Utah Camping: Mountainland
Mountainland is, well, chock-full of mountains. Of course, if you spend time in the place, you’ll find that the region is more than just mountains. It’s an area of unique diversity, one of those places where there is virtually something for everyone. You’ll find things to do whether you’re interested in hot-air ballooning, snowmobiling, horseback riding, sailing, windsurfing, and other water-related activities, rock climbing, hiking, backpacking, bird and wildlife watching, biking, and more.
Mountainland is the second smallest of Utah’s travel regions, with 5,054 square miles tucked away in the northern part of the state. The region consists of three state geographic areas: the Great Basin, Wasatch Front Cities, and Rocky Mountain Province. It also includes all of Summit, Wasatch, and Utah Counties.
Located in the heart of the Rockies, Mountainland is an easily accessible place, traversed north to south by I-15 and east to west by I-80. Driving is a pleasure here, for a number of roads have been designated Scenic Byways and Scenic Backways.
