 Backcountry Camping

A free over-night permit is required for dispersed camping outside of developed campgrounds. Permits are available at all Monument visitor centers. To protect soil crust, vegetation, and other resources, please park and camp in already disturbed areas. No dispersed camping is allowed in the front-country zone. Please pack out all waste and use portable human waste bags. Backcountry camping is one of the many ways people enjoy the dark skies and natural quiet of the Monument's backcountry. Thank you for limiting noise and use of artificial lights in order to protect the experience of other visitors.
