“Fantastic sight and views”

Overall Rating

As the previous reviewer indicated this is a great spot on BLM land if you don't mind afternoon and evening winds. Be aware that you are 30 miles from the end of the road where Harpers Corner Trail is and about 20 miles outside the actual park so will need another vehicle to explore the park. The road down to Echo Campground is steep and prohibits RV's, trailers and passenger cars but if you have a high clearance vehicle is well worth the drive to the river.

We are relatively new to boondocking but loved this spot. We drive a 28 foot RV and tow a jeep. Since I work remotely the bonus was cell service.

This is a Free site on BLM land at the border of Colorado and Utah. Site is situated at the crossing of Harper's Corner road and the Blue Mountain Road (County Rd 16s), on your left as you drive towards Harper's Corner, pass a cattle grid and you will see a large area to the right of the road with 300º views of the rolling hills. Even with a large rig (we had an old 30ft Class C RV) the site is easily accessible over a very short dirt road and there are a couple of fire rings made of stones by previous campers.
Surrounded by sagebrush and in total silence, you will feel immersed in nature and completely isolated while completely safe. The views stretches all the way to the Quarry of Dinosaur National Monument and over Dinosaur city itself. Perfect for stargazing and the constant wind means fresh nights and beautiful fires (tip: you can even use dry cow manure and old sagebrush vines as fuel!)
It's a perfect site to walk the magnificent Harper's Corner trail early the next morning before it gets too hot in July and August, where views of the Green River, its canyon and the Steamboat Rock will take your breath away.
Also possible is to drive down the Blue Mountain Road for about half a mile and there are a few sites on the left too (just in the highly unlikely case this site would be taken already)
