Runway had some ruts from OHVs doing donuts, but they were not bad, the rest of the runway was great, windsock is pretty beat up. Hot and high DA during my visit, was glad that wind favored downhill takeoff.

The previous reports are accurate and very helpful. Runway 15 slopes uphill and therefore the favored runway for landing. I would add that a swell exists at the touchdown area of runway 15 so plan the touchdown a couple hundred feet from the end of runway 15 and avoid the surprise bump. The airport is a worthy stop having an awesome view from the runway.

Runway is still in good condition. However on the south end someone did donuts on the runway leaving small ruts. They weren’t to deep but noticeable while taxiing.

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.
