There is a view area (view point) located along US-40 in Utah, overlooking Starvation Reservoir. The view area lies just on the east side of the bridge that crosses the reservoir. On the other side of the highway is an RV Park (Camperworld).
The view area is sparsely visited, even by local law enforcement and UDOT workers. The primary reason why more people don’t stop here is because there are no restroom facilities and no trash bins. The only amenities are covered picnic tables.
For that reason, it makes for a great place park your RV overnight. And considering how so few people stop here, you could probably get away with boondocking here for a week. The RV Park across the highway charges $35.00 a night, on the other hand.
If you do plan to stay here for more than one night, consider instead staying at Rabbit Gulch Campground, a dispersed camping area run by the State of Utah that sits on a peninsula directly across the water from the view area. The entrance to Rabbit Gulch lies just on the west side of the bridge. Look for it on Google Maps Satellite View.
Otherwise, the view area gets pretty windy. There is no lighting here at night, so expect pitch black evenings. Traffic noise from the US-40 is audible, but you could easily tune it out.
