Dixie National Forest Campgrounds

The only fees charged in Dixie National Forest are for camping in the campgrounds. If camping in the Southern Utah area, consider camping in the forest among the multitude of trees and wildlife. Camping in the national parks is crowded, but the more primitive lands of Dixie National Forest are enjoyable for those who want the solitude of pristine nature.

If camping near a beautiful lake is appealing, then Navajo Lake, located along SR-14 in Dixie National Forest is the ticket. There are three campgrounds; Te-ah, Spruces and Navajo Lake. These campgrounds offer abundant aspens to add to the forest scene. Campgrounds are also located across the highway from Duck Creek, and up SR-148 in Cedar Breaks National Monument.

Cedar Breaks Camping
Within the boundaries of Cedar Breaks National Monument there is a 30-site campground with water and a picnic area. Evening programs are held in the campground (in season) by the Cedar Breaks Rangers.
