The Manti Community Campground is just seven miles from Manti, Utah next to Yearns Reservoir at an elevation of 7,400 feet. A mixed forest of spruce, pinyon, juniper, fir, and aspen covers the area, offering partial shade. Summer wildflowers and wildlife are abundant. Canoeing and fishing for cutthroat trout are popular on the small man-made lake.

This campground contains one group site that can accommodate up to 30 people and six vehicles, with large picnic tables, a utility table, and a fire ring with benches. Single-family sites are available as well, with picnic tables and fire rings. Vault toilets are provided. Roads and parking spurs are gravel.

The surrounding area is a haven for ATV enthusiasts. Several trails crisscross the region, making up part of the 350+ miles of the exciting Arapeen OHV Trail System. In the immediate area is the Burnt Hill Trail that connects with the Patton Trail. Hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding are popular in the area as well
