Castle Rock Campground | Fishlake National Forest | Utah


I'm enjoying this campground because of the great scenery.  And especially the fact that I now have trees around and actual shade!


I love these colors against the blue sky.


These rock formations sometimes create a little slot canyon or a little cave-like area of nice cool shade.


There are two campsites in this campground that have actual teepees that you could stay in, as well as a spot for an RV.  How cool is that!
  They are actually quite large and I think it would be fun to stay in one of them.  However the price goes up because it's so special, so I didn't get to stay at those sites.  Since they were vacant I did go in and take some photos though.



The photo below shows the inside of one of the teepees, and this one actually has a rug inside.


It has been overcast for the past couple days and the sun goes down behind the rock formation walls, so there have been no sunsets.  But I did find another different wildflower.  This one is on a very prickly looking bush but the flower itself is interesting because the little reddish part in the middle of the yellow is not a bug, it's a part of plant.

    1. It's definitely cooler here - this place is up at 6000 feet elevation.

  2. What beautiful photos. They make me want to go back to Utah, because I never saw this during my visits there.

  3. Gosh, love these photo's. What an interesting flower that is, too. Teepee's fascinate me and the fine art of putting one up! Glad you're someplace that's a little cooler and offers some shade!!

    1. I just love those teepees. These stay up permanently as far as I can tell. Sure would have liked to stay in one.
