Overview

Joe's Valley Reservoir Campground is located in a high mountain valley next to its namesake, at an elevation of 7,000 feet. Visitors enjoy boating, fishing and exploring the surrounding off-road vehicle trails.

Natural Features:

Joe's Valley is situated on the Wasatch Plateau in Central Utah. Juniper, pinyon pine and sagebrush cover the area, and aspens and pines dot the surrounding hillsides.

The reservoir offers good fishing for cutthroat, rainbow trout and trophy splake. Boating, water skiing and canoeing are popular on the lake. A boat ramp is located within the campground.

The expansive Arapeen OHV Trail System can be accessed just west of the reservoir and has more than 350 miles of designated, well-maintained trails for off-road vehicles. It is suitable for all riding levels. Horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking are popular in the area as well.

Facilities:

The campground contains several single- and double-family campsites, all of which are accessible. Many sites have lake views and some sites are shaded. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Roads and parking spurs are paved.

Nearby Attractions:
