This is a fun little place, but the thing that sets it apart is that you can feel like your miles away when really you are practically in downtown Ogden. We've had fun camping there.

It's a little seedy and sometimes folks are hanging around that are a little bit scary. They do have a fun mountain man rendezvou.
