Well, my suggestion of Arches National Park was based solely on its proximity to Moab, Utah. I've never been there. In fact, the only place I've ever been in Utah is the Salt Lake City airport. But I should have known that it would be overrun with SUV's. Edward Abbey was bemoaning its slide toward industrial tourism back in the 60's when he wrote Desert Solitaire.

But if you wanna have it at something like a farm, I will gladly donate the use of my humble homestead. We have eight acres with access to 60 more acres behind us that nobody lives on. It's mostly uncleared woods, but we've made lots of paths through them so people can get lost wandering around behind the little animals. We have a one-acre pond with an island in the middle and banks that form a natural amphitheatre and it's wired for sound. All we'd have to do is build a stage and dig a couple of latrines (I don't think our indoor composting toilet could handle the crowd). Lotsa snakes and possums and armadillos wanderin' around at night to get in people's tents (I'm assuming camping is cool with everyone - no motels for many miles and you can't all stay in my little two-room cabin).
