Overview

Firefighters Campground is just 3 miles from beautiful Flaming Gorge Reservoir, within the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area on the Ashley National Forest. The campground serves as a memorial to three firefighters who lost their lives in the 1977 Cart Creek Fire. Visitors enjoy boating, fishing, swimming and hiking.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on a gently-sloping hillside dotted with shady ponderosa pines and juniper, at an elevation of 6,900 feet.

Recreation:

Bear Canyon Trail begins across the road from the campground, offering hiking and biking opportunities. This easy 3-mile round-trip trail leads to views of Red Canyon and Flaming Gorge.

Beautiful Flaming Gorge Reservoir is just 3 miles from the campground. The reservoir is known for its world-class fishing for lake, brown and rainbow trout.

Boating, water skiing, jet skiing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and scuba diving are also popular activities.

Facilities:

The campground offers several family sites, six of which are accessible. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring; some sites have grills.

Flush toilets, drinking water and a dump station are provided. Roads and parking spurs within the campground are paved. Firewood is available for purchase from the host.

Public showers are available 2.5 miles away at Deer Run Campground.

Bootleg Amphitheater, with a screen support and bleacher seating for 120 people, is located just across the road. Educational programs are offered throughout the summer season. A scenic overlook dedicated to the firefighters is located on-site.
