  • Camping

    Dispersed Camping: Many people enjoy the solitude and primitive experience of camping away from developed campgrounds and other campers. Dispersed camping is the term used for camping anywhere in the National Forest outside of a designated campground. Dispersed camping means no toilets, no treated water, and no fire grates are provided. Typically, dispersed camping is not allowed in the vicinity of developed recreation areas such as campgrounds, picnic areas or trailheads. Many people drive out on Forest Service roads into the woods and find a clearing or a spot near a stream or with a view of the mountains. There are extra responsibilities and skills that are necessary for dispersed camping. It`s your responsibility to know these before you try this new experience. Dispersed camping is allowed up to 150 feet from a designated Forest Service Road. No Dispersed camping within 1/2 mile of an established campground. No Dispersed camping within 100 feet of water (we recommend 200 feet). No Dispersed camping on the east side of Strawberry Road No Dispersed camping in the lower half of Diamond Fork Canyon No Dispersed camping in the lower half of American Fork Canyon.
