“Getting back to nature...”
If you Google pictures of Utah 95 you'll see that this place was once under water. Apparently Lake Powell is down 20' or so, however I'm speaking anecdotally so don't tell my buddies over at Wikipedia.
The three star rating is absolutely relative to the free camping that is abundant in both directions, however this camping area as well as nearby Hite and Farley all cost money to camp at. I didn't see a sign but I didn't look all that well either, however both a lovely, rambunctious woman sipping Coors while seated in a camping chair positioned in the back of her pickup told me this and that's what the Glen Canyon website says as well.
Makes sense since there are vault toilets. However, all three of these sites are kind of weird, and appear to have been created for when the lake was much higher. Getting back to that, while I adore Utah 95 like your cat thinks you adore dead birds left on your front porch, this little slice, right now, while the water is low, is proof that those crazy naked scientists who used to live in Glen Canyon before it became Lake Powell at the hands of the evil alien invaders known as man came along and watered it all down. Or is it up? Anyway, it's proof that they were right.
Seeing this area growing back, desperate little cottonwoods clinging to get a start before the lake rises again come some future where we all figure out how to get our water back, makes me long to see Glen Canyon in his former glory.
In three trips passing through here I have never seen a soul at Hite and Farley, but people pack into this particular spot by the small town's worth it seems.
PS. A pack of three feral horses and their considerably more bashful mule pal hang out east / south of here on Utah 95. Drive slowly, if the horses don't cause an accident then the folks stopped alongside the road looking to take their picture (and they do pose, all except that mule, so it's kinda their fault...) very well may.
