This is a beautiful state park with beautiful surroundings and is one of the nicest sites we've stayed in recently. Very peaceful. There is no cellular service or TV service in the park. The park rangers are very nice and helpful and pointed me to a place to get a tire repaired. Boy Scouts provide firewood for $5.00. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Spectacular scenery surrounding the unique Basin Campground. Designated Dark Sky Park so star gazing on a clear night is breathtaking. Park is very quiet at night. The campsites were long asphalt drives with full hookups and natural landscaping in between sites. Not too close to neighbors but you could see them. Our site had a nice firepit and picnic table. Showers were private and clean. Being in a basin, there's zero cell service, no data, no TV, not even AM radio--so nice for a few days. We highly recommend this park and will definitely return.

We stayed in the newer Bryce View Campground with no hookups. It is clean and nice but our main complaint was the generator hours are only from 12-4.

Since we were out sightseeing during those hours and the weather was cloudy/raining, we had trouble with having enough charge to our batteries. We wouldn't stay in the Standard spaces again. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Travel Trailer.

I love this campground!! And this state park!!

First things first ... there are only a limited number of camp sites with hookups and we didn't get one. So, no hookups for a few days. Also, no cell service and no wifi. You are allowed to run your generator from 12noon - 4pm only. Minor inconvenience and totally worth it to be there. The camp sites are amazing ... very large with picnic tables, fire rings and grill and each is landscaped to preserve the natural foliage. And everywhere you look you see the magnificent red "hoodoos" and red sandstone cliffs that are part of the natural beauty of the area. Kodachrome welcomes everyone: tenters, smaller camping vehicles as well as larger rigs. We were the only motorhome there at the time. Each site feels very secluded and private. There are large and clean bath houses to use if needed.

The park itself has many hiking trails of various length and difficulty. The red rock formations of the area are just gorgeous and a joy to view out your window.

It rained the later part of our stay and didn't stop! So, with no wifi or cable, gin rummy was the entertainment for the evening. It was a good lesson in bringing a couple of board games with us "just in case."

The park is dog friendly (leashed) and our little one had a ball on the hiking trails or trying to chase the large rabbits that live there.

September is a perfect time to be in Utah ... warm / hot during the day and cool at night. Great sleeping weather!

It snowed in Bryce Canyon when we were there while we, in the valley, had rain only - and a bit of hail!

I definitely want to come back to this state park. Rustic and gorgeous natural landscape - Mother Nature at her finest! We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Motorhome.

This was a beautiful park which had lovely, spacious, private sites. We had full hookups which were easily accessed. There was no cell service for either Verizon or AT&T. There are numerous well-maintained hiking trails throughout the park which to allow leashed dogs. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The scenery was magnificent and the well maintained hiking trails let you explore the area on foot. The park is about 9 miles off Hwy 12 which means it is perfectly quiet. It was well worth the trip.

This is one of the cleanest campgrounds I have ever camped in. When I arrived there was not one piece of litter or cigarette butt to be seen. It was so clean I even went to the Ranger and commented on it. The campground was extremely quiet except for the screech of a prairie falcon flying by with a snake in is talons. Although I did not use the hook ups they had several that were well spaced and almost all provided shade.

I hiked almost every trail in the park in the two days I was there. It is also right next to the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument which had some great sightseeing and hiking also.

This is a park that I will certainly return to! The night sky was spectacular! We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Plan to spend at least 2 -3 full days there to see everything. Bring a good camera and tripod to be able to photograph this Beautiful place. It was Named Kodachrome by National Geographic and the beautiful colors of the area. The rock formations are both beautiful and unique.

Sites are well spaced for privacy, they have some full hook ups, some electric water, some tent sites, Paved site was probably 90 feet long and level. Beautiful park, very quiet and clean, great easy to moderate hiking trails, really dark skies for star gazing, views of Bryce Canyon in the distance, as well as the Grand Staircase, Easy day trip to Bryce Canyon. No cell phone coverage of any type. Probably books up on many weekends, reservations advised. Would stay here again. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Travel Trailer.

During a recent two month trip we stayed here for four nights. It quickly became our favorite. The cleanliness of the park, it's amenities and the staff are top notch. The natural beauty that surrounds you within the basin are almost indescribable. There are numerous hiking options, most of which offer amazing views. It is beyond quiet and peaceful, and the night sky is simply stunning. Unless you are very lucky you need to plan way ahead to secure a spot. But it's worth it.

Nice state park not far from Bryce Canyon. Spacious, level, scenic sites. Some sites have electric, all have water. No WIFI, no cell service. Lots of hiking trails, unfortunately some are used by a horseback riding concession and are in poor condition. Very scenic park. Nice showers.

We stayed here 3 nights in a motorhome. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very beautiful state park--rebuilt a couple of years ago. Restrooms and showers are in excellent condition. Park has paved sites with nice spacing. Lovely pinion pine and Utah junipers between the sites. It is 9 miles off the main road with one way in/out. Extremely quiet and relaxing. Several hikes in the campground. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

One of nicest campgrounds we've ever been at. Paved roads and parking pads. Full hookups all well placed and in good condition. Very good site separation. Extremely clean restrooms and showers. Some very nice hikes right in the park. We don't really camp anymore but rather travel with our dogs and use parks for overnight/short stays along our routes. Would definitely return here. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Motorhome.

A small state park with plenty of beautiful mountains. All roads newly paved with power and water, some are full hook ups. Some sites are small for smaller campers and several cabins for rent. Only a few sites for big rigs so be careful with large coaches. Park staff very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Motorhome.

Rangers were outstanding as far as helpfulness. We lucked out and did a "cold hit" (aka: no reservations) and got one of the camphost sites next to ranger station, paved site, FHU's, close to the bathroom. Many trails to choose from at this park, horse rentals, close to Grosvenor Arch, but we had 1 day (the first one) good weather, then 2 raining cats & dogs. Flash floods are common & lethal, our 2 days rain & flash floods claimed 18 lives from Zion NP throughout the south part of the state. Not good, HEED ANY WARNINGS FROM THE RANGERS! We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Motorhome.

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.
