Stayed here three nights, would not stay again because of possible damage to RV or vehicle. This will test your nerves for driving and trying to setup. The owner needs to cut about 25% of the trees and a lot of them could be identified by the rub marks, and chunks of missing bark. You will not be escorted to your site. I don't think they want employees to witness damage to vehicles or RVs. Office lady told us how to get to our site and knew we were pulling a 36' fifth wheel. We could have possible made the pull in as directed if we would have been pulling a 10' popup. We circled the park dragging trees down the side of our RV and came in from another direction. We had a man move his truck and he helped us into the site. We used all the plastic levelers we had from two containers and finally got level. I think the last owner money put into this camp was maybe 1956. A small amount of money leveling sites and removing trees would greatly improve this camp to a firm 10. The WiFi was great. The garbage cans and the showers are 100 yds away at the store. We camped at Bryce Canyon Pines in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed 3 nights at this RV park. It is well maintained and clean. Location was excellent for our visit to Bryce Canyon NP. The restrooms are located in the camp store/gas station building so it can be a little bit of walk for some sites. Nice pine trees and shade throughout the park. We camped at Bryce Canyon Pines in a Fifth Wheel.
About 6 miles from Bryce Canyon National Park, this campground is full of large pine trees and well shaded. It's a bit small, but we were placed in site #E2, which was close to the front. We were immediately approached by a 'neighbor' who informed us that we were too big and needed to "go up the road where all the big guys go." We fit just fine and had plenty of room for our 41' RV and truck. Each site had a picnic table and cement fire pit. The only amenities were a small general store, a gas station without diesel, small restrooms, and a laundry room ($1.75 wash, .75 dry). The free WiFi was extremely fast and reliable. We didn't use our hotspot the entire time we were there. Considering the RV parks 'up the road' are either full-sun or won't accommodate big rigs, we would stay here again. We camped at Bryce Canyon Pines in a Fifth Wheel.
Very dusty and unlevel. We were assigned a spot that was approximately two feet from another RV. The other RV was backed in and we had to drive in. It took lots of effort to level the RV and it was very dangerous to step out of the RV as the ground sloped significantly. We could not initially use the sewer as it was so far from where we had to park the RV to hook to the water and electric. We had to travel to another town to buy an adapter to hook two hoses together. Not all sites were that way but several were. Wi-Fi was useless. Would not stay here again. We camped at Bryce Canyon Pines in a Motorhome.
Park is behind gas station. Please be aware there is no diesel, propane, and very little in the way of groceries. Husband checked out showers and wasn't impressed. Two small spaces that were dark and uninviting. Be sure of your plans because there is no refund even if weather related. Lots are not level. Our jacks and boards couldn't level us. Utilities are between two lots. Not much room between the two sites. Lots are dirt not gravel. Nice trees. Just a few miles from Bryce. If returning, we would look for another park. We camped at Bryce Canyon Pines in a Motorhome.

Rate is Good Sam. Add 10+% tax. Site set-up is a little 'odd' for getting into spots and sites do need leveling (I brought mine) but a Really nice place. Excellent internet, laundry, friendly people, tree shaded, close to Bryce NP, access to Kodachrome SP. Lots of tent sites also and showers etc. are good. No good groceries, so plan ahead. Enjoyed my time here. We camped at Bryce Canyon Pines in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice shady park amongst pine trees. Each site had a fire pit for campfires or BBQ. Only 4-5 miles to Bryce Canyon Nat'L park. Nice laundry facilities and a bare bones little grocery. Very helpful staff that directed us to a pristine and beautiful lake 7 miles away where my husband caught trout. We camped at Bryce Canyon Pines in a Travel Trailer.

Nicely wooded campground near Bryce Canyon NP, but we needed all of our wood and levelers to get our trailer level and looking around, most sites seemed similar. Interior roadways are very rough local stone (not uniform-size gravel) and dirt. It looks like rain would make a lot of mud. Some of the sewer connections are too high to permit easy draining of tanks. On the plus side, the Wi-Fi is decent, the rest rooms and showers are modern and clean. A word of caution: if you are coming from the east, don't stop at the Motel, the campground is up the road about 1/4 mile and the office is in the Chevron station on the left. We camped at Bryce Canyon Pines in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place to stay. About 5 miles out from entrance, off far enough to put big damper on road noise. Big site, some leveling, had a table and the Wi-Fi was the best on our trip. Staff was great, laundry good, would definitely stay here again. They were the only ones who sent me e-mail reminder of reservation and only one to send me e-mail asking for any input/rating of their facility. We camped at Bryce Canyon Pines in a Fifth Wheel.
Our rate reflects Good Sam discount. This campground can be a little tricky if you listen to the people at the gas station. Nice people but dumb as dirt. The campground host got pretty ticked when the check-in folks sent me the wrong way and got us tangled up in a no-way turn. The water was good, electric was good, nice and quiet at night. Sites were not very level. You MUST go down the road to their restaurant and have some of their famous pie. AWESOME. Would stay again. We enjoyed it , even with the dust. We camped at Bryce Canyon Pines in a Travel Trailer.
As always, we rate value for money. Only 4 miles from Bryce Canyon entry this park is a very good deal. Our rate reflects a Good Sam discount. Full hookup pull thru sites, though the sewer was too far in the back for us. Very unlevel sites, we had to use a lot of levelling equipment like other campers. But that's the only really downer in that park. Our rig is 51 feet combined length and we had no problem getting in and out, driving carefully and watching out for trees of course. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very quiet at night. No comment on the washrooms and showers since we idn't use them. Excellent laundry. We'll be back to enjoy more of Bryce Canyon. We camped at Bryce Canyon Pines in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground - no frills, very quiet and located close to Bryce Canyon. The campground is along highway 12, but we did not hear any traffic. Sites are a little tight and layout of most pull-throughs are "back to back". Otherwise, everything is fine. People at check-in are very nice. We would go back again as long as it is for short term.

First and foremost this campground is easy to find. I read the bad review below and can feel their frustration. When you call for a reservation you are actually contacting the motel down the street. The campground is run at the store up the road where the campground is actually located. I can see that what is said at the motel is not always communicated to the campground. Also, the campground is also the general store and gas station. The employees can get pretty busy. We were treated wonderfully by the campground hosts. They went out of their way to tell us what sights to see and where to eat. At first glance I thought the campground streets were going to be tight. They were not. Trees are not a problem for obtaining a satellite signal. They have 30 amp service and good water and septic on site. There is no local TV reception off an antenna and the park does not provide cable. If you do not have satellite TV you may be bored :) This place is ideally located for anywhere you want to go in the area. We inspected a lot of other campgrounds in the area and did not see any that were much better. We are happy campers :) We camped at Bryce Canyon Pines in a Motorhome.

Perfect location between beautiful Red Canyon and crazy busy Bryce Canyon City. Level gravel site in delightful pine forest (still got good satellite reception) with paved bicycle trail passing by. Very peaceful with scenic mountains beyond. Wi-Fi was superior! Water pressure was low. 30 Amp sites only but with nighttimes in the 30's and days in the 60's, we didn't need AC. We camped at Bryce Canyon Pines in a Motorhome.
This was the worst campsite on our trip. After confirming via the web that we needed a 50amp hookup, and calling them 5 days in advance, when we got here. They didn't have any available. It turns out that they only have 5 (!) 50amp sites in the entire park. The desk was less than sympathetic when we complained. "Sorry thats all we can do." "I don't know why they took your reservation but there's nothing I can do now." Or my personal favorite: "I don't know how the web reservation system works, but its too bad it accepted yours when we only have 5, 50amp sites and they are all full." (Mind you the reservations were made months in advance.) The Wi-Fi was terrible, frequently going offline for minutes at a time. Their "big rig" sites are a bit laughable as with my 45 footer, only one set of wheels can be on the pad at once. The others were in the dirt. They are not level at all, and it was past the point that my airbag system (which admittedly is a bit weak in this area) could compensate for. The worst part about it was the bad attitudes by both the campers and the staff. It looked like the park was about 50/50 residents vs transients but it was hard to tell. What was easy to see, was that it was overrun past anyone's ability to manage and the attitudes had turned sour. There were toads parked along the ingress routes to the sites. Not in an overflow area but actually on the roads to the sites: making navigation tricky. There are also lots of little hidden tree-stump dangers along the way which are just big enough to scrape the bottom (or bottom sides in our case) of your rig. These are not marked and are hard to see, so I would highly recommend getting a spotter to walk your sides while you park. Don't bother asking for help at the desk as they will tell you that its "your problem" to get in and out of the sites without damage. And a few of the other campers seem to share the same attitude. On the day of our departure, we couldn't get out because there were too many toads along the path and there simply wasn't enough room (width) to pass though to get out of the park. Usually knocking on doors (especially after 10am) will illicit grumbles but helpful people who will move their vehicles. Here, a few attempts were met with "F--off" from the inside of the camper. We ended up at one point, in the middle of the road with the engine running, waiting for 20 minutes while one of the two roadblocks got around to moving out of the way. If you can get an outside ring spot, it would be much better, so try to negotiate that at the desk. Otherwise, look elsewhere as its a shame this otherwise nice park and perfect location has degenerated. P.S. The restaurant across the street has the same overcrowding and attitude issues. We walked over at 6:30pm and got served at 9:45pm. The food was cold, bad and not what we ordered. The kids all ordered fries but the food came out with carrot/pea mixed veggies (completely underwhelming the children). When we asked about this we were told that they were out of fries now, and this was the "other option." They also managed to cook my chicken fried steak to the point where it would have served as a spare tire patch. There were parts of it the little knife couldn't cut through. By 10:30 we high tailed it back to the camper and were praying for the madness to end. We camped at Bryce Canyon Pines in a Motorhome.
