Default Hatch Point Utah

This is one of our favorite places to visit. This is Hatch Point Campground in Utah. It's part of the Canyonlands Rim Recreation Area, which is managed by the BLM.

The first photo is the view from Hatch Point:



A daytime shot of our campsite:



Here is a time lapse shot from early evening:

Great photos! Looks like you can 'Get away from it all' there.

I really like the time lapse photo.

Thanks Marco.

We do love that place, we've been there pretty much every year. It's very, very peaceful and it's not unusual for us to be the only campers there.

You have some great photos on your site. Where was your fall trip? Looks like a place that we would like!

My "Fall Trip" photos were taken on the East coast of Vancouver Island. We took the scenic routes when available. We stayed at Living Forest Campground in Nanaimo then Ripple Rock RV Park just North of Campbell River and then Telegraph Cove Marina RV Park which is just South of Port McNeil.

3 miles of gravel road to get to Ripple Rock RV Park but it is a really nice RV Park. There was floating restaurant at the marina. Probably the same amount of gravel/logging road to get to Telegraph Cove Marina RV Park.

Good link here:

Thanks! We'll have to check it out sometime. I wonder how hard it is to bring the dogs back and forth across the border?

The road to Hatch Point is also all gravel, about 15 miles of it. It's not a great road - which is probably the reason that there are so few people out there. We just close all the vents and drive slow.

Nothing like going somewhere and roughing it for a couple days with no others around.
Been to this campground, along with making the entire circle of Canyonlands NP, nothing like it. Words can't describe the desolate beauty!
