Best for campers/trailers

This is a nice campground with large spaces and nice views. It is not ideal for tents. The campsite is a large gravel lot so we had difficulty finding an even spot. Even so, it was not a bad site. It was simple to find and is close to arches and canyonlands.

Stunning View

Great view across to Courthouse Rock in Arches National Park. Immediately nextdoor to an amazing set of dinosaur tracks with thoughtful explanatory plaques and info.

Nice dispersed site

This site was perfect for the two nights we stayed. Low cost helps balance out the higher cost of hook-up sites. No water or services but the pit toilet was clean and well stocked with toilet paper. There are nice hikes close by looking in toward Canyonlands Nat’l park. We tried riding our bikes to the trails, but the deep sand made it very difficult. The kids enjoyed finding lots of lizards.
