William’s Bottom Campground is located off Utah Scenic Byway 279, just across the road from the Colorado River. This area is very popular with rock climbers, with a plethora of routes up the high red rock cliffs that overhang the highway. You’ll likely see climbers here on your drive in. In addition there are several hiking trails and 4x4 roads just down the highway from the campground.

The campground itself contains 17 different sites. The campsites are suitable for everyone from tent campers to those with midsize trailers and RVs. While the Colorado River isn’t visible from the campground, it is located just across the road. High red rock cliffs butt up against the campsites and there are a fair amount of trees to provide shade during the area’s hot summers.

Aside from vault toilets and a dumpster there are no amenities, hookups or water available at William’s Bottom. All sites are first come, first serve with no reservations.
