The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed being in the Ponderosa Pine forest and the very scenic drive to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. It was a very pleasant experience. The site was fairly level although gravel. - bdnjsmith

The sites are all very unlevel, dirt and gravel. Bring boards. 30 amp service is OK. You don't need AC here. Lots are spacious and forested.
We will not stay here again. - firsttimefulltimer

Kaibab Camper Village - Jacobs Lake AZ - 2 stars Way out of level, dirt site, 30 amp max electric ran at 110 volts most of the time, other utilities OK, no satellite reception, no Internet or cell service. As other reviewers have noted, the office staff starts their introduction to the campground with "this is the only game in town" and then proceeds to describe a bunch of rules that they then do no enforce. Tight and steep sites with little space between sites. Overpriced but only campground with any utilities in the region. About a 1 hour drive to the North Rim visitors center. Would not stay here again. - Kid911

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

Very large RV spaces, nicely shaded, most are back-in, but a few are parallel to the road. Spaces in one loop can be reserved, the other is first-come, first-served. There were spaces available every day we were there in September. This is dry camping, no hookups. Generators can be run anytime except quiet hours. No gray or black tank dump nearby that we could find. There are several water spickets, but they are not threaded and the ends are tapered such that it is very difficult to connect a hose to fill your fresh water tank. Store and gas station right cross the street. - JackSchmotzer

This is one of those parks that we all know about and HATE to review in fear that it will be full the next time we want to come but I had to do it! This is a very nice Forest Service campground that has a number of back-in and pull-through sites. All of the roads and sites are excellent gravel and very well maintained. Being a Forest Service campground, Senior Pass holders get 50% off camping which makes it a heck of a deal. There are no hookups or dump station here but they do have water for personal use only as all the water here has to be brought in by truck. They have pit toilets as well. Overall, this is a great place to stay when visiting the North Rim if you can't get into the campground there. It is 43 miles from here to the North Rim. This campground is beautiful and the staff is above excellent! Wish I didn't have to leave! - 1998 Ultrasport

Very nicely maintained USFS campground about 40 miles from the North Rim of Grand Canyon. Nice campground hosts and sites. Quiet and removed from all the hustle and bustle of the rim campground. We found the drive down to the rim quite pleasant and great opportunity for wildlife observation. And with the Senior Pass discount it was quite a bargain. Would stay again without question. - tmont

This is a nice RV park to serve as base camp while exploring the area. We were able to get a permit to hike the Wave which was the primary reason for us being here. Sites are very close together and the park is right on the main road into Kanab so road noise is a constant. Wifi was very good by RV park standards. 16Mbps download speeds. Verizon signal was very good. - RoadtripImages dot com

Small park with lots of trees which could prove to be a problem if you want to use your satellite dish. Friendly and helpful owners. Park has road noise during the day, but is surprisingly quiet at night. We will stay here again when we return to volunteer at Best Friends. - jeanne gowan

Small park right off the highway, but quiet at night. Sites are gravel and rather close. Bathrooms are rather small, but clean. Pool was closed. Laundry room was also small, but clean with equipment in good shape. Had a nice little dog park. Owners very nice and helpful. - SAU51

Nice FHU sites with good electric and water quality; Offered WiFi; TV Antenna reception good; pool; small rec area but the billiard tables covers were both torn. Laundry facilities not very good. There are some full time residents but good enough for a few days. Have a few tent sites. There is a dirt road off to the east which connects to a subdivision with access to the Kanab Rim Trail, which was fantastic to walk and let the dogs run loose. - Kerch Family

The price includes $5.00 for 50 amp service. We were here for one night on the way to Lake Powell. Site was sloped, requiring leveling, and I added a portable entry step which we carry. The pool was clean but cool. Laundry was $1.00 to wash, and dry. There's a rec room with 2 pool tables. The free wifi worked well. Staff provided a brochure (one of the best we've seen) with area facilities and vacation info. We would consider staying here again. - Bud H

I don't know what the other reviewers expect but we thought this was a nice place to stay. Staff were very friendly. We don't use the restrooms or showers. I thought that was why you travel in a rv and not a tent. Yes, the lot was not level but judging by the terrain I don't know what you could do that wouldn't be undone every time it rained. We didn't use the wifi either. Nice treed park. Very clean and quiet. - Maltese 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.

This is a hidden gem! About 1/2 mile from the hwy, about 1/4th mile from Pipe Spring National Monument. We visited the Grand Canyon, Zion's National Park, Bryce Canyon, Vermillion Cliffs, Cliff Dwellers, Pipe Spring, Jacob's Lake and could have stayed a month and not seen everything! Amazingly clean, super nice staff, and quaint clubhouse with games, kitchen, showers, laundry, TV, and nice sitting area. We will be back! - AtHomeRV

Excellent staff. They asked several times if there was anything they could do to assist us. Nice grass area, clubhouse, and place to relax. - Jimmyz1

When we arrived there was someone outside cleaning up the campground of some basic litter and trash. They addressed us and made us feel right at home. Later as we were walking around that same person gave us a tour of the clubhouse and gave us some good tips like where the national monument is (Pipe Spring) (only 1/4 of a mile away), and other attractions in the area. We will stay here every time we come through, all the other campgrounds in the area are twice as expensive. - Daviddd

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
