I thought it would be funny to camp in a teepee one night while passing through Bryce Canyon National Park…
The upside: It was humorous to the three teens/preteens with me; it was a unique experience they won't forget. The warm shower was divine.
The downside: We froze our butts off! There were so many bugs (and no way to close the seams of the teepee). It was in a high-traffic area. People were constantly coming to our teepee and looking in…
It was fun, but next time we'll return to our style of camping: dispersed, remote, quiet.
We didn’t pack towels. Asked office staff where we could purchase them. Couldn’t find them at the few stores in town. Went back to office 2 days later and when we specifically asked if they had towels for rent, we were told yes. Would have been nice to have known that the first day.
Nice camground, new showers and pool, right next to bryce shuttle stop.
Went to Bryce in June for the annual star festival, which was so unique. Tent sites are find-your-own-spot within certain regions. I wish we’d had time to check out Ruby’s pool and hot tub. Made a lot of use of their laundromat, and the 24 hour one next door. Clean bathrooms.
All the amenities you could ask for, showers, general store, and even a pool. Hardly any seclusion. The staff was very kInd. We got a pretty rough tent campground, but it was slim pickings when we got there. Some of the other sites seemed a bit nicer.
Tent camping is first come first serve, we arrived about 5:30 and was able to get a spot pretty easily however as we watch people arrive later there were less spots with fire pits and picknic tables. If you will be arriving late this may not be the spot for you. However the site did have showers and a cool conievence store. Overall a nice site just have to get there earlier if you are tent camping
we loved this campsite! Our camper was nestled in the trees with a hill behind the camper, where we could also explore. This full service campground had full hookups, clean laundry rooms and very well maintained bathrooms with free showers. The staff was extremely knowledgeable about the area and super friendly. The walk to the bus was short and only 1 mile away from the park entrance. If we ever venture back this way, we will stay here again.
Finding a site was a little hard because they dont rent specific tent sites and many aren’t numbered (or are group sites). However, the showers were very nice and the laundry facilities were quick and effective. There are several stores and restaurants in the area owned by Ruby so restocking was easy and its right outside the park for early access!
This is the place to go… Just 1 mile outside the park and you can take the Shuttle from there… Some spots are shady and some spots are not… $46 a night for full hook ups… Happy Camping!!
We found this place in rout to Bryce Canyon and stayed 2 nights in a teepee along the highway. Traffic was very light after dark so that did not bother us at all. Small store was well stocked. We were close enough to the store to upload a couple photos to family on their wi-fi connection.
There is a lot of history at this place - the last thing I would say is it is new, but it is cozy. Staff was very kind and responsive to our needs. We could have taken a shuttle to Bryce if we needed so that is a bonus for some folks.
mainly an RV spot but they did have tent camping as well - on dirt - take ground tarp to save your tent.
Showers may be small but I never ran out of hot water… and that is saying something!
