The High Spur campsite is located northeast of the Hans Flat Ranger station in the Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Situated at the end of a spur road off of an infrequently traveled dirt road, it affords complete solitude. Views to the immediate east are of Millard Canyon and, in the far distance, is the Islands in the Sky District of Canyonlands National Park. North of the campsite are some interesting geological features. High Spur is a desirable campsite for folks wanting to hike into Horseshoe Canyon from the east.
