Get back to basics on Lake Powell’s Wahweap Bay, over at Lone Rock Beach’s primitive campground. Pitch your tent on the sandy beach, or in the dunes…it’s up to you! There aren’t any designated campsites, but it’s a large area. You can drive right on up, just try to follow established tire tracks or risk getting stuck in the sand. Even though there aren’t assigned spots, you’ll have access to toilets and outhouses, potable water, and cold showers. However, if you’re camping more than 200 yards from the outhouses, bring a porta-potty (park service patrols the area, so follow this rule!). While you’re in the area, take a break from the beach and the water and boogie on over to Lone Rock, a massive red rock formation.

Does anyone know if we can camp on the beach close to Lone Rock still?

Great dispersed camping with lots of space and vault toilets scattered throughout the area as well as the main bathroom at parking lot. They do have outdoor showers there too, but water is turned off during the off-season so only count on that if there during season. They also don't charge during off-season, but do during season. Great area and multiple beach spots as well as in the dune areas. Make sure your vehicle can drive through the sand as you'll need to for any of the spots. Can also get windy there during certain times of year. And no or very little cell service here (Verizon or AT&T) and issues overall in the area with service due to bouncing between the UT and AZ cell towers.

This campsite is phenomenal! Everything you could ask for out of beach camping. We camped here for three nights in November, and it was only us and a handful of RVs on the beach. Be mindful of the sand depending on what car you're driving, because it gets rather clay-like as you get closer to the water's edge. This campsite is a wonderful base from which to explore all the nooks and crannies of Lake Powell, or it's just a quick drive to Horseshoe Bend, Upper Antelope and Lower Antelope Canyon (we did both.) The closest town is Page, so if you forgot something for your set up, civilization isn't out of reach. There are both flush and non-flush toilets here, just position yourself within 200 yards of either to abide by park service rules.

Awesome spot! Be careful of the deep sand patches that come up quick or you'll be stuck before you know it, but otherwise 10/10 views and location.

Great place to camp next to the beach. Can get a bit windy at times but a beautiful place to stay

Lone Rock Beach is the perfect spot for a quick getaway trip. I'm sure this place can get pretty packed during the Spring / Summer months, so head over in Winter if you are able. The water is like total glass -- take the kayak out!

Awesome spot!

We got into the park a little after sunset so it was pretty dark on the ride in. It was not free- $14 fee if spending the night.

We were sketched about driving down to the beach in the dark but we followed the advice to stay on the northern side of the beach as we don’t have 4WD and it was perfect. Make a left at the bathroom building and follow that main path down, the sand is hard enough to support your vehicle- there were giant RVs parked along this part of the beach. Definitely some generator noise, which was a bit of a bummer. Though the bathrooms were closed for the winter, there were several vaulted toilets scattered about.

This place is totally worth the $14. Beautiful views, perfect location.
