20 Parks near Bryce Canyon, Utah
Oct 2008 - $25.00
The folks that checked us in lied about the rates at the other campground in the area. This "campground" is more aptly described as a trailer park. Gravel sites, no trees, bathrooms closed, and it is just an extension of the local trailer park. Old pickups cutting through at high speed, raising dust, absolutely unattractive. Rather stay in a rest area. - RedpointRik

The sites are gravel and not very level. The sites are side by side sharing the hook ups, so half are straight pull in and half are back in. We managed to get level in a 40' class A. Restrooms are up in the Chevron station, which has a small store (gas is cheaper at Ruby's in Bryce). The WiFi was slow but is enough for email and simple sites. The trees make satellite reception difficult.
It is only 6 miles from Bryce, which makes it great! The price is reasonable compared to other places around. The staff are quite nice.
It's funny that we had a great stay, yet this doesn't seem like a good review. - sfrantz

There were good sites and bad (mostly getting level, and some very close together) which I figure the other comments are about. Hookups worked well. The whole park is pretty much packed sand which can be quiet dusty at times however there are some trees providing shade.The staff at check-in were great. The chevron station was handy to have close by and of course Bryce is just a few miles down the highway. Great place to visit Bryce and Grand Staircase Escalante and Red Canyon. The rating is for location, location, location. - mlbarry

The reason you would stay here is location. It is convenient to Bryce Canyon NP. Otherwise, not much to recommend it, particularly given the price. The sites are not level, we saw many struggling to get level. Sites and driveways are dirt/gravel. Also, the driveways need to have potholes repaired. The toilets located among the sites are port-a-potties. To get to plumbed toilets and showers you must walk up to the gas station/office. The WiFi service was spotty. The laundry was fine. The associated motel down the road offers horseback rides to Red Canyon. However, the lady we spoke to couldn't tell us anything about the ride other than the facts, time, location, cost etc., and could not give us any encouragement as to why we might want to take this ride, so we didn't. - Coopsecondact

Well set up park. Very close to the national park.
It seems that WiFi in RV parks is always very bad. Ruby's is no exception. They have good coverage (you can get a good signal from most anywhere) but do not have a large enough "back haul" to keep the network working. During my stay I was always able to connect but never was able to use the Internet connection. - Gary man

Bryce Canyon is right there, 1/2 mile away. We rode our Harley to the lookout points and the trails were nice and close. Parts of Bryce were closed. As for the RV park, we were in the newer section so it was just dirt. No lawn. In front of us there were empty spaces that had lawn and fire rings - but because we had our 2 little Chihuahua's, we weren't allowed to have a lawn site. Not fair. $50 bucks was too much for a dirt spot. Internet was spotty, hard to connect, WiFi on & off. Frustrating. I took my 2 dogs for a potty walk while my husband hooked up to connections and I wasn't out there 3 minutes before the park host pulled up next to me and just sat there and looked at me. I held up my potty bag holder then he was okay. Wow! I told him I am a responsible dog owner. I did not appreciate that at all. No pet area provided, either. The sites are very spacious, but no shade at all in the 200 Area, and it's dusty. There is a pool, general store, restaurant, post office, liquor store, art gallery, horseback riding, rodeo, dinner/theater show, scenic flights, ATV tours. There is a shuttle to Bryce Canyon at the front of the park, and my favorite thing there was Old Bryce Town across the street!
Do not wash any vehicles or your unit in the RV park. There is a car and RV wash at the Sinclair across the street. - Pamilu

Beautiful location, just outside Bryce Canyon National Park. Lots of mature trees for shade, pool/spa (spa had very weak jets), office/store with all regular necessities, laundry, etc. The biggest drawback is that most of the place is dirt/gravel, so it's very dusty during summer and may be muddy during rain. Walking distance to store, restaurants, gas stations, etc.
Our motorhome has slide outs on both sides. In our first site (pull-through space 111), the trees were so close we couldn't open our slides all the way, and we couldn't get our rooftop mounted satellite dish to work. The neighboring site's fire ring was very close our rig, which would've concerned me if they had used it. The second night, we moved to site 223, which is a back-in site in a new section of the park. There was no shade at all, but the surrounding views were great, and we were able to use our slides and dish. The new area gives each site their own lawn area, which is great for dogs. There were also cows visible from the adjacent property, as well as a small lake. - ADMD

Just a heads up, Bryce Canyon has raised their daily rates effective July 1, 2015. First come, first serve tent camping is $20/night while any type of RV is $30/night. For definitions of RV's, please see the Wikipedia entry (that's what the NP is using).
North campground has undergone some minor improvements over the last year - new water and power lines have been installed. Unfortunately the campground roads have only been minimally repaired or graded since August 2014, so expect dust, mud and potholes. Many of the tent sites in D loop are now covered with large rocks making tent camping lumpy to say the least.
There is a nice picnic area in North Campground close to the Rim Trail, but alas, the new waterline construction didn't include connecting the water to the this area, so there is no water available in the picnic area.
We volunteered there as camp host in North Campground from April to July 2015 and the status of the campground is as described when we left. - mackerman

Perfect...that was easy. We started booking this trip in March and all the reservable spots were gone. On the advice of park staff, we got there about 10 AM and there were a plethora of spots available. Easy leveling but most did not appear to be. Clean, heated bathrooms close by. Showers, as described before, were a short drive away at the store. The store has to be mentioned for having a variety of goods, including some RV items, at a very reasonable price considering they are the only game in town. Chili was OK but not great. We were in a generator section and others were good about respecting hours. There for five nights and might go again next year with kids and g-kids. - Dave n Rene

It's difficult to give a high rating to a campground that has no services at all. That being said, the price is cheap and you are right in Bryce Canyon Nat. Park. We were in North campground, site A-14. The sites are just pull-offs on the side of the campground road, with picnic table and fire pit nearby. Once we opened our slides, we couldn't open the storage doors beneath. The trash disposal is a far distance away. The setting is pretty, pine trees all around. The sites are fairly spacious. We might try a campground just outside the park next time. - dbcordello

This is more of a tenting campground, but can accommodate RVs up to about 30' in length. I went to Bryce expecting no hookups so the low rating is not for that. My main beef is that Bryce is supposed to be first come first serve for sites. I was directed by a ranger to the north campground since I have a 30' bumper pull. Upon driving through north campground, I found the biggest and best sites marked as reserved. There were no remaining sites big enough for me so we went to sunset campground. Here, there were many sites but none were level (although they easily could be) and the roads were dirt (little to no gravel). There is an area designated as "no tents" because the sites are larger and can accommodate RVs up to 34' in some cases. This was not enforced. Upon paying for the site, the RV cost is $30 where a tent is $15. But there's no hookups...so why is an RV more than a tent? The dump station is a separate fee, so no bonus for RVs there. If I were to return, I would camp at a commercial park outside the national park. The nat'l park shuttle buses run out to the town and campgrounds / hotels there to make pickups. - WineStream

Beautiful natural campground with large sites, no hook-ups. First come, first serve so get there early morning to get a site. Great place to stay while visiting the park-highly recommended. - MargaretL

Hubby and I drove through here in late afternoon, hoping to find a vacancy, and there were several. You drive through and pick your site, then go back up and deposit your payment in the envelope provided. Very quiet and peaceful with tall pines and brush. The site had a picnic table and firepit. You have to drive across the main road to go to the General Store to buy firewood and take showers. Nice, well-stocked store, and the shower was $2 for 8 minutes, very ample. You can walk to the shuttle pick-up station and see all the best sights from there. Would love to stay here again. - simmonsrv

The price was raised to $30 plus tax and you don’t get a discount anymore. Now the campground is overpriced. There are some houses behind the campground, and the residents are driving through the campground pretty fast, and then it is dusty, dusty and dusty. Wi-Fi was not available on the campground, but in the office. - RVer from Oregon

The campground is located in the inner courtyard of a motel. I have counted 10 pull through sites, all with full hookup (50 Amp). The sites are on gravel or weeds, but leveled. The distance to the neighbor is just enough for a table, but you don’t want to sit outside. The campground is absolutely neglected. It was quiet there and you can see the Bryce Canyon Amphitheater with binoculars. I found an open Wi-Fi signal, but I don’t know if it was from the campground/motel or somewhere else. It worked very slowly and was not reliable. We used this campground as a base camp for Kodachrome Basin State Park (about 15 miles) and Bryce Canyon NP (9 miles). The price per night was $18 plus tax. You can get a 10% discount as AAA member. - RVer from Oregon

We passed a lot of nice RV parks and resorts that were much closer to Bryce Canyon NP, so I thought the price was a little high for this location. That said, this campground has a camping ambience with pretty views. It is located on Scenic Byway Route 12. Traffic is minimal, and vehicle noise was not an issue. The 15 mile drive to Bryce was pretty and not a big deal for us. No grocery stores near Cannonville. This CG provides a picnic table and fire ring. There are tent sites, nice cabins and a pool. Hookups are reasonably located, and big rig sites are long enough. 50 amp electric and water pressure okay. WIFi was typically adequate. We used our satellite dish and antenna with minimal channels (no CBS or ABC). NO cell coverage on AT&T. Site was long enough for our 40' fifth wheel and tow vehicle (w/duallies). The office staffers were sometimes helpful, and sometimes blandly grouchy. (Note to staff: we are new to your camp, not idiots or derelicts just because we don't know your particular rules. The brusque attitude made me think about moving to one of those CGs that were closer to Bryce.) - OH2SD

The people who work at this park are very friendly, helpful and nice! Check in was efficient and we were escorted to our site. Our site had a great shade tree and grass area. The park is very conveniently located to visit Bryce Canyon, Kodachrome and Escalante Staircase. - Admiral II

This KOA sits 10 miles south of the entrance to Bryce Canyon NP. The staff was really friendly. Our site 18 was a nice long pull through on gravel (mostly level). We had a nice tree for shade and a patch of grass for our picnic table. We enjoyed the marshmallow roast Saturday night, and the ice cream social Sunday night. The grounds are well kept. I thought the laundry machines were a little pricey at $2.50 a wash and $1.50 to dry. But there were a sufficient number of machines. The wifi was good, but we had no cell service on our phones and there was no cable service. The distance from the park did not bother us. We would stay here again. - Caveman54

Gravel lots - needs a little leveling of the RV. Close to the highway but you have to be real sensitive to noise for the road noise to bother you. The people are really helpful and friendly. Good central location for both Bryce and Zion canyons. - Cahon

Very pleasant lady running office. We staying in site 213, level. Short drive to Bryce NP. Wifi good most times. Did not connect free cable. Good park, not as crowded as the one closer to NP. We would definitely stay here again. - User3126

What a beautiful setting! A mini Bryce Canyon without the crowds. Since we were traveling with relatives in a separate camper, we took one of the double sites that don't allow Senior/Access Pass discounts. It was worth the extra fee. Although the campground is near the highway, noise wasn't a problem (lots of trees helped with screening). Flush toilets and clean showers were nearby. The camp hosts were friendly and helpful. The only negative for me was that a curved access road on a hill was only one lane wide. Could be a problem if meeting another rig. - Desert Beacon

Beautiful location close to Bryce Canyon. There is a busy highway close but pretty quiet at night. We stayed fairly far back away from the highway. The grounds are very clean. There are hot showers. The scenery is lovely. - blackstoneburro

Nice state park not far from Bryce Canyon. Spacious, level, scenic sites. Some sites have electric, all have water. No WIFI, no cell service. Lots of hiking trails, unfortunately some are used by a horseback riding concession and are in poor condition. Very scenic park. Nice showers.
We stayed here 3 nights in a motorhome. - 76Gator

During a recent two month trip we stayed here for four nights. It quickly became our favorite. The cleanliness of the park, it's amenities and the staff are top notch. The natural beauty that surrounds you within the basin are almost indescribable. There are numerous hiking options, most of which offer amazing views. It is beyond quiet and peaceful, and the night sky is simply stunning. Unless you are very lucky you need to plan way ahead to secure a spot. But it's worth it. - RalphB3

Sites are well spaced for privacy, they have some full hook ups, some electric water, some tent sites, Paved site was probably 90 feet long and level. Beautiful park, very quiet and clean, great easy to moderate hiking trails, really dark skies for star gazing, views of Bryce Canyon in the distance, as well as the Grand Staircase, Easy day trip to Bryce Canyon. No cell phone coverage of any type. Probably books up on many weekends, reservations advised. Would stay here again. - sam and hope
