Area Status: Closed
This area is Closed

Upper Stillwater Campground is located below its namesake reservoir in the Rock Creek Drainage on the southern slope of the beautiful Uinta Mountains. Visitors enjoy fishing and exploring the popular Stillwater Trail.

Natural Features:
The campground is situated just below the Upper Stillwater Dam at an elevation of 8,000 feet. The concrete dam is visible from the campground. A forest of Ponderosa pine, lodgepole pine and aspen trees provides only sparse shade. Summer wildflowers are abundant.

The Stillwater Trail begins just outside the campground and provides access to the High Uintas Wilderness from the Upper Stillwater Trailhead, where hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, wildlife viewing and backcountry fishing are very popular activities in this scenic region.

Rock Creek offers rainbow and brook trout fishing. Upper Stillwater Reservoir is accessible only to watercraft that can be carried in, as the boat ramp is closed to vehicle traffic.

The campground contains one group site that can accommodate up to 32 people. It is equipped with picnic tables, grills, a campfire ring, three tent pads and RV parking. Single and double-family sites are available as well, each with a picnic table and campfire ring.

Flush toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided. A campground host is on-site. A dump station is located 3 miles away at Yellowpine Campground.

This portlet is temporarily disabled.
