The public will be able to reserve the group site in advance by contacting the Salt Lake Field Office at 801-977-4300. All collected fees are used directly for the operating costs at the campground, such as sanitation, site maintenance, customer service, administration, and law enforcement. The need for new fees developed due to increased operating costs over the years and was identified in the BLM Salt Lake Field Office Campground Business Plan. 

Feature Photo

Salt Lake Helitack Line Dig BLM Firefighter Travis Wade was the winner of the January 2016 photo contest for this shot of the Salt Lake Helitack Crew building fire line on the Murder's Creek Fire, a Type I incident in Oregon. Salt Lake Helitack is a nine-person crew.  The Crew consists of a Helitack Supervisor, Assistant Supervisor, two Squad Leaders, and five Helitack Firefighters.  Several additional Helitack Firefighter positions may be added when severity conditions exist.

The Salt Lake Field Office participates with interagency fire partners within eleven counties in northwestern Utah, covering over 3 million acres.  The field office fire program is a complex organization with responsibilities in suppression, planning, fuel hazard reduction, aviation, mitigation, and prevention.  Eighty-six percent of the State's population lives within the field office boundaries.

About Us

The Salt Lake Field Office is located in the northwest corner of Utah and encompasses 3.3 million acres of public lands. Much of this area is part of the Great Basin region, a place of isolated mountain ranges separated by desert playas and wide sweeping sagebrush flats. 

This area is also a land of illusions, floating islands and vanishing water mirages. Almost touching the Utah-Nevada border are the Bonneville Salt Flats, a unique expanse of pure, white salt crust. This geological oddity is world-renowned as the location of international landspeed racing. Just south of the Salt Flats lies the Pony Express Trail, where young riders risked their lives from 1860-61 delivering the mail from Missouri to California in only 10 days.  [more] To learn more about opportunities on your public lands, please contact or visit our office.
