Great spot - In the Park

Great campground and definitely a spot I'd want to stay again when back in Zion. It can book up, but they have good spots with decent privacy and its a very clean and nice campground. Wake up to views in Zion, doesn't get much better! Also right next to the visitors center and walking path into park and into down. Great spot! And does have cell service there.

Quiet and Great location, expensive for no hookups

Loved this campground. Very quiet, only hearing the sounds of the creek and wind in trees all day and night. Somewhat expensive for a spot without any hookups ($26/night) but was a great stay. Does not have cell service there, but you can get Verizon service at the Cape Perpetua Visitors Center just up the road, or by using one of the trails from the ground (0.2 miles to visitor center). They have many trails leaving the campground and many in the area. Great spot to stay.

Great Spot, No OHVs allowed

My go-to spot if i come back to the oregon dunes area. This campground, while central in the dune and OHV area, doesn't allow OHVs in the grounds so it is by far the quietest and most secluded of the campgrounds in the area. Surrounded by trees and right up against the lake with a great loop trail around it. Barely has a bar of cell service (verizon) when there. Has bathrooms and fresh water available as well. And spots are large with good privacy.

Off-season Dispersed Camping

Disclaimer - Was there in off-season. Great dispersed camping with lots of space and vault toilets scattered throughout the area as well as the main bathroom at parking lot. They do have outdoor showers there too, but water is turned off during the off-season so only count on that if there during season. They also don't charge during off-season, but do during season. Great area and multiple beach spots as well as in the dune areas. Make sure your vehicle can drive through the sand as you'll need to for any of the spots. Can also get windy there during certain times of year. And no or very little cell service here (Verizon or AT&T) and issues overall in the area with service due to bouncing between the UT and AZ cell towers.

Great beach and trails there. And the lake is great and can paddle out to Lone Rock

Quiet and remote

Primitive camping here but very nice grounds. They usually do have fresh water onsite, but didn't in Summer '18 due to pipe issues. But that is getting fixed and should be running by Summer '19 according to staff. They do have vault toilets throughout grounds. Spots are nice and large for a small campground (fit our 21ft travel trailer no problem). Very private for the most part. Does have some road noise. Has a path down to river with beach access too and is about 10 min from Gasquet market. Note: No AT&T or Verizon cell service here or in Gasquet. Need to drive another 10 minutes to Hiouchi for service. Campground Host at Grassy Flats is super friendly and informative. Great spot to stay if you don't need service, close to trails.

Large and crowded - book in advance

This is a very large campground, with a mixture of RV/Trailer, tent, and yurt sites available, some with hookups. Large campground with a lot of families, etc. so not the quietest spot. But a great stay as it is central to trails and places to see in area. Trail from campground (multiple) lead right to the beach which is awesome. Full bathrooms and water onsite. They also have a little shop with some merchandise and snacks, ice, etc. They have bikes for rent (free i think) for guests there. They also have a free dump site available. This place books quickly so look in advance. I was able to book a spot a few nights before but not for more than a night and ended up moving around to different spots within the campground during my stay. Also good spot to bring dogs.
