Overview

Te-Ah Campground is located 28 miles east of Cedar City, Utah, in scenic Navajo Lake Basin. Touring bicycle groups commonly use Te-Ah as a stopover on their way through this beautiful corner of Utah. Fishing and canoeing on Navajo Lake are popular activities.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on the edge of a meadow high on the Colorado Plateau at an elevation of 9,200 feet. An aspen forest covers the campground, offering limited shade. Navajo Lake can be viewed in the distance from several sites.

Recreation:

Navajo Lake offers great canoeing, kayaking and fishing. Hiking and biking are popular activities as well. The Cascade Falls Trailhead is located in the campground. This beautiful trail has abundant wildlife and vegetation.

The 34-mile Virgin River Rim Trail passes near the campground and is open to hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.

Te-Ah offers 41 single sites with picnic tables and campfire rings. One group site (#33) is available and designated for bicycle tour groups of up to 20 people. The site provides tables, bicycle wash and parking racks and a workspace for self-contained kitchens.

Flush and vault toilets are provided and drinking water is piped from a spring. A well-maintained gravel road skirts the shoreline of Navajo Lake and leads to Te-ah on the lake's western edge, allowing good access for cars, trailers and bicycles.
