Boondocking out there!

This area is BLM on the Salt Valley Road outside Arches NP. The last 3.3 miles of BLM road before Arches NP is closed to camping. But prior to that no camping restriction there are several large open spots that can handle large campers. Bonus is that cell service is very good due to line of sight to the Interstate to the north. Note that the section of road the camping is most scenic is also the part of the road that is bentonite clay, so be WARNED ...stay out of this area if wet conditions are expected. County road in from Hwy 191 to "y" junction of BLM 145/146 is a good gravel graded road, but NOT into Salt Valley. So again, avoid this area if wet conditions are forecast!! The huge sandstone walls are very scenic and there are great picture taking areas. Seems rock climbers like these massive walls also. Classic Boondocking conditions here, no water, toilets, trash, tables or designated sites. BLM has marked some areas with no camping signs.
