Description

If you consider yourself a jack of all trades, Porcupine Campground is the first place you should pitch a tent. Located in St. Charles Canyon, this area is the ideal spot for just about every activity under the sun. Jet ski, boat, or swim around the expansive waters, then bring your camera for some stunning wildlife photos. With fishing, hunting, and berry picking on the menu, you can truly taste the fruits of your labor. If you're interested in seeing a historic sites or checking out some interpretive trails, they're not far away, either. Two words for this place: da bomb.

This is a great campsite. You're close(ish) to Bear Lake's North Beach, but far enough up in the mountains that you get cooler temperatures, a little privacy, and some fairly dark skies.

We've stayed here twice—once in Site 13, and once in Site 14. All of the sites are fairly isolated and well-maintained, but Site 13 offers a little more privacy and is the better option. Mosquitoes are bad in the early-summer, but are almost non-existent by early-August. There's plenty of deadfall, so don't bother bringing firewood.

The CG is about 15 miles from North Beach, and ~22 miles from Garden City, UT. Minnetonka Cave is just a few miles above the campground, and is a nice diversion if you're too sunburned to go back to the beach.
