This RV park is a gravel lot with less than a handful of small trees, a dirty pond with the tent area surrounding the pond, a tiny building with a restroom and shower, no laundry. In the back of the park is a small cage with two goats that tried to head-butt my dogs, but my kids loved them. The Wi-Fi was really good and reliable. Is this park worth $30 per night? Absolutely not! $20 would be overpriced, but there's so little competition in the area that I guess they can get away with it. The RV park is for sale. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice gravel park, friendly staff, good utilities. Near a store, restaurant and Bluff Fort. We had a quiet, pleasant stay. Pond at park has water fowl, frogs and turtles. It is located centrally between Monument Valley, Hovenweep National Monument, Four Corners, and Natural Bridges. Appears to be the best place in Bluff. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of our favorite RV parks set in an interesting area of SW Utah. The park, with a nice view of red bluffs, has gravel sites with modern full-service hookups, and a picnic table with each site. The RV's are fairly well spaced. The Wi-Fi service has been improved since we stayed here a year ago. This is a quiet park in a pleasant rural setting. We have stayed several times before and will likely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We’ve stayed here several times. The guests have always been quiet and friendly, mostly older folks. We considered trying a different campground this trip, but of the other two options, one looked pretty bad from the road and the other was closed. The gravel spaces, all pull-throughs, are level, each with a picnic table and (most) with small shade trees, and are large enough to park a vehicle beside your trailer. The small pond that a previous reviewer found choked with weeds is cleaned up, and being utilized by ducks, grebes, and other birds. The restroom facilities are rather novel, but work well. There is a stucco building with a creaky floor that feels almost like a trailer floor; it has a small central reading room with couch & chairs, pay phone, and book shelf. Surrounding the central room are the doors to four separate, clean, home-style restrooms with about 1950s décor, each with toilet, sink, and small shower stall. These facilities are more than adequate for the campground, which has only a couple of dozen spaces. The Cadillac Ranch is currently for sale by the daughter of the owner, who had passed away since we last stayed here. I hope someone steps up and buys this little campground, and keeps it going. We stayed with electric only. On-site water was available during the day, but had to be turned off at night due to freezing temperatures. We paid $27 (two nights at $55). This would be my pick when we come to Bluff again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Its hard to put a review together for this park, simply because there were some good things about it, and then some odd things that just left us kind of puzzled. The park is tiny, only about 15 RV sites and then some tent sites separated by the: "pond" (more on that later). The sites will accommodate bigger rigs plus a tow vehicle. There is a portable type building that has 4 shower/toilet stalls; water pressure was great, cleanliness was average, but I think it was more age that made it appear so-so. The manager (maybe owner) was pleasant and gave us a map and recommended some sightseeing in the area. The town is tiny, not many services beyond a gas station and a couple places to eat, but we stayed here as a stop over to see Monument Valley. Now the odd stuff. There is a pond in the middle of the property that has a few ducks, but is pretty overgrown with shrubs. There were some old paddle boats stacked up at the back of the property, so I think at one time it was a usable attraction, and if it was cleaned up a bit it would be pleasant to walk around or sit and enjoy some quiet time. There is a pen beyond the pond that houses an emu. Again, probably meant as an attraction at one time, but like the pond just seemed to have been overlooked and forgotten. Would stay here again if we were just passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground. It is evident that the owners have worked hard to upgrade this small but adequate facility. The Red Bluffs surrounding it only added to its charm. Benches were placed all around so you could sit out and enjoy the delightful views. Glad we discovered it and will definitely stay again if we are in the area. Attendant was very pleasant and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice, quiet park in a nice quiet town. Across from The Fort which is the attraction in this historic town. Sites were level and utilities were good. Owners are working to improve this park. I would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Paid $27.75 a night, $25 + 11% tax, a bit high side in our opinion. The town itself does not have much in it. We used this place as a base to see Monument Valley, Four Corners and Valley of the Gods. The first two are pretty good drives to get to. The site was ok, a 50 amp FHU with Wi-Fi that was usually good. At times it could be pretty slow. No Verizon broadband here. TV via batwing was very good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not fancy but great value! Owners are on site and very helpful for things to see and do. Gravel, level sites with easy hookups. Caterpillar infestation killed off a few trees but there is some shade. Bulrushes cleared out of pond and while we were there a flock of White-faced Ibis were there along with a newly hatched family of Coots. This campground is a great central point to explore the 4 Corners area. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The sites were level with easy access and the hookups were good. Some trees are planted between camp sites but the sites and roadway are basically gravel. Local TV reception is very good. The camp host was very friendly & knowledgeable about the surrounding area, and the campground is conveniently situated to use as a base camp. There is a nice view of the local red mountains. The host had good materials to help planning local sightseeing. The campground is easy off the highway, but very quiet at night. There is no grocery store in town, only a convenience store. Bluff Fort is a driveway away, and you can tour it for free and learn some local history. Watch the film as it is enlightening. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Say's that there are shade trees. Well ours was dead. Site was level and the park was quite. Pond was full of cattails and reeds, couldn't see much of the water. Prior comments about paddle boat rental but not now as you couldn't get the boat into the water. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The sites are nice but there isn't much grass, something to which our dogs had to adapt. The bathroom arrangement is unusual. There is a large common room with four smaller rooms opening onto it. The small rooms each has a toilet and a shower but are not designated as being for men or women. The bathrooms were clean but older. The campground also has two cute billy goats and a wary emu. Basic supplies and gasoline can be purchased in town but prices are high. It was fine for a couple of days. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very friendly park and a nice stop for a restful evening. We wanted dinner out and was directed to Bluff City Cafe, 281 E. Main St. We had the best Indian Fry Bread and soup we have ever had. We camped here in a Motorhome.
All pull through RV sites with full hookups. Gravel sites and very level and easy hook ups. This is typical southwest fare. The hardscape decorations with trees on some sites, picnic tables on all and a great pond with frogs and bulrushes and benches to enjoy the pond. The folks that run it are full of local info on places to see and there is a lot more than you would imagine. Started with 2 days and stayed for five. And a couple of blocks away at Twin Rocks Cafe...you must try the Navajo Tacos! We will return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Surprising little park, level, gravel, parking lot style sites. Good utilities and Wi-Fi. Pond and trees in front of sites. Clean, quiet, but can get strong winds suddenly. No prairie dogs, and only 1 emu now. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very well kept RV park. Some shade trees but sites w/ satellite avail. Pull throughs w/ good utilities. Interesting town, ask owner for info./map. Some very nice homes built in the 1880's. Great place to eat on left/north side of town next to a very quality gift shop. Would stay here again.. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice park set in the middle of a very interesting area in Southeastern Utah. The RV's are nicely spaced. All the hook-ups work and are easy to reach. The sites are easy to drive into and are level. There is a small spring-fed pond nearby with trees, picnic tables. A pleasant place to have an evening's libation or a picnic supper. The managers are conversant on the surrounding area and can give good information on hikes or rides to see nearby ruins of Indian dwellings. We enjoy this park; it is our third visit, and no doubt we will stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not a place you'd want to make an extended stay, but it has acceptable facilities. Wi-Fi is inconsistent. We don't use cable so don't care about it, but Wi-Fi is important and we rarely get decent service. All that being said, we'd stop here again because nice, nice folks run this place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a no frills RV park / campground. But clean and nice and great staff. Sites were level and some shade. Nice pond with benches to sit and enjoy the serenity. You need to go to the back area and say hi to the two goats and two ostriches. Some show no sewer connections. There are those connections. And Wi-Fi was just fine. Not lavish but a good place and best place in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice small campground. Some residents are construction workers who leave early in the morning. Very convenient to Monument Valley, 1 hour south. Bathroom is fine, large room with shower, sink, toilet. Helpful staff. Bring supplies, although there is a small stop n go with ice, beer, some food. Several restaurants in "town". Diesel available. We camped in a fifth wheel. It was windy when we were there so no bugs, although there is a small pond right next to the camping area. Tent sites are very close to the pond. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good small park with friendly staff, everything works well, rates modest, clear path for my two satellite dishes, likely the best park in town. It would have to have a few more amenities to rate a 10, but this is a solid 9, for me. Even though it was very hot here the park was fairly full most days, so book ahead. Right in the middle of a lot of sights like Monument Valley, Hovenweep, the famous Goosenecks on the Colorado, and way more. Did I mention it is hot here in July? We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here last year and wanted to return to the area and this nice campground. It is a great base to see the many attractions in this area. The manager has a couple that are off the regular map and is happy to share. Very friendly and helpful. Sites are typical southwest fare with some trees. Convenient utilities, level and long pullthrus, good water pressure and great wifi. Nice little pond in the tent area with benches and you must meet Elvis and Elvira. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a wonderful little park. It has lots of space, is clean with friendly staff. It is quiet, with some shade. There is good power. The only downside was the wifi was not working. If ever passing by again, we would stay there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large level sites, water pressure was at 65 psi and the electricity and sewer were very good. It was very windy while here and we were glad to have the area graveled. Verizon was iffy, sometimes we had a strong signal and some times we couldn’t even get one bar. We were parked in the last site at the end of the park and couldn’t get the parks Wi-Fi signal but we had no problems getting our dome satellite in. Owners and staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. Kids would probably like the fishing pond and the Emu that were in a pen. We would stay here again, nice little park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This quiet park provides good utilities, level gravel pads and clean but worn shower facilities. Access is easy both into the park and into the pull-through sites. Trees between sites offer some shade but no privacy. The park’s Wi-Fi service was good; AT&T phone reception was good in this area. The price reflects the weekly discount. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We really enjoyed this quiet park. The owners/operators were very friendly and helpful, they provided us with information on several local cliff dwellings and historical sites. The bathrooms were extremely clean and a pleasure to use as the sinks and toilets are in the same room as the shower (not shared). The sites are gravel, covered, level, and large enough to configure the awning, picnic table, and parking to personal preference. One of the more pleasant campsites we've stayed at in southern Utah for the price. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
My wife and I have spent 6 days in this campground and we quite like it. It is peaceful, quiet, and the manager is super-friendly and helpful. The campground is very basic, no laundry facilities, and it is located in a very small town with few amenities. However, it is very conveniently positioned for day trips to places like Monument Valley, the Valley of the Gods, the Moki Dugway, Muley Point, Mexican Hat, Hovenweep, Shiprock, the Four Corners Monument, Natural Bridges National Monument, Mesa Verde National Park, etc. There is SO MUCH to see around here!! Bring enough food for the days you expect to be in the area or shop at places like Shiprock or Cortez, as you can only get basic groceries at the local grocery store in Bluff. You can see the bluffs and Twin Rocks from the park. The wireless Internet works quite well (better than in other parks we have visited) with no interruptions. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The previous poster must love the huge mega resorts and this didn't meet his expectations and I'm sorry. As you can see, this is a small campground in a beautiful, but small town. There are 2 wonderful and 1 exceptional restaurants, Bluff Fort across the street, a museum quality Native American gallery and a small grocery at the Sinclair station. The people at the campground are friendly and helpful and the place is spotless. Look forward to staying here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the middle of NOWHERE! STAY IN MONTICELLO! There isn't even a grocery store nearby! The park offers nothing to do, no information on the amenities in the nearby area, and is so remote, you probably can't wait to leave the next morning! In addition, the showers are so dark and dingy, we were scared to venture into them. Donkeys brayed nearby all night keeping us awake. This was NOT a good experience! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Comfortable and quiet. Excellent spot to visit all the area sites such as Valley of the Gods, Monument Valley, etc. Wi-Fi a bit spotty. Bluff is a very small town with limited services but includes a restaurant, gas station, market, etc. Good customer service from owner/manager. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very remote area, but convenient to Monument Valley. The nearest grocery store or drug store, is 50 miles away, so be prepared. There is NO TV reception at all with antenna. Scrabble game was convenient. Nothing else here to do. Does have some small shade trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access, large pull-thru sites. Very quiet. Staff friendly and helpful. We stayed 3 nights and were able to see the area and collect our forwarded mail. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A strip of gravel with spaces divided by a small tree and a picnic table greet you at Cadillac Ranch! But, the spaces are plenty long, though not private in the least, and you will be facing a peaceful, tree lined pond. The management is super nice and helpful and the park is pretty quiet. Even with the sparseness, it rises head and shoulders above the other parks we saw in Bluff and Blanding! There is NO cable TV as advertised, but I understand you can receive 6 Salt Lake stations via antenna. I don’t know about satellite. The WiFi is sometimes slow, but works well most of the time. No pool but there are bathrooms and showers available. The park is right across the highway from old Fort Bluff: a must see. The fort is being reconstructed on it’s original spot and there are several buildings that are original. The Visitor’s center is also in that location. Tiny town, nice people and a quiet place to stay. $55 for two nights. Works for big rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice facility, in fact it is the nicest for miles around. The owner is friendly and very easy to work with. There is a nice duck pond that has a walking path around it. The owner recently purchased the park and is keeping the price down by not offering discounts. ($25 for this park is a great price!) Sites are roomy and with good gravel in all. Hookups are excellent. There is no cable TV and the WiFi is not reliable nor fast. When it worked, it was marginal and most of the time it didn't. Also the owner had mules in an adjoining field and she keeps the males separated from the females so the result is them baying at each other through the night. While this is the best park for miles, with cable TV and decent WiFi, it would be super. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were going to stay at Gooseneck State Park and would have but no one was there. While we don't like crowds, we at least like someone in case of emergency or intruder alerts, so we moved on. Anyway we were quite pleased with this park: the layout, the cleanliness and the owner's attitude, very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very clean, well kept campground. All RV sites are large and level and all the pull throughs had plenty of room to get in and out. There's a nice small pond with ducks, a good view of surrounding scenery, and a variety of animals in back. Each site has a picnic table, grill and a tree. Rate reflects weekly price. Had excellent ATT cell service and good Verizon internet card service. As noted with other reviews, stock up before coming here. You will have to go to Blanding, about 20 miles to get LP. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I spent 10 days at this campground while exploring the Four Corners area. While the campground is located on US-191, the sites are behind the owner's residence and road noise is not a problem. The location between bluffs lining the San Juan River tends to trap heat, so be aware that it may be quite warm here in the summer months. The WiFi service provided has poor signal strength and large motorhomes can easily block the signal to other RV's parked at the end of the row of sites. During several warm days I experienced low (106 volts) voltage on the park's 30 ampere service, indicating a possible need for an upgrade of the power service. Other than these minor problems, this was a secure small park with a very homey feel to it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Charlie was very nice on the phone. Enjoyed my 2 weeks here. No laundry you have to drive down the street a few blocks. The small pond is stocked for the kids. Gravel roads with trees. Lot's of animals kept in the back for the kids to see. Very friendly park. Not much to do in town. But close to several attractions and a great base camp. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet, clean campground. Beautiful surroundings. Close to Valley of the Gods, Moki Dugway, Muley Point, Mexican Hat (San Juan Inn has fabulous Navajo tacos), and Monument Valley. No laundry facilities on site, but there is a laundromat 3 blocks away. W-fi adequate. Very friendly, helpful staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a quiet park, the sites are plenty wide and long, gravel, and fairly level (had to use a board on one side to level). The bluffs surrounding the town are pretty. The owners are very nice. The bathrooms are clean. The park serves its purpose, but there aren't many extras such as laundry or pool. The WIFI only worked one-third of the time. There is no cable TV, but you can pick up a few local stations with your antenna. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We over-nighted here. Sites and roads on good gravel. The sites are wide and a 40 motorhome can be accommodated. I found it difficult to turn into the sites with a big rig and not hit the branches of trees planted between each site. Some trimming near the bottom would be helpful. It would be better to detach your toad before pulling into a site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Yeah ! This is a really nice park. Small, in a town that I don't think even had a place to eat, so take food! I stopped here years ago when they first opened, and really liked the people who owned it. Then again a couple years later, and to my surprise, the owners called me by name. Then last summer, and believe it or not, they remembered me by name again. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This is a delightful and serene oasis in the beautiful rock country near Monument Valley. This well-kept campground has colorful plantings of flowers as well as green grass, park benches with soft post lights along the fishing pond. The nightly rate quoted on the Bluff, UT, website is outdated and the owners have requested it be changed for the past 5 years. We have paid more for a less desirable campsite so price was not an issue for us. Each site has gravel, a shade tree, and picnic table. The trees do not interfere with satellite reception. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As small parks go this one is very good. The office staff is friendly and helpful. When we discovered the site we were assigned was not clean the office immediately changed sites for us and headed out to do a clean-up. Sites are wide and level but no visual separation between them. No cable but you can get 5 channels over the air. Good base camp for all the Four Corners attractions. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found this to be overall one of the best small campgrounds we've stayed in. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and the campground was meticulously clean and well-kept. It is a good "basic" campground, not many amenities. The $19 average daily rate included taxes and a weekly-rate discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice place with easy access and quiet. Modem access 24 hrs but part of pay phone so both can't be used at same time. Nice management and plenty to do in area. Will come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
Nice clean campground. The owner, is a warm, friendly lady who helped me with the RV awning when the wind suddenly whipped up. Campground is near Monument Valley & 4 Corners. Lots to do in the area. RV Park has fishing pond (no license required) & paddle boating is permitted. Very clean & well maintained park. Nice place to stay! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is one of those CGs you either like or don't. Not many frills, but a great place to stay while exploring the Four Corners area. Approximately 20 miles from the Valley of the Gods, 40 miles from Monument Valley, 50 miles from Hovenweep Nat'l Monument. Side trips up Butler Wash, to Muley Point and Dugway Point are musts. Also near numerous uncatagorized Anazazi ruins and petroglyph panels. Sites and access road are gravel with minimal landscaping. Small pond that the owners have stocked with trout and catfish which can be fished for free. Owners are very helpful in assisting sight seeing plans. We camped here in a camper.
Rate reflects the weekly rate. Campground is mostly gravel and dirt and the spaces are pretty level. Picnic table and a fire ring are at each site. Wi-Fi is available for free, but is weak in the spaces furthest from the office. It was OK for our use, but not for streaming movies etc. Little to no Verizon data service. Overall the campground is in very good condition. Very friendly owner is also quite knowledgeable of the surrounding areas for both tourist stuff and off-road info. Very quiet and peaceful atmosphere. The Bluff Fort visitor center and museum is excellent and a must see when you are in the area. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped at Cottonwood RV Park from 5/18/14 to 06/04/14. The park and restrooms were all spotless and the owner was so helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent place to relax - beautiful surroundings and the park owner is extremely friendly and courteous. The spaces at the front of the park are nice and spaciouswith picnic tables at each spot and trees throughout the park. Lots of room and beautiful views of the bluffs. We stayed here one night in 2012. Decided to come back and stay a week. Bluff is a very historic town with several neat places to eat. We will definitely go back here to kick back and relax. Very quiet area with no road noise. Close to Natural Bridges, Valley of the Gods, and Goosenecks State Park. Blanding is only 25 miles away where there's the Edge of the Cedars and Dinosaur museum. We would highly recommend this park. Just good people! We camped here in a Motorhome.
It's a place to stay while traveling between say Moab and Monument Valley, or to go to the nearby National Monument (ruins) It's clean, it's quiet, it's OK. Nothing special, nothing bad, just solid OK We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an o.k. park for one night, but wouldn't want to stay any longer, it's truly in the middle of nowhere. Looked much better than the RV Park on the other end of town. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The lots were gravel, but were level. The staff were friendly. The Wi-Fi was very weak. We had to go to the office area to receive and transmit emails. The staff were very friendly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We arrived and was able to choose any site. Very quiet RV park with no road noise. Do not waste your time and money going to Monument Valley. Instead, drive the 17 mile road of the Valley of the Gods. The girl in the office is very helpful with sites to see in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy access, off the highway, very big rig friendly. Nice big sites, all had tables. No cable but the TV reception was excellent (tower just above the camp). Excellent central location for touring the area. No issues with the services, 50 amp was good. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Small and very quiet park. Sign on door said to pick your spot and they would contact you. There was a map and spots were easy to locate and very level. This park had everything we needed for an overnight stay. Would highly recommend and will stay here again on our next trip through the area. The $30 rate includes tax. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We normally stay at the Cadillac Ranch in Bluff, but they were full. We got one of the last spots here and were very pleased. The owners were very pleasant and the site was large and level. The steak house in Bluff is also a short walk away. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Spacious pull-through sites, which my husband pronounced perfectly level...a first! Beautiful cliffs across the San Juan River make you forget you are basically in a gravel parking lot, but the owners are obviously trying to add shade and make it more scenic. Very nice owners. Showers were just fine. We found the Wi-Fi to be OK as was the antenna TV. Liked the spot, but services are quite limited in Bluff. Had to go on to Blanding for propane, but we would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice park. Spacious sites and beautiful views. No TV but who cares, we were there to rest and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Owner was very nice. Park is extremely clean and interior roads are well kept. Will definitely return when we're in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed 7 days/nights. Gravel sites and interior roads. Very level and each site has a picnic tables. Wi-Fi is very slow. Verizon reception is very marginal. Nice and quiet other then dogs outside of the park barking. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed in this park for one night. We had a large pull through site that was gravel but level. Most sites have shade and picnic tables The owner was very nice and the park is very clean. The bathrooms and showers are spacious and very clean. Wi-Fi is available but very slow. This park could easily be used as a base camp when visiting Arches and Canyonland. Even being located right off US 191 it is very quiet in the evening. We more than likely would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice, well-maintained park with long gravel pull throughs and easy in, easy out for big rigs and plenty of space between sites. Very clean bathrooms. Wi-Fi is strong and fast during the day, but slows significantly in the evening when the park is populated. Good playground. Friendly owner. Nice view of high bluffs. No light at night allows a good view of stars. We would rate this park a ten except that the owner is operating more than one business and is sometimes out of the office. There is a Sinclair station about one-half mile away that sells ultra-low Sulphur diesel (15 ppm) and basic groceries (milk, eggs, potatoes, canned vegetable and fruits, some frozen foods, etc.). There is a laundromat across from the Sinclair. For a larger grocery store (closed on Sunday), drive 25 miles to Blanding. There is a lot to see and do within approximately an hour’s drive, so do your homework to decide what you want to do. Monument Valley and Natural Bridges are both about one-hour drives. About 25 minutes to Gooseneck State Park which is a must-see, but do not drive on highway 261 beyond Gooseneck Park (it becomes narrow with deep drop-offs, steep hills, sharp curves, loose gravel; signs warning trucks, trailers, and RVs to stay off). We would definitely stay at Cottonwood RV Park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our first stay in Bluff & we were pleasantly surprised at the way the owners are maintaining the park. Our greeting upon check-in was quite friendly & we will definitely return to this park again. Even though there is no Cable TV per se, there is a repeater here in the park that allows access to seventeen digital TV Channels. The Wi-Fi signal during our stay could have been stronger but the speed was satisfactory & we had no problems with it. The Wi-Fi service is free. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park host was very nice, and waited for us to arrive after their closing time. The park is a gravel lot, with small trees. Easy to navigate, and easy for big rigs. The Wi-Fi was poor, and very slow. It did work, but not very well. I would stay here again when visiting the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here two nights on a trip to see the National Parks in Utah. What we discovered on our trip is many parks in this part of the world close on Oct 31st but this one stays open until the middle of November. It appears to be a relatively new park - the sites are all pull thrus with plenty of room for big slide outs. Some of the sites have trees - mostly young. It will be a while until there is real shade here. The park is all gravel, but the sites are level. There are little islands of green here and there. The bathrooms and showers were great. There is a small basketball court and playground area for kids. There isn't much in the area so you should buy groceries before you get there. It was a good location for us. There are a lot of parks in the area to see and this is a good, central location. Originally we had thought we would stay in Monument Valley, but when I couldn't ascertain if Goulding's allowed pets from their website, we went on and found this place. It was cheaper and served our needs very well. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A nice, quiet campground centrally located for all the scenic areas of Southeastern Utah. The owner and staff are extremely friendly and know the territory to get you to all the scenic areas, including those out of the way spots. We wound up staying a week and enjoyed every minute. We would stay at Cottonwood again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Long sites, level and easy access. When I made reservations I specifically asked if their wi-fi signal would be good at the site we were assigned. We were told it would be. That is not the case. Very slow and erratic and will disconnect frequently. My Verizon air card does not work well here either. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the kind of park I relish. It's not fancy, but it's definitely on my short list of parks to go back to. This was my fourth stay, in fact. The park is roomy and relaxed, and has great views of the redrock cliffs that surround the town of Bluff. The bathrooms/showers were clean and well-maintained, the Wi-Fi worked well, and the office personnel were nice. I stayed a week, exploring the surrounding desert and canyons, and enjoyed it, but remember that lizards and ravens outnumber people here, and the town closes up tight after dark. There are no bars or traffic lights. There's one tiny grocery store. The only negative I can think of about the park itself is that there's no laundry. The one laundromat in Bluff was permanently closed earlier this year. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
There was no one in the office when we arrived, but the sign said to pick a spot and they would be back later. The shade trees are very small, but the sites are level. The bathrooms and showers are spotless. We had dinner at the Cottonwood Restaurant where they were serving up an excellant BBQ. This is a nice quiet place to stay, and we would stay here again in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The setting is absolutely beautiful! Sites are wide enough for 4 slides and large enough for big rig and toad. Wi-fi is weak but works OK most of the time. Office is generally not staffed except evenings, and cafe where we were told to find help was not open when we did need something. We stopped for one night and spent three nights. Restroom/shower area is very clean though not fancy. Sites and roads are gravel, very close to level, and in good condition. Attractive landscaping and decor. Owner was very nice and informative about things in the area. There are nearby restaurants and shops, but limited in number and all local. While here we visited Arches NP and Goosenecks SP, but there was much more we could have done. We would return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is FHU 50 amp daily rate with no discounts. Gravel roads and sites. Very little shade. Off street so little traffic noise, what traffic there is in Bluff. Restrooms and showers are immaculate. A little pricey for what you get, but not much to choose from in the area. This was the third time we have stayed at this park in three years, and the reason is mostly for convenience to things we want to see in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Although full hookups were available, and some modest shade from trees between some sites, this is otherwise a desert no-frills campground. It is OK as a base camp for the Monument Valley/Four Corners area. It was clean, scenic, and quiet. The town has a population of 300, a gas station, 3 eateries, 2 Indian merchandise shops, and 2 multipurpose 7/11 type stores. Most are well-worn, and it would be best to restock before landing here. We were told that few camp here in July, but that August and September were "busy". We were the only campers in the park on the 2-night weekend. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I liked this funky little park. I stayed a week, and have no qualms about going back. If you want fancy, you won't find it here, but what you get works. But that's true of the town of Bluff in general. Very limited town facilities, so make sure your groceries and things are well-stocked before you get here. Nice views of the surrounding cliffs. Reasonably quiet for traffic noise. The owner/manager was very nice. The Wi-Fi worked fine. There is an excellent steakhouse within walking distance. The menu isn't extensive, but the food is great and the atmosphere homey and comfy. It's only open in the summer months, however. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park has different camping areas and some provide nice shade and others are totally in the sun. Tent sites looked very nice. The park could use a little maintenance but is OK. The owner is very friendly and helpful and could answer questions about the area. There is a steak house, cafe and laundry within walking distance. Wi-fi worked very well. There were sand fleas and we got many bites. Would stay at another park in the area next time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We like this park. In fact, we extended our stay to 4 nights because of its quiet ambiance and the views. First, sites are full service, level, and easy to get into. But the best thing, as far as we are concerned, is the great front-and-back views of the bluffs/cliffs. It is really nice! Other parks in town have most of their pull-through sites going absolutely the wrong way, so you are looking into your neighbors windows and down the valley, rather than at the pretty bluffs. The bathrooms are plain, but spotless with large showers. The WiFi works very well throughout the park, among the best we've had in 1 month of travel. It is in reasonable driving distance of Monument Valley, Gooseneck, Valley of the Gods, and even the Natural Bridges. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
No frills but helpful host. Nice long pull throughs. Wi-Fi works very well. Verizon Cell phone doesn't work here. But that isn't the park's problem. We stayed two nights. At this time of year 50 amp hook-up is a must. Folks who live in the desert need their air conditioning!!! We camped here in a Motorhome.
It has been stated, nothing fancy, but a great inexpensive place to stay. We were there 3 nights. We stay here usually twice a year to and from SD to AZ. We will stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Stayed here overnight on our way through town. The views surrounding the park are beautiful, however the park itself is really nothing special. Owner was very nice. WiFi is available if you walk around the corner to the cafe on the highway owned by the same people. I didn't really consider this as having Wifi available to the park. We stayed at this park because the TL directory stated they had a playground, and we have small kids. It was a pretty lousy playground to say the least. Old, falling apart and very rickety. We thought the park was a little expensive for what we got, but it worked for an overnight stay. Don't think we'd stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fantastic views out our back window!! Nothing fancy here, but you get what you need. We spent 5 nights seeing the sites of the area. Lower elevation than surrounding area so the nights were warmer. No cell phone service (Verizon) except out by the highway, same with the WiFi. Owner is very nice and accommodating. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A great park with a wonderful owner. Large, level and long pull through sites. 50 amp service. Full hook ups. About 2 blocks off the highway, between the road and the San Juan River. Very Quite. Immaculate bath house. A pet friendly park with a small playground for children. The perfect base camp for day trips to Monument Valley, The Valley of The Gods, Hovenweep Ruins National Monument, Goosenecks State park, Wolfman Petroglyph Panel, Butler Wash, Sand Island, Goulding’s Lodge, Moki Dugway and The Edge of the Cedars State Park and Museum. We camped there for 8 nights in two 5th wheels, 1 motorhome, a van camper and 3 travel trailers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Beautiful spot. Cottonwoods were just leafing out so we had shade and privacy. Sites are large and mostly level. Loop road could use some work but it is not really a problem. A bit of noise from the road but the traffic diminished to almost nothing during the night. Lots of geological features to explore nearby, including Comb Ridge which is quite impressive. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects senior discount. Dry camping, but with water spigots scattered throughout campground. Sites are nicely spaced and with good foliage in between. Pit toilets were clean. Interesting petroglyphs can be seen on a nearby rock wall. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very large sites. Weak phone signal, but usable. Quiet except for the bridge noise on Hwy 191. Had no problem getting our 40' MH in. Water available at the sign-in kiosk. Take off spot for rafters near the main building. Loop A is for tents, loop B for bigger rigs. All dirt roads so the dusty got to be a problem when the wind picked up. We paid the senior price of $5 per night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were not able to stay at this park due to being full. I did not change the rating to "NO" on Big Rig accessible, but please note there is a large Cottonwood Tree on the loop turn that is low hanging. It took out a skylight on our 5er which is 12'9" tall. You can swing way wide to avoid it as long as the road is dry. There are only a few spots to accommodate a long rig. The "pull-through" spots are wide spots in the road, without a picnic table or easy access to "yard". We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A nice, well laid out BLM campground. Many sites will handle a medium sized rig and a few will handle a big rig. There is a fresh water spigot adjacent to the "iron ranger" fee collection pedestal, but there is no dump station. Verizon was a sometimes thing. If you have big iron, be sure to follow the signs to Campground "B". Campground A will work fine for tenters or small towables. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Big rig sites are just OK. There are quiet and shaded spots. A water hydrant is at park entrance for filling tank. Verizon was weak but worked. A few sites would be OK for a roof mounted satellite dish. Golden Access price is what is shown. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great BLM campground with some sites right on the San Juan River. No hookups or other extras, but who needs them in this beautiful setting. Pit toilets were clean and odor free. Since previous reviews the campground has been upgraded with many large sites suitable for any size RV. Most sites have shade. If you don't need hookups, this is the place to stay in Bluff. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great site for boon-docking. Primitive sites with no hookups. However, the isolation, view, nearby river access, and trees make this a wonderful place to stay for a night or two. The larger sites are limited. Get there early rather than later in the day. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We almost stayed at Cadillac Ranch up the road, but opted to boondock instead. We weren't disappointed. AWESOME view of the canyons and along the river, you can't beat it for the price. We had no problem accessing it in our 24' 5er, but larger rigs might be tricky as there are only about 4 spots that can accommodate RVs, the rest are for cars. The only downside: it's very hot here in July, and the bugs, will come through your screens! Otherwise, fabulous place to hang out for a bit. Pump well water is available, that's it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you don't mind Boondocking this is a nice park to visit. Sits along the San Juan River and within 50 yards is a large Petroglyph panel. Sites a sand/dirt, some shaded. Most are relatively level and a couple could accomdate large rigs. Water is available but no dump station or showers. We camped here in a camper.
