Utah Campgrounds

Dale and I said our goodbyes on Friday morning and I got on the road "Solo" about 8:00. My intention was to get to a Forest campground just south of Provo early enough in the day to beat the weekend campers. I had no reservations, and knew I was taking a chance on ending up in a Wal-Mart parking lot for two nights.

But luck was with me and I tucked into one of only a handful of open spots in Diamond Campground, off Rt 6.

It was a beautiful space, but ended up being the noisiest one in the entire campground. I was right next to the campground host, who for some unknown reason felt he had to run two 6500W generators from 8:00 in the morning until the clock struck 10:00pm.

After a while it just became white noise, and I was able to read and watch a couple of DVDs. Hanna and I walked several times along a lovely stream. I had a sporadic cell signal, but it was enough to touch base with all my family members and read email, news, and Facebook.

I left this morning (Sunday) around 9:00, with any open campground between Logan and Bear Lake as my destination. I made stops at Wal-Mart, Petsmart and Home Depot, and with road construction a good part of the way,

it was 4:00 when I finally pulled into Guinavah-Malibu Campground about 10 miles out of Logan. I have another nice shady space, and was lucky to get it, as there were only two open RV spots in the whole campground.

I have no cell signal, but lots of road noise, so I will only stay one night and try to find a better spot farther north east tomorrow. I still have plenty of time and not many miles to go to meet up with Robin and Ken in Jackson Hole on Friday.


  1. You must have been on the road early today. Glad everything is going well and hope you find a camp with cell.

  2. You're having bad luck with noise; first the generator and now the road.
