Visitors to the Grand Staircase/Escalante National Monument area often rave that it’s one of their favorite outdoor trips, like, ever.

Visitors to the Grand Staircase/Escalante National Monument area often rave that it’s one of their favorite outdoor trips, like, ever. And it’s easy to see why—you can explore majestic canyons before sleeping under the clear night sky covered in a blanket of stars in a remote canyon…yeah, it’s pretty great. If you’re looking for a "developed" campground in the Escalante Canyons area, though, you’ve got two options. One is Deer Creek, and we say “developed” because there’s isn’t a whole lot in the way of amenities. Like water, for example. Be sure to plan ahead for that important little detail. But, what you’re lacking in modernity, you’ll make up for in sweet, sweet seclusion. This campground only has seven sites, which means you won’t have to fight the crowds.

Great place for exploring scenic byway 12, preferred this wee camp to the more popular Calf Creek campsite on the other side of Boulder. Easier to get a site here even though there are less spots than Calf Creek, peaceful, laid back and friendly, cute little campsites and toilets, from memory water too as it is right near the creek. No falls here like at Calf Creek but you can get up early and buy a coffee in Boulder to brace you for an early morning walk to the Calf Creek falls which is a short drive away. You are also close to the BurrTrail switchback and the Hells backbone road, great if you like a bit of an off road thrill. And you can splurge at the lovely Hells Backbone Grill in Boulder especially their amazing cocktails.
