“Washboard Road ”

I stopped in at the visitor center and they directed me to Early Weed on Hole in the Rock road. 24 miles in of terrible washboard road!!! Granted, I could have stayed at the entry to Hole in the Rock right at Hwy 12 (and had cell service), but I was wanting to visit Peekaboo and Spooky slot canyons. I would NOT recommend this roa... more

“Quiet”

Reviewed Oct 03, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed here in early October, and luckily, it has been dry, or it might have been hard to get very far into this camp area. There's a main camping area, but we accidentally pulled into the first driveway, which had a small berm, and headed down the straight dirt road, almost to the end, where there is a locked gate! Glad we did... more

“Great Boondocking Along the Incredibly Scenic UT-12”

Reviewed Jul 20, 2017

Overall Rating

We camped here for a week back in May and had a really nice time. It was pretty busy here but the area is just a big open meadow with some roads criss-crossing it. We pulled in on a Sunday and it was crowded but we found a nice place in the middle to tuck between two large junipers and find some 'privacy in plain site'. Then on Mond... more

“A variety of boondocking sites just inside Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, free camping permit required.”

Reviewed May 31, 2017

Overall Rating

Hole in the Rock Road is a (somewhat) maintained natural surface road that extends for 55 miles into the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. Shortly after passing the sign for the national monument there are a couple of dirt side roads with an array of boondocking sites. There are several places that will accommodate rigs of ... more

This camping site is a large meadow just after the turn off onto Hole in the Rock Rd. from Hwy. 12. Easy access for all types of vehicles and all sizes. Great starting point for any adventure in Escalante area. Peaceful quiet meadow area. Dirt road continues farther on past meadow, and it is easy to find a quiet spot. This BLM ar... more

“Best location for boondocking in Escalante”

Reviewed May 06, 2017

Overall Rating

Hole in the rock road is where most adventures jump off from in Grand-Staircase, so this is a great place to base out of. The campsites are 2 minutes from the main highway so you do not have to take your rig down miles of dirt road, and Escalante is only 10 minutes away. There are an infinite number of campsites as it's mainly a big... more
