Camp and Stargaze at Burriston Ponds
Utah › Burriston Ponds
Added by Eric Bennett
Free campsiteHaving lakeside views out of the tentGreat for swimming, especially with the awesome rope swingGreat stargazing and warm water!
Pulling into Mona Reservoir you will see campsites, which you can set up at for free. There are some trees to hang up a hammock and have a relaxing afternoon and evening.
The bonus is that there's an awesome rope swing, which makes this a great place to cool off during summer. Make sure to look up at night because the milky way will be poppin' off since you are far away from any light pollution.
To sum it up, this s great place to swim, chill, make a campfire, cook some hotdogs, stargaze, and pass out.
