I'm just a few days away from a trip to the Paria Canyon/GSENM region, and was wondering if anyone knows of any decent primitive spots to camp along Skutumpah Road. We'll be camping at Stateline campground the first couple nights, but then we want to move further north for the next couple nights. The campground at Kodachrome is a possibility, but I'd like to know if we have other options in the area. It's always good to have more than one option. The north end of Cottonwood Road would work, too, but I hear it's impassable about half way through. I know it's at least passable to the Cottonwood Narrows, so info on sites in that area would work, too. Thanks in advance!

I know of one really good campsite on Cottonwood Road, just north of the Cottonwood Narrows. I can hook you up with map/coords if you'd like. As far as Skutumpah, I have only driven it as far as Bull Valley Gorge. There was at least one or two mediocre spots and a spur road that I think led to some but I don't think any of them are all that good as far as quality campsites go. The landscape in the section just isn't very rocky or spectacular.

If you can send me the info on the Cottonwood Narrows site, I'd really appreciate it. We'll be driving northeast from Kanab on Skutumpah Friday evening. We're probably going to try for a site at Kodachrome, but since we'll be arriving on a Friday night and I don't know how busy they get this time of year, I'd like to have a backup site. Thanks for your help!
