Several of these places are situated at high altitudes, some even exceeding 6,000 feet, and can be seen from a distance.
Cedar City Petroglyphs Dispersed Camping
You can study history by looking at petroglyphs and markings left by pioneers and explorers. Even ancient dinosaur tracks can be seen in the surrounding desert terrain. It is also possible to see sheep grazing. Located just off Interstate 15 in southwestern Utah, this area is just north of Cedar City. You can choose from numerous wide-open sites along numerous dirt roads.
Camping in Green River off the Wild Horse Road
This is the perfect place to unplug from your phone since there is no cell service here. It is also possible to explore stunning slot canyons here, or simply sit still and enjoy a beautiful sunset. Goblin Valley is also nearby and is certainly worth a visit if you aren’t interested in Wild Horse Canyon. There are several geological features near these sites in east-central Utah, including the San Rafael Swell.
Crescent Junction BLM 144 Dispersed Camping
Almost on your doorstep is Arches National Park, which offers a lot of room for roaming. The good thing about boondocking is that there are rarely any people around. Watch out for cows and cactus thorns while scouting for the perfect spot. Turn your head and you’ll see sunrises and sunsets. Another advantage of this site is its proximity to Interstate 70, which also makes it very convenient.
Dispersed camping along the Zion Scenic Byway
You can spread out in this large space and enjoy some privacy. There are only 15 minutes between your hotel and the east entrance to Zion National Park. It is a rough, rutty road with some sections missing pavement. Depending on the type of rig you have, you may need your tow vehicle to scout the area. A big rock fire pit is nearby if the weather is not too hot.
