Recreation and Visitor Services

The Bureau of Land Management’s recreation resources and visitor services support strong local economies and public land conservation.  As we work to enhance recreational opportunities for the American family, we strive to remain a good neighbor.  This means respecting how communities use the public lands, as well as including their voices in our management decisions. 

As the public demands more access and diverse recreation opportunities, we will be focusing on sites that have the highest visitation to make any needed adjustments for a better experience.  For example, we will evaluate how visitor services, travel management planning, and law enforcement may be improved for residents and visitors.

Utah – Recreation | Bureau of Land Management

A tent sits under starry skies in Cedar Mesa.

Looking for a retreat from the hustle of daily life – where the stars are bright, the air is clear, and the only noise is a nearby owl hooting into the night? BLM Utah provides outstanding camping opportunities for every comfort-level. From remote, backcountry camping to front-country developed sites, you will find the perfect campsite on BLM Utah-managed lands. BLM camping areas provide differing levels of services – plan ahead and be prepared, bring water, and the appropriate means to deal with your trash and human/dog waste.

Visit Recreation.gov to reserve group campsites. For all other campgrounds and dispersed camping inquiries, contact the local BLM Field Office (link to Utah directory). 

Keep in mind that popular camping areas, such as Moab, fill quickly. Please plan accordingly.

Cedar City 

There are great camping opportunities within the Cedar City Field Office. From dispersed camping sites to developed campgrounds, visitors can camp and relax in between popular and remote recreation sites. Have you visited the Three Peaks Recreation Area? Three Peaks offers disc golf, mountain biking, horseback riding, radio control flying, shooting, and OHV-riding in addition to camping.


There are three small developed campgrounds located on the Monument. Campsites are first-come, first-serve with no advance reservations. A free over-night permit is required for dispersed camping outside developed campgrounds. Permits are available at all Monument visitor centers. 


The Kanab Field Office currently maintains two developed campgrounds: the Ponderosa Grove Campground located near the Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, and the White House Campground near the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness Area.


The Moab Field Office maintains 38 campgrounds, over 600 campsites, for your enjoyment.  These campgrounds offer views of spectacular red rock cliffs amidst a green ribbon of vegetation. Most campsites are first come, first serve, although a few larger group sites may be reserved in advanced through Recreation.gov.  The Moab area serves more than 3 million visitors each year, and to protect resources, the BLM has found it necessary to restrict camping to campgrounds or designated sites in popular areas closer to town. For a map and more information about camping, please see our Moab Field Office Visitor Guide.  Campgrounds are found along or adjacent to Highways 128, 313 and 279, on the Kane Creek Road, at Ken’s Lake, in the Canyon Rims Recreation Area, and in the Sand Flats Recreation Area.  Please see our Moab Daily Camping Map for information about camping along the Moab Daily section of the Colorado River.

Most of the field office remains open to primitive camping experiences, however dispersed camping is restricted to designated sites in certain areas, such as along the Dubinky Well Road, Gemini Bridges Road, the Black Ridge Road, and Pack Creek Roads, the area accessed by the Mill Canyon Road and the Blue Hills Road, and south of Moab in the Blue Hill/Picture Frame Arch area. There are a limited number of sites marked with a brown post and tent symbol. When

Recreation | Bureau of Reclamation

Welcome to the Bureau of Reclamation’s Recreation Homepage

Jackson Lake

The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) has gravitated from development of single-purpose agricultural projects toward a multipurpose approach to water resource development that includes recreation. Today, Reclamation plays a major role in meeting the increasing public demands for water-based outdoor recreation facilities and opportunities.

The recreation areas developed as a result of Reclamation water projects are among the Nation’s most popular for water-based outdoor recreation (see footnote below). Reclamation projects include approximately 6.5 million acres of land and water that is, for the most part, available for public outdoor recreation.

Navajo CampingIn addition to offering water-based outdoor recreation opportunities, these recreation areas often include important natural and cultural resources and provide unique educational and interpretive opportunities. Twelve (12) Reclamation water projects have been designated as National Recreation Areas that are managed by the National Park Service or the USDA Forest Service.

Reclamation projects have created a variety of recreation opportunities on the rivers downstream from the dams, including world class whitewater rafting and fishing opportunities. In other instances, Reclamation projects have created valuable national wildlife refuges and state wildlife management areas that offer recreation opportunities such as camping, hiking, hunting, photography, and wildlife viewing. Eleven (11) national wildlife refuges have been created as a result of a Reclamation Federal water project.

Provo RiverReclamation also assists local communities in attracting recreation-related investments and involves local citizens in the decisionmaking process. As a result, recreation developments meet public needs and expectations.

To use and enjoy recreation areas and facilities that are open to the public, no use permits are required. However, other types of use activities may require authorization from Reclamation. For additional permitting information, please view Reclamation’s land and water surface use information.

Share the Experience

Did you capture a beautiful photograph while visiting Reclamation’s public lands or facilities? We are looking for the official photo that will be featured on the America the Beautiful Federal Recreation Lands Pass for 2021. Plus, photography winners are also named in other categories including Historic, Adventure, Night Skies, Scenic, Wildlife and Fan Favorite.

Please consider submitting your photo entry to help “Share the Experience.” Let others see and appreciate all the incredible federal lands and adventures across the nation. Share the Experience gives amateur photographers the chance to showcase their skills by capturing the beauty of the nation’s public lands and waters.

To learn more about Reclamation’s recreational opportunities, please refer to Reclamation’s Recreation Overview. For recreational opportunities across all Federal lands throughout the United States, please visit Recreation.gov for maps and additional information.

Footnote: A recreation area can be considered a recreation complex consisting of, among other things, campgrounds, day use areas, parking areas, boat ramps, restrooms, road and trail systems, and visitor centers. It usually encompasses an entire reservoir area defined by an established boundary. A recreation area may have multiple recreation sites.
