Best Tent Camping: Utah: Your Car-Camping Guide to Scenic Beauty, the Sounds of Nature, and an Escape from Civilization (Paperback)
Camping Guide to Utah Highlights Best Spots to Sleep Under the Stars
Snowcapped mountains, forested wilderness, red-rock canyons, and hidden backcountry--Utah offers some of the most diverse and breathtaking campground settings in the world.
Best Tent Camping: Utah, by Jeffrey Steadman, provides a guide to the 50 best places in the state to pitch a tent and spend the night--without being bothered by the noise of loud portable stereos, large recreational vehicles, and crowds. Jeffrey zigzagged the state to create this in-depth look at Utah's best tent camping locations, including alternatives to the busy campgrounds in Utah's five national parks. In addition to providing campers with essential information about each campground (including season, rates, facilities, and how to reserve a site), the full-color guide identifies the best sites at the best campgrounds, offers information on exciting day trips, suggests hikes and activities accessible from the campgrounds, and describes the flora and fauna that campers might encounter on a trip.
Whether campers are seeking a quiet site beside a peaceful stream or a cliffside camp overlooking beautiful canyons, Best Tent Camping: Utah is an indispensable guide for the person who likes to sleep in a tent not far from the convenience of the car.
About the Author
Jeffrey Steadman was born and raised in Utah, where he began exploring the outdoors shortly after leaving the womb. As a child he spent his summers exploring the canyons of the Wasatch Front on family hikes. These days he explores all that Utah has to offer in every season. He's slept in snowcaves, been in a lightning and hailstorm at about 12,000 feet, and has been known to catch fish out of local streams with his bare hands. Jeffrey is an accomplished writer and enjoys introducing new campers to the outdoors through youth volunteer programs, classroom instruction, or planning giant camping trips with new friends. When he's not in the backcountry, he enjoys cooking, gardening, photography, and spending time with family. He currently lives near Salt Lake City with his dog, Mountain Jane, a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon who just can't get enough of camping.
