Jordanelle State Park, site #90

We’re parked at site #90 at Jordanelle State Park on the Jordanelle Reservoir about halfway between Park City and Hebor City, UT.  Arriving without a reservation, the front gate assigned us to site 90, a somewhat short back-in site on the Wasatch Loop, closest to the lake.  RV parking is available in about 100 sites at the Hailstone Campground, organized around 4 loops and one long row of pull-through sites.  A mix of back-in and pull-throughs with 86 sites of partial hookups (electric/water) and 14 sites with full hookups (electric/water/sewer).  There are also 40 small RV or tent dry sites at the McHenry Loop and 28 walk-in tent sites at Keetley Point.  Nearly all of these sites are reservable online.  At the Hailstone RV section, there are 3 toilet/shower buildings and one central camper services building that provides toilet, shower and laundry facilities.  There is also a dump station available.

In addition to water and electric, sites provide a picnic table, fire ring and BBQ pit on a large cement pad.  The loops are organized across a hillside, so nearly all sites have some type of views across the water.  Some favorites include #90, our site, which provides good lake views as well as good privacy from other nearby sites.  It has a good shade and a fairly flat tent pad.  Site #76 is a long lakeside pull-through site with some shade.  Site #53 – 44 are perched on the edge of the Lower Fisher loop providing great views, but not a lot of shade.  #34 is a very private back-in along the same loop, but without much of a view. Over the air TV was nearly non-existent here, but with blazingly fast T-Mobile service, we could stream nearly anything we wanted to watch.  This is a great Utah State Park and one we’d return to.

We’ll continue east along highway 40 tomorrow, with a planned stop somewhere around Vernal, UT.  More from there…
