Why Visit the Canyonlands National Park

A visit to the Canyonlands National Park is worth it because of the numerous spectacular views. The park is full of stunning features that catch the eye including the mesas, buttes, canyons, arches, and rivers.

History of the Canyonlands National Park

Many groups of people have moved in and out of the Canyonlands National Park in the last 10,000 years. The creation of the Canyonlands National park was advocated by Bates Wilson who was also the Arches National Monument Superintendent. That call was supported from 1961 by Stewart Udall the Interior Secretary then after he visited the land that is today, the Canyonlands. Canyonlands National Park was then established in September 1964 by President Lyndon B. Johnson and expanded in 1971 to its current size after the Horseshoe Canyon Annex was added.

Nice campground mostly due to its location and views. Exists to provide camping and parking at the head of the trail into Horseshoe Canyon and its rock art. The 31 miles of dirt road in from Highway 24 aren’t bad but sometimes there are long sections of drifted sand to be crossed. Has a pit latrine with nice painted reproductions of some of the rock art. During the season there is a volunteer ranger who lives in a sheepherder’s trailer above and out of sight from the campground. He primarily acts as a docent and guardian for the rock art.

The road in is 4×4.

Bridger Jack Mesa is open all year. I really liked this place and am glad to have a place near Canyonlands where I can just show up and be able to camp legally. It’s so much nicer than having to make reservations with the law enforcement folks and be on a schedule. The other campers are climbers and there is a friendly scene.

The road up to the campground is pretty rough and probably keeps a lot of people out. If you are not familiar with Utah be aware that dirt roads can turn to quicksand after it rains or snows. I drive a Blazer that has 4×4 and good clearance, and had not problem at all. YMMV

I spent a little over a week there last May (2021)I was in a 29’class c pulling a motorcycle trailer, and had no trouble getting in and out. The site is close to the highway, but there is not much traffic. I had no cell service, and the nearest pit toilet is about 10 miles away. I was parked on the rim of the canyon with great views in all directions! I had the site to myself most of the time with the occasional motorcycle or jeep going up the trail to Jacobs Chair.

This was my base camp for exploring the Bears Ears area for over a week. I did get stranded at the end due to overnight rain/snow. The road turned into a huge mud bath.

Places and Things to Do and See with Descriptions

Since there are many things to do and see in the Canyonlands National Park, staying there for a considerable duration is essential. That helps you to make many visits to different spots inside the park. For that reason, therefore, deciding where you camp during your trip is critical. The boondocking spots in Canyonlands consist of two front-country campgrounds (Island in the Sky and The Needles) and many other backcountry camping spots and below are the ten great of them:

1. Island in the Sky Campground

This campground is also known as the Willow Flat. The campground has 12 campsites that are given on a first-come-first-served basis. That means that for you to get a campsite from this campground, you have to do proper planning and arrive early enough. Arriving early is essential especially during the peak season since it protects you from the frustration of missing a campsite. The proximity of this campground to the Mesa Arch makes many campers prefer it to any other in or around the Canyonlands National Park. However, it is good to note that the campground has no clean water and that means that you have to carry your water from the Visitor’s Center. You will therefore need a good-size container for carrying the water.

2. The Needles Campground

The Needles is the largest campground in Canyonlands National Park. It consists of 26 individual campsites and three group sites located in different spots in the Needles District. The campground has fire rings, picnic tables, and toilet facilities. If you want to camp for one night as an individual, you will be charged $20. During spring and fall, you can make reservations for individual sites while during the other times of the year, the sites are given on a first-come-first-served basis. Reservations are important since the campsites fill very quickly during spring and fall. Reservations for group sites can be done from Mid-March to Mid-November.

3. Airport Campground

This campground derives its name from a formation within that area that resembles an airport tower. The campground is also flat and open space hence looking like a landing strip. For you to access the four campsites in the area, permits are required.

4. Chesler Park

Boondocking at Chesler Park is just fascinating. However, to access the site, you will have to hike a distance of around 11.6 miles but the hike is worth it. As you take the hike, there are colorful sceneries such as the red sandstone and high prairie formations. Furthermore, the campsite usually has fewer people hence no crowding.

5. Devil’s Kitchen Campsites

Devil’s Kitchen Campsite is just a stunning destination, but you will require to drive for about 4-5 hours along the difficult Elephant Hill Road. A four-wheel drive with a length of not more than 21 feet is required to get through the difficult drive. The campground has 4 campsites and a toilet.

6. Gooseberry Campground

This campground is located along the White Rim Trail and lies on a Mesa. That allows you to have stunning views of most parts of the Canyonlands National Park. If you have your own car the better since accessing it on foot will require much time as the hike is long.

7. Labyrinth

Labyrinth Campsites are located on the Island in the Sky District adjacent to White Rim Road. The Green River is also just a few meters away from these campsites. Labyrinth campsites have a very beautiful view of the sky. The wonderful view and the Green River make these campsites unique.

8. Maze Overlook Campground

Once you get yourself a permit, you can access this campground by foot or through either a mountain bike or overland vehicle. The campground has great solitude but has only two sites with no amenities. That requires you to bring your own facilities including a toilet system.

9. Murphy Point Overlook

You will need to plan ahead for you to find yourself in Murphy Point Overlook Campsites because it is only one permit that is given per night. Within these campsites, you will have a great experience of the sunset and sunrise just from the comfort of your tent window.

10. White Crack

To access White Crack Campground, you will require a high-clearance vehicle and carry sunscreen and enough water. The campground has only one site.

Canyonlands National Park

Things to Do at the Canyonlands National Park

A visit to the Canyonlands National Park would not be complete if you don’t stop over at the following areas and enjoy different views of the park:

1. Grand View Point

This is an impressive viewpoint in the Canyonlands National Park. From this point, you can have a stunning view of numerous canyons shaped by the Colorado River and Green River.

2. Aztec Butte

Aztec Butte Trail gives you an open view of the Island in the Sky Mesa and the Trail Canyon while it only takes you 1.5 hours.

3. Green River Overlook

Enjoying a view from the Green River Overlook is another top thing to do at the Canyonlands National Park. Apart from the Green River, you can also see Ekker Butte, White Rim Road, and Orange Cliffs from this wonderful viewpoint.

4. Mesa Arch

This is one of the famous formations in Canyonlands National Park and while standing on its top, you will have a spectacular view of the La Sal Mountains and the White Rim. To get iconic pictures of this wonderful formation, taking them at sunrise would be the best time.

5. Upheaval Dome

This is another beautiful scenery at the Canyonlands National Park that you don’t want to miss anytime you visit the park. It is a huge crater that was probably formed by a meteorite.

6. White Rim Road

White Rim Road loops around the Island in the Sky mesa and it takes around 2 days with a four-wheel drive. This scenic dirty drive will lead you to sceneries that are not easily accessible by hiking.
