Our Canyon Camp in Redfish Canyon is ideal for a family backcountry camping experience.

Our Canyon Camp in Redfish Canyon is perfect for family camping or as a base camp for climbing the surrounding peaks. After taking a boat ride across Redfish Lake, Canyon Camp can be reached by an easy 2.5 mile hike. This fully-stocked camp has everything you need for a deluxe camping experience – extra wide (and thick!) Thermarest sleeping pads, sleeping bags, roomy tents (including a 6 person family hotel!) and a full kitchen. This means NO HEAVY PACKS! And given the short approach, it’s a perfect place to take kids for a multi-day getaway!

Just below the camp Redfish Lake Creek slides over granite slabs into picturesque swimming holes. You can even fish for small, but feisty Brook and Cutthroat trout. The Super Slabs climbing area is only 20 minutes away (also great for kids and families!), and day hikes to nearby Saddleback Lakes, or slightly more distant Alpine Lake are great options. Technical and non-technical peaks including the Elephant’s Perch, Mt. Heyburn, and Braxon Peak are nearby as well.

A guide will meet you on the first day to help you get packed and lead you into the camp. They will provide a detailed camp orientation so you know everything you need to have a great time. Once you are comfortably settled in camp, the guide will leave you to enjoy your stay as you please.
