  • Elevation is more than 7,000 feet, which keeps it cooler than the gorge in the summer

Fodor's Review

This small campground sits along the Canyon Rim hiking trail atop 1,300-foot cliffs overlooking Flaming Gorge Reservoir. The location provides ample scenery, cool air, scattered shade, and close proximity to both the Red Canyon visitor center and the Red Canyon Lodge. The campground is 4 mi west of the Greendale Junction of U.S. 191 and Route 44, then 2½ mi down Red Canyon Road (look for the turnoff).
