Maple Canyon Alert! The land at the mouth of Maple Canyon as well as along the road before the Forest Service sign is private property. The landowners have asked that if you want to park or stay the night on their property that you give a donation of $8/night and $3/day. There are donation boxes. You can also call to reserve a spot on the private property at 435.851.1486. Please respect this private property and use the restrooms in the upper canyon for now. Note that car camping in day use parking spots is NOT allowed in the upper canyon on the Forest Service property.
