A simple RV park with no extraordinary facilities. Clean, nice staff. We had a place just at the end of the campground with a beautiful view on sunset. - WorldTravelers

We had a 70 foot level gravel site which was more than long enough for a one night stay with our 36-foot fifth wheel and truck. Utilities were easily accessed . There is no cable but we were able to get over 30 channels on antenna. Free Wi-Fi is provided and service was good. The upper sites have grass and some trees while those on the lower levels are just gravel. All sites have a cement walk way and a pucnic table and barbque. They have put in a packed dirt walk in a field for dog access. This park looks like it is under construction or improvement as there are many areas that have been leveled but are still dirt. It is immediately next to the highway so there is some traffic noise. Because it is immediately off the highway it is perfect for an overnight stay. - bbmidwife

This is a no-frills park. Some of the sites, including the one we were in are very nice; other sites -- not so nice. Our site was level and wide with room for our toad to park side by side with the RV. Nor all sites have shade and a picnic table, but some do and these are nice sites indeed. When make reservations, request the nicest sites and a pull-through site. - hoppytoad

This is the least expensive campground within the Blanding area. It is basically a flat piece of property with a few trees between sites. Side to side leveling was not bad, front to back needed some adjustments. The width and length of the sites were a mixed bag. Some of the sites can accommodate a large rig with a tow.
Check in at the Shell (7-11) store.
Choose your site carefully. Some sites have 50 amp service, some 30 amp, some have both. One electrical box had a 15 amp plug shoved into a 30 amp outlet. This 15 amp plug had a 30 amp breaker switch. Some boxes had the old fashion screw in circuit breakers. Some boxes did not have any circuit breakers. Another box had a 30 amp plug replaced but installed incorrectly (the negative plug was on top instead of on the bottom).
Most of the water spigots were OK but some were too low into the ground. One was actually buried in the dirt. The sewer connections within most sites were too close to the water spigot.
Surprisingly, the voltage was good - hovering around 120 volts. WiFi was available but we did not use it. Verizon air card and cell phone reception was good at this location.
The bathroom and showers were clean but we did not use them. It was quiet at night.
We would come back to this campground but we would be very careful in selecting a camp site. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. - adsaxs

We stayed here three nights while exploring the surrounding area. The pull-through sites near the grass area were huge. Our site needed a small amount of leveling. Very quiet park with very few people camping. Huge amount of digital over the air TV channels. A basic park but we would stay here again. All hookups at the site worked perfect. Staff at the store was friendly. Mexican fast food was a good cheap lunch. - hilgrant

You can book this BLM campsite online, just be aware there is a $9 booking fee. There were plenty of sites available so we probably could have just driven in without a reservation. The campground has two loops and is big rig friendly with several pull through sites. There are no hook-ups but there are water spigots in each loop to fill up containers (not to fill your RV tank). The campground hosts were very friendly and helpful with things to do in the area. Even though the campground is near the highway, it was very quiet. Vault toilets were clean. There is even a short nature hike and nearby jeep trails. The town of Blanding is nearby. We enjoyed our stay here. - mohocamper

This is a no hook up no dump NF campground with very clean pit toilets and water spigots. There are two loops and the more rv friendly of the two was closed during our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our nine day stay. Most of our neighbors seemed to stay a night or two at most but this may have been due to the season. The cg is wooded and we had several deer hiding from the hunters, it is quite nice. There are no amenities or things to "do" in the campground but lots of options within easy driving distance.
We are a 38 foot fifth wheel towed by a semi (same footprint as a big dually) and we were able to fit in site 23. Parking the jeep alongside was tight but easy. This site has a large picnic/side area. The were a few other sites is this loop large enough for us. TIP: Go to the second turn around in this loop if you are large!
We really liked this campground and would be happy to return. We highly reccomend it. - PBuds

What a gem! Almost a 10. One of the nicest NF campgrounds we've been to. The sites and the road from the highway is paved. The southern loop is flat with several pull through sites large enough for big rigs. The trees are juniper/ponderosa mix. The northern loop appears to be older and the sites are not as flat, but it has lots of big ponderosa pines to keep your rig cool in the summer. At least 75% of the sites were not taken or reserved when we arrived at 3pm. - rvfulltime

This is a very small park only about 50 miles from Moab. We stayed here because we wanted to drive on Hwy 191 during daylight hours. The owner is not always on site so we just pick a spot and wait for her to get in. Sites are level and have room between. Park has both back in and pull thru sites. - Grammy8

Basic park. We had an unplanned stop here on way from Moab to Cortez because of windstorm. Called early AM and got two spots as we could not stay another day in Moab where the entire town was sold out. A pleasant surprise. The park is basic but was great for our needs. Unlike most places there was PLENTY of room to maneuver our 45' rig and toad. Power works, good water pressure. Next time I am passing through will stay here rather than pay the premium and fight the crowds in Moab. - dfwcantor

I stayed here after finding no spot in Moab. This park is just an hours drive away. The park is fairly new with easy access. Big rigs will fit. The park is graveled with little grading (meaning it is not level). Bring extra leveling equipment. There is one row of long-term tenants whose trailers were in fair shape. I paid in the morning and the owner was friendly. The location is quiet. The only noise was from a neighboring farmer who was plowing a field. He quit plowing at sundown. - RudyBaga

A park from long ago. sites are large enough but hard to get into due to poor road layout. Lights in the restrooms only work at night? However it is a nice location and a great price. On site restaurant was recommended by other campers. Has a on site Geocache! Owner is a cool guy. Would stay here again. - Brian & Corky

Narrow dirt access road, hard to enter, go to restaurant to register. This is an older campground, the sites are not level, access for larger vehicles is tricky with tight turns. The bathrooms are a disgrace, standing water on floors, dirty, dark. Although it is in a rural area, there is a steep grade on the highway and truck noise was considerable. Nice mountain views and shade, but I would not stay here again. - dzwelch

Made a reservation based on the closest location to Canyonlands. No one was there to check us in, so we checked out the campground and bathrooms on our own. Bathroom and showers were disgusting. Left after about 30 minutes and checked into another RV park back in town. - coffmake
