Okay, I need some camping ideas.
My sister is coming into town for a week, and we want to g somewhere this weekend.
Not something local (no mt. charleston).
I've already been to Panaca, Pioche, Ely (several times), Death Valley, Mt. Charleston, Zion (few times), Carpenter Canyon, and some others.
Looking for something within "jeep distance" (not much more than 4 hours each way).
We WERE looking at Grand Staircase/Escalante, but it looks like there only 2 "improved" campgrounds (White House being one) and that only has 5 camp sites, so it'll likely be full. The only issue with primitive camping is that it requires a permit. I dont care if there are terlets or dumpstahs, thats not a concern to us.
Considering maybe Bryce Canyon, but thats beyond jeep distance and is at 8000' elevation. Also will likely be busy.
Zion is always an option because there is plenty to do there, but all the reservable sites are reserved...
I wanted to go to Pine Valley, but it's closed.
We were considering Sequoia, but that is like 7 hours away, thats a long trip for a 2 day excursion.
Any suggestions within 2-4 hours? All it has to be is a place to camp (legally) with some trails and stuff for us to hike. It'd be cool if it were off the beaten path even.
