Nestled way up in the Wasatch Mountains in a scenic alpine basin is Bountiful Peak Campground. Part of Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, this pristine campground offers the quintessential camping experience for anyone who loves spending time in Utah's great outdoors.
There are several local trails to explore, giving hikers, bikers, and off-road vehicles the chance to immerse themselves in nature. The dense forest of aspen and conifer shelters summer wildflowers and a diverse array of wildlife, while there are also excellent views of Great Salt Lake and the nearby Wasatch Back on offer.
The campground features 25 single sites, 4 double sites, 2 group sites, and 4 picnic sites. Vault toilets are provided along with picnic tables and fire rings. During peak season, single sites are $18 a night and a double site will set you back $35 a night.
However, there are a few key things to be aware of before you visit. Electrical, water, and sewer hookups are not available at Bountiful Peak, and as there's no water, you'll need to be prepared to bring your own. Access to the site is via a steep, twisty dirt road, so large vehicles and RVs are not recommended.
Leashed pets are permitted in the campground, so you can stay a while here with your canine companion. Of course, you'll need to make sure that your pet is well behaved and that you clean up after them whenever required. Remember, this area is home to some potentially dangerous wildlife, so following these rules is important for your own safety. By taking care of these simple responsibilities, you'll help ensure that beautiful campgrounds like this one continue to allow you to camp with your pet.
Bountiful Peak Campground offers the paw-fect base from which to explore Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest and its many attractions. If you're seeking a pristine nature escape you can share with your furry friend, add this spot to your list of must-visit destinations.
