  • Back Country Campsite Closed

    Due to bear activity at Bryce Canyon's back-country, the following campsite has been closed until further notice: Sheep Creek

Riggs Spring

This site is on the Riggs Spring Loop 3.3 miles (5.3 km) from Rainbow Point and 1.6 miles (2.6 km) from Yovimpa Pass. There is reliable, but most times muddy, water at Riggs Spring next to the site. The area is a clearing with a few Ponderosa Pines and Aspens. It is 1601 feet lower in altitude than Rainbow Point, so it is an easy hike down and a hard hike up.

Datum WGS 84, 37 27 00.8 N, 112 14 26.6 W. Altitude 7514 feet (2290 m).
