A previous reviewer of this "campground" (it's more like a dispersed area) was very negative about the access tracks. The reality is, when you get out here the tracks branch out widely... and some are better than others. Yes, there are tracks that were carved by a Jeep, and you'd be a fool to follow in a motorhome... but there are also some that are decent gravel, and fine for all but the largest rig. Just pay attention, and if you're unsure, scout a little ways ahead before committing your rig.

OK, moving beyond access. Stanton Creek is a sizable area above the shore of Lake Powell where you can basically pick your own ideal site. The views are great, the solitude (or lack of it) is largely up to you. I'd definitely come back here.

Caveats:

  • The access track may deteriorate after rain. Watch the forecast, and plan accordingly.
  • Because it's an open area, there's always the chance that a bunch of yahoos will come and set up right next to you. In December, we were the only ones there, but that's probably not always true. It's a risk you take with any dispersed camping area.
  • At 2018 lake levels, there were no "waterfront" sites that we immediately saw. But this will depend on the water level when you visit.

We went down as having read somewhere you could get next to lake Powell and very disappointed. Signposted at the top of the main road that the ferry crossing was closed but expected to spend several days next to the lake.
The dirt road down was not great from near the marina but OK. On arrival at the site there is a vault toilet and pay station some distance from the lake and only place for a C class or bigger. Not a nice spot. Just past it there is a track to the right down to the lake but very steep and looked sandy (4x4) and straight on was a deep washdown an dthen straight up, that we would not risk bottoming out on and getting stuck.
We went and looked then at the marina camp site and not impressed for money. Ended up going back up the road to Starr Springs to BLM and stopping overnight on the track to it about 1 mile where there was a large pull off area ( 37.819918,-110.63485) before the official site.

Stanton Creek Campground: Camping on the shore of Lake Powell | Two Happy Campers

We were happy with our previous campsite but the incoming storm was bringing its fair share of wind so we decided to go for a drive.  We quickly discovered we were less than an hour away from so...
