12 Parks near Jacob Lake, Arizona
Jul 2016 - $36.00
Only full hookups available on North Rim, so location, location, location. Quiet, in Ponderosa pine forest, 1.25 miles to Jacob Lake Inn, large forested area to walk dogs. Very friendly staff. - Floatsflyer

Campground doesn't offer much other than proximity to the North Rim and some nice Ponderosa pines. Bumpy dirt road access. Pit showers and pay showers - no thank you. No WiFi and spotty at best Verizon. Sites VERY close. We arrived the day they opened for the season so most sites were empty still. Our site proved difficult to get into, super close to what we knew would be someone else's slide right at our front door (3' away), and it was very hard to find level, but the seasonal attendant guy wouldn't let us move to a more spacious site - took the attitude that he was clearly doing us a favor for the privilege of letting us stay here. We would not return. - Jolly Out There

Lots of shade, Ponderosa Pines. Tight spaces, more or less level. We stopped here on the way to the North Rim and left at sun-up. - Clyde Clevenger

Park is 25 miles south of Jacob's Lake and about 18 miles to the North Rim Lodge. Typical NFS campground. Host was very pleasant and helpful. A few of the sites are big enough for a large RV. We stayed in site 13 and I could of easily parked a 40 ft rig on that site. Some of sites are not very level and some sites are pretty small. We were there on the weekend and the campground was full by mid afternoon. Half the sites are can be reserved and the other half are first come first served. - DennisA

This is a US Forest Service campground that makes a nice alternative to the one campground inside the National Park at the North Rim. The campground is set in a lovely ponderosa pine and aspen forest and is about 5 miles from the park boundary. It's another 15-20 miles or so to the Visitor Center and Lodge located at the rim itself. The sites are very spacious and many are pull-throughs that can accommodate any size rig. There are no hook-ups, dump stations, showers or flush toilets, but the campground is pretty and peaceful. The vault toilets were spotless and practically odorless. The camp host was very friendly and conscientious about the upkeep of the campground. While it would have been nice to have stayed in the park, we weren't able to get reservations in time for our visit so DeMotte made a nice alternative. Our rate reflects the use of our Senior Access Pass. - BruceandKathyWA

Nicely maintained NFS campground, basic but pleasant. Rate based on senior discount. Camp host couple was friendly and effective. - SeeTheUSA

We spent 5 nights here because we couldn't get in to the Grand Canyon North Rim Campground. We really enjoyed our stay in spite of the 40-mile (one-way) drive to the canyon. We spent at least half the days driving and hiking on National Forest land near the canyon rim but outside the park. The camp hosts were very friendly and helpful and the sites were beautiful and spacious. The pit toilets were always clean and fresh smelling (good job!). - Desert Beacon

There are no facilities; no power, no water, no sewer. For $10 you get a space to park next to 89A. You are right by national forest land where you can boondock for free, without putting up with noise and campfire smoke from neighbors.
The camp hosts are quite organized and good. The trees make satellite reception hard. - sfrantz

First stayed here last May in a tent. It was cold. This year I brought my travel trailer. Thank goodness because it was even colder. Whatever the weather May and September are the best months if you want to avoid the crowds at the Grand Canyon. Last year I came without reservations and had no problems. Tried it again this year and got the last first come/first served site. I love this park. So I now recommend making reservations. Vault or so called "sweet smelling toilets" were very clean. Pit toilets are rarely found except in very primitive areas any more. Thank goodness. Showers are available at the RV park across the road. There is no dump in the area and this is a pain. We dumped at Kanab, Utah. - NT2013

Good for a one night stay. Pull-thru's are really close. All gravel sites that are very close to Hwy 89A. Traffic noise can be a problem. Also easy access for anyone to enter from the street to your site. Nice walking distance to the town and grocery store if needed. Satellite reception was good. No cable. - hawkandmegan

This is a small park. Nice. Gravel sites as they are in the "High Desert." Friendly staff. Some street noise, but not enough to be a problem. I will stay here again when in the area. - Green Bay Mike

We loved this RV park and the owner is delightful. It was immaculate. Throughout the campground, there were chairs and tables where you can sit and relax. Although it does not offer cable, for us that is pretty much of an incidental issue, particularly as over-the-air digital aerial was available. After dinner we walked much the town and passed each of the other campgrounds, none of which seemed to compare to Kanab RV Corral. - dandd

This is a barely adequate park for a stay in a beautiful area of Utah. The park is poorly maintained. The roads are rough, the hookups are antiquated. For example the sewer openings are covered with stones; the 30 amp hookups consisted of two legs hod hot wires from a 50 amp hookup. One leg for each side-to-side head-to-tail parked camper. If you turned of electric on one camper, you turned off electric to both campers. On the plus side, the Wi-Fi service was superb - fast and easy, totally accessible. We would probably stay here again, as good RV Parks are difficult to come by in the Kanab area. With a little effort this park could upgrade itself to being more than barely adequate. - hoppytoad

Even though we reserved our week here, they put us in a "Pull-in" site that required 32 feet of sewer hose and 25 feet of power cable.
The place worked for what we needed, but the inconvenience wasn't necessary. Oh, with all the scenery here, our view was the business next door. WiFi was good as was 30AMP. - magic

The campground needs a little love. Shabby is a good description. Two of us in separate RVs were here. My friend couldn't get her rig in the reserved spot because of a tree, so she was moved to another that was so unlevel that the rear axle of her rig was off the ground.
When I arrived, the put me near her, not next to her as requested. Wifi was good.
Permanent residents were a bit sketchy.
The sour note for us was after we had been there four nights, we wanted to extend our stay so we could enjoy the area longer. I asked if we could add three more nights and get the weekly rate and was told no.
I understand it was perfectly in their right to not offer a deal, but in the interest of customer service, it would have been nice. The park only had half a dozen sites occupied, and I'm sure they'd rather have sites used at a reduced rate rather than leave them empty.
We left for another park up the road when our four nights were up. - Doggie Mom

As others have mentioned, these are 2 sites set quite a bit away from everything else in the park. Which makes them very quiet and secluded! The roads were easy to navigate with a larger rig, the site was level and the hook ups were easy. The only complicating issue was a handrail at the back of the pad. I don't know why it was there, but you had to make sure your rig was skirting the opposite edge of the pad if you had rear slides to deploy. The scenery was breathtaking but we didn't get to enjoy it as much as we had hoped due to the swarms of mosquitoes. - wookiemouse

As other reviewers noted, it's wilderness camping with full hook-up. The scenery is of breathtaking beauty. This being an RV park with only two sites, it's difficult to find a more private RV park than here. If you happen to have quiet neighbors on the other site, the peace and serenity is hard to beat.
The RV park is inside and part of Angel Canyon, the home of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. So many things the RV park itself lacks (like a shop, restrooms, WiFi access, cabins, cottages and more) are available in other parts of the sanctuary's wide spread facilities. However, it is about 1 mile from the park to the sanctuary's visitor center. So since this is an RV park review, the following comments only refer to the RV park itself.
The correct coordinates for the entrance of the park are Lat. 37.11387 and Long. -112.54805.
Info for big rigs: the length of site #1's concrete pad is 29.5 ft. between the front end and where the rear tires hit the stopper (27.5 ft. for site #2). There is 19 ft. space from the stopper to the fence, so even a sizeable overhang should fit in (12 ft. for site #2).
Communication: WiFi signal from the close-by cabins is too weak. We tried with an outdoor WiFi booster, but to no avail. So you need to get along with cellular service. On our travels, we use T-Mobile for voice and a Verizon Jetpack for Internet. Verizon gave us 3G service inside the coach and we roamed with our phones over AT&T with about two bars. However, for a solid phone call we needed to get out of the coach. Only after we installed our cell phone booster (with a trucker antenna), we got a faint signal from T-Mobile (too weak to be meaningfull, though), but 4-5 bars on AT&T and solid 4G/LTE data over Verizon.
The park is close to Kanab (10-15 minutes). We spent a whole week here and enjoyed it thoroughly. - Srdpty

We have stayed here the last two years while we volunteer at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. We love the peaceful star studded nights and beautiful canyon views during the day. You have full hook-ups, 50 amp, water, sewer and a cement pad with a small patio and picnic table next to your space. There are some Juniper trees, bushes and cacti in-between the sites but the pads are staggered so it gives you a little more privacy. Both sites are back in but easy to maneuver. Close to the highway but no street noise and nothing but peace and quiet after the sun goes down. Pet friendly but there are burrs and stickers so fur baby feet beware. Some deer pass through the sites and turkeys are nearby. We reserve site 2 as the pad is a little longer so our 45’ fits with the jacks on cement. A 15 minute ride to the town of Kanab with grocery shopping, restaurants, hardware store and post office among other things. An hour away from Zion and a bit longer to Bryce, both worth visiting. Great Verizon reception, WiFi and TV through our satellite. These sites stay full so book early. We book a year in advance. - PERRELLAS

Small (9 site) BLM campground; great dry camping for only $5 per night! No water or dump station on site, just outhouses. No cell reception; most sites could get a satellite signal, as there aren't too many trees. Important note: due to a sharp turn in the road and small sites, a sign at the entrance reads: max. trailer size 24 feet. I brought in a 26-foot trailer without any problems, but I wouldn't recommend anything over 28 feet. This makes a great base for exploring Zion National Park, and is much quieter and cheaper than staying in Sand Dunes State Park. - Neil C.

Stayed here for a couple days. Could not find a level site. When I tried to hook up my hose to the water faucet, the faucet itself leaked so bad I couldn't use it. One of the groundkeepers told me I could move or stretch my hose to another site. They have multiple sites and I was only the second camper here. The other was a volunteer for the National Monument. There is a nice, newish looking building that houses restrooms, showers and laundry as well as a community room - but I was told it was not open yet. The park itself is a large unshaded area. At least it wasn't $30 or more, which is typical of this area. - sloopygirl

Very basic campground which is not well maintained but OK for a night. Very convenient if visiting Pipe Spring National Monument (highly recommend) which is 1/4 mile away. All hook-ups worked but were not in very good condition. Restrooms were clean. No cell phone or TV but good internet (get code from camp host). Very quiet with great views of the Kanab and Kaibab Plateaus. Direction: From Rt. 389 east of Colorado City, AZ, turn north at Conoco (good gas price, no tax) to Pipe Spring NM, continue 1/4 mile to campground on right. - mvano

Monday, April 29 – Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, Utah This park is in the southwest section of Utah to the east of Zion and near Kanab. If you come out of route 9 heading east from Zion, you head south on 89 for about 4 miles than pick up route 43 for another 12 miles south. There are plenty of signs posted along the roads and the drive into the park is very nice. The park has juniper and pinion pines and steep red cliffs. Once you drive in and stop at the visitor center the ranger or hostess that checked us in was very nice and informative. The campground is just down the road and there are twenty two sites in one loop. No hookups, but water can be found at the dump station and bath house. The bath house is one of the best that we have seen in two months of traveling-very clean and updated. They do take reservations. If you don’t reserve you may have to check in every day to see if your site is still available. Our site was a nice pull through, level and shaded. What this park is known for is 1200 acres of pink sand dunes – beautiful. We even took the OHV tour offered in the parking lot through the sand dunes $$ with one other couple and a nice guide. It was a great time. I am glad we were there on a Monday, because on most weekends this park fills up with campers and day visitors, most with their own OHV’s and we heard the noise can be loud. Quiet hours start at 10 at night until 9 in the morning. When we left Zion, it was in the mid 90’s and I thought it would be unbearable here without hookups, but it wasn’t. It was cooler than Zion with a nice breeze blowing through all day. This was a one night stopover for us and we were so glad that we decided to camp here. - gsnakehill

The ride from Kenab to this park is one of the most beautiful I've driven. The park is a gem. The colors in the area are amazing. Sunset is the high-point of the experience. Trails over the dunes are good and there is an ATV trail network available. There is absolutely no communication available, but there is a pay phone at the Visitors Center. Staff was friendly. Restrooms/showers are new and great. The road into the area is narrow, but really worth the drive. - Red Wolf Deux

Only two of the showers were functional which caused some wait times to get cleaned up. These are located at the dunes and so it would be difficult to keep sand out of the showers (bring shower sandals). Sites are large and provide much privacy compared to the cramped sites of the cookie cutter resorts. Note: there is one site near the bathroom with hookups. Much ORV traffic, but quiet hours were respected. - summersj0

Hard to talk about service or cleanliness when all you do is check in and there is nothing to clean. That being said, it's a good deal. I thought the road noise would be worse, but vehicles are just rolling when they go by and in late May, there wasn't much traffic, especially at nite. Plenty of room to back in anything, levelish, and across the street to bathrooms at the hotel or c-stores. I didn't check all, but my space and a few others were only 50 amp. Fortunately, the grocery store in the next town north had an extensive (and surprising ) hardware store in the back with an RV section with a well priced adapter. Also good food at the German restaurant. Ate at both restaurants by the park, couldn't finish either meal. We were there four nights exploring Zion and felt it was a very good deal. Would stay again. - Dave n Rene

The prior reviews are accurate. Additionally:
- bathrooms are across the street (U.S. 89), no showers
- sites need to be picked up (butts and bottle caps)
- Wi-Fi poor, Verizon 1x, AT&T excellent
- access to a golf course behind the hotel and restaurant
Sites are generally flat back-ins to a creek with trees. Easy stop after a long drive and good for accessing East Zion. - Jay d

Easy sites to back into. Ours (#10) was quite level. The traffic noise was tolerable, speed was about 35 MPH so even the semis were moderate, better than a few others parks we used. Sitting, next to stream made everything OK. Great staff at motel. Area seemed under good management but only saw a few garbage collectors so really couldn't guarantee security protocols. Excellent pool, hot tub, and laundry (3 machines @ $1.75). Wi-Fi was 3-4 bars, AT&T cell was adequate. - User3698
