My friends and I are planning a trip down to Capitol Reef and Hanksville this weekend. I know there is tons of BLM land to camp on so we aren't worried about finding a place to pitch a tent but we'd love to find a spot that has a great view. If anybody has some suggestions please share.

Thanks!
 
The trick this weekend will be a spot you can still get in and out of after it gets dumped on. What kind of vehicles will you be in?
 
Burr Point is a nice spot. Just be careful of the roads if they're wet. And you may not have it to yourself on a holiday weekend.
