Lone Rock Beach Campground
Lone Rock Beach Campground is a large primitive campsite located on the shores of Wahweap Bay and adjacent to Lone Rock, a large isolated redrock formation. It is accessible to vehicles—you can drive right onto the sand and set up camp on the beach or nearby sand dunes. It is “Primitive”, meaning no designated camping spots, but you’ll find toilets, outhouses, RV dump, cold showers, potable water in the camp area. Jet Ski’s, boats and personal watercraft can be operated and/or anchored conveniently at the beach. The beach is about an 8 mile drive from Wahweap marina, but about half the distance by water. Many people use this location on holidays / weekends, so plan accordingly (no reservations). Remember to bring a porta-potty if you’re camping more than 200 yards from the outhouses—the park service regularly patrols this site and you’ll face fines if you don’t obey this rule. We also recommend driving on already-established car paths, as many people will tell you about getting stuck in the soft sand! Click Here for a printable guide with images and maps.
