Located in the Maze District of Canyonlands National Park, Standing Rock campsite is one of the numerous sites administered by the Hans Flat Ranger Station. This campsite offers great views into the canyons of the Maze, the Chocolate Drops, Elaterite Butte, the La Sals, the Six Shooters, Lavender Butte, and over towards the Needles. It's a great place to piece together in your mind the various peaks, formations, and drainages that make up the greater Canyonlands area.

Note: Getting around Teapot canyon absolutely requires a high-clearance, low-gear, 4WD vehicle. Having a spotter is extremely helpful for tire placement. Road building could be necessary. Recovery gear should be on board.

* Motorcycles and trailers are considered a vehicle.
* Dogs are not allowed.

    From Hite:

    Turn left onto 95 for 2.1 miles. You'll cross the Colorado River and take a hard-right onto the first dirt road you come to. It's easy to drive past the dirt road. Take the dirt road (NP633). Continue on DP633 for a little less than 31 miles. Turn right onto NP756 for 16 miles. Turn left at sign for Standing Rock.
