There are many many places for dispersed camping along Diamond Road based on recommendation of Canyonlands ranger.

Latest Check-Ins

Lone Mesa was a nice site. Spots are close together and pretty exposed, something to keep in mind for tent camping. Road was better than willow springs or Klondike bluff in my opinion. Easily passable in my 2WD sedan. VERY windy on this day, tent blew away.

Report Check-In

dirt road to reach the place, we were there with 27ft long RV. Many places on a small hill, many campers, nice views. Stayed there 2 nights

Nice dispersed camping area beautiful view.

Report Check-In

Portable toilet required, we were checked by a BLM ranger super early. If you’re tent camping stay up top close to your vehicle and don’t make your site in the desert down the embankment.

Pretty much as described. Popular spot with several campers in RVs, vans, and tents. Spots spread out enough to give you a sense of privacy and safety. We turned off the main road up a bumpy driveway to an elevated strip of sites with a few trees just before the turnoff towards Lone Mesa Campground. We took the spot furthest on the right, which felt the most private. Lots of fire rings. Some cows grazing nearby. Road in is dirt but okay without 4WD. We have high clearance but probably isn’t necessary. Looks like you could continue down any number of dirt roads and find various spots. This is probably the most accessible and level place you’ll find in this area.

We did experience a light dusting of snow overnight. It was melted very quickly and did not impede our drive out to the main road in any way.

Very cool camping area right by Canyonlands. Easy to get to and the sites were kind of free form for the most part.

Loved it here. Lots of sites. Pulled in after dark on a Saturday night and had to drive around a bit to find a site, but we got one that was on its own with fabulous views! Need your own toilet. Road in is easy, a bit bumpy searching for sites. Some sites had a bit of shade/wind block, and some were suitable for groups.

Beautifull place. Easy to find. 4G. A lot of fireplaces. Nive view, some campers around.

Nice place to camp.
Road is sandy so if it rains i would avoid to go by RV.

Nice free spot with lots of cycling trails around. This spot is on the hill and because of that its nice and windy. AT&T coverage
