Bryce Canyon National Park – A Mystical Fairyland with Dispersed Camping

Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah – Hoodoos and Free Camping

Bryce is the lost city of Atlantis found… The main amphitheater containing thousands of hoodoos (odd-shaped rock pillars that were formed over many years by erosion) is one of the most alien things I’ve ever seen. We only had one power day in Bryce before we headed to Zion, plus it was Memorial Day weekend and exceptionally crowded, so we didn’t do anything too far off the beaten path. However, we did find amazing truck camping sites on a long, winding US Forest Service road within the park. There were miles of camp spots – ranging from ones that were less exposed and closer to the hoodoos (pictured below), to those located high atop peaks overlooking the stunning pink and white mountain ranges (also pictured below). And, for others who need to shower once in awhile, there’s a campground run by the National Park Service right inside an entrance (and close to the aforementioned USFS road) with paid showers. (If you’d like to reach out to Bryce Canyon directly for more info, please contact them here).
