A very interesting camping site. It has a small body of water, as well as some tipis and a fort! Individual an group sites are available. The host are very helpful as well.

Fort Buenaventura is one of those hidden treats that the Ogden area has to offer. Just over the bridge off off 24th street, you will find Fort Buenaventura, with its base ball park, trails, camping sites, a pond and a whole lot of history.
