Rooftop Car Camping Tours

Take a look at our most popular tours:

Arches & Moab Tour

This tour includes camping around Moab, Utah, and visiting Arches National park, Canyonlands National Park, Dead Horse Point State Park, and Goblin Valley State Park.
There are hikes to spectacular red rock formations, Jeep trails to stunning vistas, and even white water rafting on the Colorado River.

Starting at 5 days for $3,000

Pickup is in Salt Lake City near the SLC International Airport. Every tour will have reserved campsites each night included, as well as suggested first-come-first-serve campsites along the way.

This tour is the biggest bang-for-your-buck tour! A three-hour drive from the pickup at Salt Lake City, Arches National Park and Moab provide year’s worth of travel in just days. We’re packing in sight seeing spectacular rock formations, hiking amidst geological wonders, swimming holes, white water rafting, cliff-side jeep trails, and camping under the best star gazing in the world.

You will be awed!

Moab sits at 4,000 feet elevation, and some of the spots you will visit (Dead Horse Point) rise to 6,000 feet. Due to rapid elevation gain you may experience shortness of breath. This tour includes many outdoor activities, mainly hiking, but mountain biking is also available. There are hikes along steep cliffs so people suffering from vertigo should be warned. In the spring and fall the days can be very warm and the nights very cold. In mid summer it will be very hot, with temperatures rising to over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Dress appropriately and always bring lots of water with you.

This is a camping vacation, one that will result in life-long memories of family fun. But, that comes without the amenities of a hotel. There is a shower tent included, but it will the water you brought with you. Remember, when you sign up for a week of car camping around Moab, Arches, and the Canyonlands you’re signing up for an adventure.

Included in the tour are reserved campsites and park fees for specific days of the tour. They’re part of the price. However, all guests are permitted, encouraged even, to seek out first-come-first-serve campsites on BLM land. We will provide a list of our favorite alternatives, but you will have always have a reserved campsite to fall back on.

For camping there are extra options to increase your comfort and enjoyment. You can get a full annex room if you’re worried about the weather or mosquitos. There are bike racks, hammocks, and even additional ground tents available to rent for larger parties.

Depending on the activities you’re interested in we will adjust the itinerary. Cyclists we will include more biking trails, seasoned hikers or advanced athletes looking for a challenge we’ll include more difficult trails, and to beat the summer heat if you want more days of white water rafting we can include that as well.

Extended trip length is also available. All of these options will result in a price change.

Pickup at our office location in Salt Lake City near the Salt Lake International Airport. Go over gear usage, safety tips, and trip itinerary breakdown. Then, drive to supermarket to pick up food order (first one is prepared by us).

Drive to Moab, Utah. A three hour drive takes you through multiple landscapes: highways with Wasatch mountains looming overhead, steep forested canyons, wide open high plains, and finally the deep red cliffs around Moab.

The first stop of the day will be at Dead Horse Point State Park, just before you arrive at Moab. This incredible viewpoint will give you a teaser of what is to come as you stare over Moab and the Canyonlands from thousand-foot high cliffs. It is a terrific place to catch the sunset and if you want to drive back up at night, perfect for star gazing.

Now that you’ve looked down into the Canyonlands, its time to get a little closer. After Dead Horse Point drive down to the Island in the Sky for two short hikes in the afternoon to warm you up. We recommend eating some lunch before setting out.

First, a hike to Mesa Arch, and then a hike to Grand View Point. Each only take about an hour and are perfect to get you excited for all the incredible views coming your way.

Head to your reserved campsite for the night and enjoy your first night of roof top car camping!

Rise early and get moving! The lines at the park entrance can get long on weekends and in peak season. But, even more importantly, breakfast and coffee with the sunrise amidst the red rock is a special experience. Enjoy it.

The first morning will be aimed at hitting the big sights. You will drive through the amazing, prehistoric landscape of cliffs, spires, and red rocks. The first stop will be at Balancing Rock, the most spectacular road-side attraction.

Then, onto the Delicate Arch, the crown jewel of Arches. We recommend making this hike early in the morning because 1) it gets hot in the afternoon and there is no shade, and 2) the crowds get larger later in the day.

After lunch (pack it in your cooler or zip over to Moab) you can do the relatively easy Windows Loop and Landscape Arch Hikes. If you still have some energy and daylight you can continue on from Landscape Arch to Double O arch. That is a moderately difficult hike with some steep ascents.

If its too hot in the afternoon we recommend escaping to Moab for the Millcreek swimming hole or the shady and swimmable Grandstaff Canyon.

Then back to the campsite for some dinner and s’mores over the fire.

If you included the Fiery Furnace Guided Tour as one of the extras to this tour then this is when you’d do that tour. This is a longer, more strenuous hike, but it takes you through the red mazes of sandstone fins. Amazing.

There are other hikes we recommend this morning, including Park Avenue and Tower Arch. It also depends on how much energy you have left.

After lunch when the day heats up you can repeat the swimming holes, continue hiking, or drive some dirt Jeep roads through the back country of Arches National Park. The park is not that big so the drive will only take a few hours. But you get to see areas of the park that the masses never get.

Alternative hikes: Needles District in the Canyonlands. If you’re sick of the crowds of Arches and want to get further away then refer to your maps and go explore a series of beautiful and secluded trails.

Extra activities today include: Slick Rock Trail biking, white water rafting, guided rock climbing, jeep trail driving.

After three days of walking in the desert and your body will feel a toll, especially in the hot summer sun. Included in this tour is one day of white-water rafting on the Colorado River. A well-earned break from all the exploring you will get to float down the river on a guided tour past the amazing cliffs that you were just walking across.

In the afternoon go to the bbq spot along the river to cook outside and swim. Swimming in the Colorado River should always be done with a life jacket due to strong currents and undertows. There are some calm beaches but even then always wear a life jacket.

To finish the day we have several Jeep Trail recommendations to enjoy, including the Long Mill Road and the Potash Road, among others.

In colder weather we have other Jeep trails we recommend driving, hiking trails, and more outdoor BBQ spots to relax with family.

The final morning pack up your campsite and get ready for a final adventure on the road back to Salt Lake. We recommend the Peace Tree Juice Cafe in Moab for a delicious breakfast.

Then hop in the Jeep and head to Goblin Valley State Park, about an hour and a half from Moab.

Here enjoy the bizarre beauty of the Hoodoos, stone formations carved by the wind to look like mushrooms! You’ll feel like you’re on Mars! Its a beautiful valley, so take your time and take lots of photos. Then its back to Salt Lake City.

We recommend refueling and eating in Green River or Price before returning to our Salt Lake City location for the evening camper inspection and return.

The Great North Tour

This tour includes camping around Jackson Hole Wyoming,  Yellowstone, and Glacier National Park. Some of the most beautiful landscapes in the entire United States!
There are BLM Jeep Trails to take you to spectacular vistas, campsites with stunning mountain views, hiking and biking trails, fly fishing and white water rafting, and more!

Starting at 5 days for $3,250

Pickup is in Salt Lake City near the SLC International Airport. Every tour will have reserved campsites each night included, as well as suggested first-come-first-serve campsites along the way.

The tour begins in Salt Lake City and will take you to some of the most beautiful country in the entire United States. You will drive through grasslands filled with Bison herds, camp beside pristine mountain lakes, hike amongst the beautiful Grand Tetons, and watch geothermal geysers fire steaming water into the sky. Its pretty overwhelming.

That said, there are enough activities and sights to fill up years of summer vacations. So one week will just get you a taste of what this country is all about.

You will be traveling through some high elevation areas. Salt Lake City (the starting point) sits at 4,500 feet, and Jackson Hole is at 6,200, and Old Faithful Geyser is over 7,000 feet. Then if you hike above into the mountains and drive through the passes you’ll be going even higher. Due to rapid elevation gain you may experience shortness of breath. This tour includes many outdoor activities, mainly hiking, but mountain biking is also available. There are hikes along steep cliffs so people suffering from vertigo should be warned. In the spring and fall the days can be very warm and the nights very cold. In mid summer it will be very hot, with temperatures rising to over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Dress appropriately and always bring lots of water with you.

Also, in the spring and fall there may be snow in the mountain passes. Some roads may be closed and you may have to alter your route.

You will see lots of large wildlife on this tour, including bison, elk, and even bears. Many people take picture of these beautiful and majestic animals, but be warned that they are wild, powerful, and dangerous creatures. If you do take pictures do so from a safe distance and never approach a wild animal, no matter how cute or calm they may appear.

This is a camping vacation, one that will result in life-long memories of family fun. But, that comes without the amenities of a hotel. There is a shower tent included, but it will the water you brought with you. Remember, when you sign up for a week of car camping around Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks you’re signing up for an adventure.

Included in the tour are reserved campsites and park fees for specific days of the tour. They’re part of the price. However, all guests are permitted, encouraged even, to seek out first-come-first-serve campsites on BLM land.

Depending on the activities you’re interested in we will adjust the itinerary. Cyclists we will include more biking trails, seasoned hikers or advanced athletes looking for a challenge we’ll include more difficult trails, and even Jeep trails for our off road enthusiasts. To beat the summer heat if there are white water rafting, river float trips, and fly fishing. In Yellowstone National Park you can also book horseback riding tours.

Extended trip length is also available.

All of these options will result in a price change.

Pickup at our office location in Salt Lake City near the Salt Lake International Airport. Go over gear usage, safety tips, and trip itinerary breakdown. Then, drive to supermarket to pick up food order (first one is prepared by us).

Then drive north towards Grand Teton National Park. If the weather is not too hot, we recommend stopping at Lava Hot Springs on the way to enjoy a natural, outdoor hot pool, and get ready for the geothermal experience you will find in Yellowstone. There are many hot springs to see in this area.

Afterwards continue the drive to Grand Teton National Park and your reserved campground. You can also stop in Jackson Hole on the way to eat in a restaurant or see the world famous Cowboy Bar, and the Elk Antler Archways in town.

The views are spectacular and in the summer you can swim and fish in Jackson Lake as you marvel at the amazing Grand Teton mountains.

For cooler weather you can rent canoes and kayaks and take them out on the lake. A great place to relax after such a long trip.

Depending on your interests there are plethora of activities to do in this beautiful park. With a family and children you can fish and play in the lake in the warm months. There are miles and miles of lake to explore if you want to rent a kayak or paddle board and take in the views all day.

If you want to get out into the park there are several hikes we recommend: the Leigh Lake Hike and Hidden Falls Hikes. They are only a few hours in and out and deliver you to beautiful alpine lakes and streams. For something more challenging there is the Cascade Canyon Trail & Solitude Lake. This is easily a half day hike, but the views are incredible.

Mountain bikers to drive up the pass beside Jackson Hole and descend into the valley from above the tree line. History and photography buffs will enjoy visiting the TA Moulton Barn for world famous photos. Or, you can take a scenic drive along the Snake River and even take the tram up the ski resort for the best views of the area. Your heart will ache at the views.

Rise and shine on the morning of Day 3 and get excited to explore Yellowstone. Its an otherworldly experience, mixing the beauty of high alpine meadows with the bizarre geothermal pools and geysers. Day 3 will be focused on exploring these natural wonders.

You’ll drive to Yellowstone National Park from Grand Teton via the John D Rockefeller Memorial Parkway. Plan on taking your time because there will surely be photo ops with the many bison and elk that line the highway. They’re huge, beautiful creatures. Take some pictures, but please keep your distance.

Then you’ll spend the rest of the morning waiting and watching for the Old Faithful and Steamboat Geysers to erupt and send steam fountains into the air.

After lunch you will explore more of the Yellowstone Caldera. There are hot spring pools dotting the valley that stand out against the brown grasses and green trees with bright blues and yellows. See them all by hiking the Fairy Falls Trail.

If there’s any more time in the day you can visit the Bear and Wolf Discovery Center and see the massive predators live and up close! They transferred nuisance bears to this facility and you will marvel at their size and curiosity and learn all about their behaviors and life style. If you run out of time definitely make time the next day.

After looking at the geysers and hot pools its time for some more exploring. Today will be focused on canyons, waterfalls, and enjoying walking around in the spectacular nature.

Start the day by visiting Hayden Valley and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. You can take a short hike down the Uncle Tom’s Trail to stand at the base of a roaring waterfall. There are other waterfalls to see, including the Upper Yellowstone Falls and the Tower Falls. There are short hikes out to other cliff-side views and falls.

For people wanting a larger hike we recommend the Mount Washburn Trail. You’ll be hiking amongst the clouds of Yellowstone.

During peak season the park can be very crowded. To escape all the people we have trails and sights further out in the Bridger-Teton and Shoshone National Forests.

For your final morning wake up early and head back down to Jackson Hole where you’ll have a guided raft float tour on the Snake River. It will take the rest of the morning and you’ll be looking at the Grand Tetons, and eagles and other birds in the trees. If you’re good at fishing you can sign up to fish and try and snag a rainbow trout.

Then, catch some lunch in Jackson Hole, and then head back down to Salt Lake City for vehicle return and gear inspection.

The Majestic South

This tour includes camping around Zion, Bryce Canyon, and Grand Staircase Escalante National Parks, as well as visiting Lake Powell.
There are hikes to spectacular red rock formations, Jeep trails to stunning vistas, hiking in slot canyons, and enjoying some time out of the sun in Lake Powell.

Starting at 6 days for $3,500

Pickup is in Salt Lake City near the SLC International Airport. Every tour will have reserved campsites each night included, as well as suggested first-come-first-serve campsites along the way.

This tour will take you to some of the most beautiful country in the entire United States. You will drive through narrow canyons in Capitol Reef, hike through even narrower wind-carved slot canyons in Grand Staircase Escalante, look out over cliffs and rock spires at Bryce Canyon and Cedar Breaks National Monument, and look out over the edge of thousand foot drops in Zion National Park! Plus there will be camping beside amazing desert oasis’s like Sand Hollow Reservoir. All to the backdrop of dark red sand stone going on for miles and miles. You’ll see some of the best sights in the world in one week!

That said, there are enough activities and sights to fill up years of vacations. So one week will just get you a taste of what this country is all about.

You will be traveling through some high elevation areas. Salt Lake City (the starting point) sits at 4,500 feet, Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park is at 7000 feet, and Bryce Canyon and Cedar Break Monuments are near 10,000 feet in elevation . Then if you hike above into the mountains and drive through the passes you’ll be going even higher. Due to rapid elevation gain you may experience shortness of breath. This tour includes many outdoor activities, mainly hiking, but mountain biking is also available. There are hikes along steep cliffs and inside narrow slot canyons, so people suffering from vertigo or claustrophobia should be warned. In the spring and fall the days can be very warm and the nights very cold. In mid summer it will be very hot, with temperatures rising to over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Dress appropriately and always bring lots of water and sunscreen with you.

Also, in the spring and fall there may be snow in the mountain passes. Some roads may be closed and you may have to alter your route. Some of the desert roads we recommend will closed if there is a recent rain, and some of the slot canyons can be very dangerous if there is sudden rain. Watch the weather and the park ranger warnings.

You will be hiking in the desert so you may see rattlesnakes and scorpions. They usually avoid people, but take care when hiking off trail because they are poisonous and dangerous.

This is a camping vacation, one that will result in life-long memories of family fun. But, that comes without the amenities of a hotel. There is a shower tent included, but it will the water you brought with you. Remember, when you sign up for a week of car camping in Capitol Reef, Grand Staircase, Bryce Canyon, and Zion National Parks you’re signing up for an adventure.

To beat the summer heat if there are white water rafting, river float trips, and fly fishing. In some of the parks there are even rock climbing and canyoneering tours.

Extended trip length is also available.

All of these options will result in a price change.

Pickup your Roof Top Camper at our office location in Salt Lake City near the Salt Lake International Airport. Go over gear usage, safety tips, and trip itinerary breakdown. Then, drive to supermarket to pick up food order (first one is prepared by us).

Then drive south towards Capitol Reef National Park. This drive will take you through the towering Wasatch Mountains, the high plains of central Utah, and down to the red rock country around Capitol Reef.

Arriving in the park the landscape itself will awe you, and prepare you for the rest of the week. You will see some of the most beautiful natural wonders anywhere on earth.

We’ll start the trip by taking the scenic drive up the Grand Wash, and then a quick hike out to Cassidy Arch. After lunch (you can eat at a picnic station or drive back to Torrey for restaurants) you can go see Capitol Dome, and then its time to head further south for more exploring.

In the afternoon you’ll hike out on the Hickman Bridge Trail to see an amazing arch, and then head back to the campsite for your first night under the stars in red rock country.

For more challenging hikes we recommend the Navajo Knobs trail.

Grand Staircase Escalante National Park is south of Capitol Reef, and it is massive! It covers an area of over 4,000 square kilometers. There is so much to see and explore here you could stay for weeks. So we’ll send you to some of the best spots.

Today is all about scenic drives and slot canyons! If you’re not excited about such narrow, confined spaces, you can take the Coyote Gulch hike, a long challenge that ends with an arch over a natural pool.

We’ll start the day driving the Hole-In-The-Rock Road. Remember, if there have been recent rains this road will be impassable. Check with the park rangers.

Along this road you’ll enjoy some spectacular Slot Canyons, such as Zebra Slot, Tunnel Slot, Spooky Canyon, and Peekaboo Canyon. You can spend the entire day exploring these amazing, narrow tunnels.

If you want to explore a little more than check out Devil’s Garden. You’ll be far from any towns so make sure to pack some food for lunch while you’re out there.

In the afternoon you’ll take a drive down the Cottonwood Road, take in the sights of the central park, and end at Big Water Dinosaur Center. A great place for kids and dinosaur enthusiasts. Also, nearby are the campgrounds along Lake Powell, so you can cool off in the evening in the water.

An alternative water area is camping at the Escalante Petrified Forest at Wide Hollow Reservoir. Also, if the weather is really hot, you can do the Lower Calf Creek Falls for a hike and swim.

After two days of walking in the heat of Capitol Reef and Grand Staircase Escalante, today will be less intensive and more about taking in some beautiful scenery. Take a longer drive up to Bryce Canyon National Park.

At Bryce you can marvel at the incredible stone spires that fill the canyon like tectonic splinters. There are even short hikes in amongst the spires if you want to drive down into the park and stretch your legs. Lots of photo opportunities here! Also a great lunch spot after enjoying a morning walk.

Cedar Breaks is a thirty minute drive beyond Bryce. High up in the rocky mountains above Cedar City you get another mind-bending view! This time of an entire mountain range seemingly split wide open. Green, tree-covered peaks surround red rock cliffs and spires. Pure majesty!

In the afternoon, when the photos are finished, head south to Zion National Park. To get a taste of what is to come we’ll send you up the short and family friendly Canyon Overlook Trail. From there you get an incredible view of the central valley of the park and the territory you’ll be exposed to over the following few days.

Then head to your reserved campsite and enjoy a nice break and some star gazing if its a clear night.

Zion National Park is an incredible stretch of land. There are too many options to do in a summer, let alone two days. There are easy areas to explore, and challenging courses as well. This is the day if you added an extra rock climbing or canyoneering course when you’d tackle that adventure.

Easy: Start with the Riverside Walk and then on to the Narrows. This could take your morning, or the entire day. You get to walk along and in the river! You’ll need water shoes for this hike to protect your feet. But it is refreshing on a hot day.

Moderate: Angel’s Landing. If you have a fear of heights we recommend avoiding this trail. If you’re going to tackle this one we recommend doing it very early in the morning because during peak season the lines of hikers can get long going up the switchbacks. This is a half day hike and there is a lot of climbing so bring a lot of water and expect a challenging trail. But, those who do are rewarded with incredible cliff-top views of the canyon and park. Then, in the afternoon you can take the easy trail to the Narrows to cool your feet.

Another long hike option is the Subway From-The-Bottom Trail. This is a half to full-day trail that will lead you deep into a canyon, past waterfalls, into a tube-like canyon that is cool and great for photos. You hike in and then hike back out. For a very technical canyoneering trail, you can also choose to hike the Subway Top-Down Trail. This one involves rock climbing and swimming. If you don’t have the proper gear then avoid this trail.

The morning of Day 5 you can hit some of the trails you missed from the day before, like Angels Landing or The Subway. If you were able to check everything off your list then we recommend the Observation Point Trail. This will take you up the far side of the canyon from Angel’s Landing, but reward you with an even greater view!

Definitely start the day early, bring snacks and lots of water. This is a very strenuous hike.

When the hike is finished, eat your lunch and hop in the Jeep to go relax for the final evening at Sand Hollow State Park. This a great campsite at one of the best reservoirs in the state. In the summer the water is very warm and calm, with red sand beaches. Its a great place for little kids to play in the sand safely.

Enjoy your last morning of the trip with a swim in Sand Hollow and breakfast beside the peaceful lake.

The drive back to Salt Lake City takes about six hours so you’ll want to leave by Lunch Time.

If you leave early, especially in the spring and fall season, we recommend stopping halfway in the small town of Meadow to enjoy the hot spring pond just outside the town.

Afterwards zip back up to our Salt Lake City office to return the vehicle and have the equipment inspection.

Fly Fishing Tour

This tour not only takes you to beautiful locations, but guides you to some of the best fishing spots in the mountain west. You’ll start in Utah and work your way up to the Snake River in Wyoming where you’ll finish with a guided tour near Jackson Hole.
Besides fishing there are BLM Jeep Trails to take you to spectacular vistas, campsites with stunning mountain views, and hiking and biking trails.

Starting at 5 days for $3,500

Pickup is in Salt Lake City near the SLC International Airport. Every tour will have reserved campsites each night included, as well as suggested first-come-first-serve campsites along the way.

This tour will take you to some of the best trout fishing spots in the USA. Not just for the quality of the fish, but for the incredible locations that you’ll see along the way. You’ll be fishing from the Snake River beneath the towering Grand Teton Mountains, to Flaming Gorge with its red rock canyon walls, to the Mirror Lake and the Upper Provo, Uinta and Wasatch mountain getaways. Fishing meets adventure on this tour.

That said, you can fish in the Rocky Mountain rivers for a lifetime. So one week will just get you a taste of what this country is all about.

You will be traveling through some high elevation areas. Salt Lake City (the starting point) sits at 4,500 feet, Jackson Hole at just over 6,000 feet, and Mirror Lake at 8,000 feet. Then if you hike above into the mountains and drive through the passes you’ll be going even higher. Due to rapid elevation gain you may experience shortness of breath.

This tour includes many outdoor activities, mainly fishing. Even in the summer time mountain streams can be very cold, so proper gear is required for safe fishing. There is also hiking recommendations so proper hiking equipment is recommended.

In the spring and fall the days can be very warm and the nights very cold. In mid summer it will be very hot, with temperatures rising to over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Dress appropriately and always bring lots of water and sunscreen with you.

Also, in the spring and fall there may be snow in the mountain passes. Some roads may be closed and you may have to alter your route. Some rivers may be unsuitable for fishing due to high water.

Many of these fishing spots are in wild country, and you may see bear, moose, elk, deer, and even bison. Remember these are large and even dangerous creatures so please do not try and approach them for close-up photos.

This is a camping vacation, one that will result in life-long memories of family fun. But, that comes without the amenities of a hotel. There is a shower tent included, but it will the water you brought with you. Remember, when you sign up for a week of car camping and fly fishing you’re signing up for an adventure.

Included in the tour are reserved campsites and park fees for specific days of the tour. They’re part of the price. However, all guests are permitted, encouraged even, to seek out first-come-first-serve campsites on BLM land. We will provide a list of our favorite alternatives, but you will have always have a reserved campsite to fall back on.

For camping there are extra options to increase your comfort and enjoyment. You can get a full annex room if you’re worried about the weather or mosquitos. There are bike racks, hammocks, and even additional ground tents available to rent for larger parties.

Included in this tour is one day fishing guide. If you want more guided fishing tours we can add as many as you want.

Extended trip length is also available.

All of these options will result in a price change.

Pickup your Roof Top Camper at our office location in Salt Lake City near the Salt Lake International Airport. Go over gear usage, safety tips, and trip itinerary breakdown. Then, drive to supermarket to pick up food order (first one is prepared by us).

Then drive north towards Jackson Hole, Wyoming. You will leave the Wasatch Mountain region, drive through the grasslands of southern Idaho, and then enter the Grand Teton country home to mountain lakes and rivers.

The first afternoon you’ll have a guided fishing tour on the Snake River. Seasoned and new fishermen will benefit from the professional tips on the which flies to use and where to cast. Prepare to catch some beautiful rainbow trout.

That evening head to your campsite near the Snake River and feast on some fresh river trout. Get ready for more days to come. Now, as all fishermen now, fish where they’re biting. That’s the them of this trip. We’re sending you to some of the best spots, if you’re not having any luck, move on. But if you’re catching fish then keep on casting!

If you upgraded to more guided tours then you’re back at it again in the morning with a professional guide.

Otherwise try your own luck at our recommended fishing holes. Also, pay attention to the tips from the guides on Day 1, they’ll know where all the fish are biting, and hopefully you’ll pull in some beautiful rainbow trout.

For non fly fishermen, head over to Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park and fish from the shore. There are dozens of river and lake fishing spots to choose from so good luck.

Stock up on food in Jackson Hole, and eat lunch beside the river. A full day fishing on a river is a blessing, and a full week is almost too much to handle! Savor those casts because the days go by fast!

Again, if you’re catching fish keep on casting. But if you want a change of scenery head south a few hours to the beautiful Flaming Gorge, a reservoir on the Utah-Wyoming border named for the red cliffs that shadow the water.

Fly fish beneath the Green River below the dam and at a few other recommended spots. Try to hook some brown, rainbow, or cutthroat trout.

Camp along the reservoir, and in warmer months the kids can swim during the day. Sunset on the water, with fish over the fire and s’mores for desert is a great day!

Take a morning drive through the beautifully rugged Uinta Mountains, and arrive at Mirror Lake, a high mountain lake. In the high season this can be a very busy lake so we’ll have off-the-beaten-path recommendations for you, like Shingle Creek, for example.

There are a lot of bugs in the summer up in the mountains and the fish love the bugs. So enjoy pulling in brook, rainbow, and tiger trout.

As an added bonus camping in the Uinta Mountains is beautiful, remote, and peaceful. Just bring your bug spray in the summer!

Since this is a fishing tour you follow the fish. If they’re biting at Mirror Lake or Shingle Creek then stay put for your final day.

If you’re out of luck or want to move on, then hit the Upper Provo on the way the way back to Salt Lake City. Quickly accessible off the highway near Jordanelle Reservoir if your skills are honed you can hit some big brook trout in the stream.

Snap some good photos, maybe enjoy a final meal of fresh fish for lunch, and take a couple of final casts.

Then, pack up and head on down to Salt Lake City. There you’ll return the Jeep and have an equipment inspection. We wish you all the luck in the world when it comes to a fishing tour. We want some great photos when you get back!
