Anyone know what the deal is with the no camping signs all over the place by the Prophesy Wall? I  thought this was all BLM land. Is it just some sort of easement near the water pipe?

A lot of that area is private property owned by a utility company. Most of the BLM land out there is uncampable or in wilderness area. There were some rednecks living out by the upper reservoir for a few months, and I think they wrecked it for the rest of us.

Sure enough. You can use caltopo.com to look at who manages the land. It is private.

You can see the lake and the campsites center of photo. Orange is BLM.

Looks like the cliff itself is BLM, fortunately. Any thoughts on the closest convenient camping for that crag? That used to be a spot I enjoyed camping at.

There are many other BLM roads in the area off 18.

Has anyone had any experience trying to prove that they are on BLM land? Regarding Prophecy, some of the roads come off of Sand Cove Road and into BLM land, at least on the St George BLM map and caltopo. But signs are still posted on those roads.

The BLM can still restrict camping on their land. An example of this is Smithsonian Butte road where you are not allowed to camp within 1/2 mile of the road. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
