Overview

Forks of Huntington Campground is located in beautiful Huntington Canyon, along the Huntington Canyon National Scenic Byway on Utah Highway 31. It is situated at an elevation of 7,600 feet. Many recreational activities are available, including hiking, biking and fishing.

Natural Features:

Thick stands of pine trees within the campground offer plentiful shade, and the Left Fork of Huntington Creek runs through the campground. The canyon area has numerous lakes and streams, vibrant summer wildflowers, colorful fall foliage and abundant wildlife.

Recreation:

The Left Fork of the Huntington is a Blue Ribbon fishery, offering high quality fishing for brown, cutthroat and rainbow trout. The creek joins the main Huntington Creek just below the campground.

Popular activities enjoyed by visitors to the area include fishing, hunting, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, rock climbing and scenic driving.

The 4-mile Left Fork of the Huntington National Recreation Trail begins in the campground. It is open to hikers and horseback riders. The 10-mile Fish Creek Trail, for hiking, biking and horseback riding, also begins nearby.

Facilities:

The campground offers five single-family campsites, as well as one large-group campsite that can accommodate up to 40 people. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided throughout the campground.

Garbage collection facilities are not provided, requiring visitors to carry out all trash. Roads and parking spurs within the campground are dirt.

Nearby Attractions:

The Huntington Canyon National Scenic Byway is part of the 86-mile Energy Loop. It offers stunning mountain and lake views as it tops 10,000 feet in elevation.
