Overview

White Bridge Campground is located just 12 miles southwest of Panguitch, Utah and 55 miles northeast of Cedar City. Visitors enjoy fishing, canoeing on nearby Panguitch Lake and exploring local trails.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated high on the Colorado Plateau at an elevation of 7,900 feet. Panguitch Creek runs alongside the campground. Cottonwoods line the creek and aspens, pinion and juniper dot the sagebrush-covered landscape.

Recreation:

Campers enjoy fishing for rainbow trout in Panguitch Creek. Hiking and biking are popular activities around the campground. The Panguitch Lake ATV Trail System offers 100+ miles of trails and can be accessed nearby.

Facilities:

White Bridge offers several family campsites. The sites along the creek have natural shade, while the sites across the loop road are more open and equipped with picnic shelters for shade. Flush and vault toilets are provided, as is drinking water and a dump station.

Nearby Attractions:

White Bridge is just 6 miles from Panguitch Lake. Some of the state's largest rainbow trout are fished from the lake each year, and aptly so; "Panguitch" comes from the Paiute word meaning "big fish."

Anglers will also find brook, cutthroat and brown trout. Canoeing is a popular activity on this small body of water. Boat ramps are located on the south shore and at Wildlife Point.

Cedar Breaks National Monument, with hiking trails and guided tours, is 16 miles from White Bridge.

Just outside Cedar Breaks is the Ashdown Gorge Wilderness Area, where hikers will find 10 miles of trails and the Twisted Forest, a stand of ancient bristlecone pine.

Bryce Canyon National Park is just over an hour away, with breathtaking scenery and excellent hiking opportunities.
