Beautiful Views of Flaming Gorge

We stayed here over Father’s Day weekend (#31). Beautiful views of the lake and a pretty quiet area for Flaming Gorge. There is a boat ramp close by. The 4 mile dirt road was the main downside for us. It’s also a bit dated. Overall it’s a pretty good site.

Enjoyed our stay

The views are great all around. We didn’t have any problems except for the mosquitoes are bad. Bring your bug spray.

Great Campground at Dinosaur NM

This is a great little campground nestled by the river in Dinosaur NM. Sites are nicely sized with a fire pit and nice picnic table. There are flush toilets and sinks in the bathrooms and potable water. There’s even a spot where you can walk down to a small beach area to wade in the river. Very nice campground.

Pretty Good Location

This is a good Boondocking site, especially if you have a SXS or watercraft. Not much charged to stay…they let me stay free as a veteran. Can’t say that’ll happen again.

Nice spot

My husband and I didn’t like our campsite at the Gorge because it was too windy that day. With our destination being Rocky Mountain National Park, we decided to head out on the unbeaten path. We used the app to locates a few options but once we got out of service we lost track on the app. Maybe we should have gone pro. But we passed the sign and tuned around because we felt like we were not having much luck if campsites. We pulled in after a short drive down the road and found our spot near the bathroom. It serves it’s purpose for the night. We wish it wasn’t as windy and would have started a campfire if it wasn’t. Nice place.

Peaceful campground among the Pine trees

We just got back from a weekend RV camping at Canyon Rim campground in Flaming Gorge UT. We absolutely LOVED it! Quite, peaceful, well maintained, new fire pits, very clean toilets. A herd of big horn sheep just meander through the site super close but they are non threatening, seem to be used to people, not bothered at all. It was so cool! Sites are well spaced and there are a few that are set back (#10) which is a GEM if you don't want to be near anyone. The Canyon rim trail runs through the CS, just jump on and its about 1 mile to the Red Canyon Visitor Center. It was closed but still gorgeous views.  We had an extremely windy day and spent most of the day in the RV, kids wandered around the campsite looking for "cool rocks" which there are ALOT of! I'm guessing it gets quite windy in most areas of Flaming Gorge in general. We'd go back for sure! Temperature was really comfortable between 45 at night and 75/80 during the day.

Great views and private sites

This campground is located right up the road from the marina. Loved being able to be close to the water but have such a private, wooded site. Can be busy and would recommend a reservation vs walk-in.

Beautiful area

Not quite as busy as the neighboring campgrounds and we were able to get a walk in site. Loved having the shade from the trees.

Desert camping at it’s finest

This was my first time at this campground and it was great! It’s close to hiking, wild horses, the u-dig trilobite digging center, the sink hole. Great for a weekend getaway. We were there mid-May so the temperature was perfect, but it was windy. You can see all the stars on a clear night

Things you should know: No reservations, it’s first come first serve There is one pavilion for a bunch of camping sites (this is your only source of shade so bring sunscreen) Bring your own water Dog-friendly, but there are lots of people passing through during the day. There is a bathroom in site Make sure you have good tires and drive slow, the rocks destroyed our tires
