This campground could use some sprucing up. The buildings, signage, etc. really look worn, but it isn't anything that a coat of paint wouldn't fix. The campground is for sale, so I imagine the owners just don't want to put any more money into the place. That's too bad because the rates are excellent and it's not far from the south rim of the Grand Canyon, so it's a good place to camp while visiting the park. We got good cell phone (AT&T) and wireless coverage (Verizon) while there. Also, the people in the office and in the restaurant were very friendly. You also get a 10% discount in the restaurant if you're staying in the campground. We'd stay here again when passing through the area.

Great campground with full hookups. Internet and cell service is excellent. Not as sandy as we thought it would be, which is good because it was pretty windy when we were here. There isn't any shade, but the picnic tables are covered. Sites are paved as are the roads into the campground. Very close to Zion National Park. We would stay here again if we were in the area.

This is a really nice U.S. Forest Service campground. Sites are well-spaced and all have paved areas on which the picnic tables, grills and fire rings sit. Water is easy to find as there are spigots scattered around in the various campground loops. Dump station area was paved. Only negative is the lack of cellphone (AT&T) and Internet (Verizon.). Dish worked just fine. The rate reflects our Senior Pass discount.

Very nice forest campground. Most of the sites have lots of elbow room and shady areas, but not as many trees as you might expect in a forest setting. The park is clean and well-maintained. The biggest problem was the lack of cellphone coverage (AT&T ) and no Internet (Verizon ). Our Dish did work though. We extended our stay by a day it was so quiet and peaceful. Capitol Reef National Park is less than 20 miles from here, so it was an easy drive over there to visit the park. Our rate reflects our Senior Pass discount.

Quiet campground just outside of the Needles area of Canyonlands National Park. It could be awesome, but it isn’t very well taken care of. Some of the sites were overtaken by all the weeds growing on them. Other sites were fine, but needed some shade trees. The surrounding area was beautiful with the high red rock cliffs. The price (free) was right, too. We would stay here again if visiting the Needles, but wish they would spend a day getting rid of the weeds.

Large sites that can fit just about any size rig. Very quiet while we were there and lots of open sites. Could use some shade trees, however. We would camp here again. Rate reflects our Senior Pass discount.

Great park for exploring Dead Horse Point and Canyonlands National Park Island in the Sky. Sites are gravel, but very level and there was lots of room between us and our neighbors. Campground host is very knowledgeable about the area and gave good suggestions for where to camp on our travels in Utah. This is a very quiet, peaceful setting.

This is an excellent campground that has been updated recently. Each space has room for a camper, vehicle and boat. The pad/parking area and picnic area for each site is paved. The fire rings are cement and new, and so is the picnic table. The only thing this campground lacks is shade trees. There are several new trees planted in the campground, so the shade will be here in a few years. The views of the mountains and lake are wonderful. Antelope were in the campground the day we camped here. Our rate reflects our Senior Pass rate.

This is a nice little BLM campground near the Green River. Sites are large, level, and well-spaced. This definitely helps to minimize noise coming from your neighbor’s generator. There is a view of the Grand Tetons and lots of wide open space. Shade trees have been planted on the outside campsites, but they aren’t big enough to provide much shade yet. The host is very friendly and greets you on arrival to see if you have any questions. We’d stay here again. Rate reflects our Senior Pass discount.

This campground needs some care. Tree branches are not trimmed, making it difficult to find a suitable site. You are assigned a site based on the length of your camper plus tow vehicle. Height and width are not considered. We were assigned a site with a tree limb over it. The limb was 9 feet off the ground and our fifth wheel is higher than that. Luckily they let us change to another site. It was too narrow, but we were able to make it work by tying several branches back. Some neighbors in a medium-sized motor home had to try 3 sites before finding one they could fit in. We were here after Labor Day, so the campground wasn’t full. I don’t know how easy it would be to change sites during the summer. We’ll stay outside the park next time in a U.S. Forest Service campground. Rate reflects our Senior Pass discount.

This is a National Forest Campground, so there is plenty of shade on every site. There is also plenty of room between the sites. The other big plus is the proximity to the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. The only negative is the road into the campground and the roads in the camping loops. They are very rough. It rained the day we arrived and we couldn’t see all the giant potholes hidden in the pools of water on the road. It got better as the pools dried up, but there isn’t much shade in the camping loops, so it took a few days. That’s the only negative and we’d stay here again.

Beavertail Hill is a small campground on the banks of the Clark Fork River. They have several pull-through sites which can accommodate larger RVs. The back-in sites are rather short. It’s best to check the park’s reservation system to insure there is a site big enough for your rig. Avoid site 6 (our site) if you can. It is located next to the comfort station. The fire ring and picnic table, which can’t be moved, are right on the path leading to the restroom. Everyone going to/from the comfort station passes you while you are eating or enjoying your campfire. The caretaker is very friendly and helpful, which is a plus. The main activity here is floating the river.

Great primitive campground in the Flathead National Forest. There are 2 loops and almost all of the sites are paved. Some of the sites are extra-wide to accommodate two campers for folks travelling together. Swan Lake is across the road if you want to go boating or fishing. Bicycling and hiking are good in this park. Water is available in the campground, but there is no dump station. There is a campground in Big Fork that will let you use theirs for a fee.

Only 5 campsites here, but it is a gorgeous place for primitive camping in Flathead National Forest. Site 5 is closest to the lake, which is beautiful. Sites 2 to 5 are all large, but larger rigs may have trouble backing into them. Site 1 is a bit smaller but doable for us. Our 5th wheel is 30 feet long. Pads are gravel and there are picnic tables and fire rings at each site. Sign on the road says there is no turn-around for large rigs in the campground, but we used the turn-around okay with our 5th wheel. There is no dump station or water at the campground, so be aware of that before you head into the forest. Doris Lake and Lost Johnny Point campgrounds have both and are within a few miles either way of Lost Johnny campground. Rate reflects our Senior Pass discount.

Campground is about six kilometers east of Waterton Lakes National Park. There is a wonderful view of the mountains from this campground. The problem is the amperage for the electricity. The service is 30 amp, but it is a very weak 30 amps. It was cold and rainy while we were here. Usually, we run 2 portable electric heaters on 30 amps to keep us warm, but we couldn’t run even one of the heaters without losing power. The park is nice, though, and the grounds are well-maintained. If you plan to be here when neither heat or air conditioning is needed, it’s a great place to camp at while visiting Waterton Lakes National Park.
