“Picturesque, quirky sites amongst the red rocks just outside Needles.”
Reviewed Oct 22, 2016
10 sites surround a formation of squat, red rock mushrooms in the BLM-managed Indian Creek Recreation Area that shares the boundary with Canyonlands National Park Needles District. The turnoff is well-marked, just 3 miles before the NP boundary on Hwy 211. Turn east on Lockhart Basin Road, on wide, well-graded gravel road.
There's good elbow room between sites and it reminded us of a miniature City of Rocks (New Mexico). Great place for kids to safely scramble among the rocks. Stunning sunrises and sunsets, with monuments, needle formations and iconic silhouettes in the distance.
However, sites are not very level, and consist of wind-blow sand. Not suitable for larger rigs (over 30 feet). Fire ring and picnic tables. Great for tent campers, shorter vehicles like our 22' van, or truck/camper combos.
There are two restrooms, one is a double cast vault toilet on the west side by the Lockhart Road entrance (200 steps from our site #7) and the other an open-air number on the east side. It can be windy in the afternoons.
No reception whatsoever. Just drive less than 15 minutes to the Canyonlands Visitor Center where the WiFi is free.
On the mid-October weekend in 2016, there was a lot of competition for sites since Canyonlands’ Squaw Flats campground filled by 9 am each weekend day. However, there are lots of boondocking sites along Lockhart Road both before and after Hamburger Rocks.
