We grew up recreating in this area. Our family still has the annual tradition of snowmobiling from Monte Cristo, stopping for lunch at Hardware Ranch, and continuing on to Bear Lake. The trails are endless in these mountains and the solitude abundant. Our property is smack in the middle between Monte Cristo parking lot and Hardware Ranch. It is the perfect location to set up camp and be ready hit the trails first thing in the morning. Learn more about this land: Private land camping between Hardware Ranch and Monte Cristo with fabulous views and stunning sunsets. This area is a recreation mecca with access to miles and miles of national forest trails less than a mile away! Dirt biking, riding ATVs, horse back riding, and hiking are all very popular and very accessible. You can't beat this location if you love the outdoors, enjoy solitude, and crave backcountry recreation!Private land camping between Hardware Ranch and Monte Cristo with fabulous views and stunning sunsets.

Booked very last minute and was worried we wouldn’t get a confirmation in time but Jocilyn got back to us in less than 5 minutes. Enjoyed our time there, very peaceful place especially the mornings and evenings.

Wonderful stay here. So beautiful Nothing better than rolling up to a private campsite , no need to jostle for a spot – with acres and acres of no one else around you. Jocilyn was so helpful – even let us add an extra day cause we were having such a good time. Will be back!

Had a great time on this beautiful land! As long as no one is in the yurt that’s above the campsite it’s very private. I do wish the yurt was located further away from the campsite to create more privacy. The host was wonderful to work with and we had so much fun!

October is a different vibe
If you’re looking for remote, then this is the place for sure. You’re remote but still in an area well traveled by hunters and ATV/UTV motor sports nearby. We are new to Utah and weren’t expecting everything to be brown and crispy, unlike the pictures shown with everything so green and beautiful. My husband was in his element after growing up camping in the desert. Definitely a different kind of beauty in October! The site itself was mostly cleared, but I think it’s been a resting spot for livestock, as there was a lot of animal pellets everywhere. It didn’t really bother us, but just something to be aware of. We brought a shovel and it helped with clearing out the area. The roads to get into the site were dirt and a bit rough with towing a trailer, but doable. You just need to go slow and steady to get to the destination. Also, we arrived after dark and it was tricky navigating to the campsite. I recommend you arrive before dark if possible. We definitely want to check this spot out again in the spring or early summer to see the greenery and wildflowers for a different type of camping experience! It was beautiful and different!

360° degree views. Dark Sky with a Phenomenal view of the Milky Way. This is a very primitive site-no water, no bathroom and no trees as it is in a meadow. If you plan to be in site during the day make sure to bring some sort of shade. It looked like there was lots of area to explore if you had an ATV. Dirt road is very bumpy, and the road leading to the site definitely requires a higher clearance vehicle (truck, suv). Host was helpful and prompt with instructions and such. We definitely enjoyed our brief stay and would visit again!
