    My usual gang of idiots & I were thinking of tackling some of the Kolob terrace routes this July. We will be arriving Weds July 5th in early afternoon. Have never stayed at Lava Point. What are our chances of getting one of the camping spots? Slim to None? or decent chance? thanks!

    I'd say more possible than you might think. The day of the week, being after the holiday, and the time of day points to a decent chance of success. Even though there are only 6 sites in my experience, well, 2 out of 3 times there was at least one spot open. That third time we still managed to find a spot up at the Reservoir despite how busy it was. I'd definitely keep to that early afternoon schedule.

    Jeremy - Thanks for the feedback and I had no idea there was additional camping in that area (by reservoir)
    Appreciate it!

    Going during the week definitely helps.

    I'd say low.

    Boaters up for Kolob Reservoir (OK, fisherpeople) have discovered the campsite.

    If you don't manage to snag one, we live in La Vekin with a house that sleeps 20, always down to host fellow canyoneers.
