Easy to access, tons of spots especially past the cattle guard. Good cell reception and LTE with Verizon

Report Check-In

Hard to see from the road but has many spots. Was nice to see so many other people around, so if you want to be alone this might not be the place for you. Had 1 bar of 5g on T-Mobile which was very nice! Some what buggy but if the wind if moving it’s not too bad.

Report Check-In

Fantastic spot! We got here on a Sunday and there were a good number of open spots, though it does look like it could fill up over the weekend. The roads look freshly "sanitized", meaning lots of loose sand and rocks had been cleared to the side. Our site was clean of trash, as were the ones by us. Hopefully it stays that way! Had good Verizon signal the whole time. Fire rings everywhere but it was too windy for us to have a fire. With the roads freshly cleared a low clearance vehicle would have no problem.

This has to be the best BLM camping in Utah. Very close to Capitol reef and the town of Tori. Many roads to explore to find the best campsite. The views are amazing and it feels very safe. Lots of sites with fire pits. Great Internet.

We camped before the cattle guard, numerous spots along there. Later saw the sing at the cattle guard, seems like officially you are to be past that guard. Doesn’t seem to be enforced as many look like they’ve been there for q long time. Area does need to be cleaned up.

Report Check-In

Nice, quiet spot with plenty of spaces. Majority of spots are tucked away so you have privacy and don’t feel on top of others. There’s a lot of broken glass everywhere so be careful when walking or with your pets walking around. Had 2-3 bars of Verizon entire time

one of the best spots I have ever found to be honest. stayed here five years ago and was hoping to find the same spot and I did. I was excited. absolutely stunning scenery. 15 minutes from Capitol Reef visitor center. good for all types vans and RVs I'm sure. stars are amazing here

Great spot right outside of Torrey near Capitol Reef. Road in very well maintained, think you could get most rigs in here. Many pull offs and sites to pull into. Also an area closer to the Park on the left. Good Verizon LTE

Report Check-In

Beautiful free spot close to Capitol Reef NP. Tons of people on the left hand side of the road along the canyon, but we went off to the right in the trees and there was no one around. Between 1-2 bars of LTE on ATT.

Great site! Beautiful views. Decent cell

Great place easy access. Easy drive in our 21 foot Travato. Quiet, clean, several others camping here as well. 3 bars ATT, great views!!

Lots of great spots. Pretty much all have amazing views. This an active rock quarry road but since it’s the holiday weekend it’s quiet. Right off Hwy 24 with good AT&T service

Report Check-In

Changed to a more level spot this morning as we stayed on one more day for a day of R&R from NP touring. Between AT&T and Verizon, catching up on trip planning and posting. Beautiful weather so we're not baking in the sun. This location is very open with only low scrub; no trees. Abuts what looks like an abandoned shale quarry.

Report Check-In

Secured a spot among the crowd on an open area just outside of Torrey. AT&T and Verizon both come in. 53 download on AT&T, upload 3. Nice sunset view.

Report Check-In

Gorgeous scenery with tons of easy to access spots. Plenty of options for tents, overlanders, and small and large trailers.

Report Check-In

Arrived just before sundown, still enough light to scope out a spot that had a fire ring and lots of level ground. We have 2WD and the roads were totally fine. Gorgeous spot on the edge of a canyon! Not as secluded as some of our other spots, but we parked in a way that helped our space feel private. Construction further down the road after a cattle guard but we didn’t hear or see any action over there. Some folks came by for morning walks, but their parking spots were across or down the road from us.

Stayed here one night on my way from Bryce Canyon to Capitol Reef. Just off highway with easy access via well-groomed dirt road. Quiet and nice view. There was on other RV.

Report Check-In

Great scenic spot just outside Torrey. The access road was an easy grade for us in our Sequoia & 25' camper trailer. There are lots of level spots, just through the cattle gate, we didn't even need leveling blocks! quick access to gas station, a few restaurants and a short ride into CRNP. there were a few other vans in the area without being crowded. would definitely stay again.

Report Check-In

Lots of space. Parts are construction site. Windy. Not much shade. Lots of red sand especially if you pick a bad spot. Come when it’s daylight and you’ll have better luck. Free. Hopefully no kids or generators will end up nearby.

Report Check-In

Many spots to camp. There were many other people in all types of rv and trailer. We got a very flat spot and it was quiet even with all the people.

The downside? It was very windy all night.

Report Check-In

Perfect spot to camp when visiting Capitol Reef. Maybe 10 minutes to the west entrance if that. Only a mile from town. It's probably as close as you can camp to the park and still have cell phone reception. Fast Verizon speeds and some T-Mobile as well. Only a few rigs here during the week. As expected, it filled in more on the weekend, but still room for more. Beautiful views and quiet. Zero trash at our site.

Report Check-In

Beautiful spot to camp! I was going to camp on the east side of the park but this side has AT&T service in Torrey as well as some of the sites if you stay closer to the front. Not too crowded. There’s no toilets that I see but there are fire pits. Very accessible to Torrey and any amenities you need in town.

Report Check-In

Perfect place right outside of Capitol Reef NP! Stunning sunsets. Some other trailers, campers around, but very private.

BLM dispersed camping. Dozens, if not 100 spots down this road. There are spaces closer to the highway before the cattle guard, and many more after it. Just after the cattle guard, the road branches, straight or right. We went right after seeing others’ comments about dirty sites down the straight. There is a dip right that will stop big rigs, our 24’ Class C had no problem and 2WD low clearance vehicles should have no problem. It’s been graded, probably within the last few months. We went down a half mile before picking a site, there were clay targets, but otherwise pretty clean out here - the farther you go the fewer people. The road continues for another mile or two, with many sites along it.

Not recommended if really wet, without 4WD, there are some spots on the road that clearly rutted in past rains.

2 bar ATT, Verizon works too. Great views, gently rolling terrain with small washes for the kids to play in. It is a bit windy.

Report Check-In

Road is just before/after big turn depending on your direction. It is marked with a road sign that has the Forest Ed Number first then the name below in smaller letters. 1-2 bar cell service. So far, super quiet. No Hwy noises.

Report Check-In

2WD Sprinter. Drove about 5mph for 5-10 minutes until an obvious cattle grate. Take center/straight road and there’s several sites ahead spaced out. Was just a little bumpy but fine at slow speed. Verizon has 3G service

We stayed here 2 nights. Very nice place close to Capitol Reef National Park. Strong winds.
As we were picking up pieces of glasses and trash, we crossed a ranger. Very quiet. Place for everyone. Rings for fire. Very cool place even with a 25 feet RV. Designated spots. Free.

Report Check-In

Stayed one night here, heaps of space and beautiful views but as others have stated it is exposed to strong winds. Good T-mobile signal.

Report Check-In

Stayed 3 nights here. Quiet and peaceful at night. Lots of places to camp and spread out. Extremely windy though, gusts over 30mph.
Drove the sketchier road in my short skoolie and didn’t like it. A big dip that’s hard to climb back out of, plus large stone slabs in the middle of the road. The road that continues straight after the cattle guard felt much safer.
Strong AT&T phone signal, 2-3 bars LTE.
Gorgeous views, but sadly lots of toilet paper and even human feces around. Lots of trash dumping and broken bottles too. Did what I could to clean up trash I found.

Report Check-In

This was one of the best free camp spot we have ever been at. Large space, beautiful view. Close to restaurants, groceries, shower and the visitor centre in Torrey. Not far from Capitol Reef. We were in a small pick-up but saw a few camper trucks and an RV.

Report Check-In

Half a mile from the cross of visitor center of Torrey.
Many places on the right side of the highway
Beware of wind. Can be strong.
Beautifull landscape.
Wild camping and of course free. Has AT&T fone signal.

Nice spot, beautiful views, not very quiet but room enough for everyone

As already stated, large blm land with many places to camp. Two initial roads, one leads to quarry with good access for class b, c and smaller trailers. The second road to the right road gets more adventurous, with a dip in the road at the beginning makes trailers and larger RVs a challenge.

28°F, calm, 2wd Sprinter Van, red dirt road moderately firm with partial snow cover. Chose first available pull off ~ 200 yds to SR24.

Report Check-In

Wide dirt road that eventually leads to a quarry, but it was easy to turn around with a Sprinter van. The spot we stayed at is up a small hill to the left before the quarry area. Good views, level parking.
