Off the Grid dispersed BLM campsites

This was one of the more surreal Blm land camping sites I had ever come across, camp underneath towering buttes for miles and miles, totally dispersed from other campers in breathtaking views.

Great Place to Rest

We drove 16 hours from WA and needed someplace to sleep so this dispersed campground was a great find. We pull in in the middle of the night only to wake up and find ourselves among the red rocks. There are absolutely no amenities here, but there are several established sites with fire pits. Good views and a good spot close to the park if you're okay with going without water and plumbing for the night.

Near west entrance to park

Easy park and sleep spot with gorgeous sunrise views. We were just off the 24 no amenities. Photo taken as we were leaving the spot.

Great area

There are lots of areas for dispersed camping for any size rig and almost any size group. I plan on making this a regular area to go camping at every year.

Nice and chill

With camping on upper and lower portion, we camped on upper portion over looking the stream. Beautiful spot just outside the park!

Gem

Great flat spot at the river bend hidden from view with a fire pit and the river a stone’s throw away. Cool down and camp out in style.

All the Splendor, half the crowds

This gem, not far out of Castledale Utah is a real treat. It's perfect for a quick weekend or day trip, and has enough to do to support a longer stay. To start, the canyon rim is breathtaking, having coffee in the morning as the sun rises, or a cocktail or wine as it sets just puts your soul back in alignment again. There are some official campsites, however they were full and we had to dry, primitive camp. This was more than fine because we got to be closer to the rim, had privacy and was still relatively close to the vault toilets. This is a have to see it place, and its perfect for larger families with ample room. ATVS are a common recreation in the area so if you have one this is perfect. This is Desert, so it will be hot. This is also Mountainous so it might get cold fast, so pack accordingly. Food is a pretty good drive away, but not terrible, water is scarce as you would imagine. Bring plenty of both. Pack in pack out. Enjoy.

Close to U.M. Creek. The views are amazing!!

This is a GEM if you like to not see a lot of people and love the outdoors. This is a first come first serve camp area and there is no picnic tables and few out houses so please pack out your garbage and keep this area beautiful. There is some amazing fly fishing in the creeks and lakes in this area. The dirt road is well maintained and you can get a car or truck or trailer in no problem. Lots of amazing trails for side by sides and 4 wheelers.

Amazing views of Sand Creek wash and red rocks.

This is a nice little Gem. It has tent spots for $20 a night, RV hook ups and nice little cabins for $45 or a deluxe cabin for $65 a night. There is a store on site and it is still close to town. Picnic tables, and fire pits at each spot and lots of shade. This is a really nice camping spot. Close to Capitol Reef or the Boulder mountain and also lots of great jeep trails up Sand creek road. This is God's country.

Trees near the river

Great little area with trees near the river. Awesome hammock trees. Swimming holes in the river.
