Stay the last weekend in Oct, and the campground was completely full, so definitely book in advance. As for the campground as a whole, it is in a pretty good location. It's pretty much directly in between the Mesquite Flats Sand Dunes and Bad Water Basin. It's also directly adjacent to the visitor center with a restaurant and gas station near by. As for site 56 in general, it's probably one of the better sites. Site 56 has some of the most shade in the campground, which is hard to come by, and is also close to a water fill station and the restrooms without being so close you get all the traffic. The only complaint would be the size. It's can definitely be cramped if you have more than one tent and vehicle.
Devils garden campground is awesome. virtually every site has an incredible view. our site a slot canyon behind it that we could climb in. sites aren't "big" but are adaquet. campground is at the very back of the park so it is a drove to some hikes but being at the back will keep you away from the traffic. overall, one of the best campgrounds I've been too. Only knock is no camp store nearby.
Overall, the campground is ok. There are a ton of sights so chances are you'll always get one. There are couple downfalls. The location of the campground is somewhat out of the way from the park itself. Also, since they do have some many sights, the sights are pretty small. However, its not all bad, some sights have incredible views of the mountians.
Stayed on a group site. As usual the group sites are much larger, and also more expensive. Group sites usually aren't too full so large space and few neighbors is always a plus. The sites are however father from the lakes and trails.
Bakers Creek campsite is great. The sights are good sized, and they're spaced pretty well. Definitely won't run into you're neighbors. It's a little bit of a drive to the Lehman caves visitor center, but it's better than some. It's first come first serve, but Bakers Creek doesn't fill up often.
This campground is awesome. The sites are very large. There are only about 70 and they're first come first served. There is a lot of shade and a near by orchard and the Gifford house. Both within a few minutes walk. The rover runs right next to loops a and b and is a nice cool down in the heat.
The campground was well maintained, but the sites are a little cramped. This is made up for, however, by it's proximity to everything. You're only a short walk from the visitor center, trails, and your departures. There is also a restaurant and camp store nearby.
Stayed in July of 2016. Our site had the AT running right behind it. The was plenty of access to trails, and pretty central to the park. The campground is near showers, laundry, campstore, and visitor center. Only down fall is proximity to neighbors.
Stayed here in March of 2016. The campground was clean and well kept. The lots were well sized and located close to the general store. The campground is also very close to the rim trail making hiking easily accessible.
