(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Utah placed six campgrounds in a new list of the nation's top 100.
The list of America's best family campgrounds is put together by ReserveAmerica, the country's largest reservation management group. The group says the list was complied with information from park rangers, campers and others.
Nearly 3,000 parks were reviewed.
But six Utah parks -- Antelope Island, Bear Lake, Dead Horse Point, Red Fleet, Wasatch Mountain and Willard Bay -- bubbled to the top.
Selection to the list was based on "family-friendly criteria" ranging from educational programs, visitor centers, camping amenities and overall beauty and scenery.
