Virgin River Recreation Area | BLM, Arizona

This is a great little campground in the far northwest corner of Arizona, about halfway between Nevada and Utah.  Massive rock mountains surround the campground, and even though it feels like you're in a rock bowl, it is elevated from the riverbed far below.  Since there is water available and a clean restroom, as well as trash cans.  There is a small fee - $8 or $4 with a Senior Pass.  $90 per month if you feel like staying that long.


The drive on Interstate 15 in this area is awe inspiring.  The road was cut through the rock mountains years ago and is being widened in areas.  The mountains tower over as you're driving through, and there is no safe way to pull over to get photos!  I did manage to grab one photo while riding with a friend - please excuse the antenna!
