First the good things: there was water available via a spigot and garden hose, also the tent site was level, no rocks, and had about 80% grass coverage. The tent site had some shade from short , brush like trees. .
Now the negatives:
-this is NOT a campground contrary to the name of the place “Uinta Springs Campground’, I saw neither springs nor a campground,, what it is , is a private residence with a big yard, and the ‘camp’ area is at the edge of the yard next to a horse pasture fence. Also I had trouble using the directions to find the place,, I thought it was unusual that the next door neighbor, 100 yards away, had no idea where ‘Uinta Springs campground’ was and never heard of it.
- a ‘ports-potty’ was available. I used it once and was stung by one of the wasps inside. The wasp nest is inside the porta-potty , a small blue box at waist level just inside the door has the wasp nest with what looked like 20 wasps
- the ‘host’ (possibly owner of the residence) said upon my arrival ’Oh your early’,, it was about 4:30pm, and then ‘I am getting ready to start a ceremony’. So immediately I felt like I was intruding. The ceremony appeared to me to be a Native American sweat lodge ceremony. A fire for heating rocks and sweat-lodge were next to the area of my camp,,,, I felt like an intruder and very uncomfortable for the two or three hours the ceremony was held. I tried hard to not disturb the ceremony.
I was thankful for a place to put my tent ,,, but it was an uncomfortable situation due to being so near the ‘ceremony’. The physical condition of the camp warrants a rating of 2 stars out of 5. I won’t be going back. I will not recommend this ‘Campround’ to anyone.

Very nice spot in the grove. As some other reviewers have noted, it is not back country isolation but it was certainly off the main roads enough to be quiet and comfortable. Couple of large cast tables and set of swivel chairs were great for having dinner and keeping your tent set up and breakdown organized. Forrest was very nice and helpful. Definitely follow his written directions to camp. The hipcamp site has a dropped pin that definitely is not correct.

Forrest's campsite is gorgeous. It was magical seeing the horses running free, watching a storm roll in, seeing the sunset on the hills in the distance, and watching stars that night. The location is both easy to find and fairly secluded, although we could hear cars on the road through the night. Forrest wasn't there, but he stayed in touch via text, and the campsite was right at the end of the driveway so it was easy to get ourselves set up.

Great spot for tent camping or if you have a camper van. Forrest’s horses will come to greet you when you arrive and the tree grove provides ample shade. We were there when the trees were blossoming and the smell was unbelievable! Such a nice place to rest your head after a long day of hiking. Really enjoyed the wildlife and waking up to the sounds of birds, all while being close to civilization. If your looking for a traditional campsite in the middle of the woods, this isn’t it. But I recommend staying here if you’re looking for a relaxing getaway

Beautiful site and property! Forrest was there to greet us and we had such a wonderful evening listening to the outdoors and the sweet horses in the pasture. Would absolutely stay again, it was perfect for us blowing through town on a long haul.

Forrest is such a nice host with an amazing piece of land. He graciously allowed us to walk around his ranch and meet his horses. The firepit was great, portapotty clean. It was quite windy/rainy during the night but the view in the morning of the mountains was spectacular. I would definitely come back
