“Fantastic”

Reviewed May 28, 2018

Overall Rating

This campsite is easily accessible from highway 89 and you only have to drive around a minute or so on a gravel road. I camped here the Sunday before Memorial Day and it was not busy at all.

“FAST Internet, Great Views”

Reviewed Mar 21, 2018

Overall Rating

I don't have much to add from what the other reviewers stated other than that the ATT speeds were phenomenal...50mbps down 20 up! And that's unboosted and without an external antenna. Cell signal isn't great in this area of Utah in general, so to find a boonedocking spot with such great connectivity (we work from the road) was a treat.... more

“Surprisingly nice boondocking just off of US-89”

Reviewed Jul 20, 2017

Overall Rating

So the quality of camping here is really pretty good for being essentially a gravel pit and remnants from the old US-89. We stayed for one day when the good site was taken, so we ended up camping by the gravel pit... which is still far more scenic than 99% of RV Parks out there ;-) We had usable Verizon 4G, total privacy, limited roa... more

“Good Location for Tough Choices”

Reviewed Apr 28, 2015

Overall Rating

Located about 2 miles southeast of Mt. Carmel Junction, or about 14 miles north of Kanab, Utah, and less than ¼ mile from Highway 89, is a good area (37.2043,-112.6761) on BLM land. There are several potential spots in the immediate area, almost all of which are out of sight (but not sound) of Highway 89. A couple of the spots have lit... more
