General Information:

The Bureau of Land Management Monticello Field Office administers nearly 1.8 million surface acres of land. Of that land, over million acres make up Bears Ears National Monument. These acres contain landscapes ranging from the winding waters of the San Juan River to the deep gorges of Cedar Mesa and the sheer, dramatic cliffs of Indian Creek. The human uses of Monticello Field Office land are as varied as its landforms: people come visit for ceremonial purposes, recreation, wood cutting, livestock grazing, camping, and more. 

Bears Ears National Monument draws many visitors to the Monticello Field Office each year. To learn more about monument management, please visit our management page. If you would like more information on recreation opportunities in the Bears Ears region, please visit our recreation page.

No matter what brings you to Monticello Field Office lands, please remember to know before you go, visit with respect, and practice Leave No Trace principles. Preparation is the best tool for any visit. If you have any questions about the Bureau of Land Management Monticello Field Office, please reach out to us and we will get in touch with you as soon as possible.
