Overview

Potters Pond Campground is located in a high mountain valley next to two scenic ponds, at an elevation of 8,900 feet. Visitors enjoy fishing, canoeing, horseback riding and exploring the surrounding off-road vehicle trails.

Natural Features:

Potters Pond lies in Upper Joe's Valley in Central Utah. Pine trees and wild grasses cover the area, while aspens dot the surrounding mountainsides.

Recreation:

The ponds offer great canoeing and rainbow trout fishing. Horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking are popular in the area as well.

The expansive Arapeen OHV Trail System can be accessed from the campground and has more than 350 miles of designated, well-maintained trails for off-road vehicles. The trails are suitable for all riding levels.

Facilities:

This campground offers a variety of campsites, including single, double and equestrian sites. Some sites have views of the ponds and most sites are shaded.

Sites are equipped with tables and campfire rings with grills. Vault toilets are provided, but there is no water, electricity or trash collection available within the campground. Visitors will need to bring their own water, as well as pack out all garbage.

Roads and parking spurs within the campground are dirt. The campground can be reached via the well-maintained dirt and gravel Miller Flat Road, which provides relatively easy access for cars and RVs.
