Jarvies Family Boat-In Campground is located on beautiful Flaming Gorge Reservoir in Jarvies Canyon at an elevation of 6,040 feet. Campers must boat-in to the facility, and the nearest boat ramps are located at Cedar Springs and Mustang Ridge Marinas, both 20 minutes across the water.
Boating, water skiing, fishing and swimming are popular activities, all located steps from the campsites. A hiking trail passes through the site as well.
Jarvies offers eight single-family sites, all of which are reservable. Each site has a picnic shelter, table, tent pad and campfire ring with grill. One vault toilet is provided.
A private dock is down a short hill on the shoreline.
The campground is situated among dense stands of juniper and pinyon pine on a hillside overlooking the reservoir. The vegetation offers good privacy between campsites but limited shade. Most sites have partial views of the reservoir and its surrounding red cliffs.
Flaming Gorge Dam offers guided tours of the working hydroelectric plant and the dam, and the adjacent visitor center contains area history exhibits.
The Green River below the dam provides spectacular rafting opportunities. A trip down the river offers unique geology, outlaw history and Native American rock art.
