Great site in the woods about 45 mins from Salt Lake City. Stopped here on a road trip when the first campground we stopped at it was closed for the season.

Tall trees provide some privacy, so even though sites are close together it doesn't feel like it! Camp hosts were super nice and sold us firewood. The bathrooms have flush toilets and are super clean. If you can get a site next to the stream, would recommend, as it's lovely and has a nice soothing bubbling creek sound. Had perfect service here on Verizon, enough to work for several hours via hotspot on my laptop.

Did a lovely hike nearby at Silver Lake. Were tons of other hikes nearby with waterfalls, lakes, etc etc. There is also a cute diner nearby. Definitely recommend this spot!
