Point Supreme Campground, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Cedar City, Utah

Point Supreme is the only campground inside the monument boundary, and you will find very few campgrounds immediately outside the park. This lesser known entity of the National Park system is a delightful summer destination. With only 25 sites to choose from, this quiet campground has stunning meadow views. The landform feature of the park, the cedar breaks, are not visible from camp, but are accessible via a half mile hike. Once you reach the rim of what will remind you of Bryce Canyon, you will have a couple of trails options to choose from. At an elevation of over 10,000 feet and with steep drop offs that aren't railed, I would be very cautious about bringing small children here. Several viewing point pull outs on the main road through the park are a safer place for children to view the canyon and its fantastic arches, fins and hoodoos. Back at camp, you will find a primitive campground with nicely maintained sites. Interior roads are paved while site pads are gravel amd fairly level. Many sites are pull thru and all perimeter sites have excellent meadow views. Most sites have a designated tent pad, while all sites have a fire pit and picnic table. You will find potable water here, but it cannot be used for filling freshwater tanks. There are restrooms and showers. Sites 7-19 we felt were the best as they had some tall spruce trees to provide shade and privacy, although Sites 8, 11 and 15 were awfully close together (whoch could be a great thing if camping with family/friends. Sites 1-3 were very exposed and not as scenic with views of electrical wires overhead. This campground is only open mid May to mid September. For thise traveling to the other well known"Mighty Five" National Parks of Utah, Cedar Breaks is a great stopping point only a couple of hours from Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, and Grand Staircase-Escalante.
