10 Reviews of Wahweap Campground
Beautiful scenery!

The tent campground is fairly basic, but they have a picnic table and fire ring, nice restrooms and a beautiful view of Lake Powell. There are also showers and laundry machines at the registration building. I would definitely stay there again!

Great stopover!

Lake Powell is beautiful. We stopped here for one night on our way north. We easily could have stayed longer. Nice store, fishing, swimming.

All the essentials

Everything we needed: tent site, toilets, water, great views

Additions: close by beach & great morning views!

Note: we got caught in major winds which turned our tent into a tumbleweed, followed by terrific lightning storm. (We slept in the car that night)

Clean, great amenities, desert + lake

Loved staying here one night while we visited Antelope Canyon. Could imagine staying another night if we‘d had plans for activities on the lake. Arrived late and our campsite info was posted on the store’s door. Easy to find, big campsites, well laid-out. Clean, large bathrooms near campsite and showers at the general store. Met cute kids who enjoyed their day on the lake. Saw one woman who was sunburnt worse than I’ve ever seen… Wear sunscreen and reapply all day, people!!! Beautiful sunrise in the morning. Obviously it’s the desert so minimal to no shade. I recommend going for the sunset at horseshoe bend nearby - it’s a short uphill hike.

Best View Award!

While the Wahweap Campground wins the most scenic view award, hands down, we were all upset about the showers. 

Throughout our week of RVing we never once had to pay to use the shower, as we are already paying a fee to stay at the park and use the amenities, why make poor travelers cough up $2 to shower? Because of the fee, we were all (all 5 women I was traveling with) expecting it to be the best shower of our trip, but it wasn't. Also… what kind of traveler has $2 in quarters laying around? Just hope that the office is open so you can exchange for quarters.

Their shop is gorgeous and has a wonderfully wrapped "Smores Kit" for purchase, as well as the firewood we needed to roast our Smores. There are ample trails and great places to go explore down to the water and around the area, but be careful, don't go barefoot because the place is covered in stickers. 

The campsites are nice and spacious with lots of trees, bushes and paved roads and paths to all of the restrooms.

Amazing views and sites

This is by far one of the best campgrounds when it comes to the sites. They are amazing! You'll get a great view of the Lake and the sites are well maintained. The only thing that is a bummer, is that you actually have to go to the shop/reception to go take a shower. Those are the only ones they have and half of them didn't even work. Apart from that it's a great spot.

Out of this world

Nicely run campgound in Page. Very large, not much shade on the sites. Great camp/souviner shop and easy access to the lake. The views around the lake are weirdly breathtaking. Clean showers you pay per minute to use and decent amount of toilets through campground.

beautiful setting, average campground

very basic campsite but the views are amazing. It might be more fun to pack your gear on a boat and find canyonside beaches to camp on for free!

Great view with horrible customer service

This is a great RV Park. The location is superb. The space between sites is very generous. Interior roads are very easy to navigate for big rigs. Very quiet at night. This place is designed right. Site was big enough for our 40 foot 5th wheel. The views of Lake Powell were awesome! The campground is maintained very well. Wifi is almost useless and there is no cable. Due to the location there are no TV channels with antennas. My only reason for not giving it five stars was the staff in the camp store/ registration. We have been to many campgrounds and the staff in the camp store were some of the worst we have ever dealt with. They do not greet you or smile. If you ask a question you will get an answer that is probably incorrect. They do not try to help or explain anything. We camped at Wahweap RV and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

First to Review
Great view, multi-use, many amenities.

Campground overlooks Lake Powell. Many loops for electric and non-electric. Clean bathrooms for each loop with flush toilets, sinks, and water refill stations. There is a main store, laundry facilities, and showers at the registration office. Nice location with several comforts. Each site has a fire ring with grate and picnic table.

While in the Page area we took in a kayak tour and walking tour of the Antelope Valley slot Canyon and Horseshoe Bend.

The Kayak tour at 6:30AM is highly recommended. We booked through Hidden Kayak Tours. We launched, kayaked through the slot, portaged and hiked into the canyon. On the way back our guide offered a free swim and rock jumping into Lake Powell. Using the public boat launch at Antelope Point you could easily navigate to the Canyon on your own with a little map knowledge

The Navajo tour through the Antelope Valley slot Canyon was crowded but worth it. There were several points to take family pictures but you had to keep moving. There is a newly build structure at the beginning so you don’t have to wait in the scortching sun to enter the canyon. There are several stairs with railings to navigate the canyon.

Horseshoe Bend is free and full of tourists. It looks like the NPS is working on improvements. The parking lot, portapotties and walk to the overlook could all use some TLC. The view once you get there is worth the short hike.
