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. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Bryce Canyon is a treasure - please stop and enjoy the park. Be advised that the two campgrounds in the Park can only be considered as truly "boondocking". The only real amenities at the campground are the bathrooms, which are kept spotless by the park maintenance staff.

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. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

It's Bryce. Bring your camera and hiking shoes....maybe some oxygen, 8 or 9 thousand feet high! Take a look at Scenic byway 12. We went to the ruins, about 90 miles one way, some great views but most of a day. Read up on it, we had time and thought it was a nice trip. Red canyon is also good for a side trip.

Great location, right by the rim and visitors center. Large pull through sites, friendly staff. Water at dump station. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Best location within the park. Moderate walk to the visitor center, store, lodge and overlooks. Loops for RVs (>20ft) are paved but many sites are far from level. We're only 22ft and had one front wheel off the ground to get anywhere near level. Showers are in the store building and cost $2. US $1 coins only but they are available at the store. It is a popular place so it's a good idea to arrive early. Rate shown does not reflect Senior Pass. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

This is one of two campgrounds at Bryce National Park. It's a large campground with sites that are first come, first served, and which can accommodate most any rig. We stayed in Loop D, which does not allow generators or RVs over 20'. This loop is popular with tent campers and those with small trailers, camper vans or truck campers. The campground is on a hill and many of the sites will require ingenuity to level your rig. There are flush toilets but no showers in the campground although showers are available at the general store in the park. Sites are large but there is little visual privacy from your neighbors. It's a pretty, well-maintained campground and if you are reasonably fit you can walk to the lodge, store, visitor center and view points from your campsite. Our rate reflects the use of our Senior Access Pass. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in the A loop and the sites are not level. The only trash cans are at the entrance to the campground, which is odd. Most of the sites are pull through with a tree between the site and the road. The A loop is only 100 yards away from the Visitor center which is very convenient.

Typical NP campground - sites were far apart from your neighbor, no hookups. Most, if not all, were pull outs from the side of the road. Our site (#23) had a 2’-3’ drop off from the parking area to the picnic table with a stone retaining wall, but there was a stone step to make it an easy transition. Sites across the road were level without the drop off. Site was easy to level. We had to park our 32’ trailer judiciously to enable the truck to be parked in the site as well. Dump station is about a mile away, a short distance to the main road then turn off to Sunrise point. There is a $5 charge to use the dump station, even if you’ve already paid the camping fee (but $15 camping fee is pretty cheap). Road is paved, site is dirt – but it was pretty level. The campground is very convenient to the rest of Bryce Canyon NP. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Our 5th time back to Bryce. Somewhat disappointed by CG roads in poor shape. A bit of asphalt would go a long way to fix the potholes. Had a bit of a run in with a new to Bryce host who took exception to driving the wrong way a short distance so that the door side was not on the road side. Also repeating dismay that size-appropriate use of sites is not enforced by CG hosts. Case in point was a small class B occupying a site with a notice on the post stating "For RVs over 30' only". Also tenters & smaller RVs in loops signed "over 20' long vehicles only". Many tenters in this loop when plenty sites in tent loop were available. On the plus side, many new fire rings & tables this year. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

As of 5/21, the dump station is closed for construction. There is no other hose hookup available for fresh water. Use another RV park to dump and get water. Of course, NPS doesn't post any warning about this on their website or reservation site. Typical incompetence. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tuesday, April 30 – North Campground, Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah This is one of two developed campgrounds located in Bryce Canyon, both with no hookups and showers only at the General Store ($) within walking distance. North Campground is closer to the Rim Trail and Visitor Center and is open year round. Sites are first come first serve except in the summer there are 15 RV sites that can be reserved in Loop A online. Loops A and B are for campers over 20ft and Loops C and D for those campers or tents less than 20ft. Except our Loop B, over half of the sites the night we were there were taken by tenters in pull -through sites. Even though there is a big sign posted at the beginning of the Loop saying it was for campers over 20ft. The B Loop has more level sites and the most shade. This was an overnight stop for us and it cost $7.50, because of the American the Beautiful Pass for seniors. There is a self fee station when you drive in. We arrived around 10am and so did most of other RV’s coming in. So if coming to the park, arrive early to get a site. They run a shuttle up the park road in early May until late August, so we just missed it. I am sure it would have made our visit even more enjoyable. Beautiful National Park and a great place to camp. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

At this time only loops A and B were open. They are very strict on the 8pm generator shut off. The dump station was not open yet. They put adaptors on the water so that you cannot hook up a hose to fill your tank (I used pliers and removed it temporarily to fill my fresh water tank). The location can't be beat. No showers available. The Verizon card worked well for WiFi. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

This is a nice campground, but might be difficult to find the right site for an RV. We stayed in space 52 on Loop B, which turned out to be great for our 24' RV. I would be surprised if a 40' could get in as is listed on recreation.gov shows. It is at the top of a hill with a slope downward away from the campsite. It is quite open and private away from the site. Overall, I liked Loop B better than Loop A but Loop B had fewer RV acceptable sites (which actually is probably why it is nicer). The site might get a little muddy during rain. It has a table and fire-ring with adjustable grate. The ground was quite level and I didn't need to adjust our RV to get a good level. The buses were not running at the time we visited so we had to drive our RV through the park. It wasn't too bad but slow. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed this National Park campground and were actually here 10 nights. Because this is a first come, first served, we stayed in Ruby's for one night and were at the gate at 8:00 the next morning to get a campsite in this campground. Thus we were able to choose the one we wanted. We have a 35' rig and wanted a larger level site, which we were able to get. Many of the sites are very difficult to level on and we watched people struggle to get level. Otherwise this was a great site: convenient to the Visitor Center, the trails, the Canyon, the dump and the stores, etc. It is also surrounded by trees which make for a nice natural setting. There is a picnic table at each site. The bathrooms were new and very clean. There were no showers in the campground (you can pay for one near the store) so we could not rate them. Our rate reflects the Senior discount. Very nice National Park campground. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Very nice park, large sites but not very level. The only trash bins are outside at the entrance to the campground. We would camp here again. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.
