Driving towards home I reached Tooele, Utah at 2:00 in the afternoon – too early to stop for the day. It was a pleasant warm 75 degree. When talking to my mother earlier that day, she advised me to stay as long as I could in Utah. Stay, she strongly advised. Seattle had been having terrible weather that would result in a rainfall record for October. I stopped driving home and found a county campground at Tooele that I turned into following my mother’s advice. This would be my last day of the fall season for me, after that it would be winter when I get home.
And it was warm. At 9:00 pm I still had the trailer door open. At 8:00 am when I left the next morning it was 69 degrees.
- I saw no signs pointing the way to the campground. At the south end of town turn SE off of Highway 36 onto Settlement Canyon Road. After about a mile, the road turns into the park entrance.
- $15 for dry camping. You drive the canyon road and pull off at any place that looks good. No restrooms or garbage collection.
- There are sites with full utilities.
- It was a nice adequate site to stop for the night.
