Comments

There's an incredible, free, campground at the airport.  The "Paul Bowmar Memorial Campground" is open in Escalante Utah. This is going to become a legendary fly-in location. Paul was an avid flier and had always promoted the area to pilots. His dream was this campground and now, with the help of the RAF and many friends, it is a reality.

The campground is right on the airport (1L7), and has a covered cook shack, with running water, electricity, BBQ, refrigerator and a microwave! Numerous campsites overlook the incredible valley and the runway. The pilot lounge has a shower and indoor bathroom. I'm pretty sure I also saw a computer with Internet! 


Escalante is a little story-book town, steeped in Mormon heritage, and surrounded by some of the most beautiful country imaginable. There are Parks & monuments in every direction, and activities galore. While there might be some Winter activities, the town pretty much shuts down in the Winter.

You could easily use Escalante as a base and do quick fly-outs to Monument Valley, Lake Powell, Bryce, Zion, Grand Canyon, Marble Canyon, Page and more. There is no fuel at 1L7 (yet), but you can pop over to Cal Black Memorial (U96) for AvGas (or MoGas!)

If you don't want to camp, the town has plenty of places to stay, including some great little log cabins.  It's a bout a mile from the airport and (as of now) there was no courtesy car.  But the friendly folks have always offered us a ride.

Decent runway and ramp.  Self serve sits on a sloped ramp.  Very nice pilots lounge with bathroom, shower and snacks.  Nice pavilion with tables and kitchenette.  Courtesy car available.  Close to Escalante.  Surrounded by magnificent scenery.
