Boondocking in Utah!

Boondocking in Utah is one of the more popular places for dispersed camping due to six different national forests, an abundance of BLM lands, and several national monuments. The state also offers a generous state trust land policy for campers, and there are also boondocking opportunities at its state wildlife management areas.
