Campsite Review: Hyrum Lake State Park Campground insider info:
This campground is nearly overrun during the weekend. Nearly all the campsites were full of campers visiting from a nearby town for a baseball tournament. They arrived on Thursday and departed on Sunday afternoon. Pictures below are after the exodus.
This is a good example of how some people, going camping don’t make any attempt to stay at their campsite or stay quiet. This problem was only in September, not May. The problem was out of control in September because the campground was left to the campers with zero supervision from anyone in the park. The camp host was gone for the season and the employees didn’t show up at night. Telephones in the office were set to the recording mode. On Friday night, the ranger showed up and shut down all the noise at 9:30 solving the problem.
The other noise problem was the boaters and jet skis on the lake. However, in September the noise was not nearly as bad as it was during the first week of May.
Of course, on Sunday evening, the place was wonderful. The boats pulled out and all the partiers went home.
We think that we had the best campsite in the campground, we were able to enter our site backwards. This enabled us to face the water.
There is a large drop-off from all the campsites to the water level — especially in the fall.
The lake is the big bonus at Hyrum, however your experience may differ depending on the time of year (in the fall, the water level is very low).
The ski boats on the weekends made this lake not suitable for kayaking. For the rest of the week, kayaking would have been very nice. In September, we were ready but the campground was so nice, we just sat and watched the sunset instead.
