Yuba State Park, Utah

It’s that time of year…camping time!!!

The snow is melting and it’s great weather to sit around the campfire,  drink moonshine and eat s’mores!

My in-laws picked Yuba State Park.  I’ve never heard of this place and I was excited because it was only 80 miles from our house!  Just 100 miles south of Salt Lake City.

I’m not usually one for camping at campgrounds.  My husband and I like to head out to BLM land where there’s nobody to see for miles.

My in-laws are traveling around in an RV so we decided to pitch a tent right outside of their home on wheels.  This was probably one of the coolest campsites I’ve ever been to.


Lake front with a beautiful view!

The nights got cold so we only slept in the tent 1 out of the 3 nights.  Our dog Jack just couldn’t hang.  He kept knocking over the heater and he wouldn’t climb into the sleeping bag with us.

I’m not sure sleeping in the RV was any warmer though.  My father-in-law doesn’t believe in heaters and it was like the frozen tundra in there.

My favorite thing about this park was all the jeep and 4wheeler trails.  We explored for hours and found some really fun 4×4 rocks to climb!



We did a little kayaking.  Forrest and his dad did a little fishing.  Jim caught 2 walleyes that were pretty tasty!





The only thing I hated was all the stickers all over the beach.  Jack got the brunt of it.  They got stuck all between his paws and all on his beard:(


There is a ton of wildlife to see.  We saw bunnies and jack rabbits bouncing.  So bring your pellet gun…JK I would never do that.





Would I go back to Yuba State Park?

Hell yea I would!  It’s so close and there is so much to do.  I highly recommend this place and  give it 4.5 stars.  I would give it 5 if they would clean up those damn stickers.  I know my dog would greatly appreciate it.
