Oak Grove Campground is as its name suggest a campground with a "grove", or several groves. The general habitat in the area is mixed Gambel's Oak woodland, but one of the main birding features here is actually a "grove" of Ponderosa Pine at the campground. A small road goes through the campgorund, with a short loop to camp sites. There is a trail head heading up into the hills form the parking area. There is a day use and picnic area as well. The road to the campground is dirt for over 6 miles and climbs up through mixed Pinyon-Juniper Woodlands and Oak woodlands, as well as riparian and arid desert habitats.
The small campground is an easy place to get a good number of specialty birds. Several of the highlights here include all 3 western nuthatches--RED-BREASTED, WHITE-BREASTED, and PYGMY NUTHATCH. All 3 nest here and can be picked up fairly easily. During hte breeding season GRACE'S, VIRGINIA'S, YELLOW-RUMPED, and BLACK-THROATED GRAY WARBLER can all be seen here. DUSKY and CORDILLERAN FLYCATCHER can both be found around the campground, while WARBLING and PLUMBEOUS VIREO are present as well. WESTERN TANAGER, HAIRY WOODPECKER, CHIPPING SPARROW, and SPOTTED TOWHEE are all common breeders as well. During fall migration this is one of the few locations in Utah where HERMIT WARBLER is recorded. The road is closed in the winter when there is too much snow, and has been closed in the summer due to fires.
