About the Campground

Rock Canyon Campground is located on scenic Squaw Peak Road, far above Utah Valley, at an elevation of 6,500 feet, and is forested with thick stands of maple, scrub oak, and fir trees, which offer plentiful shade. Grassy meadows and wildflowers dot this beautiful campground. This isolated, primitive campground provides a perfect get away from the business down below. Rock Canyon Trail leaves from the campground and offers excellent hiking and biking, and Squaw Peak Trail to the summit can be accessed just before the campground. Rock Canyon is a rock climber's paradise, with hundreds of climbing routes available. Squaw Peak Road is open to mountain biking as well. Stunning views of Rock Canyon and a sliver of Utah Valley and Provo are visible from a turnout just before the campground. This campground contains four group sites, each named after a notable figure in US Forest Service history. Sites contain group picnic tables and fire rings, and some have serving tables.
