Looking for a retreat from the hustle of daily life - where the stars are bright, the air is clear, and the only noise is a nearby owl hooting into the night? BLM Utah provides outstanding camping opportunities for every comfort-level. From remote, backcountry camping to front-country developed sites, you will find the perfect campsite on BLM Utah-managed lands. BLM camping areas provide differing levels of services - plan ahead and be prepared, bring water, and the appropriate means to deal with your trash and human/dog waste.
Visit Recreation.gov to reserve group campsites. For all other campgrounds and dispersed camping inquiries, contact the local BLM Field Office (link to Utah directory).
Keep in mind that popular camping areas, such as Moab, fill quickly. Please plan accordingly.

Because of the volume of visitors to the Moab area, the BLM has found it necessary to restrict camping to campgrounds or designated sites in our very popular areas. Campgrounds are found along or adjacent to Highways 128, 313 and 279, on the Kane Creek Road, at Ken's Lake, in the Canyon Rims Recreation Area, and in the Sand Flats Recreation Area.
In areas close to Moab, dispersed camping is restricted to designated sites along the Dubinky Well Road, Gemini Bridges Road, the Black Ridge Road, and Pack Creek Roads, the area accessed by the Mill Canyon Road and the Blue Hills Road, and south of Moab in the Blue Hill/Picture Frame Arch area. These sites are marked with a brown post and tent symbol. Pack in, pack out.
