The vibe at Lone Rock Beach Primitive Camping
Drop some Lone Rock Beach Primitive Camping knowledge on us.
I love this campsite! As stated it is first come first serve with no designated spots. You can find a spot that you like and set up shop. The closer you go to the beach the sand does get really deep. ONLY GO THAT FAR IF YOU HAVE 4x4 and experience in deep sand or you will get stuck. TIP: When you come down the hill towards the beach after the outhouses go more towards the North West of the campground. It is more private and less sandy. If you are coming from Page make sure to get supplies before you leave as it is the last major town for awhile. Have a blast and make sure to take a swim.
Awesome open campground right on the lake! It can be quiet or loud, depending on how many people are there. The lake is so much fun so be sure to bring your swimsuit and any water toys you might have and be sure to take a swim! Seriously - only go to the sand if you have a 4x4 and know how to use it - I have seen too many rescues here! Otherwise, park in the pavement parking lot and just walk down, its not worth the headache of trying to get towed out (and cell service is spotty down there).
I didn't camp there because this place is invaded by noisy RVs with fuel generators. If you're looking for loneliness and quiet just run away.
Maybe things are different when it's not season peak (I was there in late June).
This site is typically crowded but even if you're not able to get a spot on the waterfront, there are still plenty of areas where you'll find solitude and wake up to a gorgeous sunrise over Lake Powell. The stars are incredible at night!
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.
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!
