Firefighters Campground is just 3 miles from beautiful Flaming Gorge Reservoir, within the Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area on the Ashley National Forest. The campground serves as a memorial to three firefighters who lost their lives in the 1977 Cart Creek Fire. Visitors enjoy boating, fishing, swimming and hiking.
The campground offers several family sites, six of which are accessible. Each site is equipped with a picnic table and campfire ring; some sites have grills. Flush toilets, drinking water and a dump station are available. Roads and parking spurs within the campground are paved. Firewood is available for purchase from the host. Public showers are available 2.5 miles away at Deer Run Campground. Bootleg Amphitheater, with a screen support and bleacher seating for 120 people, is located just across the road. Educational programs are offered throughout the summer season. A scenic overlook dedicated to the firefighters is located on-site.
Flaming Gorge Dam offers guided tours of the working hydroelectric plant and the dam, and the adjacent visitor center contains area history exhibits. The Green River below the dam provides spectacular rafting opportunities. A trip down the river offers unique geology, outlaw history and Native American rock art.
The campground is situated on a gently-sloping hillside dotted with shady ponderosa pines and juniper, at an elevation of 6,900 feet.
Bear Canyon Trail begins across the road from the campground, offering hiking and biking opportunities. This easy 3-mile round-trip trail leads to views of Red Canyon and Flaming Gorge.

What type of RV should I choose?
Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.
You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.
