Convenient, majestic views

Decently spaced out sites (though it varies) with good trees for shade but no privacy. Sites near river are optimal for views and night time privacy and the sound of the stream, but during the day expect to have a lot of trail walkers go by.

Chances are high you will see loads of Mule deer at camp. Views of the canyon at sunset are outstanding.

Everyone should visit at least once

Absolutely beautiful a hikers paradise the deer walked right through our campsite in the evening Go!

BLM dispersed camping

Gravel road with many off shoots with camp sites. Many sites are right on the rim with beautiful views of Zion. One bathroom located at the first trailhead.

Pretty setting

Site #17. Campground sits right on the lake. We were there on a 75 degree day. Beware no shade and can be windy.

Pleasant and relaxing

Spacious spots with trees all around. We tent camped. All spots pretty flat. Tables and fire rings at each site. Very short drive to the lake.

My favorite spot in Utah

By fluke on my honeymoon we booked at this campground.! SO glad we did! My family and I absolutely LOVE it!! It’s fun of all sorts, kayaking, lake beach, boating, cliff jumping, bbq, off-roading everywhere!!! And the beauty that surrounds is unreal!!

Also a GREAT restaurant down in town called Main Street is a must!!

Park is great, sites not really.

There was very little privacy between sights. Bathrooms were okay. Noisy.

Quiet and beautiful with dark starry nights

We love camping here and come often. We would usually visit between the months of March-Early November. Spring and fall bring sunny days and cool evenings and mornings. During the warmer summer months we take to the water. The temperature is always a bit cooler than in town.  There are no fees but also no amenities. So please, if you pack it in then you need to pack it out. Bring plenty of water for drinking and cleaning. Make sure to plan ahead for bathroom/ shower needs as those are not available. If you follow the river you can find some spots with good shade. We usually find a spot near to the river in lower sunset, some spots around the bends are deep enough to swim. There is a lot of hiking nearby as well as horse trails. The kids really enjoyed hunting for crawdads, watching the tadpoles/frogs, and the cows as they would cross through for water. The nights are dark and allows for an awesome night of stargazing.

Zion in a Tent

This campsite is conveniently located inside Zion Park. It is nice because unlike the other campground it is on a two week rolling reservation so you don’t have to plan 6 months out—downside is it fills up quickly. We camped in a tent spot right by the trail and a short walk to the virgin river. Pros: decent shade (for Zion) and easy access to the water. Cons: ridiculous amounts of ants (from what I could tell most of the spots near the trail/river have that problem). I was stoked to wake up under the red cliffs and be able to relax in the river for sunset. Ants were definitely a headache but considering the views we made the most of it. Also plenty of deer roam through the campground adding to its beauty.

Solid

Clean showers and toilets. Trees for shade. Pet area with dog bags. Conveniently located off the highway but the downside is you can hear the highway. Sites are pretty close to each other. Good for a stopover

Great location, but a bit crowded

This campground has easy access to All the Cedar Breaks National Monument has to offer! Great sites, although my only complaint is that they are pretty close to one another. Also, there’s only one bathroom which is no fun when you REALLY gotta go. Beautiful views from most sites. Located at 10,000 feet it does get chilly at night. Would stay here again, but maybe on a weekday.

Nice campground

I’ve stayed at the campground many many times. It’s a nice escape from the summer heat. The sites are nicely separated compared to some of the other campgrounds up highway 14. Clean bathrooms with pit toilets. No cell reception (which I appreciate, but some might not). It is close to the highway and you hear cars going by all day. However, it’s quiets down at night. There’s a creek that runs through the campground too!

Amazing stargazing but a shaky drive!

Brilliant free BLM campsite - we loved it so much we stayed 2 nights.

No facilities nearby - we used the showers and restrooms at Zion Outfitters. There are some pre built fire pits already dotted around.

The drive up was a little sketchy - definitely need a high clearance vehicle for the upper plateaus. A car might have been ok on some of the lower spots but the road is very uneven.

Spectacular views and the star gazing was incredible.

Amazing

Great site close to trail heads and close to the resivor for fishing

I’ve seen Walmart parking spaces that are larger and more accommodating

Cramped slots out in the blistering sun. No picnic tables unless you request one and they happen to have one available. But don’t bother, there’s hardly room to squeeze between your front door and your neighbors vehicle. The lot slopes, say 4-6 inches in 8 feet so leveling up is a chore. The advertised available wi-fi in their advertisement is described as “limited” when you finally check in, and that is a gross overstatement. It sucks when it is available at all. The sewer connection is nearly 30 feet from the typical travel trailer connection. And the heat is unrelenting am to pm since shade trees are apparently a premium they decided not to invest in. We’re stuck here for 3 nights hating every minute.

Free find

Great spot to get you near the park

Overnight camping

Overnight camping not possible. Move to a next camping spot about 2miles south

Off grid camping and scenery too!

Roughly 10 mi out of Toquerville on Spring drive is The Falls. A really sweet place to stop, cool off, I saw some people swimming during the day, and just relax and take in the gorgeous canyon. Dotted with pinion pines this is a stark desert landscape that is freeing just to drive through, let alone set up and camp and drink in its essence. Road in varies in difficulty, if it is even hinting of rain I personally would find another place to go. Not just for the unpredictable road conditions, but flash flooding is a real danger. Watch the weather reports and take then into consideration when setting up camp. Ok, the fun stuff. Trailers would not be advised unless specifically made to handle the road in, so tent camping is the most prevalent, I have a rooftop tent, so it is perfect for this. Days are hot in late spring and summer, nights can get cold especially in the early spring. Be prepared for both. This is no potable water source, nor provisions to be had so go in with all you will need. Dark nights mean amazing stars an I mean amazing, bring some lounging chairs and a good wine and just lay back. Our site had a pre made rock ring and plenty of wood around to burn. It gets really dry, so be extra careful with the fire. Pack in pack out all garbage. Enjoy

Love it anybody should go

I love to stay 1 night at lava point quite and good to enjoy

Next to Park Entrance

This is an awesome campground!  With full hookup’s and a creek within the campground.

Great Site

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend since all the sites inside the park were booked full. The location is great, a bit of a drive to the visitors center but we knew that from the beginning. We had a site right on the road and were concerned at first but it ended up being pretty quiet and the view of the rock faces from our site was amazing. There was a very loud group that was shouting and singing until 1AM one night but other than that it was a wonderful experience (dead silent the second night we were there). Would definitely recommend and will stay again

Quiet and comfortable

This area is amazing. I would say medium in ways of getting to the back campsite. You would need some clearance to get across the creek.

Such a beautiful place to camp and free!

My girl and I enjoyed the beautiful views but it was still warm except for in the middle of the night when it was a little chilly. The other cool thing about this road is it’s nearby an old ghost town of Grafton where there’s an old cemetery and buildings to walk through. The road is a little rough but not too bad. There were quite a bit of bugs and some ants but we slept in my RTT so we didn’t have to worry about it too much. Would recommend to camp here to anyone.

Good little spot

Enjoyed this campground on a weekend in August, 2019. Weather was good, warm but comfortable in the shade during the day, cool but comfortable at night. Bugs were there (obviously) but not terrible; mostly just little gnats that will buzz in your ear occasionally. Arrived around 6pm on Friday night and most of the sites were full. There aren’t that many to choose from, maybe 8-10 total. There is a loop with maybe 8 sites if you squish (everyone in the loop seemed really close together) and then two other spots closer to the information board and toilet. 1 of these sites is a large RV pad and the other is a great group site secluded in some trees. There is also a few sites on the drive in but they aren’t in the actual grove of trees. Fee is $5 per night. There was no host and it had been a while since the toilets were serviced/restocked (bring your own toilet paper). Beautiful area and the drive in was a good time. Once you get off the Leeds exit, it’s about 20 minutes or so on an unpaved road. There’s only a couple deep holes that you need to look out for but other than that you shouldn’t have a problem taking a regular sedan out there as long as you have decent tires that have got some tread. Pretty sunflowers and other scenery as you drive closer to the mountain. Fire pits and fires ok. Trailheads are there but we didn’t do any hiking so I’m no help with that. All said and done, 7.8/10.

Best RV Park in Kanab area

Came here in late September and stayed for about 5 days.  Sites are not fancy but workable.  Staff there was friendly.  After driving around and looking at other RV parks in the area, in my opinion, this is the best of the offerings in Kanab.  Small, but clean laundry room, but it was super busy so I had to go to a Laundromat.  This park is busy, so you must call ahead for reservations.  Our hookups were fine, all worked well and we had plenty of room, but the spaces seemed a bit informal.  Park is small, and is in the middle of town, our site backed up directly to a residential street, with no fence on the other side.  We were happy here, and Kanab is a great place to come and visit.

Brand new RV park close to freeway

This RV park is so new, construction is not done on some of the amenities like the pickle ball court and basketball court. That said, we were impressed with the roads (wide) and spots (33’ feet wide, 80’ long). Every site has 50 amp service. This park is truly big rig friendly. There is freeway noise, but during the summer, you can’t hear it when you have A/C on. GPS cannot find it yet, so call ahead to get directions. Reservation system allows you to pick your site ahead of time.

Best wifi experience in an RV park

We needed stable, steady Internet for a month. While we regularly travel with two hotspots for Internet coverage, we barely needed to use them. 

We stayed in one of the satellite friendly spots. Unfortunately, the space we were in was not so "friendly" due to the mature trees on either side. The satellite friendly spots are in the back of the RV park, and the aisle behind us had newer/younger trees that would not block satellite (but also would provide no shade).

Your experience at this park may vary. There were clearly a lot of monthly/semi-permanent residents at this park, especially on the back in spots at the edges. We would go back here, but we'd get a pull-through site next time.

Pros:

- Internet.

- Location in reference to Zion, Bryce, and Cedar Breaks.

- Post office (for general delivery) is 2-3 blocks away.

- Major restaurants and retail stores within 10-15 miles (St. George).

- At least 3 state parks within a 20 mile radius, two are water sport havens (Sand Hollow and Quail Creek) and the other is hiking trail nirvana (Snow Canyon).

Cons:

- No pool on site. 

- Location of trees on RV space meant that we could not use our patio awning for the month. If we positioned our RV to allow us to use the awning, we wouldn't be able to park our tow vehicle at all. 

- Our RV space was in the area with grass between the spaces. Sprinklers were programmed for daily delivery, and because of the width of the concrete pad, we were getting hard water stains on our RV (the sprinkler head pointed directly at our steps out of the RV). We noticed that on some of the "monthly" sites, there were plastic sprinkler head "deterrents" that would keep the spray from overshooting onto the concrete pad.

This place is outstanding!

Definitely not “dyrt” - this is top-notch glamping at its best! Stayed here 2 nights. It is spotlessly clean and comfortable, and service goes above and beyond. There was a mixup upon our check-in (not the fault of the resort), that was a bit sensitive. It was handled professionally, swiftly, and in a manner that left all parties completely satisfied. Staff is on top of every detail. We watched crews clean and prep sites as soon as a camper checked out, and were amazed by the thoroughness and thoughtful touches.
There are events, cookouts and evening ice cream, the store is enjoyable to browse, and the personal touch here exceeds expectations!

WOW

Great spot to relax

Mammoth Creek camping area

This place is absolutely beautiful! Tons of trails around to explore on, multiple places along the creek to check out and explore some more. And if fishing in a creek isn’t your thing Panguitch Lake is about 20 mins north and Duck Creek (which you probably came through) is about 20-30 mins back down the mountain. By far one of favorite places to go!
