Cedar Breaks is a national monument. What that means is the area is kept as natural as possible. For visitors and campers, in particular, it means facilities are “limited”. There is no store at the monument to buy snacks, food or for a tent camper – ice. There are also no laundry facilities either. Though we later found out that there was a town “nearby” because Cedar City itself is a long way to get to – about 20/30 minutes one way down a mountain road. Even though the national monument is small the visitors’ restrooms and separate camping facilities are immaculate. The campground hosts are very diligent in keeping them that way. I also found campground host Bill and his family to be very helpful, cordial and friendly. There are no hookups. I needed to recharge my e-reader, and Bill was more than happy to oblige. When I gave him some truffles and chocolate to thank him, we talked for awhile about other places to go. By the end of our short stay there, I had made a new friend. Bill and his family even came over to our campsite to give us more valuable advice about visiting Alaska (since that is our next trip) and even gave us an Alaskan map. At Cedar Breaks, during July the wildflowers start blooming. The higher elevation makes spring come later. I’m a southern California girl, so seeing nature at work is always exciting. On the ranger-lead mild/moderate hike to Supreme Point that took 3 hours (which I recommend if you have the time and are energy) she pointed out various wildflowers and the trees, talked about pikka tunnels and the geology of the amphitheater. Personally, I will always have warm memories for Cedar Breaks. Our experiences were all very positive. If we’re ever in the area again, I’d love to come back for their July wildflower festival which we missed because we were too early.
