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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
