The young man who checked us in was very professional and provided very good information for us regarding Grand Staircase-Escalante. The site was fine but a little narrow, essentially no "outside" space for you to enjoy. Just enough for our rig, so no patio, picnic table, etc. There was a little shade. Easy to pick up lots of over the air TV stations. Free WiFi worked well. Restrooms and showers were very clean and nice. The laundry was nice but they only had large capacity washers at $3.50 or $4.00 per load. Driveways and sites are gravel/dirt. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Motorhome.
Very helpful people(owner). WiFi free and worked great. Laundromat, showers very clean & well maintained. Pull thru sites narrow, but wide enough for slides on both sides. All gravel surface but smooth and well cared for. Very neat campground in nice small town. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Decent park for exploring this beautiful area. Sites are narrow but wide enough for slides. Manager was friendly and helpful. Park WiFi OK when it works, which is not very often. No Verizon data service and almost no voice service. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sites are somewhat short and narrow and not level but adequate for short stays. We used outdoor rugs to cover the bare ground next to our trailer thereby limiting the amount of dirt which our dogs carried into our trailer.
We asked for and were assigned a site with good satellite reception. Wi-Fi was good and much better than at many major RV parks we have stayed in during this trip. Very strong water pressure and good quality water. Jason at the office gave us helpful advice and maps to explore this beautiful area. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
The Escalante Interagency Visitor Center is less than a 10 minutes' walk away where detailed information and maps about this area can be obtained.

Good central location for exploring Escalante area. Utilities were fine, Wi-Fi worked well with only occasional slowdowns. Spots are tight for bigger rigs and you have to watch out for trees when spotting rig. Campground is in town so some noise from roads and other campers. Friendly and helpful office staff. Sites were gravel and pull-through type. Ours required only slight leveling. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small park right on the edge of town and convenient to all the amenities and attractions of Escalante and the surrounding region. The sites are gravel and rather small and close together. The park also includes 5 small but attractive looking rental cabins and an area for tent campers. The restrooms were clean and attractive. There is a laundromat but the prices are kind of high. We used it anyway because there didn't appear to be any other laundromats in town and we needed to do laundry. I would rate this park a 9 or 10 if the spaces were a little larger and offered a bit more privacy from your neighbors. Like many RV parks and campgrounds in this region don't expect to find much shade. We had site #5 and did get a little afternoon shade from one small cottonwood tree. The owners have obviously been working on improvements to the park and I appreciated the colorful desert landscaping that they've done. They are also VERY knowledgeable about all the things to see and do in the area and gave us lots of advice and recommendations for exploring the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument and Dixie National Forest. We would definitely stay here again! We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Interior roads are gravel but the sites are mostly dirt - bad news when it rains. WI-FI is very good. Showers/Restrooms are excellent. Sites are very narrow, not very level and most do not offer a table or fire ring. Water quality is good. Low noise level. $33 includes the Utah State Tax. Good Sam Park. Salt Lake City air TV channels come in fine with the antenna. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
Not much going for this park except where it is located. Sites were both short and narrow. Over hanging trees scraped top of RV and made Satellite useless. Restroom wasn't clean and showers were small and dirty. Many of the keys to the bathroom didn't work and were available to anyone just walking in to the laundry so no security. Would not stay here again. Laundry was open to the public, only 3 machines and very expensive. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Motorhome.
Some of the sites are a little tight, but for a modest upcharge, we moved to a very nice site, with a firepit, table, and a great view. Our first night the park was full, so the Wi-Fi was overloaded and slow. For the rest of our stay (1 week) it worked very well. The laundry room was well equipped, and spotless. The manager and his staff were very helpful and accommodating. Escalante is in the mountain desert, so the RV park was mostly gravel, but it is well kept and situated to tour everything from Zion to Capital Reef. Restaurants, groceries, fuel, and shops are nearby, and the whole town seemed friendly. Be sure to ask the locals about backroad conditions, and bring your GPS. The whole area is beautiful, but you will feel very isolated out of town. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Motorhome.
Rate paid is based on one week stay with Good Sam discount. Roads and sites are gravel. Sites are close together. Very few picnic tables in the park. Laundry on site. The park filled up on the weekend and it was pretty tight. The two back-in sites, 30 & 31, are the roomiest. If we return, we would request one of those sites. Verizon signal was only 1X, barely good enough to make a phone call. The parks wifi was decent, though it would drop occasionally and would slow down during peak usage times. Walking distance to good restaurants. This is a good location to access the amazing outdoor recreation in this area. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice location for exploring Grand Staircase. Very friendly staff who provided recommendations and a convenient map to scenic attractions nearby. Circle D restaurant had great food and is right next door, Escalante Outfitters had good pizza, and coffee at the Kiva House on route 12 is a must. We stayed here in a 5th wheel with 3 dogs and had enough room for all 3 slide outs and our awning. Nice views of surrounding mountains all around. Lots of ATVs riding the streets around this campground from local rentals so if you want total quiet this might not be the place for you. We highly recommend renting a Razor to explore Hole In The Rock Road. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

It is another gravelly lot with RV sites. But, it is clean and well run and in a great location. The sites are small. Check out the Outfitters across the street and down the hill just a bit - they had great pizza. There is an ok grocery in town and a cool gourmet place.

Sites are MUCH too close together. I see directly into my neighbors windows! I got my awning out and it almost touches the rig next door...most people don't even Try an awning. With that said, most everything else about the park is excellent. The host is Amazing with knowledge of the area and willingness to help travelers. Very minimal grocery in town so plan ahead. Laundry available (a bit pricy), some good hiking options close by, and scenic Hwy 12. My price reflects the Weekly rate. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Level gravel sites, easy pull-throughs. On-site laundromat. On UT-12, but road noise was almost non-existent. (Important to us country boys..). We didn't plan to stay in Escalante as we had reservations at National Parks, but the government shutdown locked us out of the parks. Someone suggested this as an alternative, and what a great one it was. The manager was exceptionally helpful when asked about local attractions. He has file folders with nice maps showing distances to local attractions like Devil's Garden, Dry Fork Wash and slot canyons + many other destinations. Be sure to ask him, he's an excellent source of information! Great restaurant next door with exceptional smoked pork, ribs, beef brisket specialties. Indulge!! I'd stay here again - no question... Note that we don’t carry a TV around so no cable service is necessary nor could I assess access. We use the fifth-wheel primarily to have a comfortable place to sleep, a toilet and shower that don’t offer surprises, and someplace to store food. Other than that, we live outside!
