Nearby Attractions:
The Stillwater Trail begins just over a mile away and connects with an accessible, paved interpretive nature trail in Yellowpine Campground. The Stillwater Trail provides access to the High Uintas Wilderness from the Upper Stillwater Trailhead, where hiking, backpacking, horseback riding and backcountry fishing are very popular activities.

Upper Stillwater Reservoir and Lower Stillwater Ponds are nearby, offering fishing for brown and rainbow trout, swimming and picnicking. Upper Stillwater Reservoir is accessible only to watercraft that can be carried in, as the boat ramp is closed to vehicle traffic.
