Utahns agree—we are so lucky to live in such a gorgeous state.

Antelope Island State Park  


Antelope Island makes our list for 2018 because of its unique wildlife and location. It’s a surreal experience to watch a herd of bison walk by while soaking in the beautiful sunset over the Great Salt Lake. Its beauty is truly something to behold, and the best way to experience it is to camp at one of the 50 or so campsites available. 


Devil’s Garden 


This breathtaking campground located inside Arches National Park is a gorgeous spot to post up for a few nights while exploring the beauty of Southern Utah’s desert landscape. There’s hardly a lack of natural features to explore here, as Arches National Park is home to some of the most majestic arches, fins, spires, and bridges in all of the United States.

Bear Lake State Park


While Antelope Island may be situated within the Great Salt Lake, we can all agree you probably don’t want to take a dip in those waters (unless you’re a brine shrimp). Bear Lake is a great spot for campers who want to enjoy the water! The lake offers excellent fishing, boating, and other recreational activities as well as beautiful beaches for a day spent soaking in the Northeastern Utah sun.

Spruces Campground 


Looking to stay a little closer to Salt Lake? A weekend or overnight camping trip to Spruces Campground in Big Cottonwood Canyon is the perfect place. This quaint little campground located in one of Utah’s most beautiful canyons is a great home base to return to after a day of hiking, fishing, or biking. This campground also offers all the amenities you could ask for—perfect for glampers or hardened outdoor enthusiasts.
