CAMPGROUND NAME: Pleasant Creek VISIT DATE: 06/05/2001 UPDATE DATE: 5/20/2016 STATE: Utah REGION: Intermountain RANGER DISTRICT: Fremont River NEAREST CITY/TOWN: Torrey RESERVATIONS: No DIRECTIONS: In Torrey, UT, at intersection of State Rts. 24 and 12, take Rt. 12 south 17.3 miles to campground sign. Turn left at first sign into the upper section of campground and 0.1 miles further up Rt. 12, turn left at second sign into the lower section. GENERAL COMMENTS: The elevation is 8,700 ft. NOTE: Although this campground is located in Dixie National Forest, it is administered by Fishlake National Forest, Fremont River Ranger District. The campground is composed of two sections, upper and lower, 0.1 miles apart on State Rt. 12. Mature Ponderosa pine shade most of the sites, but lack of understory provide minimal privacy between camp sites. Some sites are adjacent to Pleasant Creek, the sounds from which can be heard throughout most of the campground. Although traffic noise from State Rt. 12 can be distracting, the campground is an excellent overnight stop. For those staying longer than one night, this is a good base camp for at least two outstanding day trips. One is to drive north on State Rts. 12 and 24 about 20 miles to the Capitol Reef National Park. The other is to drive southwest, again on State Rt. 12, to Escalante through a portion of the Escalante-Grand Staircase National Monument. The views are spectacular; bring a picnic lunch.

The camp sites on the outside of the loop are among large, mature Ponderosa pine with the sites on the southeast side providing a panoramic view of a meadow in the foreground and Henry Mountains in the background.

The trail is moderately steep and rocky and hiking boots are recommended. The trail literature says its length is one mile one way, but it is more like one mile round trip.
