Convenient place to stay

Stayed here one night while visiting Lake Powell. Got a peek of the lake from the edge of the campground. Only a few spots - on a Thursday ~4pm there were 2 left. No amenities. Slow, but passable wifi via Verizon.

Great spot, ok facilities

Was in a tent. Some spots shaded, some not. Might want to call to make sure if you need shade. The petrified forest trail was a lot better than I expected. Do the full loop. Extremely close to town and services.

Beautiful Cliffs and awesome INDOOR pool

Great location-- close to Lake Powell AND WalMart! Beautiful cliff backdrop. The surprisingly nice indoor pool was great to cool down in the heat.

Great spot to get out of the sun and relax by the creek!

Fantastic campsite to escape from the desert heat / sun. You are right on the creek with perfect access to the Lower Calf Creek Falls trailhead so you can beat the crowds. Drinking water / flush toilets available, and you can swim right in the creek. Spots are very secluded from the mayhem of the…

Nice amenities and view

We camped here for a few nights and had a really nice time. There is little shade at the campsites, but there are places you can go for shade. The laundry room is air conditioned and has outlets to charge devices. The people working in the store and check in were super friendly. Would definitely…

Late night check I

Showed up at 9pm with no reservation but we were easily able to book a spot using their digital kiosk. Showers were nice and clean. Laundry was available for $3.50 per load and up. Nice quiet and conveniently located between capital reef and Bryce.

Very Convenient location

Wicked convenient to Page / Horseshoe Bend / Lake Powell. Still 2 sites available as of 8pm on the Friday of 4th of July weekend, so despite it being small it’s not a bad place to check when others are full! Close to the highway so a little noisy, but a great stopover point for one night.

Channel your inner Mad Max

Dude, this place is crazy. Seriously, prepare yourself for some off-road trekking that will have you questioning yourself and the limits of your vehicle. Best visited by Mojave dune racer drivers in the full set ups, this side trip down a crazy canyon out to a Sandy dune field on cove of lake…

So hot! Don't forget your sunscreen.

Beautiful views. Fun place to camp and swim. But also very hot with very little shade. It was also a pretty long walk to get to the water. A bit pricey, but it is a National Park, so you have to except to pay more.

ATVs all night long

If you’re looking for a quiet place to sleep, or to sleep at all, this is not your place. People driving their trucks & ATVs literally all night long. Had 2 huge toy haulers and about 6 other vehicles pull up next to us at 3am and people were driving past us all night. Fireworks being shot off…

Hidden Gem!

Hidden in the middle of red rock canyon this campground was great! Late check-in greeted and led to site by security. Campground was quiet and peaceful. Woke up and saw the splendor of this place! Clean showers and there are plenty. Well kept grounds and great laundry room. They have signs up…

Page - The only place to camp

We stayed at the Page Lake Powell campground for the second time in May 2021.  The sites are excellent with decent spacing.  The facilities look to be great and well maintained but we did not use any as we were only there one night.  The hosts were really friendly and helpful.

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.
