East Canyon - Mormon Flats Campground

East Canyon - Mormon Flats Campground
East Canyon Reservoir is nestled in the mountains northeast of Salt Lake City on State Routes 65 and 66. Although popular with water recreationists, East Canyon is also an attraction for history buffs. Nearby trails mark the steps of the Donner Party and the first Mormon settlers. The main campground is located at the northern end of reservoir. The boat launch ramp is located near the campground. Campfire programs are held each weekend from Memorial Day through Labor Day. A large primitive campground is located at the southern end of the reservoir, with plenty of room for overflow campers. A concessionaire provides boat rentals and refreshments.
