Overview

Ferron Campground is located next to Ferron Reservoir, a premier alpine lake that is popular with fishermen. The area offers both developed single campsites and a developed group camp site. It sits just below the ridgeline of the Wasatch Plateau, at an elevation of 9,400 feet. It is located adjacent to the historical Indian Creek Guard Station. Visitors enjoy fishing, canoeing and exploring many local trails.

Recreation

Ferron Reservoir is adjacent to the campground, providing canoeing, boating (small craft only) and fishing for rainbow and cutthroat trout. Numerous off-road vehicle trails crisscross the area, offering exciting rides for all skill levels. These trails mainly consist of 66-inch and 50-inch OHV routes. Rush Pond and Willow Lake are a short drive east and Duck Fork Reservoir is just to the north, offering additional fishing, canoeing, and OHV opportunities. 

Facilities

The campground contains one group campsite offering lake views, located on the northeast portion of the lake. It can accommodate up to 50 people and eight vehicles. Several single-family sites are also available within the campground, located to the south and west of the lake. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided, but there is no garbage service. Multiple self-pay fee stations are available. Roads and parking spurs are gravel.

Natural Features

The small reservoir sits in a scenic alpine basin. Spruce, fir and aspen trees dot the landscape, providing partial shade in the campground. Wildlife and summer wildflowers are abundant, and autumn leaves put on quite a show in the surrounding area.
