The two accessible spots that had no cell signal were at about the following coordinates. Both of these are from memory using Google Maps so I might be off a little ways.

41.141323, -109.577755

41.060035, -109.600847



I may go exploring in the Jeep again this week. I think

41.068309, -109.552934 looks like a possibility but need to scout it out.

Looks like a nice spot! Hey can you tell me what waterbody that is? I will google "flaming gorge" in the mean time. I put a post on here about looking for places to boondock and a place to ride an atv.
Looking for some moderate warmth too. Not sure if where you're at is warm come Dec/jan/feb?what is the nearest town so i can research your area?

Glad to see someone taking a Class A off the black top and onto the dirt road!

It is the Green River, I'm not sure if it has any other name.

Yes, I responded to your thread yesterday with the places that I know ATV's are allowed down in NM and AZ. I'm not into that so am not much help. Sorry.

I am currently very near the very small town of Manila, UT. I'm pretty sure that it is NOT warm here in those months. You can probably get a good idea of temps with a site such as Climate - United States - Monthly averages

I can answer that one. I used to live in Vernal, UT for a couple of years, Rock Springs for a few years, and in Evanston for over 7 years. I had a boat and literally spent hundreds of nights on that lake camping out in the boat.

Winter is harsh and long. The only activities on that lake in Dec/Jan/Feb is ice fishing. We used to drive cars out to where we wanted to drill a hole. If you want to spend time there, you'd better get over there soon, or it's gonna be real wintery..!

Summers are great temperature wise, but it's only about 3-4 months where it's comfortable. Storms come blowing in off the mountains and can come upon you in a hurry. People in small boats are taking their lives into their own hands. I had a 25' cabin cruiser and sometimes had water washing over the bow if I got caught out and didn't get tied off someplace in time.

There's hardly anyplace on the Utah side to drive to the water. JFNM must have put into Sheep Creek Canyon, or driven clear down to the dam in order to find a camping spot close to the water. Otherwise, they are way above the lake. There is a nice Forest Svc campground on the east side if you cross the dam and go a few miles north. There's also a good Forest Svc CG at Lucerne Marina just north of Manila, UT on the west side.

I moved out of WY in the late 80's, so all my info is somewhat dated. I took my MH through there a couple of years ago, and not that much has changed. If anybody is headed east out of Vernal, UT they might enjoy the campground next to the Green River at the Dinosaur Natl Monument. Enjoy the beautiful drive through the Uinta Mtns heading south to Vernal, but be careful on the steep hills and curves!!

I'd be glad to answer any questions you may have on the area!

Ok thanks, ya thats the life i've lived for last 15 years so i know all about getting on a lake and getting blown off from a storm that rolled in outta nowhere.
Done lots of ice fishing and i love it but just want to have some sunshine this winter so i'll just keep heading south till i find it.

You will never be able to see the most beautiful part of this lake from a vehicle. For about 30 miles south of the Utah line, other than Sheep Creek Canyon, the only way to see it is from a boat. There are several boat-in campgrounds, and many places to just tie off, but no roads until you get down almost to the dam. This lake is simply one of my favorite places in the world...!!

We have a blow-up sailing kayak we like to meander in. Don't go far but it is fun.
