Regarding earlier comments, RT 211 is a typical canyon area entry road. it has some steeper sections, but is fully paved. We had no problem getting here in our 39' motorhome. We had a nice spot in front of a bluff with lots of separation. This is dry camping, no hook ups. There is a water station where we filled our tank. The campground loop has some ruts, but go slow and they are fine. It has great access to the needles section of Canyonlands NP. Bring a jeep or be prepared to hike to enjoy the Canyonlands. The lady is a bit flaky, but we got along just fine. Good Internet access at the camp store but not from your site. We would stay here again. Cash only, no credit cards. We camped at Canyonlands Needles Outpost (Privately Owned) in a Motorhome.

There are a few bumps in the campground, but they are no worse than the dozen or so cattle grates on the way to the Needles District. My Swarovski crystal collection survived just fine: and you know I can't leave home without that! There is some sugar sand around the dump station (gravel needed here), but the remainder of the place was fine. I thought $20/night was a little steep for a spot w/o hook-ups, even for a captured market, but it was nice to have a reservation instead of hoping for a walk-in site inside the park: a difficult proposition during peak season. We camped at Canyonlands Needles Outpost (Privately Owned) in a Motorhome.

In contrast to the earlier reviewer, we saw no trees that presented a hazard and the sand in the roads is only an inch or two deep, so it's probably a hazard after a heavy rain but not otherwise. Some sections of the campground loop road are badly rutted and impassible for a big rig, but OK for smaller campers. We had no trouble getting into our site with a 34-foot motorhome, although it was so narrow we had to part the bushes to open bin doors on one side. It was a charming spot with a picnic table and fire ring on a raised platform with a few juniper trees for partial shade, up against the slick rock with a dynamite expansive view. The campsites are separated by perhaps 100 feet and we saw neighbors only to one side (on the other side they were around a bend in the rock), so we had enough privacy to use our sun shower each day and save the $2.50/person shower fee (for a 5 minute shower you could pause). The rather crusty manager denied owning a rake that we could use to ease the rutted exit from the really, really narrow and lumpy dump site. We've heard that she frequently is quite a nasty person and it's wise to not antagonize her, but she was nice the two times we spoke. The little store serves breakfast, lunch, and snacks and stocks basic food items like milk and eggs plus canned and frozen food. The restroom was basic but fine. The only reason to stay here, of course, is for access to Canyonlands Needles district and we were glad that they are in business. We camped at Canyonlands Needles Outpost (Privately Owned) in a Motorhome.

Highway 211 leads in parts under narrow trees to Canyons Land NP Needles District. If you have a big rig you should avoid this road. The campground is just before the National Park. The access road is full of soft red sand. The campground is in horrible shape. We were afraid not to get out again if it would have started to rain. So stay away from this campground. We camped at Canyonlands Needles Outpost (Privately Owned) in a Motorhome.
