About: Hideout Canyon Boat-In Campground is located in a pinyon pine and juniper forest on the shore of Flaming Gorge Reservoir, elevation 6,040 feet. This popular campground gets its name from a hiding spot used by Butch Cassidy and his gang. Boating, fishing, and swimming are popular activities right out your front door. Access to this campground is by boating or hiking only. Most patrons boat to the campground, using the Sheep Creek Bay Boat Ramp. Hikers should use the Hideout/Carter Creek Trailhead on Dowd Mountain off Forest Road 94.

This campground has 18 single-family sites, 14 of which can be reserved. Reservations are strongly recommended. Three sites are ADA accessible. Each site has a cabana, picnic table, and fire ring with grate. Flush toilets and water hydrants are provided. Trails within the site are gravel. A campground host is onsite. A vault toilet is available for off-season use. Flaming Gorge Corporation operates this campground under a Special Use Permit with the US Forest Service. Services in the area include Lucerne Valley Marina with boat rentals, gas, slips, licenses, tackle, and groceries.

Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area is known not only for its beautiful red cliffs, but also for its world-class fishing. Lake, brown and rainbow trout fishing, boating, waterskiing, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and scuba diving are popular activities on the reservoir. River rafting on the Green River is spectacular, with red cliffs rising on both sides. Flaming Gorge Dam offers interesting guided tours of the working hydroelectric plant and the dam itself; the adjacent visitor center has area history exhibits.
