3 Parks near Duchesne, Utah
Sep 2016 - $28.00
Starvation State Park is a MUST visit. I actually stayed in two campgrounds - Indian Point (primitive, 15/night); found a site ON the water; and Beach Campground - 28/night ON the beach.
Nice level site, concrete pad, water/electric (sewer dump avail. on the way out of the park). Kayaking is EXCELLENT in the reservoir - even though water levels are down 30% from normal (this is the BEST I encountered in my travels this autumn!)
The park is near a small town of Duchesne. There is a good diner on the main street (you'll find it, its the only one) and a couple of large gas stations. - alansills

Stopped at the very nice visitor center on the east side of Duchesne and the docent recommended site #12 at the Beach campground. She was right, nice shade and right on the lake. Not sure when I've spend a more pleasant afternoon. Lake was swimable but a bit cold in June. Some of the sites slope down toward the lake but we were able to get leveled up easily. There are rental boats and jetskies available at the launch ramp. - oldmac

Clean and new-looking. Lots of grass on some sites. Beautiful views. We would stay here again. - Don E

By the time you read this, Camelot will be under new ownership - and thats a good thing. As to the facility - it is 6.5 miles off Rt 40 (take the road at about mile 66.5, marked "41950"), other than that, signage is non-existent. The park looks like it was built 40+ years ago and has been untouched since. The sites are all back-in and you're backing up to a stream (nice!) The power pedastles are OLD and only 30A. The water seemed ok.
There is virtually NO phone access inside this deep canyon and the road leading here gets very tight. I have a 38 ft 5th wheel and made it in and out, but had I encountered another vehicle, at certain points it would have been difficult.
There is a dirt road that runs upstream from the campground and I'm told has some great fishing spots. - alansills

The thing going for this place is the rock cliffs wrapping around it. It is beautiful. The Strawberry River goes right through it and a family caught a large brown trout (fyi, no live bait allowed). This type of RV park fits into a different category than typical. It is really rural, very few options in the area, it has a natural geographical draw with the cliffs, it's inexpensive, it kind of reminds you more of boondocking but with water and power. For example, there aren't any site numbers: just pick one I guess.
The RV park itself could use some upkeep. It's clear that at one time someone put some money into it and it has aged. If the park were full, the spots would be tight (two sites share one water spigot). When we were here we only saw 4 trailers total (Sunday and Monday nights). I wonder if weekends get busier. The dump station is pretty nice.
The lodge you can rent and rental cabins look ok. It's dead silent at night and the stars are amazing. Again, think rural and off the beaten path. Don't think KOA. - kohai

I read the other review that said it was the most beautiful park they had visited. Didn't quite say why though. It has spectacular scenery. We were amazed and really didn't have any expectation. You drive in of Hiway 40 through low rolling hills. All of sudden after about 6 miles on paved road, it narrows down to a very narrow canyon with beautiful rock formations and pinnacles. After another 1 1/2 miles on dirt/gravel road in pretty good condition, you make a turn in to Camelot and drive thru pinnacle rock formations to either the lodge or campground. It's like being at the bottom of a mini version of the Grand or Bryce Canyon. Huge cliffs and pinnacle so close you feel like you could reach out and touch them. The campgrounds have power and water with a dump station near the exit. Big open area with lawns. All sites back up to a small river with Cutthroat and Brown trout on the Strawberry river. The spacing would be a little tight if was full, but it's under the radar so I doubt it would ever be full. Only one other camper. Website pics don't do this place justice. I have a full size truck towing a 27' Airstream and could easily access the campground. The map directions on the website could be improved. The mileage is correct but the "Red Creek exit" is a little confusing. There is no "exit" in the traditional sense. You come to a depression of Hiway 40 and when you cross Red Creek, you turn on Road 41950 W. Cell phone reception was spotty, but at time we could access the internet with our Verizon data card and a Wilson cradle amplifier. - hhendrix

When approaching from the east the first entrance to this park is an awkward journey between a cemetery and a private drive past the laundry and restrooms before finding the office. Once there the manager is friendly and helpful. Interior roads are gravel; sites are gravel and follow the slope of the hillside so some are far from level. Mature trees and wide swaths of grass separate most sites. The site dimensions on the parks website include the grassy area so do not accurately reflect the space available for parking an rv and tow vehicle. Basic utilities worked well but there is neither cable nor wi-fi available. AT&T phone and data service worked adequately. Restrooms and showers were worn but clean. There was some highway noise but the park was mostly quiet. Sadly, low reservoir levels make the boat ramp and fishing pier unusable. - never settled

A veey spacious park with lots of shade and grass. A publoc boat ramp with lake access walking distance from park. The staff is friendly and helpful. We have stayed here several times and will stay again. - NM Fish

The rate is for Coast to Coast exchange. The park has new managers and they are doing a great job. They are friendly and knowledgeable. We were given great directions to our next stop that saved us lots of time. The park is beautiful, plenty of shade, large spaces, well maintained. We would have stayed longer if we had the time. There is a small lake that you can walk down to from the campground. Our GPS could not find it but we used the directions from the website. - NaniGulfShores
