Come pitch your tent and build your fire in the provided fire ring in this beautiful, private, backcountry site. There is one completed private campsite and we are building another at Bluebird Hollow so you will have this campground all to yourself or share it only with the hosts themselves.
Only 18.2 miles from the East Entrance of Zion National Park off North Fork Country Rd. Bluebird Hollow is beneath Table Bench on the north side of Orderville Gulch. The site is 7.2 miles from Zion Narrows Upper Trailhead and 5 miles from Orderville Canyon Trailhead, which places you perfectly to enjoy Zion's backcountry. OR you can drive, hike, or mountain bike further up the canyon jeep trails to Twin Hollows and Bauer Canyon (see maps of the area). You can also continue up North Fork Country Rd to Navajo Peak and connect to Highway 14, past Navajo Lake (about 24.5 Mines from BlueBird Hollow) where you can go left to Cedar City and the turn off to Cedar Breaks National Monument or right to Duck Creek.
Bluebird Hollow is a backcountry site, and therefore not for everyone. The road there is just over 10 miles beyond the pavement. N Fork Country Rd is maintained by Kane County. We have traveled the length of N Fork Country Rd in our old Dodge Caravan, but Cougar Canyon Rd and the other roads to Bluebird Hollow are crossed by washouts and cut by deep dry washes and when wet, all the dirt roads in the area become sticky, slippery mires.
Your front wheel drive car should be able to get to Cougar Canyon Rd turn off and then up the road a short way. There is a turn off ½ mile up Cougar Canyon where an old truck is parked in an old grown-over parking area on the right side of the road. You can park here and hike/bike (or if you have them, unload and drive your ATV/ORVs) the rest of the way to Bluebird Hollow (about a 2.2 mile hike/ride/drive). If you are concerned about the road, park and hike. The parking area is on BLM land not private land. If you are comfortable driving on dirt roads, you should be able to get most AWD vehicles and the larger engined FWD and manual shift cars to the site (if conditions are dry). 4WD/4x4s will have no problem. There are some steep grades you have to take slow to navigate the washouts. Because of wet road concerns, we have a flexible cancelation policy.

The vibe at Bluebird Hollow
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
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.
