Mainly an agricultural community, the town is located 3 miles (4.8 km) southeast of Fielding and almost directly west of Riverside, at coordinates (441.7746496, -112.0949517). Its elevation is 4,432 feet (1,351 m). Although it is unincorporated, it has a post office, with the ZIP code of 84306.
The town was originally known as Hampton or Hampton Ford. It was named for Ben Hampton, who, with William Godbe, operated a toll ferry across the Bear River from 1867 to 1868. James Standing later bought the ferry and bridge rights and moved the town to higher ground 1 mile (1.6 km) east. The name was changed to Collinston, after Utah Northern Railroad conductor Collins Fulmer.
