Overview

Mustang Ridge Campground is located on a high desert bluff above beautiful Flaming Gorge Reservoir at an elevation of 6,300 feet. The reservoir can be accessed within a half-mile of the campground. Recreational activities abound, including boating, water skiing and fishing.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated among a dense pinyon pine and juniper forest dotted with sagebrush. The vegetation provides privacy between campsites but only partial shade. The outer loop campsites are on the edge of the ridge and offer expansive views of the reservoir.

Recreation:

A boat ramp is adjacent to the campground, offering great access to boating, water skiing and fishing on the reservoir. Sunny Cove Day Use Area is within a half-mile, offering a quieter place for swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking and rock climbing.

Facilities:

This large campground offers several family campsites, two of which are accessible, and one group site that can accommodate up to 50 people. Sites are equipped with picnic tables and campfire rings.

Flush and vault toilets, drinking water and showers are provided. An amphitheater with bleacher seating and a screen support is located on the outer loop. Firewood is available for purchase from the host. Roads and parking spurs are paved.

Nearby Attractions:

Flaming Gorge Dam offers guided tours of the working hydroelectric plant and the dam, and the adjacent visitor center contains area history exhibits.

The Green River below the dam provides spectacular rafting opportunities. A trip down the river offers unique geology, outlaw history and Native American rock art.
