Crazy Woman Creek Campgrounds

Dispersed camping, very primitive but well worth the inconvenience, bring your own water and everything else you might need..

An amazing area

You can't actually camp at Hell's Half Acre but less than a mile down the road is wild life refuge with dispersed primitive camping with a vault toilet, picnic table on the river, no water but this is such an amazing area and the night sky is star filled.

Best kept Secret

It's called an RV park but they accommodate tents and I'm glad I asked. It was sweltering out, they have a club house that's air conditioned, fully equipped kitchen, tables, board games, large screen tv and free WiFi. It was just the break I needed with beautiful clean bathrooms, showers, and pay laundry

Utah is hot in June

Camping was pretty rough due to the heat but the camp grounds are clean, well kept toilet, water access and the views of the stars will take your breath away.

Showers after a hot day

The campgrounds were basic, not many families. The sites had a good amount of space, picnic tables, fire ring, water, toilets and a sandy base to pitch the tent on. Not far from Arches National Park and just outside Moab so location was good.

Come hike the Narrows

The camp grounds were adequate with picnic tables, electricity, cell reception, toilets, water and fire rings. The park provided buses that shuttle you all over the park and start at 6:30 am so you can get an early start hiking the narrows. It was beautiful and exhausting… my ankle still aches a bit but it was the most amazing and everyone is so into it. I will return

A little piece of heaven

Campsites came with picnic tables, fire pit, water nearby, and toilets. Shower and laundry near the camp store/ restaurant. Trail from my site to the north rim where I saw the most amazing sunset and views of the canyon. There is a second area to the North rim with cabins and a lodge where they put on star parties at night with folks from NASA giving fascinating talks on Mars and land rovers followed by dozens of telescope on the deck to view the cosmos.

A little close for comfort

The sites are clean with picnic table, bear safe and toilet near by. The campgrounds are first come first serve so you need to arrive early and hope someone is checking out. There are toilets and pads but it was more set up for RV's except without hook-ups, but you could get cell reception and there was a camp restaurant/ store at the bottom of the falls. The person who was there to oversee the campgrounds was a lot intense warning that even if the bears smelled water in a water bottle they would come in an could attack… what about the fact that there was a FALLS right there?… I don't know

Best kept secret

This is dispersed campgrounds that's beyond belief. The sites had their own cabana with a picnic table but no trees and no water. There was a vault toilet that was guarded by a field of prairie dogs that cheeped at us like we were invading aliens from outer space, There was also a herd of Bison that came into the camping area and on one occasion I woke up to find one within 5 feet of my tent just munching on grass. I arrived the last week of May but it was still pretty hot, there were a few raining windy nights and I ended up crashing in the car my last night but that didn't take away for the fact that it was wonderful. I stayed for 4 nights and hiked around the park during the day.

Go for the view

The National Park has a campgrounds at the foot of the mountain, water, bathrooms, picnic tables and fire rings provided. The sites are close together and the area is flat, many RV's so I think there were hook ups. The evening program provided by Park Volunteer rangers was interesting and told us the name was misinterpreted and actually was Great Bear Lodge in Sioux. The view of the tower from the campsite was mesmerizing and the storm with thunder and lighting kept me out of my tent long into the night.

Free back county dispersed camping

Following the road behind the Flagg Ranch Restaurant/ Visitors Center and you will find backcountry campsite scattered in small groups of 5 and 6 along the river. Vault toilet, picnic tables, fire rings trash cans and bear safes are provided. No fires were allowed this year but the beauty of the mountains were enchanting. Park rangers stopped by to check for compliance to the 5 day limit and pick up trash, I was able to leave camp set up and go sight seeing and no one bothered any thing. There was fly fishing in the river and swimming was also possible, boating further up river, I stayed on the shore. People were very friendly and by day two we were all hanging out together watching the pelicans float down the river and fly back up together like a group of kids at a water park. It was amazing.

Family Oriented

Campsites are in the woods with picnic tables and fire ring, plenty of shade and a good amount of space between camps. They have so many birds, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits and insects that it was a veritable wonderland Playground and shallow swimming area for children with life guards and a sandy beach and new bath house. They have fishing and boat rentals, however the lake is pretty small and a lot of trees still in the water since a flood. There are nice trails for hiking that go all the way around the lake. I had my 5 year old grandson with me and he loved it but I did have to cut it short when we got rained out.
