Hole-In-The-Rock BLM boondocking spot, Escalante, Utah.

This is easily accessible by any size rig, I would have no hesitation bringing our 40′ Class A in here to the first few open areas.
The road and camping area will probably get mushy and maybe impassable during rain, it was cold and snowing when we stayed so this was not an issue.

There are small junipers and scrub trees, but no real shade. These scrubby trees also provide very little protection from the wind that blows through here. We were here over Christmas 2021 and there were 50mph winds rocking our little camper.

I would expect plenty of ATV/off-road traffic utilizes this area during the summer, so don’t plan on peacefulness unless you’re off-season.

Lots of rock fire rings spread throughout.

There are additional spots for smaller rigs further down Hole-In-The-Rock road, which is a very nicely graded gravel road for quite some distance headed southeast, until it gradually degrades into the usual Utah red clay road. We had no issues taking our AWD small SUV all the way down to the Peek-A-Boo and Spooky slot canyons, but I would not have dragged the trailer down there.

3 bars Verizon 4G, 50mpbs throughput.

Great spot for camping when there’s nobody else.
