Payson Lakes Primitive Campground

Near Salem UT 84653 - This is a primitive camping area that is in the National Forest along the Mount Nebo Scenic Loop and is designated as a formal camping area. It is just a little North of the Payson Lakes day use area and on the opposite side of the road. There are no services available there, but depending on the season etc you may be able to access water and/or a pit toilet at the day use area or the formal Payson Lakes Campground. However, you may be charged a fee to enter the day use and formal campground areas. The whole area is wooded with lots of pines and aspens. The entire camping area is unpaved with an initial incline down into the area. If it is rainy and wet it may be slippery and difficult to get in and out of. This is an especially beautiful area in the fall when the aspen turn bright yellow. There is a lot of wildlife here as well, so you may see or hear deer, bear, wolves, moose, squirrels, etc. There are hiking trails available close by and the Nebo Loop is a beautiful drive.
