Swift Creek Campground


The Swift Creek Campground sits at just over 8000 feet elevation near the confluence of Swift Creek and the Yellowstone River. A lovely waterfall is nearby. The campground is near the boundary of the High Uintas Wilderness, and the trailhead from the campground leads to a number of alpine lakes. Fishing for brook, brown and rainbow trout is possible in the Yellowstone River.
