Manti-La Sal National Forest Camping
If you’re wondering what camping in the Manti-La Sal Mountains is like, close your eyes and imagine camping under a copse of fir and aspen trees, next to a pristine lake nestled in a colorful open meadow. The smell of crisp mountain air, the sounds of chattering birds, and the spotting of grazing deer indulge the senses. Now imagine, to get to that beautiful, happy place, you must take in sweeping aerial views of the red rock desert; canyons, spires and buttes that form some of the most exquisite landscapes on Earth. That’s camping in the La Sal Mountains.
