“Not busy. Great views. ”

We parked at the first large parking area where the historical info signs are. Was a weekday evening and so not much traffic. There are about 10 screech owls above that spot on the rock wall. They either didn’t like us or do their screech thing at night. Not sure. Must google. We tried to pretend it was locusts like we are used to hear... more

We had been driving all day from Moab Utah and needed a place to sleep. The spot indicated on here was full with 3 others sets of people. So we drove back to the pull out across from the river that we passed on the way in. It was a gravel pull out. The rock wall behind us was beautiful.

Great location. Quiet, easy access. I can't imagine anyone would have trouble maneuvering into this. We have only 25' but it was easy. No reception with t-mobile.

This was a super great stop for overnight. It's only 10 minutes from the highway, on the river, quiet, paved road in, and lots of little green bugs but they didn't bite! We had one bar on Verizon 3G with booster and only in one spot of the RV. We have a 35' class A with toad. As you pull down the BLM road there is a site on the left a... more

In 1841 the California Trail followed the riverbank through the canyon. Years later, in 1868, train tracks were laid. Eventually tunnels were blasted out for the trains and the rail bed became US 40.
