Nearby attractions

South Willow Canyon Road is a very scenic drive in the Tooele County, in western Utah, USA. The road is mostly paved but becomes gravel at the National Forest boundary and winds through some very interesting narrows, but any vehicle should be able to make it.  The road is 7.1 miles long. The last 4 miles are unpaved. It’s noted for its fantastic wildlife. Along the road there are five forest service campgrounds. Snow can usually be found on the upper part of the trail from November to the middle of June. The road is pretty steep and narrow. Although the South Willow Canyon road is paved, it is pitted with chuckholes and is not recommended for trailer use. The road ends at an elevation of 7,470ft (2.276m) above the sea level, at the beginning of the Deseret Peak Trail.

Natural feaures

The remote desert canyon is forested with oak, maple and juniper trees, which offer partial shade. Willow Creek flows through the site.

Recreation

The multi-use Stansbury Front Trail and Medina Flat Trail begin across the road from the entrance, offering access to the rugged Deseret Peak Wilderness. Willow Creek offers rainbow and brown trout fishing.

The smallest and nimblest of fully enclosed RVs. Drives like a van. Loves posing for Instagram.

Class B

A formal-sounding name for camper van, but just as photogenic.

Class A

Drivers should be comfortable driving bus-sized vehicles and dealing with parking limitations. Great for delivery.

Truck Camper

If you can drive a truck, you can drive a truck camper. Makes roughing it significantly less rough.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
