Unexpected comfort

We came upon this gem on the pass late afternoon after a long drive. This campground has 25 sites including 5 level pull throughs with more than adequate length for our long truck and trailer. July 11 and no mosquitoes, lovely flowers, perfect temperature for sleeping.

Pit toilets and no water, but the price reflects the level of service. Nice campground host. Lots of area between campsites. Fire pits, picnic tables. Paved campground road, graded gravel sites.

The best part is the Ponderosa Pine forest that surrounds the campground. Trees up to 150’ .

One group site available by reservation , the rest are first come first serve.

May the Forest be With You.

Friendly and immaculate

This spacious RV park has two pools (one limited to adults only), two dog parks (one large enough for big dogs to run and fetch), two sets of pickle ball courts and is spacious and level and nice/ oh, my.

The staff are friendly and lead you to your RV site (and actually collected and filled and delivered our propane tanks). They have a few cabins but are mostly laid out for newer RVs. They ask the age and type when making reservations. Good Sam discounts apply. This is a very nice “the only 5 star “ RV Park in Utah.

Quiet location in Escalante

This is an older, smaller RV Park that has several cabins and a few tent sites. The RV sites are typically pull through and both 30 AMP and 50 AMP are available. Nothing hyper here, but a well maintained park with nice restrooms and showers and a laundry. Located next door to a recommended restaurant and within a half mile of Escalante Outfitters - Espresso, Pizza, Salads and books and gear for your Utah Canyons adventures. Also a half mile to the Official Visitor Center: BLM, NPS and USFS - to answer all your wandering questions.

Several lakeside Campgrounds

Mountain View Campground is above the lake, but a path leads down to the boat ramp and beach. Some bring boats and go fishing for brown trout, walleye, bass and yellow perch. There is a paved path for kayak or paddle board put in.

This and the adjacent Beach Campground have dozens of sites, most with water and electric hookups, shaded picnic tables and lovely lawns. Tenting however is relegated to gravel strips with the signage: No Tents on Lawn.

Restrooms include individual toilet/shower stalls as well as pit toilets.

In mid May there are no staff or hosts readily available, so Iron Rangers (metal posts) take your money. (Have cash or a check with you.) Fees are very reasonable and the views from the Mountain View back-in sites just above the lake are pretty darn nice. I painted a picture that includes the high Uinta Peaks as well as sandstone tablelands, the lake, the junipers, the sky… it doesn’t get much nicer.
