Overview

Overview

Doctor Creek Campground is located next to Fish Lake in the Fishlake National Forest of central Utah. Visitors enjoy fishing, boating and exploring local trails.

Natural Features:

Doctor Creek sits at at an elevation of 9,000 feet on the southern tip of Fish Lake on Mallard Bay. A series of ponds, known as Coots Slough, dot the area just south of the campground. Aspens and cottonwoods provide limited shade in this sagebrush-covered area. Sites on the outer edge of the campground offer excellent lake views but no shade.

Recreation:

Fish Lake is Utah's largest natural mountain lake, covering 2,500 acres. It is famous for its 20-40 pound Mackinaw lake trout. Anglers also enjoy fishing for rainbow trout and splake. Boating, canoeing, swimming and scuba diving are popular activities.

The scenic Lakeshore National Recreation Trail extends around the eastern side of the lake. Hikers are rewarded with stunning lake views after climbing 900 feet in elevation.

Facilities:

The campground contains two group sites that can accommodate up to 150 people each, both with shelters, tables, campfire rings and grills. Several single-family sites are available as well. Mallard Day Use site is located within the campground.

Flush toilets and drinking water are provided. A dump station is located at the campground entrance. Roads and parking spurs are paved.

Three resorts are located in the Fish Lake Basin, offering camping and fishing supplies, RV parks with hookups, cabin and boat rentals, marinas, gas, restaurants, groceries, laundry facilities and showers. The resorts are open from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Nearby Attractions:

The 5-mile Pelican Canyon Trail begins nearby at Bowery Creek Campground. It leads through meadows and dense forests of spruce, pine and aspen as it climbs to the 11,633-foot Fish Lake Hightop.

Johnson Valley Reservoir is just north of Fish Lake, offering additional fishing and boating opportunities.
