WIllow Lake Campground is located on the east shore of Willow Lake, at an elevation of 9,640 feet. 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. This campground contains 10 single-family sites with picnic tables and campfire rings. Most sites have lake views, though none have direct lake access. A footpath leads to the shore from the campground, and another trail with easy fishing access leads all the way around the lake. Vault toilets are provided, but there is no water or garbage service. Roads and parking spurs are gravel. Visitor enjoy fishing, canoeing, wildlife viewing, mountain biking, and hiking to explore many of the surrounding trails. In winter, the area becomes a playground for snowobile enthusiasts.
