Decent BLM Camping Near Vernal

We stayed here during the summer of 2020 due to its proximity to Vernal. It’s a decent enough campground, it’s very well maintained by BLM rangers which is probably the best part about it. Communal picnic tables at a couple of sites and clean pit toilets.

Due to its proximity to Pelican Lake, the sites are VERY buggy, at least they were during the summertime. It was bearable but I would definitely suggest bringing netting of some kind or one of those cheap bug jackets. There isn’t a lot of cover in the slightest, so site privacy is minimal and one can see very easily between each site. Fortunately, during our visit on a weekday, the campground wasn’t at all crowded, so it felt a lot more private than it probably would on a weekend. One upside of our stay was that we got to see some Pronghorns, photo included.

If you’re in the Vernal area, this is a nice, cheap campsite that will definitely suit your needs for primitive camping. I can’t remember the price exactly, but it was between $10-$15 a night and you pay in a BLM dropbox through an honor system.
