The potholes area is for tents or small rigs only but there are several great locations within a mile past the potholes. Clean areas with firepits, amazing views, and a beautiful creek running a short walk away. Worth the drive. You need to go past the Escalante Ranch to get to this area but the perseverance will pay off. The road is gravel but decent and we had no problem getting out 31’ 5th wheel there and back. There are no lights for miles and the night sky is amazing! To get cell coverage you will need to head back into the ranch a few miles

“Disappointed- only a small area for tent sites”

Double toilet -vault
No campfires allowed
No collecting or burning wood there
2 or 3 Very nice covered picnic tables with charcoal grills
Can view the river but saw no easy access to it
Surrounded by private land
Not worth the hour trip down the gravel road to get to such a small area that is designated camping- but no vehicles allows in the camping area

We tent camp but we like having our vehicle in camp
