“Beautiful and isolated BLM”

An isolated spot within the Canyonlands Recreation area managed by BLM. About 45 minutes from Moab, an hour from Arches NP, and an hour from Canyonlands NP. Truly incredible. We were the only people camping during the whole week, though there were others at the nearby established Windwhistle Campground. After turning off the paved road, you turn onto a dirt two track and almost immediately jog again to the right, and then you have arrived at the open sandstone area available for camping! This was one of the most incredible spots we’ve ever stayed at. The sandstone is a little tough to drive over, but worth it. We have a 17’ fiberglass camper and tow it with a 4-wheel drive vehicle. No problem finding a level spot! Highly recommend.

Black lives matter!

“Big Skies and Quiet Nights”

Overall Rating

This is a nice low-impact site. It’s a rock outcrop and there are two levels. Its possible to put about three rigs on the bottom, but to be honest it’s not very level and there are more than a few potholes to contend with. The top is the best spot but only fits one vehicle.
The views of the La Sal Mountains are spectacular, and the Abajo Mountains are visible to the South.
The site is not far from Needles Overlook Road and you can hear a bit of road noise, but not enough to bother. Granted, I’m here in October and it could be more bothersome during the summer.
There are three bars of Verizon 3-4G.
If you plan to have fires, please bring a fire pan to protect the rock from burn scars.
