June 29-30, 2015 Nice sites Long walk to Visitor's Center from RV parking lot Big Rig friendly Excellent Verizon Weird: The 50 amp outlets are upside down.

Just wanted to post kudos for Blake Ranch. When we arrived, tired and ready to settle in for the night, turned out the park was full. Rather than send us down the road they suggested we dry camp for free in their nice parking lot. Good folks.

Nice little park. 50 amp worked fine. Police station is on the grounds for an added benefit. If you're in a big rig come in a secondary entrance as the primary (3 pillars) is pretty darn tight. There's a dump station right next to the main entrance and we got our fresh water fill at a spigot on the police station lawn (asked first). I gotta say, Burlington is a neat little town.

This parks fits under the Any Port in a Storm category. Gets you off the highway and out of the wind. The 50 amp worked fine.

We stayed at Ute the first night they were open for the 2014 season so our issue may well have been fixed. When I plugged into the 30 amp receptacle, it was reading between 126 and 130 volts which I figure is just on the edge of being acceptable. After a few hours it increased to 133 volts at which time my electrical management system shut us down to avoid damage. I notified the ranger the next morning. Probably fine now but better check the voltage just in case. We were in the Yucca section.

Peaceful with great views of Walker Lake. Great place to dry camp. 20 Mile is on the east end of the lake. If you are in a big rig, after turning into 20 Mile, be sure and turn left at the cross road. You'll come to a nice pull out spot on the lake side or you can continue to the end of the road for another nice spot. There is room to turn around a big rig at either spot. The only drawback when we were there was lots of flies. There's laundromat in Hawthorne (Rock by the River Motel) and a NAPA. We were in a 40' RV with toad.

Neat place to dry camp for a day or several. Excellent views and a trail or two. Easy access for big rigs. The only negative was a lot of flies. We were in a 40' rig with toad.

Good place to recharge your batteries. Pretty funky. You leave a $5 deposit for water and the attendant gives you a key to turn it on at your site. I asked about it. It's to prevent water theft. Pretty tight for a big rig (40' with toad). You need a looooong sewer hose and it's close to running uphill. Good place for a quick turnaround.

Beautifully maintained campground. Clean and quiet. Easy access for big rigs (40' with toad). Nice fire pits. Wood and ice for sale on site. We spent a week here and loved it.

Access is well signed and all paved. The park is nestled within some nifty rock formations. The sites all have ramadas, fire rings, and picnic tables and several are fine for big rigs. We're in a 36' with toad. There is a dump and water available but no power. No cellular connectivity. Generators are OK. This park takes reservations and when we arrived at around noon, most of the unoccupied sites had reservation tags. In fact, we got the last site (handicapped, only pull through and only water at site). I suggest you reserve in advance or arrive early. A camper and toad showed up after us and was turned around. We saw that they found a nice place to dry camp nearby so that's an option if you can't get a spot. Some wonderful scenery here.

Watch for the turnoff; it's easy to miss. The BLM site indicates 35' max but when you enter the road there is a sign that indicates a max of 24' with an 18' trailer. Go for it! The road is steep, dirt and very narrow with a couple of tight switchbacks but look upon this as a challenge and you'll enjoy the ride up. Just keep your fingers crossed that you don't meet another rig coming down! When you get into the park, go slow and watch out for trees. The sites are for the most part very unlevel and pretty small but there are a few that a big rig can fit in. We stayed in site (they call them units) number 8 and it worked out just fine, even got leveled. It's kind of a side of the road pull through. Once you're in, it is excellent. Quiet and beautiful. There is water available but no dump. Each site has a secluded picnic table and fire ring. Have to haul out your garbage. Initially, we didn't have a MiFi connection but found that it sort of comes and goes. We were able to do a weather check for example. There was almost no one here when we stayed (until three vans from BYU arrived!). There's a good hike which is labeled Nature Trail. Great place to stay!

Several easy access spots for big rigs in this small campground. The location is just great with some of the best views you've ever seen. You look down to the Green River from 1,700 feet above on the canyon rim. It's all dry camping. There is water available but no dump. You can dump at Firemen's Memorial Park which is about 10 miles away toward the dam on 191. Each site has a nice fire ring and picnic table. The whole park is quiet. When we were there (June) there were almost no other campers. The Visitor's Center is nice and the staff friendly. Check out the videos and take the short walk by the Center. It is great! We got excellent connectivity with our MiFi. We stayed in Site 16 which is nice if you have solar. If not, try number 10 as it is very private. We were in a 36' rig with a toad.
