There are several nice forest service camp grounds outside of Monticello on Harts Draw Road which provided a perfect place to park for the night. We were directly across from Dalton Campground. Harts Draw Road continues on to the Needles District of Canyon Lands and we took a quick drive to Newspaper Rock which is actually a State Park. We ended parking in a staging area which large enough to accommodate the Beaver. While setting up, some locals stopped by and we started up a conversation with them. They said the area was under utilized and basically only used by locals. Shh. I won't tell anybody.
