Good Place for Kids

With a pool, petting zoo, a corral where they have a fire and s'mores followed by a movie, this is a great place to camp with the kids.

The showers are free and usually clean although on Saturday evening the campground was full and the bathrooms were dirty and out of TP.

There are tent sites, RV sites and cabins so something for everyone.

There were A LOT of stray cats on the property which kind of drove our dog crazy. But at least the campground is pet friendly.

If you plan to go into Yosemite NP, it's a long drive so plan accordingly. Our family really enjoys Rainbow Pools and Yosemite Pine's proximity to Rainbow Pools is part of why we stay here. The kids can jump and swim there and that's all they really want to do anyway so being close to that is key for us. So many of the places in the park where we used to get in the water do not allow swimming anymore.

Close to Las Vegas Airport and Strip but you'd never know it!

On our last night of a week long trip to Utah and Arizona, with an early flight out the next morning, this campground was perfect. It's only about 40 minutes form the Las Vegas Airport but feels like you are forever away from the hustle and bustle of the strip.

Each site has a set place for the tent so you aren't trying to find a flat piece of ground for your tent as one is already provided.

Although we only used this as a stop over on our last night, we will be back! There is so much good hiking right there in Red Rock Canyon. Wish we would have had more time to explore!

Add this to your bucket list!

You drive about 2 miles down a dirt road to get to this wilderness campground. The only facilities are pit toilets. But don't let that keep you away. The location is right on the Paria River and it's so beautiful and peaceful here. And at $5 a night, you can't beat it!

You can hike along the river or just hang out and enjoy the views. We were here in April and the no-see-ems were out so bring bug spray!

It's probably best suited for tent camping but we did see one small trailer when we were here.

Location - Good News/Bad News

The location is great, right on the main road so easy access to the campground. However, this means you hear traffic all night long.

The showers at the campground were by far the best showers of any campground that I've ever visited. And the other great thing was they have dish washing sinks!

Overall a great place to spend a night or two but consider ear plugs if you are in a tent!
