No established camping at all. Just a narrow dirt road to a dead end where the canyon starts. 10 miles up Nephi Canyon is Ponderosa and Bear Canyon Campgrounds though.

Dispersed (undeveloped) camping is allowed by the road on the National Forest land (per forest ranger at SF Ranger Station). There is a small barricade at the end of the dirt road indicating the start of the Mt Nebo Wilderness boundary. Camping is also allowed in the wilderness following normal wilderness rules.
