Does anyone have any suggestions for a camping spot w/ a short hike in, in/around Zion or Escalante? My friend and I will be in the Utah area for the first time (SUPER EXCITED!) and are planning to do several trails at both Zion and Escalante. I've done a ton of research on the parks and the trails but I'm having trouble finding something with a short hike (maybe 5 mi each way max) and great camping spot that isn't a pre-designated campsite. This will be my friend's first time camping, so I'm trying to find something somewhat easy, but not too touristy. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated!
