Nice walking, running, camping, and dog park

The dog park area is really great. The river runs next to the trails and there are a lot of trees! A great place for a walk away from it all and dog friendly.

We visited on the day after a concert of some kind. As we strolled around we found there were little camps everywhere. It was hot and the pond was stagnant. The water wasn't pleasing and we were afraid of mosquitoes. We visited on Sunday, and the fort was closed. Our granddaughter played on the playground for a little while, but... More

We thought the fort would be a good spot to visit on our one day in Ogden. But when we got there, the fort was locked up. The park attendant was too busy on the phone to let us in, so we left without seeing the fort.

It is just a park with a couple of baseball diamonds and a very small wooden fort. The staff, if that is what they were, said nothing to us.

You should know what to expect if you plan on camping here. You'll probably experience the sounds of trains, birds, families having fun, and maybe even black powder rifles across the pond. We've stayed here many nights (In RV's), and nearly always have had an enjoyable time. We can leave the house with the trailer and be here in 15... More

I've lived in Utah all of my life, and in the Ogden area for the majority of it. I had never been here prior to my visit, and and state that I will never need to go back. This is billed as a state park, but there is no visible proof of that. There are a couple, maybe three semi-authentic... More

My sister reserved a bowery for our family reunion. I did not realize Ogden had this place. Unlikely location but surprisingly family friendly. Lots to do (We took our bikes). Clear restrooms. Old Fort and Indian TeePees. It was fun. I recommend it.

I visited Fort Buenaventura with my adult son who lives in the area but had never been there. i am from upstate NY, visit Utah once a year and thought it would be an interesting place to visit. It was. Even though it was UT summer hot that day there are many shady places to walk within the Fort's grounds.... More

Hit the Weber River and try your fishing skills in the Weber. Off the main drag picnic, camp, fish..and maybe catch the Raptors practicing. I saw a Boston team tossing it around with the Raptors a few years ago. They have a pioneer reinactment every year.
