Devil's Garden

Nice dispersed spot outside of Escalante, Utah. We stayed here while we checked out the Devil's Garden and a couple other spots I will make you find for yourself!😀 Spots are big with plenty of room for whatever you have. Razors, 4 wheelers, horses, etc.. Good spot for all campers. No amenities. Pack in pack out! Signs say max stay is 16 days.

Simple Quick Find

This is a 6 spot camp ground very small. Self serve envelopes to come in in the middle of the night. Got here at midnight and there were 2 spots left. Perfect for an unplanned stop. Has a nice view and dark enough to watch the stars. I will post pictures in the morning if I remember to.


Awesome hike in camp. Permit required, can be picked up at the Escalante visitors center. Free. Hike in as far as you want. Hike in camping only. Bring Water! It gets hot. Several river crossing along the way. Deepest spot we crossed was like 2 feet. No amenities. Pack in pack out!

Escalante River Camping

Escalante River trailhead camping requires an overnight permit. Sign the register and start hiking. Camp spots along river are hiking access ONLY! Float the river pull over and camp, pretty awesome adventure. Many amazing things to see in the area. Can't really say all the cool stuff to do, otherwise there would be no discovery left for you!🤫 But Awesome!!!

Don't seem to be open (UPDATE)

One side of the place has Airstream trailers. The other side seems to be abandoned. Nobody ever here.

Yesterday 8-8-2020, there were campers at multiple spots.

Great base

Great spot to stay allowing you access to all southern Utah has to offer. New! Clean showers and bathrooms. Best WiFi I've ever had at an RV park. Close to stores, restaurants, gas, supplies. Owners are very kind and helpful. They will give you good leads of stuff to do and places to see.

Open spaces

Nice spot to camp. Low clearence vehicles not advised. Good for most campers. Lots of spots all the way down to the canyon. Amazing drives in the area, amazing hikes.

Beautiful views & experience - Noisy

Stayed 7/19/20 - $14/night

We setup just off the "main drive", between two bathrooms (12 &13) and next to a brush area.

BE CAREFUL IN THE SAND. It is easy to get your car stuck. There is a gravel path down the center, but non-4WD vehicles should turn LEFT on their way out, and not continue straight, beyond the gravel.

We had a sedan, so we took extra caution and setup camp further from the water.(Also because we didn’t want to be near people due to COVID). There was plenty of room to spread out.

We wanted to kayak Lake Powell, so afternoon setting up, it was easy to walk the kayaks down to the water and put in right on the beach. You might want to wear some type of shoes, the sand is HOT!! My friend burnt his foot and it blistered immediately. Although the views are absolutely beautiful, this campground is loud and noisy all night. Lots of ATVs, dirt bikes, etc. Cool experience, would have enjoyed it more being closer to the water and not during COVID.

13 bathroom areas with two vault toilets in each. (More than website says). Very little AT&T service.

Our Favorite Spot...In Off Season

This was a favorite spot on our 2 week trip around the southwest. We were here a week before opening season (the first week of March).

Some people may not like it during this time because it’s a ghost town. For us, it was perfect. No crowds… we had the place to ourselves.

Laundry facilities were clean and views were incredible.

Close drive to the dam, Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend.

Pros: tranquil, beautiful, close to nearby attractions Cons: limited hours and dining options during off season, no boat rentals available during off season

No shade, but nice bathrooms

No shade anywhere, but nice clean bathrooms. Not a fan of having to pay to shower, but seems popular and walking distance to the beach. Slow wifi!!
