Going to Glacier, need camp spots along the way. on 05/07/2012 23:52:19 MDT Print View

I secured a permit for Glacier National Park in late Aug. There will be 4 of us going. We will be driving from central California and stopping about half way, or a little more. I need help finding a nice place to camp for the night in Northern Utah, not to far off the Hwy, probably a little farther north of Logan Utah. Any suggestions? We could also stay in a cheap motel, or a hostel, if they have anything like that there, but camping would be our 1st choice.

Thanks in advance, Jack

I can't help you out Jack other than to say that Logan is a super cool town. And the drive from there to Jackson is really nice.

Oh yeah, and whatever you do, don't stop in Winnemucca!

Oh, come on Dave, you're hurt"in my feelings, I own property in Winnemucca. I plan to build a desert cabin there in a few years. It's 37 miles north west of town, out in the middle of exactly no where! But hey, no niehbors, or city congestion, just me and the wide open space.

Spring Hollow Campground just past Logan. It's easy in and out off Hwy 89. Another is Dewitt Campground a little further down the road.

Hey Jack, Is your property out in the Unionville area south of Imlay? If so, don't tell anybody, but it is pretty nice out there. Nice little desert oasis.

Robert, you take Jungo Hwy out of town, it's about 5 miles of asphalt road now, "YEAH", then it turns into a dirt Hwy "BOOO" for another 25 miles, then you drive 7 miles cross country literally, no real roads to speek of, just ranchers tending to cattle, sage brush, antelope and cows.

Yeah, but 37 miles outside Winnemucca is still not IN Winnemucca!

Oos, I was thinking of Wells....worst motel ever...
