"We traveled to Death Valley for the super bloom and discovered the only open camping was backcountry. The park ranger recommended the foothills of the Panamint Mountain range, where several dirt roads led up into its canyons.
From Badwater Road, we turned on West Side Road, a gravel drive bisecting the vast salt flats. After a few miles, we turned right up Trail Canyon, a 4WD only dirt road that we only felt confident driving in a Jeep.
All this effort was worth it for the solitude of camping alone in a wide-open canyon and the endless views of the valley below when we packed up camp."

It’s advised to hike within Yellow Aster Butte for unlimited breathtaking views of the Mt. Baker Wilderness.
The trails embedded within Uinta have several options for hiking with plenty of terrain to rest for the day or night.
Compact car camping means you can still sleep comfortably along with the gear you actually need, all while taking advantage of the great mileage to get to the best campspots around.
