Anglers, rejoice! Barker Recreation has not only two fishing lakes immediately available from the campground, but access to seven others just a short drive away. Pack that box of tackle and trawl for some trout to roast up on the grill later that night. If you like to fish off land, take advantage of the small boat launch, ideal for canoes and rowboats. At 9,000 feet up, this campground is one at which you should take it easy on the beer if you know what we're sayin'.

We stayed here for 3 nights in June/July. Very nice and comfortably cool at night and morning due to elevation, so you will need your sleeping bags. Water spigot had a boil alert because the water had not been tested. This was a hassle, because who wants to boil water using precious stove fuel, put it in a water bottle, and then hike in 90+ degree heat? If you drive in with your own drinking water, it is less of a deal. We expected drinking water from the website, and we had to find alternative spots for water. The fishing was very good. The drive was far from Escalante on a dirt road - good to have a pickup, but watch the dust in your bed even with topper - we used our tent tarp to cover everything.
