Cedar Springs Campground is a small campground located in the beautiful Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area on the Ashley National Forest. Flaming Gorge Reservoir and Cedar Springs Marina are less than a mile from the campground. Exciting recreational activities abound, including boating, water skiing and fishing.

Cedar Springs is situated among juniper, pinyon pine and sagebrush on a hillside above Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Shade is limited but the vegetation provides good privacy between sites, many of which have scenic views of the reservoir below.

 A dump station, trash collection and fish cleaning station are provided. Other dump stations are located at Antelope Flat, Deer Run, Firefighters, and Lodgepole. A fee is charged. Showers are available a half-mile away at Deer Run Campground, there is another shower located at Mustang Ridge for campers with proof of camping registration.

Firewood is available for purchase. 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.

For large group camping, the nearby Arch Dam, Greendale, Dripping Springs, Antelope Flat and Dutch John Draw Campgrounds have several group sites available.
