St. George, UTAH,

I'm on my way to Vegas to see my family off, want to do a tent over nighter in the St. George area. I'll be there come May 4th and 5th, evenings, don't feel like staying in vegas.

Where's a good spot to put my tent up??

Not exactly St George but Panguitch has a KOA. The Green River area has some low cost motels. At least they used to be about 20 Bucks.

St George is southern Utah, about 110 miles north of Las Vegas on hwy15. I booked 2 nights at Quail creek state park.
Thanks for the link Downs

notacop - panguitch is a bit too far north for me this trip, I want to be close to las vegas, yet far enough away, (personal:mrgreen

Is Quail Creek the one about 8 miles north of St George? That's a nice area!

I've found that tent camping is more fun and habitable if you pitch it in a hotel room in Vegas, especially above the 25th floor... Push the beds together by the window and you can put up a two man tent, and still see out the window and pretend you are on a cliff overlooking a bunch of grounded UFOs! Order room service and have them bring it right to the tent door... If you "camp nude" then you might end up on YouTube from one of the peeping toms in the hotel across the way... enjoy...

Try Nevada?

When I pass thru that area I like to camp at Kershaw-Ryan SP just south of Caliente, NV. Probably too far for you but was built in 2009. I got there right after it opened by chance in 09 had the first fire in one of the pits.
