About: Red Springs is settled in a quaking aspen forest dotted with lodgepole and Ponderosa pines at an elevation of 8,000 feet near beautiful Flaming Gorge, Utah, less than 20 miles away. Summer wildflowers are abundant in this shady, secluded campground.
This campground was previously designated as single sites only, but now the entire campground can be reserved as a group site. When it is not reserved, it is used as overflow first come, first served single-family sites. Vault toilets, picnic tables, and fire rings with grates are provided. Roads and parking spurs are gravel. A campground host is located across the road at Lodgepole Ashley Campground.
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 cliff walls 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.
