Lodgepole Campground is settled near beautiful Flaming Gorge Reservoir just 26 miles north of Vernal, Utah, at an elevation of 8,000 feet. Visitors enjoy exploring local trails and day-tripping to the reservoir, only 10 miles away.

A scenic aspen forest dotted with pines covers the campground, offering pleasant shade and pretty fall color. Summer wildflowers are abundant in this shady, secluded campground.

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. Firewood is available for purchase from the campground host.

This campground has a dump station available for a small fee and trash collection is provided. Showers are located at Deer Run and Mustang Ridge for campers with proof of camping registration.

Nearby Attractions:

  • Many campers make the short trip to beautiful Flaming Gorge Recreation Area for its world-class fishing for lake, brown and rainbow trout. Boating, water skiing, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and scuba diving are popular activities on the reservoir.
  • Flaming Gorge Dam offers guided tours of the working hydroelectric plant and the dam, and the adjacent visitor center contains area history exhibits.
  • The Green River below the dam provides spectacular rafting opportunities. A trip down the river offers unique geology, outlaw history and Native American rock art.
