“Quiet and secluded spot that's very close to Bryce Canyon National Park”

Reviewed Jun 04, 2016

Overall Rating

Whiteman Bench is a great place to boondock while you visit Bryce Canyon National Park and Red Canyon. It’s about 13 miles to the entrance of Bryce Canyon and less than that to Red Canyon. It’s a secluded, quiet spot in the woods and you will probably see pronghorns roaming around the area.

The main forest service road (FS 87) to Whiteman Bench (FS 88) is gravel but in really good condition. There’s a trash and recycle dumpster at the entrance of FS 87. FS 88 is on the bumpy side with a handful of potholes. There’s a deep ditch at the entrance of FS 88, which may be a problem for travel trailers and class As – we tow a 25 ft. long 5th wheel and made it but we had to take it really slowly and carefully.

We wouldn’t recommend any rigs longer and definitely not taller (we’re 12 ft.) than us to trying to drive into Whiteman Bench. While there are 6 camping spots, they are not very large and most of them will require some maneuvering to get in or out of them. Keep in mind when staying here during the shoulder months that the elevation is almost at 8,000 ft. So freezing nights and snow won’t be impossible.

Bryce Canyon National Park has water and dumping, along with a more extensive recycling center than what’s at FS 87. It’s probably a good idea to stock up on groceries before heading here, there’s not much in town.

Cell signal jumped throughout the day between 1 - 2 bars LTE.

Blow Your Mind Hiking & Riding Around Bryce Canyon

Bryce Canyon National Park doesn't seem to get as much love as Zion National Park, even though they are about 78 miles from one another. It's understandable - not only is Zion bigger in acreage, but it...
