Home Forums General Discussion Looking to go off-grid in Utah Re: Looking to go off-grid in Utah


Well, as one who has done a lot of hunting and fishing through Utah (born in SLC), I would first ask Northern Utah with the Uinta and Wasatch mountain ranges? Or Southern Utah with it’s sand dunes and rocks?

The easiest location for living off grid is Southern Utah. There used to be a few communities around Moab and the Green River area. Many off griders in the South are polygamist families staying off the FBI radar.

Northern Utah can be pretty nasty in the winter. We used to park a 14 foot trailer in the Wasatch mountains in the fall so we could snowshoe in and dig through the snow to find it in the winter when the snow was a couple feet over the top of the trailer. Sure was peaceful.
