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.

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.

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.

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.

We stayed here three nights. The canyon is beautiful and staying in the campground made you feel a part of it. There was an abundance of wildlife around. The sites were fairly level with a grill and picnic table. The regular rate is $15 but I have a senior pass and go half price. They have a dump station with fresh water. The park is well kept and patrolled. Shuttles run every few minutes throughout the park. You can catch it right at the campground and go anywhere in the park. We would stay here again.

We lucked out and got a very level site #30. Most sites are on a hill either coming or going through the loop. The restrooms were being remodeled so there are four shiny blue porta-potties instead. We didn't use them so can't say if they were clean. This park is beautiful but most sites are unsuitable for motor home or fifth wheel unless you have lots of blocks for leveling. The generator time was not a problem. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

First the positives: beautiful campground, quiet and a great place to walk pets. The sites are wonderful, and we like that they have recycle bins for just about everything. It was a short walk to the visitors center. Negatives: months before reserving I emailed to ask about potable water and dump station and was told both were near campground. When we checked in we asked if the 8 pm generator time was extended since evening temps were 30's and going down and ranger said no and nothing more. When we arrived at our site we were informed by our neighbors that dump/potable water station was closed due to extremely cold weather and if we needed fresh water we would have to drive back to Rubys Inn and pay to fill fresh water tank. It wasn't the paying that got me it was the ranger not informing us at check in that annoyed me. The first night it was 35, the second night 29 with night 4 &5 going to low 20's with snow. We had enough of the cold and left after 2 nights. The 2 days we were there we ran the generator until 8 PM each night, pulled in slides to contain heat, piled on blankets etc.. This park was 1/4 filled with sites reserved but campers never showed up. Such a shame this park wasn't filled. I think if they brought in electric it would be filled like Zion and with that more money spent in and around the park. We camped at North Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
