There’s one spot left without tree the rest people have used to dump trash unfortunately
easy to get into zion, a little hot during the night but easy to find a place with shade.
It’s easy to miss the turn onto the dirt road, so definitely scout it out on Google maps ahead of time. The road can be muddy and rutted after a rain, so take weather into account. That said, we got our 30 year old 30 foot motorhome in and out multiple times.
All around a great spot. Right next to the creek, generally quiet with few other campers. Nice and dark at night for star gazing, and shade trees for during the day. Tons of hiking in every direction, and Zion is close by.
The area was beautiful, but the campsites don't have tables or firepits. There was also a huge cattle ranch near where we camped, and the noise made it hard to sleep.
We love camping here and come often. We would usually visit between the months of March-Early November. Spring and fall bring sunny days and cool evenings and mornings. During the warmer summer months we take to the water. The temperature is always a bit cooler than in town. There are no fees but also no amenities. So please, if you pack it in then you need to pack it out. Bring plenty of water for drinking and cleaning. Make sure to plan ahead for bathroom/ shower needs as those are not available. If you follow the river you can find some spots with good shade. We usually find a spot near to the river in lower sunset, some spots around the bends are deep enough to swim. There is a lot of hiking nearby as well as horse trails. The kids really enjoyed hunting for crawdads, watching the tadpoles/frogs, and the cows as they would cross through for water. The nights are dark and allows for an awesome night of stargazing.
Great spot to get you near the park
This area is amazing. I would say medium in ways of getting to the back campsite. You would need some clearance to get across the creek.
Unmarked sites next to a creek. The area is on the right side of the road.
We were here for a long weekend & it was unreal. There’s a TON of space and it was great for mountain biking. Highly recommend.
We did bonfires & outdoor stoves and had no issue with “dry heat”. There were tons of baby cactus everywhere, which made it all feel extra desert-y.
Not paying for a camp site was nice however, good spots were taken very VERY early, and absolutely zero shade in the hot sun. Had to leave camp site early because of heat and couldn’t come back until sun was down. There is a small stream right up the road. Video shows part of drive to Zion and only short drive to Zion from campsite. This place offered a quiet secluded camping spot which would’ve been enjoyable not in summer months
