Utah Campgrounds

Looking to spend a week on the open roads of Southern Utah? Southern Utah is unique in that much of it seems as raw, unspoiled and unexplored as it did hundreds of years ago. It’s easy to put yourself in the shoes of the area’s first inhabitants and imagine their excitement and awe at the same views that stretch before you.

From the start, you’ll be transported to a new world with massive expanses of Technicolor cliffs, brilliant-hued hoodoos and wide-open spaces around Bryce Canyon National Park. After dark, you’ll be treated to a stellar night sky — the Milky Way streaking across it so brightly that it seems you could walk the stars like a trail.

You can meander the scenic Potash Road with its dinosaur tracks and several panels of petroglyphs. Or hike to Cave Springs Cowboy Camp, still blackened from the fires of cowboys keeping warm.

Heading west, you can live like the pioneers who settled this once-barren area at Bluff Fort. Or imagine what life was like farming in desert country at the well-preserved Gifford Homestead.

ZION NATIONAL PARK

Summit to impossibly high — even heavenly — perches, where you’ll get a vertiginous view into the heart of Zion Canyon National Park. Then, from the depths of a gorge, gape upwards at the sheer scale of the narrow walls that surround you as you wade through the river that carved them.
