Logan Canyon Campgrounds to Stay Open Until Second Week of October

The US Forest Service has announced that it will keep several popular campgrounds in Logan Canyon (Utah) open until the second weekend of October.

According to a report, the planned closure of Guinivah Malibu Campground is expected to be prolonged.

Last Friday, Forest Service officials announced campgrounds in the Preston Valley, Wood Camp, Bridger, Spring Hollow and Lodge areas will be available until October 9 if the weather permits. The majority of campsites are on a first-come, first-served basis.

The campgrounds further up Logan Canyon around Tony Grove Lake and Sunrise at the summit are also expected to remain open until October 9. 

Meanwhile, the crews are completing a full renovation of the Guinivah Malibu Campground, which is anticipated to last at least two more years. The campground was shut down in 2021 to allow for reconstruction.

Shortly after the campground’s closure, northern Utah was hit with an early snowstorm, leading officials to conclude that the trees surrounding the campground posed a risk and required removal. The crews have been clearing the trees. However, the process took longer than expected.

Guinivah-Malibou Campground was built in 1936. It has access to small and large campsites, picnic spots and trailheads to the Crimson and Riverside trails, and a historic amphitheater.
