South Hughes Group Campground is located in beautiful Huntington Canyon, along the Huntington Canyon National Scenic Byway on Utah Highway 31. It sits at an elevation of approximately 8,000 feet. Many recreational activities are available, including hiking, biking and fishing.

Natural Features:

Large spruce trees cover the campground, offering plentiful shade. Grassy meadows and thick stands of aspens surround the site. Huntington Creek flows just across the road from the campground.


Popular activities include fishing, hunting, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, rock climbing and scenic driving. Huntington Creek is a Blue Ribbon fishery, offering high quality fishing for brown, cutthroat and rainbow trout.

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


The campground contains one group site that can accommodate up to 100 people. One accessible vault toilet is provided, but there is no water, electricity or garbage service. The large parking area within the campground is dirt. Grassy areas provide nice spots for tents.

Beyond the group site are several individual walk-to tent sites available on a first-come, first-served basis.

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.
