Dalton Springs Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"There’s a lot to be said for being first, and the Abajo Mountains (sometimes also called the Blue Mountains) have their own first to claim: they’re the first mountains in Utah to become snow-free after winter. While the rest of the state languishes under snowpack, Dalton Springs Campground quietly sheds its snow and typically offers some of the first high-mountain experiences for campers and hikers who’ve been itching with spring fever.

Located just west of the city of Monticello (less than 50 air miles from the border of Arizona) at an altitude of 8,400 feet, this small campground can open as early as the first week of May, according to 35 years of snowpack data. Compare that with late June or July for the alpine campgrounds in the northern part of the state, and you have a perfect destination for a spring when you’ve just been pining for a campground with pines."
