Ferron Reservoir Campground is located just below the Wasatch Plateau among spruce, fir, and aspens at an elevation of 9,400 feeet. Ferron Reservoir is adjacent, providing pretty scenery, canoeing, boating (small craft only) and fishing for rainbow and cutthroat trout. Skyline Drive passes above the campground on top of the plateau. Numerous ATV trails crisscross the area, offering exciting rides for all skill levels. Rush Pond and Willow Lake are a short drive east, both with more fishing and scenic views.This campground contains one group site that can accommodate up to 50 people and eight vehicles, with large picnic tables, serving and utility tables, a fire ring with benches, potable water spigot, and pretty lake views. Several single-family sites are available, with picnic tables and fire rings. Vault toilets and potable water are provided, but there is no garbage service. Roads and parking spurs are gravel.
We go here every summer for our family reunion. We get the group site plus a couple surrounding sites. It's great because there is a lot of room for the kids to explore. The sites have lots of trees and shade. Each site has a fire pit. The group site has a big one with benches around it. The bathrooms are clean and not too smelly. The lake is close enough to walk to but not too close that you need to be scared that the kids are going to sneak off and fall in without you noticing. The lake is really fun for the kids to hike around and fish in. It is also nice because there is a lot of open field area around the lake so the kids can run and be seem while the adults are fishing. The teens and active adults always enjoy hiking up the mountains. There are even some geocaches around if you are into that. The views are beautiful and there is fresh water at each campground. We always see deer on the drive and sometimes in the morning. There are a couple other lakes within driving distance if you want to try fishing or exploring those too. This is a great place to camp with your family.
