FREE camping in Utah!

You can disperse camp just about anywhere in Utah, but your best bets are in the Wasatch mountain range, which runs down from the north to the center of the state, and the southern area where the Zion, Arches, Bryce Canyon are located.
Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument To get lost in the desert landscapes of southern Utah, you have to visit the Grand Staircase. Nearly all of the one million-acre monument is open to campers. If you can find a flat patch of ground that suits you, that’s your campsite. Camping permits are required for dispersed camping, but they’re free and available from the monument’s ranger stations. 
Bryce Canyon If you’re in the mood for an otherworldly adventure, nothing beats Bryce Canyon National Park. Known for its hoodoos, or massive ‘rock fingers’ jutting up from the canyon floor. Inside the park, you’re limited to two developed campgrounds, the North Campground and the Sunset Campground. Options are more numerous outside the park, where dispersed camping is plentiful. 
Dutchman Flat This high-elevation dispersed campsite is ideal for those hoping to stay close to the Salt Lake City-Provo region. Dutchman Flat is also just outside the ghost town of Forest City, where you can still see the remains of the late 19th-century community, specifically its cemetery and smelter. There are no facilities at the campground, but, for many, that’s one of its draws.
Lava Point Campground Zion National Park is one of the most popular parks in the country. Unfortunately, it only has two campgrounds inside: the South Campground and the Watchman Campground. The park’s third campground is about an hour and a half north of the area at Lava Point. Campsites have pit toilets and trash cans, but there’s no drinking water and certainly no showers. Unlike most national park campgrounds, Lava Point is free, though it’s open only from May through October.
