We chose this campground because of its proximity to Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon. We are normally state or national park campers (we have a van not RV) so our three star review is based on our preferences. If you are used to an RV Park, this may be better suited for you.
Pros: Friendly staff and check-in was smooth Generous sized spaces with picnic table (although it was raining and we didn’t use it) Clean bathrooms and showers with hot water Dishwashing sink with hot water Fitness room 10% discount for AARP and others Proximity to Lake Powell, Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon
Cons: Very close to road - lots of noise No privacy
Overall, it worked for a one night stay for us but we decided to move on closer to our next destination.
Laka Powell is a gorgeous place. Only spent a day in the campground the rest was out on the lake. Wonderful views and an open sky.
Fun trip with Sandy beach camping. Awesome fireworks show. Rainbow Bridge is breathtaking!
The lake is hot and the wind is crazy. Like all desert campgrounds, privacy isn’t a choice since the landscape is barren. The wind gusts while here kept us from making a fire and our tent almost took off on us even after being staked down. It’s not the best place to camp during summer months when the heat really gets to you, but our dog loved the lake and spend his evenings swimming with us before bed.
There are plenty of places to camp. The early summer is pretty busy. If you camp on the sand be careful because people get stuck. Beautiful waters and warm nights.
I’ve stayed at this campground two different times almost a year apart and both times the experience has been phenominal! Clean bathrooms and showers, nice laundry and the pool is a nice plus!
Basic, nice campground. Clean hot showers, indoor pool. The sites are gravel, not much to look at. Hop the little 3 foot cinder block wall and hike up the sandstone rocks for a nice view of the valley behind you. The sandstone is really cool because you can almost literally walk vertically up the wall and your shoes just grip the rocks. Fun! Short drive to either Antelope Valley Canyon or Horseshoe Bend. We will be back.
We were here for 1 night. Had reservation for Antelope canyon tour the next morning. This site was in the low $20's with my aaa discount. Small plots but not an issue for a night. Showers for everyone are included in that price. And we used the indoor pool and hot tub to relax.
Stayed here in April before busy season. Nice camper store. Only problem was a group of 10 at the site next to us. They had a couple sites but all slept in one and were up all night.
This was a rare and interesting camp ground. Most of the site was sand (duh we're in the desert!) and there's an 18 inch cinder block wall dividing the sites. There isn't much, or any privacy in the tent sites. They did have an interesting walking path that goes up a huge rock wall that was cool. Having free hot showers was a huuuuge plus! The location was close enough to town to grab food and close enough to the marina (use your park pass to get in!)
