Backcountry Campsite Closures
Due to bear activity at select campsites in Bryce Canyon's backcountry, two backcountry campsites have been closed until further notice: Sheep Creek and Iron Spring.
Iron Spring Campsite
This site is 3.9 miles north of Rainbow Point and 3.9 miles (6.3 km) south of Natural Bridge Campsite. Iron Spring .12 miles (.19 km) north of the campsite has reliable but bad-looking water. There is sandy soil, Ponderosas, White Fir, Douglas-fir, Manzanita and groves of young Quaking Aspens, just to the north and to the south. You can get a glimpse of the cliffs above the trees. There are some logs to sit on. If you use the water, be sure to purify by boiling for at least 10 minutes, or use filtering or purifying tablets.
