Stanton Creek Campground at Lake Powell

Stanton Creek Campground is located near Bullfrog Marina on the shoreline of Lake Powell. This picturesque location has commanding views of Halls Crossing Marina and Lake Powell’s main channel. The campsite area is large & sprawling with several dirt roads navigating the site. While it is “primitive camping” (no designated campsites or fire pits, etc.) there are many flat and sandy campsites which provide an ideal setting for tents, tables, campfires and parking your vehicle. Cars can navigate much of the area, but some roads require 4WD vehicles. Visitors with boat trailers can leave them at the campsite entrance in the main parking lot. The area has several small coves and inlets with varying degrees of sand and rock providing shelter from the channel and opportunities for anchoring boats or personal watercraft. Public toilets are placed throughout the site, although there is no running water. For a printable PDF guide with maps & directions click here.
