This place certainly is not worth the $35 a night! Nothing there but an overnight stop so guess it is supply and demand. Weeds growing in all the gravel site areas. Strange sites with gravel for your rig and a small blacktop pad beside it with no tables? No shade anywhere. Was told pull through sites for 45' rigs, but there were plenty of vacant sites and no 45' rigs came in the night we were here. What really got me was the sprinklers that came on at 3:00 am and sprayed all over our trailer!

Nice campground, above reviewers pretty much covered it all. Nice owner works around the place all the time so a "Be back at" notice may be on the front door! No shade as the trees are too small. Would stay again if in the area, right off I-84 about 10 miles north of Caldwell, but far enough off the freeway so no noise.

Date of Stay:

As the above reviewer has stated the freeway noise is constant from I-15, not to mention the high powered boat noise also. The state of Utah ought to be ashamed for the condition of this park. It looks like nobody does anything here. There are weeds everywhere, very little trimming, brush taking over everything, display ramadas are filthy and covered with droppings from the trees, leaking faucets, etc. You have zero view of the lake from any site in the campground due to all the overgrowth. They take your money and basically tell you the campground is up the road, no map provided and it's very hard to find your spot as some have large numbers and the rest very tiny numbers with your "reservation card" stuck in a slot. The fee was for a online reservation which includes a reservation fee.

The "Red Canyon Campground" is a NFS "Dry Camping" type campground located approximately 4 miles East from the intersection of Hwy 89 and Hwy 12 on the right hand side going East towards Bryce Canyon. The first review here is not for this campground but for the "Red Canyon RV Park" (a private park)located approximately 1 mile from the same intersection on the left going East on Hwy 12. I have also given the correct website for this campground (hopefully it will be changed as it was wrong also). The $6 rate is for Golden Age Passport otherwise the rate is $12.

This is a great "dry camping" type campground in the cool pines. Located about 10 miles north of Flagstaff on Hwy 89. Campground is adjacent to the Sunset Crater Visitor Center. The $9 rate reflects Golden age pass otherwise $18 night without the pass. Sites and roadways are all paved.

Lots of permanent residents (mostly loggers according to office help). Pull through sites are actually double sites where the first one in is in front and can exit easily, and the second one in has to back out if the first one does not leave before them! Sites all gravel. Next to truck stop but not too noisy. OK for an overnight stop.

Date of Stay:

OK park for an overnight. Sites are crammed in too close together and are small. Sites are gravel with paved roads. Friendly check in. This park appears to have about 80% permanent residents which seems to be the norm for commercial parks. Supposed to have WiFi but not working at this time, check in lady had no idea what was wrong with it. Trees are very small so no shade.

I think the last two reviews were either written by friends of the new owners or by one of the many permanent residents of this park as there are many! The park is right on Hwy 50 so there is considerable noise as it is very busy. The park is beside and behind a gas station with a convenience store. I wouldn't really say there are shade sites, maybe two or three. Check in was friendly. Not much to offer other than a overnight stop and certainly not a destination park.

The park is still a nice place but the main problem is that it is overrun with permanent residents and ones that leave for work early on noisy motorcycles! Not good for the weary traveler. I realize that park owners need the income but at the same time they are running off good customers. Friendly check-in. Some freeway noise.

Date of Stay:

Park has new owners as of June 07. Sites are way too close together. Not one shrub or tree separating any site. Not a single tree in the park. Most sites not level. All sites had dead grass between them, but new owners appear to be removing some grass and replacing with river rock. WiFi is pay thru a provider with credit card used online when connecting. Lots of permanent trailers around perimeter of park, some with noisy kids and dogs. Park is not on lake and no lake view!

Date of Stay:

Nice park and very popular in the summer from inland local residents. Lots of families with children. Newer loops nearest beach (no sites have a ocean view or are "on" the ocean) have water and electricity only. The sites farther from the beach include sewer. Reservations are a must in the summer months. Vehicles are allowed to drive on the beach. Lots of kite flying and kite festival was being held while we were there.

Date of Stay:

Fairly nice park, lots of grass (you park on the grass) and shade trees. This place has a large swimming pool that is open to the public for a charge so lots of kids and people here that are not camping here. OK for an overnight or for those with families that want to camp and swim in a large pool. Sites a little un-level and sewer connections are uphill a little.

Date of Stay:

Just a gravel parking lot behind the Shell gas station, but there is nothing else for miles in either direction so ok for an overnight stay. Some highway noise. Old utility connections and close together sites. No bathrooms or showers, suppose you could use gas station bathrooms up front.

Date of Stay:

Nice clean park, friendly check in lady. Roads and sites are all gravel with small pine trees separating sites. Our site was not level and looked like many were not. Sites are kind of terraced also. Park is right in town and road noise is present but not as loud as the trains that run every hour on the hour blasting their horns several times right beside the park! Cable TV has limited channels. Wi-Fi is through a pay service.

I have to agree with the prior reviewers for this park. It is in need of much repair. Staff lies to you all the time. When making a reservation they give you the impression that they are booked solid, not so as out of 150 sites maybe 20 were occupied the 4 days we were there. There really is no WiFi in the park and no access inside the motel lobby either. The only place the WiFi might work is inside the cafe at the gas station next door which they said was theirs also. I have great external WiFi antennas and they have worked everywhere except here. Air Cards do not work in the area either. We were not the only ones that could not receive any WiFi here. The sites are dirt and mud when it rains and are not level. The power boxes are old and need updating. The (I assume) water tank beside the park has noisy motors running day and night. The only restroom in the RV Park is old and dirty with no soap or paper towels. The cruddy showers are also pay! It is the only game around so they could care less if you ever return. The Rio Grande Village at the other end of the park has two campgrounds one with hookups which resembles a three lane parking lot with rigs lined up on both sides of the center lane, no shade and only holds about 30 rigs. The non-hookup campground on the other hand is very nice and private and shady with lots of grass, if you don't need hookups or tent camping this one is the right choice. The Chisos Basin campground near the center of the park also has no hookups and will only accommodate rigs of 20' or less and is adjacent to the lodge. You wouldn't want to drive anything larger up the road to it anyway with its many twists and turns.
