Sitting on a high desert bluff that towers above the spectacular Flaming Gorge Reservoir, Mustang Ridge Campground is part of Ashley National Forest. If you want to explore the diverse range of attractions and experiences on offer in this scenic corner of Utah, and enjoy some pet-friendly camping along the way, this gorgeous spot is well worth a visit.
Located at an elevation of 6,300 feet and nestled among a thick forest of pinyon pine and juniper, this pretty campground offers seclusion and easy access to stacks of outdoor activities. A boat ramp is situated adjacent to the campground, providing the perfect opportunity to get out on the reservoir and go fishing, water skiing, or just sightseeing.
If you're looking for a more peaceful spot to paddle a canoe or kayak, you might prefer to head half a mile away to the Sunny Cove Day Use Area. Hiking and rock climbing are also available in this area, so you're well and truly spoiled for choice when deciding what to do.
The spacious and pet-friendly campground includes several family campsites, two of which are accessible, while there's also one group site that can accommodate up to 40 people. Sites have their own picnic tables and campfire rings, and showers, flush toilets, and vault toilets are also available.
Campsites in Mustang Ridge Campground start from $25 a night. Please note that while sites are reasonably private, there's limited shade cover available.
If you need a dump station, you can find several at nearby sites such as at Antelope Flat, Deer Run, Firefighters, and Lodgepole. Drinking water is available in the campground from mid to late May until mid to late September.
Finally, make sure you follow all posted rules regarding pets. This means keeping your furry friend on a leash in the campground and remembering to clean up after them at all times. Following these rules is essential to ensure that scenic campgrounds like this one continue to remain pet-friendly.
