Overview

Willow Lake Campground is located on the east shore of scenic Willow Lake, at an elevation of 9,400 feet. Visitors enjoy fishing, canoeing and exploring many of the surrounding trails.

Natural Features:

The small lake sits in an alpine basin high on the Wasatch Plateau. Spruce, fir and aspen trees dot the open landscape, providing partial shade in the campground. Wildlife and summer wildflowers are plentiful, and autumn leaves put on quite a show in the surrounding area.

Recreation:

Canoeing and fishing are popular activities on the lake. A footpath leads to the lakeshore from the campground.

The campground is a staging area for the expansive Arapeen OHV Trail System, with more than 350 miles of designated, maintained trails for all riding levels.

Facilities:

The campground contains ten single-family campsites, most of which have lake views. Sites are equipped with tables and campfire rings. Vault toilets are provided, but there is no water or garbage service. Roads and parking spurs within the campground are gravel.

Nearby Attractions:

Ferron Reservoir is a short drive west, offering additional fishing and canoeing opportunities.

Skyline Drive runs along the top of the Wasatch Plateau for more than 60 miles, rewarding visitors with beautiful mountain scenery, glacial cirques, spruce-fir forests, aspen forests and access to numerous lakes and reservoirs.
