Free Camping

What’s the deal? There really is no free camping in most cases. It’s either cash expense or environmental expense. Please! If free camping means chopping down our trees for your camp fire, or driving your car onto our fragile desert, or making another stupid connector trail from your campsite to the kessel run… Please don’t free camp! Think and learn to camp ”low impact” or just head on down I-70. Thanks, now… on to free camping…

Rabbit Valley
I-70 exit #2 almost on the Utah border, trails a plenty, camping in fragile desert environment. No facilities, use existing sites only.

Bookcliffs/18 Road
Camping is first come, first served, $10/night. Toilets and fire pits, no water, bring firewood.  DO NOT CUT DOWN TREES OR BURN THEM.  Camp only in existing sites.  PLEASE don’t make your own new trail from your campsite to Kessel Run.  The trailheads are only a 1/4 mile away and the tracks we mountain bikers are making are quite a mess. Please, leave it as good or better than you found it. Thanks! Bookcliffs directions? Stop in the shop and yes, you’ll get the same speech again about keeping single track single!
