  • Tranquility and relax in the mormonske settlement originally. In the gifford House you can buy homemade pie or bread and make the river's picnic in stinu trees, or check out the forge or schools.

  • I don't want to give 5 stars because I don't want this gem to be found by more... but it truly is the best place to camp. Close to all the hikes. Walking path nearby. Cute deer walk through the campground, and beautiful orchards surrond you. You're in the shadow of the beautiful red mountains, and the stars at night are like no other sight out there. Close to a little store with the best pies to fill up on after a day of hiking.... but get there early, they always sell out fast! 5 stars for sure.
  • very nice campground. lots of trees and grass. no hook ups but the is a dump station and washrooms. lots of touristy things to do in the area. great hikes in the surrounding canyons. fantastic views. country store close by for great pies and breads. only problem with this park is, it's so nice we can't seem to get into it again, have tried for the last 3 years and it is all was full
  • Love this place and the price...! Can’t go wrong. Come at fruit picking time and you won’t go hungry. Pie next door is great too.
  • For the tent camper who wants some amenities and easy access to the most popular attractions in the park this is a great options. There is even a "tent only" area that is an open lawn with scattered cottonwood trees. The bathrooms in the middle of loop B are heated. If you go in the fall the orchards allow you to pick the fruit on the honor system $2 per lb.
  • Beautiful. Nice sites. Really clean restrooms. Cool spot!
