Duck Creek Campground
Stage 1 fire restrictions are now in effect. Fires are allowed in this campground, but are prohibited in most of Dixie National Forest. The news and events section of the Forest Service website will usually provide updates for current fire restrictions.
The largest campground on the Cedar City Ranger District, the Duck Creek Campground is located 28 miles east of Cedar City on SR 14 at an elevation of 8,600 feet. It is normally open from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Immediately adjacent to Duck Lake and Duck Creek, both excellent fisheries, the Duck Creek Campground is also one of the hubs of the 408-mile Markagunt All-terrain Vehicle (ATV) Trail System.
Duck Creek Campground has 87 single units, four double units and two triple units, as well as the Ponderosa, Duck Creek, Wagon Train and Roundup group camping areas. Ponderosa and Duck Creek can accommodate up to 150 people each, and Wagon Train and Roundup allow up to 50. The group sites are arranged around four paved loop roads. Each unit includes a table and fire ring.
This campground has a separate ATV parking lot due to the close proximity and popularity of the nearby ATV trail system; however, ATVs are not permitted in the campground.
