Aspen Forest is a campsite adjacent to a cabin in Pine Meadows Ranch in Coalville, Utah. The Tollgate Canyon exit is very easy to access and is right off I-80, just 10 minutes north of Park City. We are an ideal location for an overnight stop on your I-80 roadtrip! The campsite is located up a 5 mile, 15 minute scenic drive over groomed dirt roads in a heavily forested area. The property is in a semi-secluded area with adequate privacy. Most adjacent cabins are seasonal and not occupied. You'll have unobstructed views of the surrounding valley during the day, and a gorgeous star-filled sky at night on a 1/2 acre site all to yourself. We have a level driveway with adequate parking for cars, truck campers, Class B vans and camping trailers up to 12' in length. Because the road can be narrow in places with tight turns and few places to back out or turn around. Class A and Class C RVs are too long, and therefore not permitted. From May to October, the campsite includes a 12' x 20' level tent site with outdoor shower, power station, cooking station, BBQ equipment (charcoal and propane), shaded picnic table, gas firepit, bathroom tent with a free-standing flushing camp toilet, hand washing station and water faucet. From November to April, we winterize our tent site and outdoor shower, and transform to a car/van camping spot with outdoor water, power, camp toilet, and firepit included in the basic campsite rental. Please note that only AWD or 4WD vehicles with winter tires and/or tire chains as needed are permitted during this time of the year. Do you need help sourcing a reasonably priced 4WD vehicle or snow chains for rent to access the campsite? Please message the owner for assistance. We can provide the gear you need right at the base of Tollgate Canyon. Free amenities during the late Fall, Winter and early Spring seasons are the use of hiking poles, snowshoes, sleds and cross-country ski equipment in various sizes. If you'd prefer to have an indoor restroom, or access kitchen or entertainment areas during your stay, we offer these add-ons at very reasonable rates. Message us for more information. Depending on the season, an ATV with snow chains, full sized raft, SUP and kayaks - as well as vehicle mounting systems for all the gear, are also available for reasonable daily rental rates right on the property. Just scan the QR code with your smartphone. ATV renters will need to create an account on Yoodlize.com to obtain insurance and sign liability waivers. Did you forget something? As experienced campers, we've tried to think of everything you may need while enjoying the outdoors. From firewood to propane, marshmallows, a first aid kit, mosquito repellent, dog treats, charcoal or batteries we have those for you at low cost right at the campsite. Just scan a QR code to complete your purchase. If fine dining, high-end shopping and world-class skiing fits into your schedule, simply drive down the canyon for quick access to all Park City has to offer. Aspen Forest offers the best of both worlds! We look forward to ensuring you have a very enjoyable stay.***FALL UPDATES *** Aspen Forest is a secluded 1/2 acre campsite up Tollgate Canyon, just 20 minutes away from Park City and the I-80 Interstate.

Great experience!
Aaron was such a great host! We had originally reserved the outdoor campsite, unfortunately we got hit with some pretty rough rain. He was nice enough to let us rent out the cabin last minute. Very gorgeous cabin and extremely clean and organized. Wish I could have stayed more than 1 night here. I will definitely be reserving this in the near future.

Got there late to a sky full of stars. The outdoor shower was perfect after a long day of driving.

We will be back!
This was such a nice tent site! There was a shower, a pump toilet, a fire pit, water...seriously, Aaron's site has the works! My only complaint - I didn't book more nights!
