East Canyon State Park RV & Campground Guide

Utah

Native Americans were the first residents of the land where East Canyon is now located, but the site also served as a resting place for settlers traveling the Oregon Trail. Fast forward about 150 years, and East Canyon State Park was established in 1962. Today, you can go fishing, hiking, and camping at this Utah park, which is located about 15 miles southeast of Morgan and around 20 miles northeast of Park City. If you love water sports, then you will want to visit East Canyon to rent boats and wave runners. The area is also a great place to simply relax and escape the summer heat of the city.
