2 Parks near Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah
Jul 2015 - $30.00
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

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

Quiet campground, with sites well-spaced. Rate reflects senior discount. Dry camping, but unthreaded water spigots are available. Free Wi-Fi available at three nearby places: the lodge, the general store and the visitor center. Handy free shuttle bus takes you wherever you want to go in the Canyon, with a bus stop within easy walking distance of the campground. - HercMaster

We alternated between Sunset Campground and Ruby's RV Park. There are no RV hook-ups in Bryce at all and RV's are only allowed in Sunset CG. We asked an employee how early the next morning we'd need to be there (no advance reserve) and he said it rarely fills up entirely, even in high season which it is. Nice quiet part-shaded park and we had our choice of many sites at noon. Once you reserve you can have the the same spot as long as you want. The best part is the location, just 2 minutes from Sunset Point which is one of the very best locations for both sunrise and sunset viewing and photography. Sunset Point has a smaller parking area than Sunrise Point but because we were so close we always got a good spot. Showers are below par, cost $2/8 minutes and located at the General Store nearby. Watch out on park roads for the crazies driving rental RV's too fast and as if it was a sports car, most with CA tags. We also filled water jugs at the picnic areas (filled water tank at Ruby's). There is a dump station at the campground with a honor pay of $5. Well worth it to support this fabulous park. I'd definitely stay here again in good weather (not requiring A/C). - imagardener
