Joe's Valley Reservoir Campground is located in a high mountain valley next to its namesake, at an elevation of 7,000 feet. Visitors enjoy boating, fishing and exploring the surrounding off-road vehicle trails.
The campground contains several single- and double-family campsites, all of which are accessible. Many sites have lake views and some sites are shaded. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. Roads and parking spurs are paved.
Stage 2 Fire Restrictions (Only Gas Stoves/ Gas Grills/ Gas Firepit Allowed)
There are currently fire restrictions at our facility that prohibit all fires, including those in fire rings, as well as charcoal usage and smoking (except in an enclosed vehicle).
Gas stoves, grills and firepits with a shut-off valve are permitted only if they’re used at least three feet away from flammable materials such as grass or pine needles.
These fire restrictions are in place due to high fire danger in the area. You can find more information about these restrictions on our agency website.
We expect fire restrictions to be in effect during your visit and wanted to provide you with the information needed to plan accordingly for your trip.
Please contact our facility if you have any questions or would like additional information.
SEVERE DROUGHT - The drought Utah is experiencing is slowly impacting the Joes Valley Reservoir water system. To be able to supply water to all campers for the weeks to come, we are asking for those visiting Joes Valley to help lower the demand on the water system by bringing water. At this time, we are still able to fill our water storage tanks but we are anticipating a struggle in the weeks to come. If all campers come with additional water and avoid wasting water(use only for drinking and cleaning needs), we are hoping the spring will have the ability to meet the needs for the visitors for the months to come.
Joes Valley Reservoir boat ramp closed due to low water conditions.
Off-road vehicle use is limited within the campground. Riders are permitted to leave/return from the campground to access trails but recreational riding inside the campground is not permitted.
