Sunglow Campground is located in a scenic red rock box canyon just 2 miles from Bicknell, Utah. Visitors enjoy exploring local trails and day-tripping to Capitol Reef National Park.
Many miles of trails for hiking, biking and off-road vehicles are in the area. The Great Western Trail passes nearby.
The campground contains two group sites that can accommodate up to 20 people each. Flush toilets and drinking water are provided. A large parking area can accommodate trailers. The road to the campground is paved, but the road and parking spurs within are gravel.
The canyon sits at an elevation of 7,200 feet. Cottonwoods and junipers provide very limited shade. Sagebrush and summer wildflowers dot the landscape.
The Ke Bullock Waterfowl Management Area is nearby, just south of Bicknell, with wildlife viewing and fishing opportunities.
Capitol Reef National Park is approximately 20 miles away, offering excellent hiking trails, historic sites, scenic driving and breathtaking scenery.
Sightseeing along Utah Highway 12, a National Scenic Byway, is very popular. Travelers visit from every corner of the world to gaze upon stunning red rock canyons and desert landscapes.

Beautiful place. It is about a 15-20 minute drive from Capitol Reef National Park. Bad: Tent sites are small. Depending on the site, you will have to put your tent on the gravel spots for cars. Not many sites. I imagine on a spring/summer weekend it will fill up. Not lots of shade, but some juniper trees. Good: Flush toilets where a pleasant surprise. Great scenery. Kids wanted to explore all over. The red rock cliffs are pretty. It is close to town if you need something, but at camp it doesn’t feel close to town. We got there at 2 pm on a Thursday in July and only one spot had been claimed.
Amazing views, red rock cliffs and red dirt for miles.
Primitive camping with nice tables, and bathrooms, and fire pits. It can get hot here in the summer and it is nice that they have drinking water at the campsites. They have a big group site that can be reserved and it will hold lots of people. Lots of fun hikes close by. Lots of fun hills for the kids to climb.
We enjoyed camping in one of the two group sites. Our two tent trailers fit nice and there was a lot of space for the kids to run around. Each site has water and the bathrooms were clean with sinks and flush toilets.
It was a little crowded in the designated areas so we found a dispersed camping spot a little down the road. Very pretty area. Very close to Capital Reef.
It's first come first serve and the cost $12 per night. Bathroom with running water. 20 minute drive to Capitol Reef. The sites were nice some bigger than others. Of the 9 sites, 2 were for groups and were to be reserved.
