Warm days, cool nights and a view of the soaring Uinta Mountains make this quiet, grassy campground an inviting spot to visit. And when you spend a night, you're joining a steady parade of travelers who've stopped here since mountain man Jim Bridger built his trading post along the Oregon and Mormon trails in 1843. The Lyman KOA is a short drive from the re-created post (some original buildings) of Fort Bridger State Historic Site. Visit Labor Day weekend to catch the Mountain Man Rendezvous, complete with black powder and buckskins. You'll find plenty of comforts at the camp-ground, including a pool, basketball, sand volleyball and a pet walk. When you're ready for more adventures, drive an hour east to 91-mile-long Flaming Gorge Reservoir for great boating and fishing plus hiking and biking along mountain trails. Pool: June 1 - September 9. Max pull thru: 75 feet. Your hosts: Clint, Clark and Mary Anderson.
