So. Utah/No. AZ fall camping ideas needed
Until recently, I have usually only had 2-3 days available for camping trips and have stuck fairly close to Southern California as a result. Now I find myself with 5 days and a desire to broaden my horizons a bit. My thought was to explore a bit of either Southern Utah or Northern Arizona. The plan is to spend day 1 driving as far as possible on pavement and overnighting in a developed campground. Day two would be some easy to moderate off-roading ending up in an isolated spot where we can camp for two nights. Day four is driving back as far as Las Vegas and celebrating our wedding anniversary there, then driving back to L.A. on day 5.
The dates in question are 10/25 - 10/29. It seems like many campgrounds in the North Rim area are closed up by then. Areas like Red Cliffs NCA or Dixie National Forest look more promising. Last year we got caught in the rain and did some sheet metal damage on some slippery dirt roads, so I am a little wary about being out on muddy roads again.
