Childhood fav

Lots of beautiful trees. Close to the reservoir. Not a bad weekend getaway. It used to be much more of a marvel before the recent mountain fire. Good fishing and a peaceful night.


lots of spots along river and canyon walls- we rolled in late evening and most spots were filled up. Follow along the road to find spots right up against red rock! close to the road but feels like you’re far away

Beat the heat

This is a great place to camp or do a daytrip. Walking/bike path a little reservoir to fish in and a whole lot of shade trees.

Amazing Spring Camping Spot

I'd recommend this as an early spring camp outing. The temps climb quickly in Southern Utah in late spring. My kids had a blast in the sand dune area.


Such a beautiful spot. Right next to Mammoth Creek surrounded by Dixie National Forest. Lots of sites and pull offs. No hookups or water but there are pit toilets. New favorite campsite!!

Packed!!! I mean PACKED!!!

It really should be no surprised with the popularity of the Big 5, but the campground was packed.  After a little snafu with our reservation, we were permitted to camp in an RV site with our tent.  Needless to say, it was a little loud with the generators purring throughout the night.

Make sure you start any hike early in the morning as everything fills quickly.

Also, be sure to utilize the reservation system during peak season.  Despite the snafu, if we had not had a reservation, we would have been out of luck.

Central between Zion and Bryce

Lovely family owned place in need of some TLC. It was centrally locates to Zion and Bryce but the campground needs upgrades. We were able to get Verizon signal and our Dish Network worked well here. Laundry was available and all need a good cleaning.

Great Camping

We stayed two nights in spot 14. It was the perfect spot, across the street from the showers and bathroom, very shaded, and had lots of space for the kids to explore. We couldn’t smell anything from the bathrooms or hear anything, so being so close wasn’t an issue. If anything it was a bonus because we had little kids and it was easy access. Our car and picnic table was shaded some of the day. The bathrooms had just been cleaned when we got there. Very clean place to camp. Our campsite was probably one of the best from the loop. The only downside to our location was you could hear the cars, trucks, Razers flying down the highway. It was very loud at night and hard to ignore when going to sleep. There is absolutely no cell service. Pets are allowed on leash.

Nice location, overcrowded quickly.

When calling they said they have 5 “first come-first serve” camps. Well, we were able to get one, pay the fee, yet others kept coming to where there were WAY more than 5 camps being used. 2 people went off to the north of the shoreline and a large group came in later and camped off in the field. Others kept coming in after closure with their vehicles and spent the night. Way too many…

Did I pay for my campsite when I didn’t need to?

Great dispersed camping

It’s easy to miss the turn onto the dirt road, so definitely scout it out on Google maps ahead of time. The road can be muddy and rutted after a rain, so take weather into account. That said, we got our 30 year old 30 foot motorhome in and out multiple times.

All around a great spot. Right next to the creek, generally quiet with few other campers. Nice and dark at night for star gazing, and shade trees for during the day. Tons of hiking in every direction, and Zion is close by.
