Where To Stay

The best place to stay in the area is with nature itself. There are some great camp sites you can reserve beforehand either in the parks or outside. We do recommend to try camping in one of the parks for a night or two. It’s worth it seeing the Milky Way with rock formations all around you.

However, if your feeling adventurous then you should try some of the free camp sites that can be found on BLM land. Be warned though, camping during the summer can be a chore. The weather can get to over 100 degrees and it can be windy/dusty in certain areas.
