About

Bureau of Land Management

Welcome to Toquerville Falls Primitive in Utah! This spot is a real treat for those who love a bit of adventure mixed with stunning natural beauty. Nestled near the falls, this camping area offers a raw and rugged experience that's perfect for those looking to get off the grid.

First things first, getting here is no walk in the park. You absolutely need a 4WD vehicle with high clearance to tackle the rocky, rough road leading to the site. If you're driving anything less, you might want to reconsider or be prepared for a long hike. But trust me, the effort is worth it.

Once you arrive, you'll find yourself surrounded by breathtaking waterfalls that cascade into a serene pool. The sound of the water is incredibly peaceful, making it a great backdrop for a night under the stars. There are no designated campsites, so you can set up your tent wherever you find a good spot. Just remember to use the pre-made fire rings if you plan on having a campfire.

Don't expect any amenities here—there's no drinking water, toilets, or trash services. You'll need to bring everything you need, including plenty of water and a bathroom system. And please, pack out all your trash to keep this place beautiful for the next visitors.

For those who love a bit of solitude, weekdays are your best bet. Weekends can get a bit rowdy with folks coming in for day trips and parties. But if you can swing a midweek visit, you'll likely have the place mostly to yourself.

So, if you're up for a bit of a challenge and want to experience some of Utah's most stunning natural scenery, Toquerville Falls Primitive is calling your name. Just make sure you're prepared, and you'll have an unforgettable time.

You will need 4WD!!!!!

Didn’t stay here, but the road leading up to the site is insanely rocky. 4WD MINIMUM. Tried to get up it with a Subaru forester and we had to bail halfway through. Anything lifted will be better, too. Didn’t see anything about this road until we made it there so only go if you’ve got the car for it, or if you want to walk!!!

Dispersed camping

dispersed as can be there is absolutely no type of resources once you get down to the Falls so just Set up camp anywhere and enjoy the falls. A magical place for sure. You can find Premade fire rings and utilize those spots or make your own little fire pit you have plenty of rocks to choose from and literally enjoy the peace and serenity we have a jeep so it was no problem getting in or out.

Rough road is right!

This trail has 3 major obstacles. Rough most of the way, 2 big rock bumps and a rock bed that are unavoidable. Got it done in my stock 2020 Ford Ranger no scrapes. Defiantly NOT for Beginners.

Beautiful, worth the effort, but trashed

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW

-do not let dogs or small children drink the river water. Even for adults, you need to filter it. The river feeds out of Zion which is known to have algae spores that can be fatal when consumed. Bring plenty of water!

  • pack in a bathroom system!
  • MUST have a 4x4, high clearance vechicle. Do no attempt if not confident in this area!

I’m sure this place used to be amazing, but it’s obvious that it’s a party spot with no clean up efforts. Even the road in was littered with beer cans all 3 miles in.

Once at the falls and in the campsite areas, there is toilet paper, feces, and garbage everywhere. It’s a popular waterhole by day and party spot by night, so expect people to be bumping music, lighting fireworks, and parking in the river (which is also a crossing!) for photo ops. We camped on a weekend, and had people rolling in at 2am (which is insane, that road is not friendly after dark!) yelling and partying for an hour, then loudly driving back.

It’s a beautiful place so if you have the opportunity to go during the week, I’d recommend that. Remember to leave no trace and maybe even pack out extras!

You can Fall Asleep ;-)

This place was amazing! Small falls, with camping right next to it. It takes a 4x4 for get here...cars or vehicles with low clearance BE WARE! You won't make it. I did this in a 17 Jeep Grand Cherokee stock height and hit bottom a few times. The drive is about 3 miles to the falls and takes about 45 minutes. Truly worth it. Always pack out what you packed in PLEASE, and maybe even pack out a little more. Let's take care of these treasures!.

A guy and his dog Toquerville Falls Utah

Toquerville Falls Utah. BLM area. Free off grid camping. Cool place to see. Lots of off road, 4 wheeler/side by side, dirt bike, Hiking to do in the area. This is NOT a 2 wheel drive adventure to see a water fall. It’s strictly 4 wheel drive only. Hike it first to end don’t ruin your vehicle for this. Steep. Slick. 2 ft rock boulderings straight drop offs and roads cut towards them. If too slick see ya. Trust. Walk it. 4wd is ok. 3.5 miles takes 45min slow Mo style. So walking speed? Almost. Walk it no 2wd.

Rough roads but rewarding

Talk about nail biting, butt squeezing ride to this magical, majestic, wonderful waterfalls. We don’t have a 4x4 as you know.. but we push our Burban to the limits!!! Super dope place to camp, be prepared because you have no resources, pack in and make sure you pack out. Don’t forget to pull your truck on the waterfall and take a picture!! We came when it’s chilly so the water was ice cold, I do think summer would be amazing for sure!!!! It started to get super windy and dark clouds so we could not stay the night, I seen someone post about flash floods... LISTEN don’t take the chance because you will get your self stuck in flash floods, mud, and potential rocks falling... don’t even get your self into that situation. Pay attention to the weather and don’t risk it! Besides that super neat and happy we got to experience it.

Awesome spot.

The only way you can get to this spot is bu hiking or 4X4. No other vehicle can make it. If you do decide to hike, it would be at least an hour and a half hike. But when you finally get here you will see that it was worth it. Beautiful waterfalls that fall into a crater like pool. The water continues to flow down for miles. It is very peaceful at night especially hearing the water fall flow. You can sleep anywhere just be curious. Highly recommended.

Off grid camping and scenery too!

Roughly 10 mi out of Toquerville on Spring drive is The Falls. A really sweet place to stop, cool off, I saw some people swimming during the day, and just relax and take in the gorgeous canyon. Dotted with pinion pines this is a stark desert landscape that is freeing just to drive through, let alone set up and camp and drink in its essence. Road in varies in difficulty, if it is even hinting of rain I personally would find another place to go. Not just for the unpredictable road conditions, but flash flooding is a real danger. Watch the weather reports and take then into consideration when setting up camp. Ok, the fun stuff. Trailers would not be advised unless specifically made to handle the road in, so tent camping is the most prevalent, I have a rooftop tent, so it is perfect for this. Days are hot in late spring and summer, nights can get cold especially in the early spring. Be prepared for both. This is no potable water source, nor provisions to be had so go in with all you will need. Dark nights mean amazing stars an I mean amazing, bring some lounging chairs and a good wine and just lay back. Our site had a pre made rock ring and plenty of wood around to burn. It gets really dry, so be extra careful with the fire. Pack in pack out all garbage. Enjoy
