This was one of our favorite camping spots that my partner and I found during a 3 week road trip. Really gorgeous area and a lot of open spots if you keep driving. The dirt road wasn’t too bad, we have a civic and it made it out okay. Everyone is pretty spread out so you’ll get some privacy.
Great camping spots right on the water. No services and the views and camp sites were all great and quite large.
This is a once a year MUST!!!! Free, dispersed camping in the beautiful Flaming Gorge! The drive in is beautiful, the camping is beautiful…don’t miss it. No services, but just a dirt road to get there. Lots of RVs were also using this area! Beach camping, swimming, amazing sunsets…it has it all. We were there in July on a Thursday, many spots were open. Take time to drive around and go down the little side “roads”, that’s how we found our little gem of a site!
