Nice, mostly widely spaced sites, just a short distance off of Hwy 12 East

We have a 36’ Class A with a Cherokee Trailhawk tow and parked and dropped just past the start of Hole in the Rock Road, then went to scout for a site that would accommodate us. We found a nice site on the ridge about 0.7 of a mile in or so and stayed for 4 days(early/mid June). We would have…

Quite a gem in pretty much the middle of nowhere

We have a 36’ Class A with a Cherokee Trailhawk tow and stayed in site 45 for 4 days in early June. The CG is under new ownership and they have done a lot of facility upgrades- new cabins, office/lodge, and bathhouses, one with open air showers that were really nice. The bathhouses are the nicest…

Tight space but decent

The sites were very close together, but to make up for it, trails, petrified forest and, showers for free.

Nice Place, good restaurant

This is a good location for visiting Capitol Reef.  The sites were nice.  Gravel with trees.  Bathrooms were good and clean.  The pool was nice.  There's a decent little camp store and the staff was very helpful.  A unique feature of this campground is having a nice restaurant --which I believe is…

Got down there early Friday morning on a holiday weekend expecting everywhere to be packed. Outside of a few other campers we had an amazing spot and the animals all loved it!

So perfect

It’s the best place to camp that’s not Fruita. Gorgeous views. Really easy to spot. It’s never empty so it helped me feel more safe. It has service which is so convenient. So many spots to park. Although there is no shade.

Gorgeous eco tone of desert and forest

Great area, not terrible to get in with a car, eco diversity is gorgeous. Did get quite cold, but that’s deserts for you.

Loved how isolated the location was, dream campground for sure. I will be back very soon

Great if you want to be in the park

This is a typical desert campsite with nicely shaded picnic tables, running water, and showers. It is great if you want to see the goblins early or late. If you camp outside the park you might not be able to see the formations under the stars. Expect it to be hot and dusty. The camp is right up…

Red dirt but beautiful

Very easy to find! Right off the road however we did not hear any sound all night from the road. Great sites and a lot available! Never use the Porta potty‘s but saw them. A lot of red dirt is my only complaint if I had one. We were here on a Sunday afternoon and evening.

Awesome spot with lots to explore!

We loved this site! There are a lot of little canyon trails to explore for all ages! Super close to both Goblin Valley and Little Wildhorse Canyon! Highly recommend the Little Wild Horse Canyon / Bell Canyon hike. Bring lots of water and make sure your pets stay hydrated as well! Went over Memorial…

Decent but desolate

Close (15 mi.?) to Capitol Reef on the east side. Clean bathrooms. Hookups work. Nice owners. Cheap. Good wifi. But what a dry, dusty, and depressing-looking place!

Hidden Spot At A Quiet Park

Great campground located at the entrance to Capitol Reef National Park.

Camped here during the pandemic and enjoyed a very comfortable and beautiful experience. The site I called in was in a great location near the campground hosts and the entrance. It was very quiet even though it was…

Great Dispersed Camping!

Went during Memorial Day weekend 2021 and was not busy. If you continue going down Wild Horse Road, you can certainly find a secluded spot to park your RV or setup your tent. Traveling on Wild Horse Rd. from Goblin Valley Road is paved and pretty easy to navigate. If you're looking for that "je ne…

Close to the lake

We chose Bowery to be close to the lake and we were not disappointed! We were a short walk to the shore and caught huge trout each time we fished. The spaces are quite tight with a lot of Aspen trees to navigate around to get into the sites. We have a 34' 5th wheel and it was snug fit. The host…
