I-80 Camping

Hey guys,

We are putting on the middle fork on the 4th for 'Merica and want to break up the drive a bit. We were thinking of leaving the 2nd after work and trying to get as far as possible to make for a more relaxing pre launch day. Do you guys know of any primitive/ blm camping along the way on the wastelands of I-80? I tried to look at the WY BLM site but it is hard to tell what is what especially around green river (which I think may be as far as we get). Anywhere to sleep for a few hours without getting shot for being on private land in those parts. (also very cheap and don't want to spend any money)

Not I-80, but off the US-30 shortcut.

When I guided we always launched on the 4th. The best thing ever to celebrate being a free 'Merican.

Dry and hot coming up and the rangers are quite serious about no fireworks out there. That has not always been heeded in the past, but should be. Not that you would.

Not totally sure the land ownership, and farther than it sounds like you're aiming, but exit 191 in Utah headed south of the highway gets a little bit up and away and has been my bed more than once. is offline   Reply With Quote
