This is a Forest Service campground. Most sites are back-in. Roads and sites are paved, mostly new facilities. Flush toilets. Heavily shaded. We used as a base for Strawberry valley/lake. During late September, the aspens were yellow and we were the only ones in camp. Only downsides were some road noise and a pay dump station. $10 to dump even if you camp there. Beautiful, forested campground would stay there again. - G&S Smith

We stayed here for a month in Sept 2016. We had visited the park in June 2016 so we knew the layout and where we wanted to stay. We got lucky and were able to reserve a spot that was perfect for us. We have a 35 ft motorhome and we had an excellent experience while here. The staff is very friendly and professional. The facilities are first rate and the grounds are kept neat. The place was always full while we were here but we didn't get that "crowded" feel. We made a reservation for next year. - joe300

The rave reviews must be from people who had better sites than us. We reserved a deluxe pull through for a 45 ft coach. We were put in a spot adequate for a 35 ft fifth wheel. The road to pull out was so narrow that it would have been impossible to pull out without running over the corner of the tiny grass area adjacent to the site. The irony is that they make a big deal on their website about the fines they will levy if you drive over their grass ($50!)- and then put you in a spot where it impossible not to. Solved the problem by backing out, but should not have been charged for a deluxe pull through. Went back to office and complained (which I have never done anywhere). Staff person agreed with me that the site was short, street was narrow, and said they usually don't put big rigs in those spaces, but that was all that was available. I asked if he didn't think that should be communicated to customer when making a reservation. No real answer. No reduction in fee, no refund. Don't stay in any of the "D" sites if you are 45 ft. Ask for a "U" site.
The sites were tiny and we were literally in the same living space as the campers next to us. Sunny and open exposure. Concrete pad with a picnic table. Clean restrooms.
Won't be going back to this park. - dfwcantor

Nice new park.
Spaces were a little on the tight side. but ok for an overnight.
Would not be happy hear for a long stay.
Lots of amenities and children to go with them.
Would stay here again. - happyflyer

This park actually has nice facilities, but the sites themselves are so variable that it merits an overall negative rating. They knew ahead of time we were in a 45 ft Class A with slideouts. They assigned us a spot which would have been OK if it did not have an untrimmed tree with branches hanging about 10 feet off the ground. With a 13 ft RV there was no way it was usable. Went to the office to ask for a different site, and got assigned a super narrow, super tight space with barely enough room to put out a slide without hitting the neighbor's slide. Had to move boulders out of the way to even get in. Also, the site was largely underwater from a sprinkler that had been running; no way to park without exiting into a puddle of mud. There was a picnic table, but it was surrounded by water and mud as well. If the owners spent a few dollars on tree maintenance this could be a nice place. Would not stay here again. - dfwcantor

We were very happy to find a good RV park just a few miles off of I-80 on a road trip. Location is close to Park City in a beautiful part of Utah. RV spaces were somewhat close but certainly more room than many parks we have stayed in. Overall, River's Edge had lots of open space--lots of grass lawns. It is a trout fishing resort with an easy walk across the street to the river. We were early I year for good fishing, so it was very low key, but probably very busy later in the summer. Resort has lots of cabins as well as the RV spots. Nice trails by the river--good place to get a little exercise with our dog. Restrooms were small but clean and updated. We would definitely stay here again. - Ftcollinscamper

Sites are nice and level, but a bit close together. We had an end spot so we were able to use the lawn. The 89 spots are mostly cabins or yurts. There are actually only 31 RV spots, mostly pull-throughs of various lengths.
The clubhouse and laundry were clean and tidy.
There is a small river running along the edge of the campground. It is lined with cabins that were not occupied. I walked my dogs along the bank, I am not sure I would have been comfortable doing that if the cabins were inhabited.
Even though it is not that far off the highway, there was very little road noise. - Impkitti

It's dry-camping here, generator hours between 6am-10pm. There is plenty of water available from the spigots placed randomly around the campgrounds, but they are next to the road and threaded, as well as a potable water hose at the dump station. The dump costs an additional $10 to use and requires cash or credit card through a machine that will unlock the cap to the dump once paid. There are 4 loops to select your site from: A loop seems to be where the more long-term RV campers prefer to stay with lots of aspen trees around. B, C, & D loops are closer to the lake but very little vegetation so it feels wide open. D loop has the best scenery of the lake and it seemed almost every site there will get a decent view. You can still get a view of the lake from certain sites in B & C loops. We stayed for one week and stayed in site B-15, which had a grove of pine trees that made us feel like we were by ourselves, but no lake view. However, over the weekend it seemed every site around us was filled with tent campers and they were noisy past quiet hours. Half of the sites in this campground can only be reserved by walk-up, so anyone without a reservation is very likely to find a spot. My recommendation would be to stay in A loop and head to the section at the very back reserved for walk-ups only, there was only one other RV back there and no tent campers so you can still have some peace regardless of the weekend campers flooding the other loops. The camp hosts were wonderful and extremely helpful. We arrived here with a punctured flat tire and they were understanding to let us sit at the dump station (where we discovered it) and change out the tire. They had an air compressor they personally let us borrow. The temps were very refreshing and still gets quite chilly at night (40s-50s). Excellent Verizon coverage here with strong LTE signal on our MiFi. - Sara C.

This is a nice, well-kept concessionier forest service campground. Our 40' motorhome fit fine. We didn't have reservations mid-week but they would be necessary during the summer and holidays. It's a busy park for fishing and boating. The roads and sites are paved and there is a dump station. The bathrooms had flush toilets, were tiled and even had soap dispensers. This is very unusual for a forest service campground. Our rate was with the Senior Pass. - nbi600

Forest Service Campground with no hookups but you can run the generator except between 10PM and 6AM. At 7200 feet you don't need A/C at night anyway. Lots of space between sites and the camp hosts were fantastic. Walking distance to boat ramp and marina. Strawberry Reservoir is some of the best trout fishing in Utah. The other thing I'd say is that this place had the best dump station setup I've ever seen. Each aisle had two stations. The first had the dump station and a hose of (non-drinkable water) on a tower so you could reach it through the bathroom window to flush the black tank. Worked great. Then you pull up to the next island and there is potable water for filling your freshwater tank. Very nice. - Randy Knjight

This is a federally managed park. Signage is insufficient - turn at the sign for the marina after turning off rt. 40! Sites are spacious and provide inspiring views. The water is a bit far from the sites as the water is down 40% due to low rainfall/snowfall for years. Verizon cell access was slow - 3g signal. There is a marina with a cafe and store. Easy access in/out for a 38 ft 5th wheel. - alansills

What a gem! A beautiful view of the Strawberry Bay Reservoir from both sides of the rig. About 10 degrees cooler than in Provo and Salt Lake City which was pretty important as it was over 100^ in those cities during the week that we were here. We had full hookups, but, most of the campground has no services at all. Our view was great, but, our space was a bit short for our 41' coach. We were backed in tight enough, that, had we wanted to use our fire pit we would've burnt up the rear end of our rig. There is a campground manager on each loop in the park and ours came to greet us within an hour of our arrival with our parking pass and to answer any questions we might have. People were friendly. We walked the 3 miles of camping loops each day and everyone we encountered had a friendly wave and hello. Very relaxed environment. Many people had boats and they were parked every which way on the sites, but, none of them were blocking the roadway. Lots of fishing going on with grandpas taking the grandkids out on the lake for the day. The lake is large with many coves. Water was beautiful: smooth as glass all morning long the days that we were here. - themom3

We had a beautiful view of the reservoir. We paid for a full hook up spot, but the water was not turned on yet (mid-May), so we had to fill up our tank in the park. Our site could have been cleaner. Some campers allowed their dogs to run loose despite the posted leash requirements, and their dogs were urinating at other campers' sites. The same unleashed dogs would run out and charge you if you went by their campsite. The loops that did not have full hookups appeared to have campers that were more respectful of their surroundings. People in the B loop were not picking up after their dogs, but I did not see that elsewhere. The camp hosts were very friendly. - Eliza C

Super clean campground, great views of the reservoir with the picnic tables, fire rings and BBQ's all in tip-top condition. - Smileys

Jordanelle was worth a multi-night visit! Great kayaking even with the water down 40% from full capacity. Excellent water front sites (and these sites are fairly level). Navigating the park is easy for a big rig (38 ft 5th wheel). The park is near Heber City (full services including a Smiths grocery, a bowling alley, and a coffee shop called the Coffee Station). Jordanelle is also near Park City. - alansills

Nice, but busy campground right at the lake.
Pros: View of the lake, spacious sites, clean, great showers, nice camp hosts, store and marina nearby.
Cons: Sites VERY unlevel (we broke our landing gear trying to get level)/ No one seemed to have a level site. We saw some people with 12" -14" of blocking under their jacks (I don't think that's too safe). Our dog got sprayed by a skunk and we saw a rattlesnake in the parking lot of the Red Cliff nature reserve - so there are critters. No shade so bring an easy-up. - Suru

The views and location alone make this state park a not to miss when camping in Heber Valley/Midway, UT. We camped in a 36 foot fifth wheel and noticed when comparing the campsite links on Reserve America to what we know are true length to be, there were major discrepancies. Be certain that you add several extra feet to what your RV length requirements may be to avoid any site issues. The campground is narrow and many sites are very far from level. Excellent 30/50amp and beautiful hiking throughout the area. AT&T Cell phone reception was very weak in the campsite, but stronger in town. We would stay here again. - RVLife4us

Older unit of the Utah State Parks system. It is located in a narrow valley looking down onto the area around Midway and Heber UT. Quite a bit of vegetation and nice spacing between sites. Deer came through between sites during our stay. Hills on both sides limit the amount of morning and evening sun. The roads and sites are asphalt and ours was close to level. A very nice looking golf course is a part of the park. The roads are quite narrow and both sides are lines with large rocks. Read site descriptions carefully as some of them require short turns or have very steep approaches or departures. Due to the amount of vegetation, the steepness of the canyon, and the limited access I would not be at all comfortable in this area during periods of high fire danger. Not for “Big Rigs”. Area is in need of some upgrades. Probably would not stay here again due to access issues. Note Reserve America runs the reservation system for Utah State Parks and adds $8.00 for making the reservation. - SWID

Very friendly, bathrooms always clean, nice spots, some with shade some not so much. Stay here at least once a year. - shan911

A decent place to stay when visiting the Salt Lake City area. The campground is on a hill overlooking the reservoir, so the sites are tiered over several levels. Almost all have a nice view of the water and all have a covered patio with picnic table. The backin sites are double wide asphalt so lots of space. Pull through sites are the typical single wide sites. Sites on the lower tiers have a bit less road noise than those on the upper tiers, but not bad in either case. Not overly dog friendly as there are multiple signs saying dogs allowed in campground only. The nice thing is the location. Easy drive to Provo, Park City, and SLC. Temple square is about a 45 minute drive and an interesting visit. Super fantastic dog friendly hikes in the multiple parks and forest lands nearby off of Provo Canyon. A drive up to Mt. Timpanogos is a must do. Our only complaint is that a few of the backin sites have curbs preventing backing in enough to use the sewer. In our site (25), the sewer was 28' away from our wet bay requiring a trip into town for another sewer hose. Barely useable Verizon, but clear sky for satellite reception. We will stay here again when in the area. - Jerry and Betsy

Used this campground as a mid-way stop for a longer trip. A good number of the visitors are there for the reservoir and you'll sometimes see the RV plus boat, plus 2 vehicles in spaces. Reasonably spaced out park with good roads. Some spaces (like ours) have great views of the North end of the reservoir. There is some road noise from the highway above, but it drops off dramatically at night. And our spot was close to a restroom with overly bright floodlights we could have done without. The location offers a great jumping off spot for visiting Park City, Heber, Midway, and some areas used for the 2002 winter Olympics. - BubbaChris

We stayed two nights in our 34' Fifth Wheel and very much enjoyed our stay. The site we had was very large and level. We enjoyed a ride on the Heber Creeper which was suggested by a park employee. We never saw the camp host which I like meeting, but that didn't hamper our stay. Given the chance we would stay here again. - Barry_Darcy

This campground is high in the rocky mountains very close to Tibble Fork Reservoir. Amazing pine trees. The campground is spread out and on a slight slope. There is ATV riding in the area, hiking, fishing, etc. This area is the backside of some of the famous Utah ski resorts. It was an old mining area in the late 1800s. The camp sites are smaller but they are spread out from each other. The sites are not very level even though the pads are paved. It looked like most, if not all, were back in sites. I have a 35' 5th wheel and I don't think I would fit in most of the sites. The campground also has some large group sites with paved parking. There are some large grass areas as well. - kohai
