Uranium Springs is located 40 minutes down a rough dirt road (we strongly suggest 4wd vehicles). At the end of your journey through grasslands you'll crest a rise that will expose you to why they call this area the Painted Desert. The Uranium Springs camp ground is divided into two parts. The visitor camping is nestled in the amazing natural desert. Where you can hike for miles finding all manner of rocks, Petrified wood fossils and wildlife. As far as wildlife, animals we have personally seen include, deer, antelope, porcupine, rabbits, chipmunks, prairie dogs, bobcats, ravens, owls, turkey buzzards, mice, pack rats, bull snakes, and coyotes. There are more animals and insects that call the area home, and we recommend looking into the local fauna so you know what to expect. The other part of Uranium Springs is used to host fully themed post apocalyptic events. When we are hosting events we close the natural camping area. We have positioned two camp areas where you don't see the apocalyptic town of Uranium Springs, so your views are mostly of the desert landscape. If you want a tour of the Uranium Springs town, that can be requested.
