Jordanelle - Rockcliff Area Campground

Jordanelle - Rockcliff Area Campground
Jordanelle Reservoir is located in a picturesque mountain setting near Heber City. The park offers a wide array of recreational opportunities through two state-operated facilities.

Hailstone Recreation Area: Located on the west shore, Hailstone serves as Jordanelle State Park's main recreational facility and park headquarters. This site has become one of the most heavily visited recreational areas in the state due to its location and facilities. Hailstone serves thousands of visitors each year from boaters and campers, to hikers and equestrians.

Surrounded by rolling hills and majestic mountain peaks, Hailstone offers picturesque camping with nearly 200 campsites, for both RV's as well as tents.

The waters of Jordanelle provide recreational opportunities for many people, including boaters, waterskiers, fishermen, jet skiers, and swimmers. The reservoir is also an important resting area for many migratory waterfowl and other birds. The open, rolling land serves as habitat for many plant and animal species.

Rock Cliff Recreation Area: Located on the Provo River two miles west of Francis on State Route 32. Rock Cliff offers visitors the unique opportunity to interact with this beautiful riparian environment. Elevated boardwalks and well maintained trails guide visitors through the upland sage and wetland areas, leading to a breathtaking view of the Provo River as it enters the Jordanelle Reservoir.

Rock Cliff's 100 acres of protected habitat attracts abundant wildlife. Nearly 200 species of birds, including the Bald Eagle, and many small mammals such as mink, fox and beaver find safe haven here. Rock Cliff is also home to a few larger mammals such as moose, deer, elk and mountain lion.

This pristine area provides nature enthusiasts and students alike with numerous possibilities for discovery. Although a part of Jordanelle State Park, Rock Cliff is unique in a variety of ways. Whereas the Hailstone Recreation Area functions as the park's headquarters and major recreational complex, Rock Cliff's major emphasis lies in education, interpretation, and low-impact recreational experiences.

In keeping with this theme, a Nature Center and boardwalk system were created to protect and preserve the surrounding riparian and wetland ecosystem. To protect this area and at the same time provide a quality camping experience for our visitors, a secluded walk-in tent campground was established, nestled among the beautiful cottonwood/aspen forest found along the Provo River.
