Dutch John Draw Campground is located within a quiet cove on Flaming Gorge Reservoir. It is located on a sloping hillside forested with pinyon pines, which offer little shade. The entire site offers scenic views of the water. Campers enjoy easy access to boating, water skiing, fishing and swimming.

A small boat dock is located on-site and is designated specifically for those camping at Dutch John Draw. A short trail leads to it from the campground, providing easy access to boating, water skiing, canoeing, fishing and swimming on the reservoir. A boat ramp is available less than 2 miles away at Mustang Ridge.

Trash collection is provided.
