BLM free camping

SR9 near Zion NP, very busy though, right on river. I would be surprised if this were still open/free due to overuse. 4wd recommended, very sandy and narrow road. <br /> <br />Update: I stayed overnight at this free BLM campsite July 28, 2009 and loved it. Look for mile marker 24 on Utah SR9 about 8 miles from Springdale, UT (entrance to Zion National Park). It does get busier on some weekends but it was great. I swam in the Virgin River and drove my Prius (very slowly) through the sand to a spot 20 feet from the river to pitch my tent. There were some rocks that I had to dodge at the entrance to the campground, and I was very careful to drive in not to soft of sand. My only complaint was the millions of ants in the sand.
