Deep in the mountains east of Zion National Park, up 8 miles of county maintained dirt road (NorthFork Country Rd), and 2 miles of private unmaintained dirt road you will find Bluebird Hollow. Situated below Table Bench in the mountains above the famous Orderville Gultch Trail, surrounded by BLM and School Trust land this site is truly away from the usual Zion crowds. The Hollow rests on the side of a hill covered in juniper and pinyon pine. Though you need a 4x4, 4WD, or AWD vehicle to get there, you will treasure the views of cliffs and mountains. If you just want to stick around, you can hike or ride your bicycles or ORVs down to the stream and then up the trail to Twin Hollows and Bauer Canyon or just walk off the road and explore the BLM land below table bench. If you want to see Zion, pack the car with picnick supplies and spend the day in Zion NP (Bluebird Hollow is only 18 miles from the East entrance). You can travel through the tunnel to the main canyon or hike the less known trails of East Zion such as the East Rim trail or the Overlook trail and even catch a glimpse of east Zion’s big horned sheep as you explore. If you have the canyoneering skills you can take one of Eastern Zion’s famous backcountry trails such as Orderville Gultch Trail (just 5 miles away) or the Narrows trail (just over 7 miles away). Also there are the less well known East Zion trails such as Birch Hollow trail and trails out of Ponderosa Ranch just down the road. Then come back to this private haven in the woods, away from the crowds and clamor and see the Milky Way as you sit by the fire that night.

This site is very secluded and off the beaten path, but it has amazing veiws all around it. If you are into canyoneering and cave hunting, there is a trail called "birch hollow" close by that includes both. Karlee is a great host and had wood, water and toliet facilities set up for us.
The only down fall to the campsite is how far it is away from everything and the drive to the site. All of which are doable, but I would suggest taking an all-wheel drive vehicle.
