It's hard to book a site at Kodachrome Basin state park. I was able to secure a reservation by checking back every day for 2 weeks, and a site for one night opened up. I had been here years ago, and thought this was the prettiest campground anywhere around Bryce. Nice hikes in the park, very quiet, and only 20 minutes from the entrance to Bryce. It is located about 9 miles off the main highway on a paved, 2 lane well maintianed road. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Motorhome.

I found the Reserve America online reservation system confusing to use, so we ended up with no hookups at all the first nite. We were not prepared for that, and the rangers were not as helpful as I wished for, but they did come thru the next day (new guy) and moved us to another site. Aside from that, this is a beautiful campground, with lots of hiking nearby, and gorgeous scenery. The sites vary a LOT, so be sure to check out as much info as you can on the Reserve America site. There are a few spaces that accommodate big rigs, but some of the other sites are difficult (like having the hookups on the wrong side as you drive in thru the twisting one-way road). Do your homework and you will be rewarded with interesting and beautiful rocks and sedimentary pillars, nights full of stars, and absolute silence during the nite, and even sometimes during the day! Great place for campfires! Within 50 miles is some of the most beautiful scenery on earth. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The drive down is much longer than the drive out, if you know what I mean. It is all paved from Highway 12, but no center line, and the speed limit is 30 mph. I started wondering if I'd made a big mistake in taking a 32-foot 5th wheel down there, and it was a long 9 miles to the campground. After we knew what to expect, it was a quiet place to camp, and not bad driving to Bryce and Escalante. You could spend a week or two here and not run out of great places to go, not to mention hiking.

$28 per night was for a lovely level coral-colored gravel site with full hookups, picnic table, and fire ring. This campground is located in a colorful high Sonoran desert basin on the Colorado Plateau and boasts 67 monolithic sedimentary spires jutting up from the valley floor or protruding from sandstone and ranging from six to 170’ in height. Two trails allow hikers, bikers, and horses; there are an additional three trails open to hikers only. There are Utah junipers and pinyon pines on each site as well as other low growing plants. Cannonville is the nearest town and it has one small grocery store, a post office, a motel, a KOA campground, and not much else. Cell service and Internet of any kind were nonexistent. There were no OTA TV stations and only one weak radio station. If you like peace and quiet, this is the place for you. OHVs must be “street legal.” Beware, there is a lot of iron in the water. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Motorhome.

Amazing stars at night. Great hikes in the park and nearby, especially if you have 4 wheel drive. Very peaceful. Cold nights in late fall, which we liked. Terrific staff -- the ranger was very knowledgeable and helpful. Bryce is only about 45 minutes away. The campground is right in the middle of terrific scenery -- wonderful sunrises and sunsets. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Travel Trailer.

What a quiet and beautiful campground! LONG, WIDE pull-thru sites (back-ins were huge, too), nice picnic table area with fire pit (bundles of wood sold on the honor system in campground for $5/bundle). Plenty of places to ride bicycles and hike. Horseback rides available. Small store had essentials. 12-14 miles from groceries, wifi, and cell reception. Close to Bryce N.P. Be aware of hitchhiking critters--we found 2 mice in the truck cab eating the dog treats. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you want quiet, you've got it here. Beautiful park with no 21st century communication, thankfully. Second visit to this state park. A total of ten full hookup sites. Six more were added since last visit. Pull-throughs and back-ins, all are very nice as well as the dry sites. Bathrooms and park in general are clean and immaculate. What a pleasure this place is. If you like the Colorado Plateau scenery, you will enjoy your time here. We will be back again to take some more hikes. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Motorhome.

We had a full hookup site in this secluded state park about 14 miles from Bryce NP. Most sites here have no hookups...about 4 full service sites. There is no TV, no radio and no telephone service as the campground is in a beautiful red rock canyon. Site services are all new and very good. Campground is spotless. Spectacular night skies from here as there is no light pollution. Definitely would stay here again. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a fantastic state park campground. Located in a area surrounded by beautiful rock formations. I would suggest booking early online if you want full hookups. The road and sites are firm unpaved. Full hookup sites were pull through, good length, width and level. Some of the other sites are electric and water while others have nothing. No wifi or phone service at park. The area is beautiful and worth spending several days here. It is nine miles back to Canonville , but groceries, gas and restaurants are a few miles more in Tropic. This park is not as well known as others in the area so you don't have to deal with large crowds. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We booked for three nights and stayed for five. This is the place to chill out. Surrounded on three sides by a high mesa with brilliant limestone colors, the park, like all Utah State Parks, is immaculate. The staff was delightful, as well as the many fascinating people camping in the park. We took a horseback ride with magnificent vistas of the cliffs of Bryce Canyon National Park. This park is a nice location for visiting UT 12 scenic byway and Bryce Canyon. The sites are large, the bathrooms spotless. Remember - there is no cell phone service of any kind in this area. The rangers make that clear and it is on the brochure. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wednesday, May 1 – Kodachrome Basin State Park, Utah This park is located about 25 miles north of Bryce Canyon National Park off of route 12. Nice drive getting to it. The park has over 4,000 acres with striking rock formations. In 1948 the National Geographic Magazine sent a group here for pictures and a story and they named the area Kodachrome after the film because of the beauty and color found here. It did change names a few times but then stuck with the Kodachrome Basin name. The campground sits in a basin with 30 numbered sites that can be reserved online. If you do not have reservations you get a one night permit and then might have to change sites daily. The cost is $20 for a site with hookups (8 of them). The bath house was clean with showers. There is a visitor center and a number of hikes within walking distance of the park. When you are driving to the park, you will go by one of the visitor centers for the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument which surrounds this park. That is a good stop and very informative. We have heard great things about Kodachrome Basin State Park and we were not disappointed. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a gorgeous place and very well run state park. We had a dry site, a long, paved pull-out with a great view of the surrounding canyon. There are a handful of FHU's, but you would probably need a reservation. Nice hot showers and hot water camp sink. The hiking is great here, with several long, but moderate trails with fantastic views of Bryce Canyon to the west. If you are traveling from Bryce to Capitol Reef, this park is well worth your time to stop. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed two nights in this very nice park. The rate reflects having to change our reservation which added an extra five bucks. Four full hook up sites. All nice with hookups in good condition and placed well. All the rest of the sites are dry but with plenty of room and picnic table and fire ring. The picnic table is on concrete. The restrooms and showers were very clean. Grassy area around the restroom/dish washing area. Nice touch. This state park is nicer than most private RV parks we have stayed. Lots of nice scenery and walking/hiking trails. We will be back. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Motorhome.

What a magnificent park! Parked up in the canyon surrounded by cliffs and hoodoo's. The park offers hiking trails and two trails suitable for off-road bicycling. Bryce NP is a 30 minute drive. There are only 4 full hook-up sites available - #25 through #28. There is NO cell or data in the park. The office used to have a wi-fi connection, but they now have a State line of some sort that is secure. There are several small towns within 20 miles where a signal can be had. Also, we drove the 10 miles out the dirt road at the park entrance to Grosvenor's Double Arch. Well worth the drive! This is our second visit. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great state campground with unbeatable scenery. Only 5 sites with hook-ups. The rest are dry, but worth it. Bathrooms/showers were immaculate; sites were well-spaced and extremely quiet! Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Motorhome.
