Devils Canyon Campground is a low-elevation conifer forest comprised mostly of Ponderosa Pine and Gambel's Oak Woodlands. The campground has 2 loops--one through the pines and one through the oak.
If you are driving between Monticello and Blanding this is a must stop for birds. There are a number of specialty birds here that are easy t pickup and can be done so almost year round. The best birding happens between April and October, and one of the reasons to go birding here is specifically for ACORN WOODEPCKER--a species that has been reliable here for over a decade. This species i often observed form Hwy 191 looking into the two ravines coming down form the campground. It can also be seen in the campground with some luck. PYGMY NUTHATCH is also found here year round and a fairly easy pickup. If you like nocturnal birding this is one of the best locations in the state for NORTHERN SAW-WHET OWL as well. Other birds commonly encountered here include WESTERN BLUEBIRD, BUSHTIT, RED CROSSBILL, and during the breeding season, GRACE'S WARBLER.
