Area Status: Open
This area is Open

Jarvies Boat-In Campground is located on beautiful Flaming Gorge Reservoir in Jarvies Canyon. Campers must boat-in to the facility, and the nearest boat ramps are located at Cedar Springs and Mustang Ridge Marinas, both 20 minutes across the water.  

The campground is situated among dense stands of juniper and pinyon pine on a hillside overlooking the reservoir. The vegetation offers good privacy between campsites but limited shade. Most sites have partial views of the reservoir and its surrounding red cliffs. 

Water and garbage service are not available. Campers are to carry out all garbage. Showers are located at Deer Run and Mustang Ridge for campers with proof of camping registration. No hookups are available. 

Firewood available at Cedar Springs or Deer Run. Don't Move Firewood: Help prevent the spread of tree-killing pests in our national forests by obtaining firewood near your destination and burning it on-site. For more information visit dontmovefirewood.org.

Boating, water skiing, fishing and swimming are popular activities, all located steps from the campsites. A private dock is down a short hill on the shoreline. The path from the boat dock to the campground does not support accessibility standards; some visitors may require assistance. 

A hiking trail passes through the site as well.

Nearby Activities
