Overview

Overview

Nizhoni Campground sits in the Manti-LaSal National Forest in southeast Utah, at the foot of the Abajo Mountains.

Natural Features:

Towering Ponderosa pines forest the site, offering partial shade. Gambel oaks and sagebrush dot the landscape. The campground sits at an elevation of 7,000 feet, and summer temperatures range from 80-90 degrees during the day and 55-65 degrees at night.

Mule deer, wild turkeys, Abert's squirrels and the occasional black bear may be seen in the area.

Recreation:

Popular activities include hiking, wildlife viewing and off-road vehicle riding. Several trailheads are nearby, including Shay Ridge, Aspen Flat and Red Ledges.

The Abajo Loop State Scenic Backway passes by the campground. It leads from the desert floor and red rock canyons to steep mountains over 10,000 feet high, with overlooks and panoramic views. The byway is suitable for passenger vehicles from late spring through fall but is not recommended for large RVs.

Facilities:

The campground contains two large group sites that each accommodate up to 100 guests. Several single-family sites are available as well. Picnic tables and fire rings are provided, as are vault toilets and drinking water. Firewood may be collected in and around the campground. Roads and parking spurs are gravel.

Nearby Attractions:

Other attractions in the area include Canyonlands, Arches and Mesa Verde National Parks, Dark Canyon Wilderness, Edge of the Cedars State Park, Lake Powell and numerous archaeological sites.
