Swinging Bridge (UT) Campground Utah

Swinging Bridge (UT) Overview

Swinging Bridge North 004

Swinging Bridge Campground is located in a remote area next to the San Rafael River and near the Buckhorn Draw.  The BLM campground has 3 loops including Swinging Bridge North, Swinging Bridge South and the Equestrian loop. All campsites are first-come, first-serve.

Campsites can accommodate tents, trailers and RVs. Each site also has a table, fire ring and grill. The campground is well maintained but does not have water, trash dumpsters or cell service. Vault toilets are available.

Swinging Bridge North Loop has a few cottonwood trees, which are good for shade in the hot summer months. Swinging Bridge South Loop has some shade structures. The Equestrian Loop has corrals at each site and a central corral area.

The North (loop) campground has 6 sites and all have access to cottonwood tree shade.  The sites are huge and could accommodate 2 to 4 vehicles.  The south (loop) campground sites are much more exposed, but 6 of the 11 sites have shade shelters.  Site 11 does have access to a lone cottonwood tree.  This was a popular spot on an early Saturday in June since Swinging Bridge is a river rafting takeout location.

Area Recreation & Activities

Outdoor recreation in the area includes incredible star gazing, rafting, kayaking, OHV trail riding, rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking, picnicking and wildlife viewing.

Buckhorn Draw is a beautiful canyon with many points of interest. Also nearby is the Wedge Overlook with stunning views of The Little Grand Canyon. This area also is home to Mule Deer, Antelope, and Bighorn Sheep.

Nearby Attractions
