We were here for a long weekend & it was unreal. There’s a TON of space and it was great for mountain biking. Highly recommend.
We did bonfires & outdoor stoves and had no issue with “dry heat”. There were tons of baby cactus everywhere, which made it all feel extra desert-y.
We stayed at the BLM outside of Zion National Park. It was absolutely STUNNING. There were signs that made finding this spot super simple. We stayed Saturday night of Labor Day weekend and found that we had MILES of BLM land to ourselves until well after dark. The ground was a mix of gravel/dirt and was totally find for sleeping on. Where we setup camp, there was someone's old campfire spot, which made things easier.
Very short walk to the beach (which is mostly private). The site was heavily wooded and ~1 mile hike in from where you park. The walk itself to the campsite was very level and smooth. Would 10/10 recommend
