Stunning scenery, excellent stay

What a fantastic experience. The road is paved except the last mile. The climb is 13% grade for about 8 miles so be prepared, but it is all paved. Two camps were closed so the only one open was busy, but quiet. At about 8300 feet altitude it does get cold. Much of the Dixie National Forest is burned but the immediate area has ample trees of many colors. This is remote so no amenities at all. We have a small rv and made the .trip no problem. No cell reception until you are in the town of Parowan

Great little spots

The road from the main highway is paved for most the way. Very beautiful. I’m not sure if we stayed in this spot directly, but we found a camp along side the road and it was great. The stream ran through our camp and the trees were situated perfectly for parking the van. Forest fires have burnt most of the trees though and the wind was relentless. I still enjoyed my experience.

Quiet

Easy to get to. Nobody there. Beautiful area. Lots of spots to park and they’re clearly marked. Stone fire pits at sites. Beautiful stream runs thru a few sites! Very peaceful.

Quiet, not crowded and relaxing.

The drive into the campground was beautiful with trees starting to turn fall colors with the backdrop of vermillion rock formations and bright blue sky. The road turns to dirt and the campgrounds (see photo of sign at entrance) are about a half mile on a fairly smooth dirt road. We have 26 foot class C and it did fine. The area burned in 2017 so views at campgrounds are of burned areas trying to regrow with grazing cattle and deer. Nice quiet place with occasional vehicles on dirt road which continues on. The near by creek keeps the vehicle noise to minimum and is a nice place to sit and relax. There are hiking trails along the road on the drive in. Good are for hiking, biking, camping, and OHV use.
