With over more than 150 sites, the Jordanelle State Park Campground, also known as the Hailstone Campground, is the biggest and most developed campground in Jordanelle State Park and offers nearly every amenity a needy camper would look for in a campground.
Its sites sprawl over nine loops, plus one with walk-in sites. The campground centers around a total of 86 RV sites with partial hookups, including power and water, along Lower Fisher, Murdock, Wasatch, Dutch Hollow, and Upper Fisher loops. Each site also features a picnic table, fire pit, and grill. In addition, 68 tent campsites are dispersed between the north and south ends of the campground; The McHenry loop in the south offers tent and car sites, while the Keetley Hike-In Campground offers hike-in sites on the north end. Mooring buoys for boats float just offshore from Keetley. Also available is a group campsite and two fully furnished cabins available for rent.
The Jordanelle State Park Campground is integrated into a vast multiple-use area that includes a plethora of activities for campers and day users, so don’t expect this side of the park to remain quiet. A public beach on the east end anchors a busy day use area that includes more than 35 day use cabanas available by reservation, the Beach House, a concessionaire, a general store that also offers boat and board rentals, a boat ramp, and a marina with a fish cleaning station for anglers. In addition, the Hailstone Event Center near the Park Office offers a venue space for weddings and events for 200 people and more. The Park Office itself offers geocache adventures that are great for kids.
These amenities make Jordanelle State Park Campground somewhat extraordinary; Deer Creek State Park to the south is spartan by comparison. Consider that Jordanelle State Park Campground has sweeping views of the Wasatch Mountains and campers will find themselves with a complete and comfortable outdoor campground.
Note: Jordanelle State Park Campground is open from May 1 through October 31.
