8 Parks near Bluff, Utah
Sep 2016 - $8.00
Brief, one night stay. The campground is perfect for pre-launch river trip stay or a quiet night just travelling through. Beautiful petroglyphs. Some shade and the beautiful San Juan River. Beautiful Country. - Canyon Wren

An adequate, basic place to stay with no hook-ups. Next to San Juan river, so expect mosquitoes. No access to water here, but there is a boat launch nearby. Pit toilets and a water spicket at entrance. Road noise. It beats staying in a commercial RV park. - Camden12

Stayed here two nights. Loop A is for tents, Loop B has RV sites, about 3 can fit very big rigs. Sites are fairly level, some near the San Juan River, some near the petroglyphs. There are no hook-ups but there is a water spigot and pit toilets. There is a boat launch area for accsess to the river.
The mosquitoes can get bad, especially closer to the river so make sure you have bug spray. We found it quiet and we used it as a base to explore Bluff, Monument Valley, Hovenweep and Goosenecks. The closest grocery store is 30 minutes away in Blanding, UT but there is a small convenience store in Bluff. - mohocamper

This park has nice wide pull-throughs. Good service from host. Great WiFi, water, electricity, and sewage. This is a good place for a motor home, 5th wheeler or trailer. No showers or restroom. From Bluff it is easy to go to Valley of the Gods, Moki Dugway, Natural Bridges, Hovenweep, Recapture Pocket and Fort Bluff. We spent four days exploring in this area. Would stop here again. - MB-JD1

Basic RV park. Long spaces. The lady in the office was very nice. Good 50 amp power. Just as good as the KOA we stayed at the night before and paid $50. - yumsbpa

This is an RV park 'in progress' as they will build new bathrooms, showers, office bldg. sometime in future. There are 15 pull through sites full-hookup. Spacing for a commercial RV park is better than most, and some of the trees actually provide shade. At the time of our stay there was only one picnic table, but since only one 5th wheel was here besides us, that one table became ours. The sites are gravel and are level. - Timeking

We stayed in our motorhome pulling our toad for just one night. The bathrooms and showers are run down and quite unappealing. The site was long and wide enough to accommodate us without having to unhook which was a bonus. The park is for sale and appears to be quite neglected. There is a pond with ducks and cattails which is a nice area to walk your pet. I would not stay here for more than one night and then only if it was the only park available in the area (which was the case for us). The owner was friendly but even the office was unkempt and looked as if they just didn't care. - suzwoodard

Small park, very clean, level sites. It is easy to maneuver throughout park and to park on site. One of two parks in town. - Mustcamp
Apr 2016 - $30.00
In our opinion the nicest one in town as the entry & RV parking area are gravel and is easy in and out. Sites are large enough for larger RVs with space to park beside. Stayed just a couple nights so didn't use any of their facilities. Staff was friendly and helpful. This is not a big park so I'd call ahead - they were full the two nights we were there. The WiFi did not work. The cell reception was poor. Verizon cell and data was bad. AT&T had good phone but only dial up speed data. Yes I would stay again if I just needed an overnight spot. - Francie L
Oct 2016 - $35.00
Stayed 3 nights. Manager was very helpful and friendly and provided excellent recommendations of things to do and see. Spacious lots ranging from sunny and open, to some shade exposures. Level pull through sites, with some back-ins as well. - callwzrd
Oct 2016 - $31.00
Wide open park with some spectacular views. Some trees but satellite reception excellent. So much to do in the area and the owner gave us a detailed map with all attractions, near & farther. - monamonaco
Jul 2016 - $35.00
Nice small park, roomy, roads and sites are mostly hard packed dirt/sand. Beautiful views. Very hospitable owner. Bluff is tiny, pop. app. 300. Seems very quiet, but we had AC running all night - HOT here in July! - Dennis M

The manager was friendly and helpful at first but turned sullen later over a safety issue. He told us about Muley point which turned out to be a panoramic vista of Monument Valley and the San Juan river. He also told us about other sites (Valley of the Gods). restaurants (mostly cafe types) and groceries some 24 miles away. The park is definitely bare bones; it is all gravel with bush-type trees. It is bounded by a single wide trailer on one side, a run down trailer court in the back, and a dirt parking lot for river rafters on the other side. If you walk toward the river you may find some small oil wells and some roaming neighborhood dogs. I think it is overpriced for what you get. The manager has a dingo type dog that he lets loose in the morning and it charged at me both mornings we were there growling and snarling! The manager made excuses, minimized the incident, never apologized, and never leashed it! - mountainmanmike

Not much more than a stopping off point for Monument Valley and Goosenecks. Good antenna TV reception. Stayed one night and that was enough to do the Valley visit and State Park, then moved on. First place on the north side of town next to a small church - park is out back of an old convenience store. - SailorGolf

We thought this was a really weird place. Mexican Hat is a community of approximately 85 people. The fellow running the park seemed a bit off and strange. He told us right off jump that he made no money off the park, only off the beer he sold tons of to the locals. Later, we noticed several quite young teen-aged girls getting off the school bus and trekking upstairs to the living quarters above the store/office and leaving after about an hour (??) We only stayed one night here--we were too creeper out. Just a place to stop and catch some sleep if you really have to. - Rizzles LaRue

The road to this park is paved and easily driven. Entrance is $5 if you just want to see the view or camping fee is $10/night. The gate attendant was there until 6:30pm and returned the next morning at 7:30ish. There are about 8 sites with fire rings and picnic tables, but you can drive further on a a rocky unpaved road to other undeveloped sites. This is dry camping, no water spigot and a vault toilet which smelled when you got close to it. The view of the canyon is spectacular especially when you are camped a few feet away. You can hike along the edge, but not much else to do. It did get a bit windy (tents might be difficult) and there is no shade. At sunset, the canyon colors change, at night the stars are magnificent. We camped here for one night and are glad we did. - mohocamper

This is a very remote park. It is all about the views here. No power, water, or amenities (there is a bathroom).
There are not very many campsites, so they are roomy, and there are times when you may have most of the park to yourself.
You can choose to park/camp right on the edge of the canyon.
This is a true treasure - and if you are a sucker for canyon views, this is a great place to spend a few days just taking them in. Also - there are some other interesting geological features nearby. - AngelaS

Sadly, Goosenecks is no longer free. It is now $2 entry fee and $10 to camp. The "park" is basically a scenic overlook. There are vault toilets. Closer in sites have fire rings and picnic tables. You can follow the road out further on the point and access other sites with no amenities but the road has big rocks and is rough. I gave 7 stars for the amazing view. I camped 10' from the edge on a full moon night and it was magical. However, I think $10 is a bit much as I've stayed at BLM CGs with similar amenities, and more things to do like hiking etc., and they were free. Like I said, this is a scenic overlook, there's nothing to do but look over the edge and go Wow! I guess the fee sure has thinned the herd, though, as there were only 2 other RVs. Oh, surprisingly good AT&T 3G data here. That was unexpected. - Gail K

Stayed for a week. Conveniet home base to visit Mesa Verde, Monument Valley, Canyonlands, Arches, Dead Horse, etc. Very nice staff. Great value compared to Moab. Best wifi we have encountered. - Della W
Sep 2016 - $36.00
Good value and location for the price. We stayed in the upper-level sites (Site 12). There was a nice grass section in front of each unit in upper level (the lower-level sites were just gravel). We had a beautiful tree on our grass area. The lower-level sites appeared to be filled each night with overnighters. The upper-level sites seemed to be more for campers staying a few days. The sites were level, long and very easy to pull through because roads are very wide. All sites had a nice long cement sidewalk running 40-50 feet along side of their unit which really cut down on dirt tracking in. The sites were twin sites so our back was just a few feet from our neighbor's back--our back slides were pretty close. Not a problem at all unless you're both trying to connect/disconnect at the same time. There are no firepits because of fire ordinance but there is a nice charcoal grill at each site. The campground is right on Main Highway 191 but wasn't noisy. We got in 30 channels off antenna. The staff was super helpful about things to do. They have a big screen with detailed maps to show you the area and how to get from point A to point B. The trading post was a fun store. The bathrooms were very basic, but clean. We would stay here again. - Smashcamp

We stayed here for a week while we explored the greater Moab area. Great park for big rigs - wide turns, large sites. The guy who checked us in was very friendly, inviting us to use the newly created fire pit area at the rear of the park. It was well-maintained, quiet and no frills, just what we needed. The only downside was that the rigs park opposite each other and share the utility area, which means being sort of close to the rear side neighbor, but it wasn't a problem at all. This park was nicer and more professional looking than any other park in the area. - ErikaN

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
