Willard Bay is a freshwater reservoir located 12 miles northwest of Ogden on the flood plains of the Great Salt Lake. Several short trails are located in the campground area of the north marina. Boat, swim, waterski, and fish on the warm waters of Willard Bay. Camp under tall cottonwood trees that frame the night sky. During winter months, Willard Bay is a wildlife watching area for nesting eagles. Two areas, North and South Marinas, offer all the amenities for a weekend at the Bay.

Car Camping at its average. It was easy to get all 26 of our scouts and 7 leaders a place to sleep but the train came through at 2:00 am and the freeway is only a stones throw away...

It's fun to camp here once a year. The trail is fine, but there are always loads of mosquitoes so I don't use the trail often.

Camp here at least once a year. I try to go in the off season as to avoid the crowds. I have hiked all the trails this park has to offer and spent many hours reeling in fat catfish and yummy walleye. If you have a boat you will enjoy the wiper fishing.

Not really any trails to follow, this is mainly a large bird watching area. The kids, dog, and I did have fun in the tall grass and the amenities were very nice. We'll be coming back to camp.
