Where to Go Camping: Lincoln Beach

Lincoln Beach is located on the shore of Utah Lake just west of Spanish Fork. but its commanding views of Timpanogos and all lake vistas is stunning. It is a good site for troop camping, fishing, and boating all year, but may be too popular in the summer to find a camping spot.  Personally, I find it close enough for a mutual activity most any evening.

It is maintained as a Utah County Parks and it may seem a bit open for camping; it is nearly treeless but if you want to boat or fish, this is a great location all year long. The site offers eight primitive (no hookup) RV and tent camping sites on a first come first served basis. There are water spigots located within the park.

The boat channel was dredged and they constructed a concrete boat launch and a floating boat dock facilitating access to Utah Lake. A fish cleaning station is also available to clean your catch and prepare it for your cook out!

Campsite fees are $15/night but may change. A large pavilion is available for larger groups plus individual pavilions with picnic tables are open on a first come-first serve basis also. 

The group pavilion holds 100 people and costs $30 for one-time slot or $50 for full-day rental. Call 801-865-8640.
