Lower Meadows Campground

Area Status: Open

This campground is located on the far side of the river from Highway 39. The entrance is the same as Upper Meadows, but instead of turning left, stay on the road, cross the bridge and turn to the right at the top of the hill.

This campground is one of the most spacious with the individual sites quite far apart. The grass is usually tall and thick.

This campground has firewood available to purchase from the on-site Campground Host.

Popular local recreation activities include fishing, hiking, swimming and tubing down the South Fork Ogden River (a life jacket is required for all tubers).  Causey Reservoir, a scenic mountain lake, is four miles east.
