About: Maple Canyon Campground is nestled among thick groves of maples below beautiful towering rock walls, just 3 miles from Freedom, Utah, elevation 6,700 feet. Rock climbing is the campground's main draw, attracting climbers from all over the world with its numerous routes for beginners and experts alike.
This campground contains one group site that can accommodate up to 40 people, several single-family sites, and three walk-to tent sites, each with picnic tables and fire rings. Sites 2, 3, and 4 must be accessed by carrying your gear a short distance from the parking area. Vault toilets are provided but there is no water. You must bring your own. Roads and parking spurs are dirt. Pets must be leashed in campground.
The canyon has some excellent hiking, biking, and horseback riding opportunities. Three steep scenic loop trails (3 to 5-mile loops) provide access to many of the rock climbing sites in the canyon. Panoramic views east into Sanpete Valley and beyond to the Wasatch Plateau reveal themselves as you near the top.
