Camp under the cottonwoods riverside - Will take you back in time!

You will find this lovely campground just outside of the town of Bluff, UT. Sand Island Campground is located on the north bank of the San Juan River about 3 miles west of Bluff, Utah, on the south side of Highway 191. The hotels in town fill up fast - but this hidden spot is where you want to be if you love being off on your own! At $15 per campsite per night (2 car maximum) price is right and they offer 25 campsites. Keep in mind that the campsites are "first come, first served" and self-register. There are some amenities like drinking water, Picnic tables,Fire grates, &Pit toilets. There is a boat launch that did get regular traffic. What I loved best was the petroglyphs! There are 2 full walls of them and lots to explore down a trail that runs along the river. The sites are fairly small but ours was private and the camping area was near empty when we were there in Sept. You do have to treat yourself to dinner at the Cottonwood Steakhouse while you are there and take time the visit the nearby Bluff Fort. Their home-made rootbeer is the best I have ever had!
