About: Yellowstone Group Campground lies along its pretty namesake river in an aspen forest dotted with maples and Ponderosa pines on the south slope of the Uinta Range, elevation 7,700 feet. Fishing for rainbow, brown, brook, and cutthroat trout is a popular activity on the river. The Yellowstone ATV Trail System is conveniently close, with over 50 miles of trail on the Petty Mountain and Dry Gulch Loops. Hiking and biking are also allowed on these trails.
This campground contains one group site that can accommodate up to 80 people and 8 vehicles, with picnic tables and fire rings. Vault toilets, potable water, and garbage service are provided. Roads and parking spurs are gravel. Several first come, first served single sites are available as well.
Yellowstone Canyon offers beautiful mountain scenery, additional first come, first served campgrounds, a small reservoir, and trailheads with access to the High Uintas Wilderness. Hiking, backpacking, and horseback riding are popular in the wilderness area, and numerous sparkling lakes provide great backcountry fishing opportunities.
