Aspen and mixed conifer forest dominate the habitat here, with mountain meadows and various montane riparian habitat. The campground has 55 camp sites as well as 2 group sites and can be reserved in advance. It is ran by a concessionaire and closed int he winter. A store and other facilities are on site as well. Daniel's Creek "flows" down canyon from here creating wet meadows and some montane riparian habitat. Several trails lead up into the hills and the surrounding habitat. There are also numerous access points to the forest via nearby forest service roads.
Birders typically don't trek here in the winter. I'm not sure if there are feeders, but if there were, they could attract some good high elevation species in search of food. Summer is the ideal time to visit to get away form the hot valleys and enjoy the mountains. The summit is really a tourist destination for OHV users, but the surrounding forest provides plenty of birding opportunities. Form June through September you will be able to find the species typical of the aspen habitat in the area like: RED-NAPED SAPSUCKER, WESTERN WOOD-PEWEE, DUSKY FLYCATCHER, WARBLING VIREO, HOUSE WREN, HERMIT THRUSH, YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER, CHIPPING SPARROW, and WESTERN TANAGER. In the meadows and sage flats you can expect to see MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRD, SAGE THRASHER, VESPER SPARROW, and BREWER'S SPARROW. If you make your way into the forest where there are pine you will come across PINE SISKIN, CASSIN'S FINCH, MOUNTAIN CHICKADEE, and RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH. The area is really great for birding and fairly typical of most similar habitat in the area. If you are looking to explore some place new, the side roads here might make a good day trip.
From the intersection of Main and Center Streets in Heber, follow Main Street / US-40 south for 16.6 miles up Daniel's Canyon till you reach the campground on your right.
