“Amazing view with a unique experience”

Reviewed Jul 28, 2019

Overall Rating

BLM land for free camping on the rim of Badger Canyon over looking the Colorado River. We stayed for 2 nights, arrived late afternoon and had an amazing experience viewing condors flying over the area. We were the only campers there for the stay. The road off Hwy 89A has a gate that remains closed at all times and there was one sand... more

“Pretty, access is tight, got stuck once, unwanted. ”

Reviewed May 24, 2019

Overall Rating

Very pretty view once you make it to Badger Point. Unfortunately, that is a bit difficult. The turn from 89A is quite tight, and I ended up scraping my trailer up pretty badly on the gate. The sand is deep and loose during the summer, and I had to dig myself out once. This spot is becoming quite crowded, and the locals weren’t shy ... more

“Easy camping with fantastic views”

Reviewed Apr 30, 2019

Overall Rating

rustic camping along a dirt road with views of both the Kaibab Plateau and the Vermillion Cliffs...basically the best views anywhere! Close to Marble Canyon, Navajo Bridge, the Colorado River and Lee's Ferry. Two or three close restaurants too! let's just say it's very rustic, and the road can be rough. But if you like free camping... more

“Great free camping, accessible by 2wd”

Reviewed Nov 10, 2018

Overall Rating

Really great free camping in an area that seems to be pretty limited in choices. I was a little unsure about access given previous reviews but found the road to be fine with 2wd. Our small trailer (with decent clearance) made it back there just fine. The worst of the road conditions are the first half mile and get better after that. Su... more

“Breathtaking ”

Reviewed Sep 23, 2018

Overall Rating

We decided to last minute take a family camping trip. We decided to come here as we had searched and found everyone to enjoy this spot. It looked really beautiful but sounded like it may be difficult to get back to camping spots with out 4x4/AWD/4wd.. Without camper I’d say most 2wd vehicles are capable to get back there but the hi... more

“We got a 35’ trailer in. Extremely difficult. Worth it.”

Reviewed May 24, 2018

Overall Rating

We read all the warnings and decided to try anyways. It was an incredibly tight turn getting through the gate, but we were able to make it with much expert maneuvering. Pro tips: open the gate outward to the road to give you extra turning space. Like others have said, approach from the south. Road is a bit washed out in 2 places, ... more

“The best place I found on my trip”

Reviewed May 14, 2018

Overall Rating

This place was absolutely phenomenal, was there during a near full moon and the whole place was glowing at night, plenty of rocks that would blow your mind, spent hours digging around for fossils and geodes. The ONLY down fall was the group of “painters” that invaded my camp site and privacy at 6:30 in the morning, I’m talking walking ... more

“Great Views!”

Reviewed May 02, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here one night at the end of April and had it to ourselves. The only other person we saw was a researcher for the California Condors in the area who was very nice and taught me a lot about the birds. The access is a little tough and it would be very tough with any large vehicle or trailer, but we made it just fine in our ... more

“‘Warning’ - Really not suited for medium/large trailers – better for smaller off-road-capable vehicles.”

Reviewed Sep 13, 2017

Overall Rating

I thought we’d reviewed this place before, but it seems to have gone missing. So to recap, and repeating what others have said: 1) You need to look out for the exact (unmarked gate) co-ordinates, easily missed (36.78807, -111.6848). 2) It really is wise to try to find somewhere else nearby to park first (not easy, no shoulders on the... more

“Better than expected:”

Reviewed Sep 06, 2017

Overall Rating

We pulled in around 11:30pm. The 2 mile drive on the dirt road from the 89 was a little bit sketchy. Trailers and low sitting cars might have difficulty but it is definitely doable especially with a truck or van. Our van does not have four wheel drive and we made it just fine. Beautiful spot though! Beautiful views of the Colorado Rive... more
