Quiet campsites (boondocking) Moab and also South Grand Canyon area late march

Hi all

We will be in a 4x4 pop-up truck camper, (so easy to off road) and I'm looking to find scenic quiet safe boondocking late march.

Specifically just 2 areas - (sadly short on time and limited to only these 2 areas)

just a tiny bit north or just south of Moab, UT (so easy dinner in Moab that night)

and also at, or very close to the South rim of Grand Canyon.

Yes of course we'll watch for road closures, and watch the weather....

and I believe that roads may close that make it impossible to get to the South rim of the Grand Canyon.

We are fully self contained, and prefer scenic and quiet boondocking.

Thanks for any suggestions! :)


I am not going to give you the exact location online but this is an easy spot to get to. This is off the Hwy 191probably by about 20 minutes near Hwy 313 north of Moab. There are several dispersed campsites there, the view is spectacular, I actually forgot the name of the camp. We were there late June and had no issues with crowds.
