PARK CITY, Utah — According to a study by Adventures on the Rock, Utah is the seventh most popular state for camping. From the multiple national parks to many areas of open land, there is a lot to choose from. While that remains true, many of those areas are likely to see opening dates for this year’s camping season delayed.
The U.S. Forest Service announced yesterday that multiple campsites and day-use areas in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest east of Kamas could have delayed openings by at least two weeks. This doesn’t come as a surprise as the record snowpack continues to climb. Multiple areas simply have too much snow that will make access impossible.
