Natural Features

This shaded campground is set back off the main road for privacy. Dense stands of aspens shade the campground, and pines, sagebrush and wildflowers dot the landscape. Evenings in this area are cool.

Nearby Attractions

The Rock Creek Trail begins just over a mile away and connects with an accessible, paved interpretive nature trail in Yellowpine Campground.

The Rock Creek Trail provides access to the High Uintas Wilderness, where hiking, backpacking, horseback riding and backcountry fishing are very popular activities.

Upper Stillwater Reservoir and Lower Stillwater Ponds are nearby, offering fishing for brown and rainbow trout, swimming and picnicking.

Upper Stillwater is currently accessible only by hiking in. Numerous hiking trails lead into the High Uinta Wilderness Area from here.
