5 Hidden Gems in Utah

From peaceful mountain-dwelling campgrounds that close for the winter’s heavy snows to luxurious city-based campgrounds, here are the top 5 hidden gem campgrounds of Utah.
1. Spruces Campground Situated midway up Big Cottonwood Canyon, Spruces Campground is tucked away amongst meandering streams, secret lakes, and beautiful rocky peaks. Large spruce and fir trees shade the camping grounds, giving you respite from the hot summer sun. Open from June 23 - September 24; Spruces Campground offers great outdoor activities. A particular highlight is fly fishing at Big Cottonwood Creek. While you can feel all the peace and tranquility of being in the mountain forest, you are still just a 30-minute drive away from Salt Lake City should you need to head into town.
2. Red Canyon Campground Red Canyon Campground is beautifully set in a ponderosa pine forest, surrounded by awe-inspiring pink Claron limestone formations. Located next to Scenic Byway Utah State Highway 12, you are right next to an extensive trail system, perfect for hiking, mountain biking, and even rock climbing.
3. Upper Onion Creek Campground At Upper Onion Creek Campground, you have stunning views of the Colorado River canyon and the surrounding red rock cliffs. But don’t just take in the amazing views- head down to the river for a guided rafting tour, or, if you’re an experienced rafter, make your own thrilling trip.
4. Bryce Canyon RV Resort Based in Cannonville, Bryce Canyon RV Resort is close to some fantastic attractions. Start with a road trip on the scenic Highway 12 through the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, enjoying amazing viewpoints and small towns to stop in for food and souvenirs. If you’re visiting in October, consider visiting the Bryce Canyon Astronomy Festival to learn more about the otherworldly stars you can see from the RV resort all year round.
5. Watchman Campground If you’ve been dying to get to Zion National Park to see the beautiful hanging gardens and amazing canyon waterfalls, Watchman Campground, sitting right at the south entrance, is the perfect place to stay. You’ll get to explore the wonderfully diverse ecosystem of the park right on your doorstep. You're also right next to the town of Springdale, which hosts concerts, festivals, and parades throughout the year.
