Immersed in the Vastness of Hole in the Rock

You must be a member or a Patreon subscriber to see location.


Situated at the end of Hole in the Rock Road, over 50 miles from pavement, this primitive site offers a great opportunity for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Tucked away in a grove of junipers, flanked by rock formations, this campsite features a fire ring, decent protection from the elements, and offers an exceptional view of the sky for Starlink.

However, it's important to note that this location is extremely remote and far off the beaten path, with no cell service. Visitors should bring enough food, water, and shelter, and exercise caution when driving along the rough and bumpy road. While a stock vehicle might be able to make it with a good amount of care, high-clearance four-wheel drive vehicles are strongly recommended. Best season is fall. Avoid in hot weather, and avoid when muddy.

Despite the long and arduous drive, the scenic beauty of this landscape makes it worth the journey. Rolling mounds of red rock and sandstone offer ample hiking, canyoneering, and mountain biking opportunities. Only a short drive from Hole in the Rock, a cliffside perch that overlooks Lake Powell. Remember to leave no trace and take a satellite communicator in case of emergencies. With proper preparation and precautions, this secluded spot can offer a truly unforgettable backcountry experience.

Always tread lightly, leave no trace, respect the wishes of landowners, and leave campsites cleaner than you found them. Be the very best steward of our public spaces that you can possibly be so that they remain public.
