Stopped in this morning to have some coffee and explore the strip for the first time, nice soft sandy/gravel. Little rocky at the start of the departure end of 33, taxied maybe 50ft or so down the runway before departing. Broken beer bottle shards in the camping area, would suggest bringing a trashbag for the next folks that head up there.

Runway was good, landed uphill on 13 even though it was a 7mph tailwind. Watch for the DA’s this time of year as I landed at 7:07am and the DA was already 9800’

Camping at Cedar Mountain

Added by Wendy Lessig 1 year ago

The south end of the Cedar Mountain airstrip is a spectacular place to camp. The camping area overlooks a 1,000 ft drop-off, with a panoramic view of the Book Cliffs and Green River valley. Bring your own aircraft tie-downs. Fire ring exists, but use caution, as the Cedar Mountain airstrip is frequently breezy.
