Camp as often as we can with our twin 6 year old boys and our 3 year old diva ⛺️ 🌲⛰ 👦🏼👦🏼👧🏼
Coolest Park Ever.

So we actually did not camp here. We cancelled at the last minute and stayed in a hotel due to a sick child. But we visited the park just now for the last 2 hours! It is a giant playground if you love rocks! Our kids weaved in and out of the almost endless rock formations! As for the camping, there is a strip for campers and tents and some have electric hookups. They all have a covered picnic table and fire pit. There are also campsites within the rocks! Those all have a picnic table and fire pit, no electric. There are vault toilets around as well as a very nice visitor center with flushing toilets, showers, and accessible bathrooms/showers. The visitor center bathroom is extremely clean and has water and vending machines. The visitor center has toiletries for sale and we grabbed some t-shirts for the kids! We will be back.

Great for those wanting to do water sports

It’s a good campground. It’s just a little dated. We stayed at Tiffany Loop, 027. Some of the tent sites at that loop need some attention (the barrier fence was down and the site overgrown ). Our site was just fine for what it was. Nice sized parking spot that we backed into. Gravel pad with (uncovered) picnic table and fire pit. There was a grassy spot where we placed our tent. Lots of sticky prickly grass around so watch your little kids :) the water is down behind the camp sites , down a steep hillside. We were not able to explore the water as we had to leave early due to sick kids but there were lots of boaters, pontoons, and house boats out there and we were planning to rent something! At Tiffany Loop, there are flushing toilets, a sink, and coin showers that are all clean! At Rosa Loop (a short drive ), there are coin showers, flushing toilets, and coin laundry services. It is very hot and sunny during the day so I’d bring a shade tent too! There are cabins at Tiffany loop as well.

Windgate loop #34

Very clean site! Sturdy , 2 walled shelter with picnic table, nice fire pit. Vault toilets at parking lot (we were the first walk-in) about 30 yards away. The morning sun is super hot and bright so you may want a shade of some sort. The shelter blocks the evening sun. The camp hosts are super friendly. A sink with water for dish washing and flushing toilets are right at the loop entrance. Bring lots of water and ice in summer, it’s HOT! The nights were cool but once the sun came up it got hot! We visited Moab , Canyonlands, and Arches. Get to Arches at sunrise. Dead horse point is beautiful, go in the early am or evening.

Prospectors Ridge Site 065 👍🏼

Our family of 5.5 (I’m 20 wks pregnant) tent camped at site 065 at Prospectors Ridge . It is the furthest walk in site but the view IS AMAZING. About 350 yds to walk so keep that in mind when hauling in stuff. The vault toilets are at the parking lot and clean and there is water there too. A short walk from the parking lot, there is a nice playground, washing machines, showers, bathrooms, water jug filling stations, vending machines. There is a change machine there too Bc you need quarters for showers and using the washer and dryers. The days are hot at this time and the nights are cool. There are large bear boxes for use. There was a nice man driving a gator around offering firewood every night but we had some. Camp sites are a little close but still private . Several short (1 mile ish) hikes at this park and a nice visitor center! We would go again! I’m not sure we’d chose the last site but the view was unbeatable.

So clean!

We just left campsite 531 at Kettle Creek Loop! Our 3 kids loved playing around the little inlet of water and the playground was not too far! Very clean vault toilets close to that campsite and a bigger bathroom by the playground with showers! It’s a rocky tent pad so bring a footprint and sleeping pads. Shade provided over picnic table blocking the evening sun- it’s pretty sunny in the am but nice! It was HOT while we were there but it cooled off at night. Bring a shade tent! We will Be back!

The lake makes it All worth it!

For tents: Sites vary. There is adequate space between them. Some have electric some don’t. Some have rock beds, some have grass beds (but there are hidden big rocks in the grass making it hard to find a good smooth spot). The sites for tents are very close to the road (except for the ones near the bath house! I’m getting one of those next time! 5,6). Decent little slide for kids and some awesome rocks for kids to climb (5 yrs and up or good climbers). Pretty quiet. We drove up (or down?!) to the lake and my oh my was it gorgeous!!!!!!!! Bring soap for hand washing in bathroom.

Quiet, clean, beautiful.

Some sites are a little close together but still provide you with privacy. The bathroom (I think there is just one) is clean. The sites are clean! Lots of exploring around and the short hike is great for kids🙌🏻
