Image of City Creek Campground

Group Campground. Five camping units are available with tables, fire rings, and non-potable water. The campground has vault toilets, group fire circle, picnic area and amphitheatre to the north. Units will accommodate up to 24' trailers. Cottonwood trees canopy the campsites in the City Creek Campground. The sound of trickling water can be heard from most locations. City Creek weaves along-side the campsites. This creek is primarily a rainbow trout fishery. Common vegetation includes cottonwood, Ponderosa pine, pinyon and juniper trees. Special Features: Rainbow trout are occasionally stocked in the campground area. Both forks of City Creek support trout populations, with the most success found on the south fork. There are hiking or horseback opportunities on trails going up both the North and South Fork of City Creek. ATV access: This campground allows ATV access to trails directly from camp. Riders can head north on jeep trails or can go southeast out of the campground and access the Paiute ATV Trail. The Paiute Trail will take riders through Oak and Cottonwood Basins then access more trails at the top of the mountains.
