We came late in the year, however one section was still open. There was plenty of spots to choose from. The site had rabbits, deer and antelope roaming around. The bathrooms were clean and well kept. No soap dispensers but there was a hand air dryer.
This campground is 20 dollars a night, which is a bit more than some of the nearby campgrounds. Very nice hosts and some grassy spots for tents. The views of flaming gorge are great.
