Freezing in Angel Creek Campground, Humboldt Wilderness

Yesterday the early wintery front with its freezing temperatures and high winds that has been pushing its way through northern Nevada and Utah continued to dump snow pellets–putting a little kink into our easy-living boondocking plans.

We decided to go ahead and hole up in Angel Creek Campground on Humboldt Wilderness land, off FR 231, 8 miles south of I-80 (MM 351). Elevation 6,800 feet.

Once again we were the only RVers there. We parked in a thicket of Aspens. This would have been a breath-taking site two weeks ago.

Temperatures dipped into the teens, high winds really put us into the deep freeze. Propane heater was worth its weight in gold. This spot closes for season on 10/31. Vaulted toilets, no water. $8 night, $4 Senior Pass. 18 tent/RV sites.

Heading toward Zion National Park–will stop somewhere along the way at an RV campground with hook-ups. Time for a long hot shower.

  • Tom:
    We were planning on traveling US 93, stopping at Cathedral Gorge State Park near Panaca, Nev.; however the weather was so dicy with snow and high winds predicted … that we opted for the safer route of I-80 to SLC then south on I-10. Now it has severe weather alerts on it through tonight. Interesting first couple of days.

  • You’re giving us all sorts of interesting places to look into! I’ve driven US93 between Lost Wages and Wells, NV, while traveling to/from Spokane, but never stopped along the way; we’ll have to look into that. Looks like y’all are really doing the boondocking thing, Bob Difley will be proud!
