King Creek Campground


King Creek Campground

King Creek Campground is situated in a ponderosa pine forest, adjacent to Tropic Reservoir and the East Fork of the Sevier River. It is approximately 9 miles west of Bryce Canyon National Park. Access is provided by an improved gravel road. This campground provides paved sidewalks at select sites to provide improved accessibility.

OHVs are allowed for ingress and egress to campsites. There are many recreational opportunities near this campground including hiking, OHV riding, sightseeing, fishing, wildlife viewing, and boating. Tropic Reservoir is open year-round , but the snow can become waist high during the winter months. As the temperatures drop in the fall, the water will be turned off but dry camping is available.

King Creek Trail and Chimney Rock Trail are accessible from inside the campground. They both have great views of Hoodoos from the bottom and the top. They also have beautiful overviews of Tropic Reservoir.

There are six OHV loop trails that are accessible from the campground. These loops are a part of the Paunsaugunt OHV Trail System.
