Elevation 3000 feet. 5 tent sites. Northern most trailhead into Paria Canyon- Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness. ACTIVITIES Camping Hiking Horseback Riding Picnicking
Lots of canyoneers here, sites were overflowing with big groups. No shade at all, but most people spend their day in the canyon. Picnic tables be and pit toilets are the only amenities. It is a beautiful place, but a little crowded for me. I found a lovely spot back to the north on the banks of the Paria. Great night sky view. Vermillion Cliffs and GSENM right there as well as Lake Powell. Tons to do in this area!
You drive about 2 miles down a dirt road to get to this wilderness campground. The only facilities are pit toilets. But don't let that keep you away. The location is right on the Paria River and it's so beautiful and peaceful here. And at $5 a night, you can't beat it!
You can hike along the river or just hang out and enjoy the views. We were here in April and the no-see-ems were out so bring bug spray!
It's probably best suited for tent camping but we did see one small trailer when we were here.
This spot is amazing if you like primitive camping! There are two pit toilets. Most campsites had their own picnic table and either a designated fire ring or grill for cooking. No water at this location, so bring your own. Also conveniently located at the trail head.
Would definitely camp there again if in the area.
