Located on the eastern slope of the beautiful Wellsville Mountain range, Maple Rise Camp is midway between the Cache Valley towns of Wellsville and Mendon. This secluded maple forest area consists of approximately ninety acres bordering the Wellsville Wilderness Area and offers an excellent heavily wooded forest trail loop to Cold Water Lake. Though more of a pond than a lake, the chance to see wild turkeys, mule deer, moose and wild flowers make this five mile hike a very desirable Maple Rise experience.

Major improvements include: showers and restrooms in both the upper and lower camps, a pavilion, culinary water, fire rings at each camp, signed trails, flagpoles, an amphitheater and picnic tables. A volleyball court and a “story trail” are also offered amenities. There is a beautiful view of Cache Valley from a spot called Cedar Sunrise Point. It is located a short hike above the amphitheater and is very popular for star gazing, testimony sharing and viewing the sunrise of a new day.

The two major camping areas can easily be configured to accommodate groups of 8 to 88 in the lower camp or 8 to 112 campers in the upper camp for a total of 200. As Missionary Camp Hosts we invite you to come and enjoy the Maple Rise experience.

Note: The Martin Harris Pageant is held in August in Clarkston, Utah, a thirty minute drive away. The beautiful Logan Temple is twenty minutes away. Hyrum Dam, where groups can enjoy boating and swimming, is also just minutes away.
