Note that you can access their entire web site, which has all kinds of useful information and suggestions for travel. Each state's district offices have equally valuable information.

BUT ALWAYS CALL before you go. Many of the roads shown are not passable with travel trailers, especially when wet!! The BLM staff are very helpful in suggesting appropriate roads and things for you to see and do, especially in your case, as you wish to get off the beaten track. There is much in southern Utah, western Colorado, and Wyoming and Nevada for you.
This is a very good suggestion. We always stop at the regional BLM office where we plan to camp. We buy the map and visit with staff about local conditions.
