Encompassing over 40 acres in the heart of the 18 Road Mountain Bike Trail System, the North Fruita Desert Campground provides ample opportunity to bike all day directly from your campsite. There are 58 individual campsites, and each site contains a fire ring with a grate and a picnic table and has parking for two to four vehicles. Please remember campers must bring their own firewood and there is no electricity, shade shelter, or garbage pickup. The facilities are decent for such a remote location, and there are four vault toilets located within walking distance of each cluster of campsites. Dispersed camping is allowed outside of the mountain bike trail system, but it requires the use of a portable toilet system and portable fire pan.

If you’re in the mood for a scenic drive, the road that leaves the campground to the west will slowly climb it’s way up the backside of the Bookcliffs to provide magnificent views of your surroundings. Area activities include a shooting range, OHV open area, hiking, and mountain biking, making this a great destination for a weekend getaway.
