Camping

Utah is a big place.

329 public campgrounds will help you stay a little longer to explore it.

A number of agencies manage these Utah campgrounds. Of the 329 campgrounds, the USDA Forest Service manages 190 and Utah State Parks manage 44; the Bureau of Land Management cares for another 46.

In addition, there are 40 national park, national monument, and national recreation area campgrounds, as well as 9 county and city campgrounds. Each offers a different take on camping in Utah and no two experiences will ever be the same, ensuring that every night spent outside is as thrilling as the last.

Since Utah is the thirteenth-largest state by area and covered in diverse and endless public lands, we've divided the state into several camping regions to help you locate and select a campground in the area of your choice.
