Boondocking location near Zion

Cost: FREE- BLM property

Reservation required: No

Length if stay: 14 days

Directions: Head north on US-89 from Kanab, Utah. Right before you turn left on US-9 to head west towards the east entrance into Zion, you will cross over Virgin Creek. Right after you cross over the creek, the next dirt road on the left is where you will turn left then keep heading left. You will come to MANY pull offs as you wonder down the dirt road. We only went about a 1/2 mile or so before we found the campsite we loved right along the creek! The road continues on much further.

*This dirt road is about 1/4 mile before the Golden Hills restaurant in Orderville, UT if coming from Kanab, UT.

Hookups: none

Amenities: none

Recreation opportunitues: wading in the beautiful flowing creek, ATVS and mountain climbing!

This is the best location we have stayed at thus far! Perfect for families! We set up chairs next to the creek and relaxed while watching the kids play all day. I even took a picture from way up on the road above to show our awesome FREE campsite! A piece of Heaven on earth. 🙂
