Great Dispersed Camping!

There were several little “driveways” off of the main road that would serve as great sites for one group, but you have to get there early. By the time it’s late afternoon, you’ll end up having to go with the main large area, which is basically just a couple minutes after the turn for Hole in the…

The Absolute Best

By far, this has got to be the absolute best for BLM camping. Many, many campsites. You are secluded and you are very far apart from others. The scenery is great and awesome views of the sunset. This is a definate go to.

About This Campground

This 62 mile (100 km) drive (one way) runs from Escalante, Utah to the Hole-in-the-Rock on the western shore of Lake Powell following the general route of of the original Hole-in-the-Rock Expedition and is great for Grand Staircase Escalante Camping. Most of the road is in Grand Staircase-Ecalante National Monument, however the last approximately 5 miles are within the boundaries of Glen Canyon NRA. Most of the road on BLM land is passable to high-clearance, two-wheel drive vehicles in dry weather. The last few miles within Glen Canyon are best travelled by foot, bicycle, or four-wheel drive vehicle. There are numerous side-roads that leave this main road. Nearly all of these are only recommended for four-wheel drive.

Persons travelling this road should carry plenty of water (at least one gallon--4 liters--per person per day) and be equipped to get themselves out of any difficulty they might encounter. This road is not routinely patrolled by any agency. Temperatures can range over 100° F (38°C) in summer to near 0° F (-17°C) in winter. Sudden heavy rains, especially in summer months may make this road impassable. If you are caught near the end of the road during a heavy storm, you may not be able to make it back to the paved highway, even with a four-wheel drive.
