    However, will you travel near Salt Lake City/Provo area? If so, the opportunities are endless. ( for hanging. Otherwise, most anywhere in the state - like Moab- is spectacular) The most obvious is to take highway 150 up to Mirror Lake area in the High Uintas . Camp at a camp ground near Mirror lake or head down a forest service road to a million other spots.

    Or drive to the other side of Provo towards CO ( and towards Heber Utah) and enjoy the Mt. Timpanogas area, and maybe Wasatch Mountain State Park.

    Or closer to town(SLC), drive a short distance west of SLC into the Big or Little Cottonwood Canyons. ( Towards Brighton, Snowbird and Alta Ski resorts). These canyons are spectacular, and forested. There are a few campgrounds.

    It is really pretty endless. Just pick a forest service or other campground above 6000 to 7000 feet and you should be good to go.
    Billybob 58 you must really get around. Be careful about Mirror lake in the High Uintas, sting up your hammock there and you may never leave. It is absolutely beautiful there. Lots of good hikes and fishing as well. Timpanogas caves are fun to go through if you are in that area.

    I grew up in Utah about 30 minutes north of Salina, which is right on I-70 (only had one mom ). If you get of I-70 in Salina, head north on highway89 about 15-20 minutes, you can hit some beautiful mountains. But, it depends on how adventurous you are. To really hit the high country, it will take you another 45 min on dirt roads (well maintained) to get into the high country. You'll be sure to see Elk, deer, etc. So, for example, you could head up 12-mile canyon, which is located in Mayfield, UT. Or Manti canyon, which is a bit further north in Manti. Or you could take off up Salina canyon, and find someplace in the national forest. There is a lot of stuff in that area, but nothing right off the freeway.
