We were introduced to this campground, located between Solitude and Brighton up Big Cottonwood Canyon, UT by some friends this last weekend. Bottom line? 5 stars!
What to expect: 41 developed campsites, including large group sites. Popular for fishing, a scenic stream, and scenic driving. Nearby is the popular hiking trail to Silver Lake. Other hiking/mountain biking trails and rock climbing areas are in the area.
Location: Go 16 miles southeast of Salt Lake City to Big Cottonwood Canyon, then 13 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon, UT 190.
I’ll keep it simple. Densely forested, quiet, beautiful, clean bathrooms with flushing toilets, and hikes perfect for kids. It fills up quickly in the summer so call ahead for reservations or talk to the camp host.
