Rocky but roomy campground

This is a campground within Great Basin National Park. It is reservation only, which is why we picked it, but there are several other campgrounds within the park. I believe the others are first come, first served. We found that the sites were pretty private and not on top of each other at all. The cliffs here are very pretty and are a nice backdrop. Grey Cliffs is a tent only area and each site has a fire ring with a grill and a picnic table. There is no running water, vault toilets and trash cans put here and there. We have a tent that needs to be staked-this was a problem there. The ground is so rocky it became very difficult to drive a spike into the ground far enough to work and not bend them. Do not bring a large tent, the pads are small. It wasn’t terrible once we were set up, and the price is right. If we were to come back to the park we’d try to either camp at Baker or Wheeler Peak, up the road a ways.

Sites are close together but in a nice area

We visited Capital Reef National Park and it is amazing! It feels like you’re on another planet with it’s red rocks and formations. Fruits Campground is very close to the visitor center and the Gifford House. It is really quiet and very pretty but most sites are pretty close together. It seemed to us, though, anyone who was there was coming to relax and enjoy a park less visited, so it wasn’t a problem. Don’t forget to look up at night, you can see the Milky Way there.

Great views

You’re on the valley floor and you really can’t beat that view wise. There are a lot of amenities near the campground and the busses (if they’re not too full) stop at the entrance. There is an amphitheater in the campground with ranger talks also. They ask you not to have a fire if you don’t have to, and you will see why at night. It hangs in the air. Sites are spaced apart enough, and it wasn’t too loud when we were there. If you can get a site here, take it. You won’t regret it.

Not a bad place

There isn’t much here, but there is running water and vault toilets. When we went you could make reservations, but there were plenty of walk-up sites available. The hosts were nice, but the night we got there we were reading the board at the entrance when a man popped out of the trees and started asking us questions. He was nice and we got straightened out and found out where we were going but it was a little strange. It was a nice campground though, very quiet and very close to the entrance of Mt Rainier National Park. My husband said it was one of his favorite places on our trip.

Quite a trip to get here

It is a nice place and there is a lot to do if you have a boat. There isn’t anything around so take what you need and just enjoy the simple life while you’re there. The road is dirt for some 10 miles to get you there, and it was washboard at times. The campground is clean and the hosts are really nice. We went when the caterpillars were hatching so they were everywhere but it wasn’t a big deal. We had a really quiet spot. All sites were big.

Nice campground

Nice campground in Yellowstone National Park. Sites were close together, but they had some nice amenities such as dishwashing room off bathrooms (flush toilets), visitor center very close by with restaurants and gift shops, an amphitheater with ranger shows, shower access and laundry. We really liked it here and will come back again. We were there in June and it snowed the day we left, so be prepared for some unpredictable weather.

Very close quarters

This place was ok. Not much to it and not a lot of amenities. If you need something make sure you bring it with you, it’s a 40 minute drive to the valley. The sites are very close together. We felt like the bathrooms were fine. As long as you’re cool with being close to your neighbors you’ll be good. Rangers come during the weekend mornings to bring coffee and info which was nice. Overall decent experience.

Nice cabins very close to giant sequoia groves

We were able to stay in the cabins for a night and they were small but clean. Some cabins have electric and some do not, but honestly, electric is not necessary while camping here so if you can’t don’t have it don’t worry. The area is very close to some awesome sequoia groves and was very quiet which was great. There are showers for people who stay in certain areas, but you need tokens from the front desk at check in. Don’t forget to ask, we didn’t know until we were naked, ready to go :). Hosts were very nice. Overall, great experience here.

Nice campground

Very nice campground up from the reservoir. It’s quiet despite the area being very busy during weekends. We’ve been here several times and even saw a moose in the Mess Hall loop once. The hosts were helpful also. Nice sites nestled in pine trees. There is running water and vault toilets throughout the campground. There were some wicked thunderstorms at night (which we liked). Some sites are small so make sure you know the dimensions of the equipment you’re bringing.

Great campground

This is one of those places you don’t want to talk about because it’s so cool you want it all to yourself. It is amazing. The sites are spacious and you are surrounded by huge redwood trees. There is an amphitheater, visitor center, showers, ranger programs, access to the river and trails through beautiful groves. It really has it all. My kids earned Jr Ranger badges as well as another patch just for this campground. I will be back here, and I don’t say that about a lot of places. So glad we got to visit here.

Cool campground in moss-covered forest

This is a cool place to camp. Tucked inside a moss-covered forest in Olympic Park, you are in a place that is very unique. There are hot springs, but they charge by the day and it isn’t cheap. Stock up before you get to the park, the nearest town is about 40 mins away. Also, the RV Park is really just a parking lot, so be aware of this. If you have a camper or tent, go into the campground part. Sol Duc falls is very close also, and worth the short hike. It was a great experience, very glad we camped here.
