boondocking spots in Utah? specific areas. in 24’ class B rental
We currently own (and love) our travel trailer, but are considering
changing to a 2019 24’ Sprinter gas 170 EB 4x4 with custom built interior by an ‘upfitter’
We are soon planning on renting a similar 24’ class B and doing a 6 day road trip from Los Angeles this early summer, to try 24’ van glamping out.
I have a very good idea of what Id like to do with the family, (i have been before) so the question isn’t what to see (I have a good amount planned for the 6 days - hitting my favorite spots)
but rather - what boondocking spots very near our desired overnight spots exist?
I’d welcome quiet, scenic spots that are pretty much guaranteed a spot for us. Free is a bonus. Dont mind paying if need be.
Want to not be cheek to jowl next to other sun blockers.
Dont want WallyWorld free. Want dirt road, away from folks camping. :-)
Day 1 - leave Los Angeles, drive about 7 hours to Zion National Park area. Boondock in Zion National Park area.
Day 2 - AM: quick look at Zion National Park, then drive towards Moab area.
Boondock maybe 1/2 way to Moab.
Fishlake National Forest?
What is more scenic up to there - the 15 north, (about 20 minutes faster than the 89) or the 89 north?
Day 3 - explore Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park and area. Boondock nearby.
Day 4 - explore Arches National Park, Canyonlands National Park and area. Boondock nearby.
Day 5 - leave Arches + Canyonlands, drive to Monument Valley area.
Boondock near Monument Valley.
Day 6 - early AM explore Monument Valley, and drive about 3/4 (about 7 hours) towards LA.
Boondock about 3 hours out of LA.
Maybe Mojave National Preserve near Baker? can one boondock near there? Is it pretty?
Day 7 arrive home to LA about lunch time. :-)
thanks for any and all boondock location tips!!
