I've been to Utah many times, mostly in November and December. April in Moab was quite the contrast! Minimum 30 minute wait to get food at any restaurant-every informal car camping spot within a 20 mile radius taken-one trail had a line-up to get in! My buddy and I decided to avoid Moab over the Easter weekend and try somewhere else. We lucked out south of Hite where we had no trouble getting a private, primitive campsite on Lake Powell. The trails and scenery were just as good (if not better) than Moab. We could ride all day and not see more than a few other travelers. It was indeed the highlight of our trip. I made up the video below, showing the highlights from each day.
