The Cedar Mesa Campground is located approximately 35 miles south of Utah State Highway 24 on the Notom-Bullfrog Road and is at 5,500 feet in elevation. This primitive, no-fee campground has five sites, each with a picnic table and fire grate. There is also a pit toilet, but no water is available. The campground is open year-round, but visitors should check with the Capitol Reef Visitor Center for road conditions prior to planning an overnight stay. The 3.5-mile round-trip Red Canyon trail leads from the campground through Pinyon and Juniper trees into a large box canyon. No reservations; first-come, first-served.

Decent campground - pretty cramped though
Unlike Cathedral Valley CG which is pretty far off the beaten path and somewhat spacious, Cedar Mesa is both more easily accessible and much more compact. Plan on this campground likely being full or crowded. Scout it out first if you are pulling a trailer as opportunities to turn around are non-existent once you are in the campground.
