Bay State Park, Cottonwood Campground, Willard, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

The campground is nicely laid out with plenty of space between spots and knolls and trees for privacy. Unfortunately, the noise from the nearby freeway is so bad that it makes hanging out outside rather unpleasant. We ended up shutting all the doors and windows and using the AC (since there are full hookups) just to have some peace. It's unfortunate, because between the beach, the boating, and the fishing, this could be a great place. We camped at Willard Bay State Park, Cottonwood Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Riverside Campground, Targhee Natl. Forest, Island Park, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Riverside campground is right on the Henry's Fork so you can hear the sound of the river at night. The spaces are nicely spaced and mostly wooded. The A loop is right along the river, and each site has a cemented picnic table area and a gravel area to pitch a tent. The campground was extremely well maintained, including the vaulted toilets and the host made regular rounds. Fellow campers were respectful of quiet times and keeping animals leashed. There were no ATVs (unlike campgrounds up the road) and the experience was very peaceful. Already making plans to return! We camped at Riverside Campground, Targhee Natl. Forest in a Travel Trailer.

It's just an hour to Yellowstone, but we actually preferred Mesa Falls, which is much closer.

Antelope Island State Park - Bridger Bay Campground, Syracuse, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Bridger Bay Campground on Antelope Island is a beautiful primitive lakeside campground, but the bugs will eat you alive. We've stayed twice in our new trailer and the first time were chewed up by gnats and the second time by deer flies. It's too bad because the spots are really tidy with covered picnic tables and separate grill pedestal right next to the fire ring. Most of the spots are pull through and separated pretty nicely. We had a beautiful view of the lake and the sunsets are truly spectacular. During the day there are numerous hikes in the area of interest to historians, archaeologists, geologists, and nature lovers. A particular treat are the bison and pronghorn antelope that are easy to spot. There are very few trees and the view of the night sky is awe inspiring. And all this just minutes from I-15 as it travels north through Utah. I'd really like to go again but I have to figure out how to handle the bugs. We camped at Antelope Island State Park - Bridger Bay Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Willard Bay State Park - Willow Creek Campground (no hookups), Willard, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Willow Creek Campground is super convenient, just right off I-15 near Brigham City, Utah. Unfortunately, that convenience to the freeway also means freeway noise all night long. The campsites are closer than they appear on the map and some parts of the campground (especially the interior sites) are actually crowded. We stayed in #28 which faced towards the lake, although we could not see it for the vegetation, so we didn't feel too crowded. Since we were facing trees and not other campsites, we had a reasonably nice nature experience. The site next to us had three tents with two dogs so there was more activity there than we really wanted. Tent sites and trailer sites are mixed together so we hated to disturb the tenters with our generator even though it was 100 degrees! The beach area was a fairly short walk away. We will probably look for something a little cooler and away from civilization next time. We camped at Willard Bay State Park - Willow Creek Campground (no hookups) in a Travel Trailer.
