Located in Mantua, UT, a small mountain valley in Cache National Forest on the Wasatchback of the Rocky Mountains of Utah. A ten minute walk to Mantua Reservoir for ice fishing in the winter, kayaking, boating, water skiing, fishing in Spring, Summer, & Fall. Pickleball courts and Sydney's Grill are a 10 minute walk away. Mountain biking, four wheeling, side-by-side adventure right outside your RV door to Willard Peak and the beautiful Northern Wasatchback. Use of my huge lawn (next to the field where you park) for lawn games (provided for a small fee), and my in-ground fire pit are available for your enjoyment. Friendly dogs are very welcome - my white Lab is always looking for new friends! 3 miles down Box Elder Canyon to two large grocery stores, Walmart, gas stations, restaurants, and gyms. One hour to skiing at Snow Basin (home of 2002 Olympic downhill), Powder Mountain to the south and Beaver Mountain to the north. World's largest game bird refuge and museum 10 minutes west down the canyon. Utah State University 30 minutes to the north and Weber State University 30 minutes to the south. Box Elder Creek is a 5 minute walk into Box Elder Campground, the poppy hill (2 weeks in June), and wonderful hiking opportunities. The valley was settled by Danish immigrants in 1862, and the property you will be on is owned by a descendent of the original settlers. See more info about Mantua in the link below.Located in Cache Natl Forest, 10 min off of I15 in Box Elder Canyon - a great spot to take a break from your travels or stay a few days to play and relax. Mountain wildlife share your space. Take your toys directly into the mountains to Willard Peak, or through Wasatch Back to Eden, beaver dams, wildflowers, mountain valleys on your way. 1/2 mile to reservoir; small beach/pier/boat dock. One adult and one child kayak available to rent, and lawn games for a small fee. 5 minute walk into BE Campground, where Box Elder Creek meanders through the trees. Next door on the adjacent property (my home and yard) a pergola with seating and electrical outlets is available for guests' use for a fee.  Reservations with the host is required on a first come first served basis. You also have access to a large in-ground fire-pit and patio table on adjacent property where owners home sits for a small fee, and it can also be reserved on a first come first served basis for your group. Also, most Thursday evenings there will be a fire in the fire-pit that is free to all guests on the property. Come meet your hosts & camp neighbors! Check with host about creative possibilities to use the field and adjacent residential property for group camping reunions, weddings, celebrations of all kinds. Other amenities are available. Mantua is a sleepy little town of approximately 1400 people, and Rasmussen Ridge is located on the southwest edge. It is a beautiful walk, run, or bike ride around Mantua Reservoir (5miles), where you can sink a worm from the side, troll for fish on the lake, waterski, canoe, kayak, and sunbathe. Our little valley is surrounded by mountains on all sides, and the nights are so dark you can see the Milky Way and the constellations.

Just a beautiful place to stay. This place is a hidden gem in the foothills about Brigham City Utah and walking distance from Mantua Reservoir.

Thank you Kristine!
We loved camping with our trailer on Kristine’s property. She responded promptly and was waiting when we arrived to advise on local places of interest and tasty eateries. The wonderful layout of the property showed that she cares about her campers having a beautiful campsite. There was a local road within earshot but the daytime traffic was less noisy than most campgrounds with generator use. Nighttime was very quiet. We’ll definitely stay here again.

Peaceful backyard camping
Such a sweet couple. They had a wonderful dog named Zoey who they call ZoZo, which is what I call my partner who’s also named Zoey! Loved the view from the far part of their yard. Thanks for the hospitality and stay!
