Camping at Duck Creek

Camping at Duck Creek Utah one summer I got a chance to teach the family a few new things about having fun in the great outdoors. This started out as a weekend trip but ended up a little different than I expected. After driving a few hours to get to Duck Creek we stopped in town to pick up a fishing license and some supplies. We took a brief walk around town and found out a little about the history of the place then headed out to find a campground. It looked like we could just pull off the road anywhere and camp, but we decided to set up at an established site, Duck Creek Campground . We found a great spot and set up the tent. After a little work and some help from my boy, we had a campfire ring that would be used when the sun went down later on. I grabbed my Fly rod and we headed off to find some Rainbow Trout out on the creek. We didn’t catch any fish, didn’t even get a bite, but it was a great time to talk about all the things that don’t normally come up at home. Got back to the camp and got some Chili put together in the Dutch Oven. We had dinner, started a campfire and roasted some marshmallows. Around midnight a rainstorm moved in, everyone got grumpy so we packed up and went home. Sometimes it just doesn’t work out the way you planned it, but any trip is a good trip.
