Incredible location! When we arrived, there were 3 other people already there. There is plenty of room for lots of people. Also if you feel up to it - cross the River for an absolutely hidden and amazing spot.
This spot was great! If you have 4wd you can probably get to the spot down by the river that was just perfect to swim in during a hot day. The upper road can be done with 2wd and there is a flat spot for 3-4 groups. Easy to find and not busy.
Amazing spot to camp for the night. Got there around 7pm and only one other person there. Was on the lower section near the road, despite being closer to the road only heard cars twice during the night.
Don’t forget your bug spray!
Free camping just outside Capitol reef national park. Maybe 5 min drive to the nearest restrooms. Another 5 min driving I to the park and you can find orchards that are free to pick and eat and amazing pies/cinnamon buns at Giffords House! (Go at 8ish. That’s when they get their pie delivery). To find the site, follow the directions listed on the Dyrt and be ready for a quick left or a quick right depending on what direction you’re coming from (use directions to show if it will be on your right or left). We got an amazing spot right next to the river with a great swimming hole. Zero light pollution so the stars were incredible. Drive to the very back of the lower dirt road to get to this spot.
We couldn’t make it down to the portion by the river because of the steep drive and our hitch hauler, but we stayed in the upper portion and it was great! 3 of the lower sites were occupied but we had the upper to ourselves. Very few cars drove by and we could still hear the water and fall asleep star gazing at the amazing sky! Definitely recommend!
Love this sight! The place was empty at 10:00am maybe three people at 6 pm. Hard to spot, but worth the stay. 0.0 phone service. Will be here again
Small spot, but so beautiful next to the river. Not many fire rings so get there early.
With camping on upper and lower portion, we camped on upper portion over looking the stream. Beautiful spot just outside the park!
Great flat spot at the river bend hidden from view with a fire pit and the river a stone’s throw away. Cool down and camp out in style.
