Campground. Located in Clear Creek Canyon and very easily accessed from Exit 17 on I-70. A small creek runs through the campground, there are no fish. This campground is operated under permit by the nearby Fremont Indian State Park. There are trails for hiking and access to ATV trails. Common vegetation in the area includes cottonwood, pinion, juniper and Ponderosa pine trees. This campground is open to ATV use. On the northwest corner of the campground is an ATV trail that will take you around the hill to access the Pauite ATV 01 trail. This trail leaves directly from the campground to the Main Paiute ATV trail in Dry Canyon, then south to Big Johns Flat and ultimately to Circleville. Big Johns Flat and Circleville are only accessible from this area from late July to the first of October due to snow drifts in the upper elevations. Another trail goes north to the Pahvant Range and Fillmore.
