“Top 5 Ever!”

Reviewed Apr 22, 2017

Overall Rating

Absolutely LOVED it here! After the BLM sign you have a few entrances, all on the south side of the road. The first and most noticeable is a very rutted rough entrance, the second is basically a set of tire tracks down to a corral and then goes past the corral and the third is a paved, single lane road. We took this last one, ... more

“Okay and a decent location but access was rough”

Reviewed May 05, 2016

Overall Rating

The Virgin Dam area is a large area and there is access to it by at least two roads, so it is best to read all reviews. We were looking for a spot with easy access to the highway as we had some service issues to resolve, and so we drove up just past a BLM sign coming in from Hurricane. We arrived a bit late and the road we picked w... more

“Great boondocking near Zion”

Reviewed Apr 23, 2016

Overall Rating

I second Van-Tramp's review! My only caveat is that it gets very slick out here in the rain. It rained on us and getting in/out was pretty difficult. Great spot!

“Top of the list for desert boondocking locations”

Reviewed Apr 22, 2016

Overall Rating

Definitely one of, if not THE, best desert boondocking. 360 degree views of supreme desert views with the Virgin River keeping your footing honest. Sparrows and Hawks fly by the window each morning and evening, and the geese that wade in the river below add their honks to the ambiance. It is just a bonus that you are within a short dri... more

“One of the best free options close to Zion”

Reviewed Apr 20, 2016

Overall Rating

The road to the good sites is pretty awful, but once you get out there its great. You have views of the Virgin river below and can see Zion Canyon in the distance. Maybe 20 minutes to get in the park through Springdale. Just a few minutes to get down the road to La Verkin and Hurricane. I think the road and site quality is better off o... more

“good”

Reviewed Oct 01, 2015

Overall Rating

Stayed 3 nights in mid-February 2015 and had the whole area to ourselves. We camped in the first big pull-out that runs right up to the cliff edge. Not much there besides a fire ring and some shotgun shells. Nearly invisible from Highway 9 and far enough away to escape any traffic noise. Great views to the west into the Virgin River... more
