Zion/ Bryce

For Zion and Bryce try the National forest campgrounds around Navajo lake. Not the Navajo lake in New Mexico/Colorado, but the one in Utah, We stayed in the NF on our trip to Utah. These campgrounds are almost equal distance from Zion and Bryce with the Cedar breaks National monument as a side trip. Good Luck!

Thanks for the tip. Sounds like a good location for the western utah parks.

Really enjoyed all of these posts and ideas. We have not been there in so long hard to suggest. We really loved Logan River Canyon. We tent camped so I cannot offer particulars. Also loved Zion and Bryce along with Arches ( summer is really challenging here to hike Very hot and stay hydrated...big time!). Enjoy your travels! Well return someday back to beautiful Utah!

Google Map Ferron to Mayfield over the mountain... Camp on the top 11,000 feet.. Build a fire, take lots of water and fuel, You think you're going to die but you'll get the hang of it very fast. Camp any place 150 feet off the road. Forest camp sites. Cold at nite. Stay on forest service roads and have the maps, GPS and go slow. You'll wonder why you are the only one out there enjoying this! The Ranger will see you and help if needed. Four wheel is best but not needed. Someone from Wisconsin will have the proper jackets for July up there. See the Great Western Trail which goes from Mexico to Canada. Go South to Thousand Lakes RV Park in Torrey Utah. Don't travel at nite! Just park and sleep. Don't go there before July for the snow is blocking the road.

Finally the camper showed up. They admitted they wanted the site for the holiday weekend, so to get it, they reserved it for the week before and through the holiday.

While they did pay for the site, it was sad to see other campers not being able to use the site while it remained vacant so this person could lock in the holiday....

This particular campground was built by the local town. I am sure part of the "economic return" on this campground is campers going to local restaurants/bars/stores/whatever, all within easy walking distance of the campground. An empty site obviously has no benefit for town businesses.
In Colorado state parks you have to occupy the site by the second day or you lose it.

Just remember at that altitude people can get very sick from altitude sickness. It can be extremely dangerous so if you aren't used to high altitudes stay at different elevations slowly.
