Camp Details:

South Hughes Group Campground is located in beautiful Huntington Canyon along the Huntington Canyon National Scenic Byway on Utah Highway 31 at an elevation of approximately 8,000 feet. Large spruce trees offer plentiful shade, and grassy meadows and thick stands of aspens surround the site. Huntington Creek runs across the road from the campground and offers a Blue Ribbon Fishery for brown, cutthroat, and rainbow trout. The canyon area has numerous lakes and streams, vibrant summer wildflowers, colorful fall foliage, and abundant wildlife. Popular activities include fishing, hunting, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, rock climbing, and scenic driving. The 4-mile Left Fork of the Huntington National Recreation Trail, for hiking and horses, is nearby, as is the 10-mile Fish Creek Trail, for hiking, biking, and horses.



This campground has one reservable group site that can accommodate up to 100 people, with picnic tables, serving tables, a grill, and a fire ring with benches. An accessible vault toilet is provided, but there is no water, electricity, or garbage service. This is a "pack it in, pack it out" site and all trash must be removed upon departure. The road and large parking area within South Hughes Group are dirt. Grassy areas provide nice spots for tents. Beyond the group site are several individual walk-in tent sites that are available on a first come, first served basis. Parking is below the tent sites, and you must walk a short distance to reach them. These sites have a picnic table and fire ring.



The Huntington Canyon National Scenic Byway is part of the 86-mile Energy Loop, and offers stunning mountain and lake views as it tops 10,000 feet in elevation. The historic Stuart Guard Station Visitor Center is nearby, offering a glimpse of the 1930s life of a ranger and his family who once lived there. Exhibits of CCC work and original equipment are on display, and area information is available as well.
