Default Utah Camping advice

We are planning a trip to the National Parks in Utah in late May or early June. I looked on the NPS site and it is overwhelming trying to figure out where to camp with our 16 ft Fun Finder. Actually some of the NPS areas are already full. Any ideas for great camping and access to the parks out side the parks - maybe one of the National Forests campsites? Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

If you planning on going to Moab, Arches Nat. Park, there a lots of campsites around there as well as koa, and other pay sites. You can camp along the colorado river but you will be boondocking.

Bryce Canyon Ruby's inn full hookups.

Default Utah camping

I never stay in a regular campground in Utah, I always boondock, or what the Gov't agencies call 'dispersed camping'. You can boondock on national forest and BLM land for free, but there are no facilities and no hookups. You would watch for gas stations that have dump facilities. Some private campgrounds may allow you to dump and fill up water for a small fee when you are not camping there. Popular boondocking areas, like along the river outside of Moab do fill up so you may have to go farther into the public lands to find a spot. This works well if you have a small rig, those with big rigs may find boondocking more challenging. especially if you have to turn around in the boonies to find a spot elsewhere. Using Google Earth can be helpful.

Most beautiful campsite in the US is Kodachrome Basin. Full hookups and between Bryce and Moab. Get up early and watch the sun come over the red rock cliffs. You'll remember it your whole life.

Someone mentioned Kodachrome -- wonderful place, not too far from Bryce. Here is a blog post -- lots of photos:
