Very clean and being renovated. Lovely and they are trying to upgrade it. The WiFi was excellent. Plenty to see and do around there.

Major drawback is that the spaces are VERY close. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Motorhome.

A very nice RV park on the west side of Escalante. It is a small park that has shorter pull throughs on one side and longer pull throughs in the middle. Our 39 foot coach fit in the site but the toad needed to be parked sideways at the front or back of the site. A very quiet park and well kept. The restrooms and showers are very nice and clean. The park is very convenient to all the sights in the area. It was easy to get in and out of the park. The wifi was pretty good - the best we have had in a long time. The connections were conveniently located. We were able to position our satellite dish to get good reception. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Motorhome.

The hike to lower Calf Creek Falls was great. We drove on the Hells Backbone road and it was a great drive. We hiked to the Zebra slot and the scenery on the way was amazing.

Very nice park right in Escalante. Friendly staff. Spaces are a little tight, but staggered so most have a view. Views are better at the back. Great central point to see highway 12, hike lower calf creek. Laundry was expensive, but machines are oversized and do a good job. Would stay here again. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Circle D restaurant right next door has good food and excellent beer selection. Burr Trail Road was especially beautiful. Wouldn't go down Hole in the Rock road again - very rough and Devil's gardens are nice, but many other hoodoos in the vicinity. Petrified Forest state park has a nice and fairly challenging hike to overviews of escalante - about 3 miles round trip.

This campground is very convenient to all the attractions of the Grand Staircase - Escalante National Monument. In fact, the owner is quite knowledgeable about the monument and is willing to advise visitors.
The actual campsites are adequate, with full hookups and mostly pull-through sites. On the other hand, the sites are very narrow - you will be just a few feet away from your neighbor. Access is reasonable, assuming you know how to drive your own rig! The laundry seems very expensive, but the machines are very large industrial grade, so overall the price is reasonable if you do a very large load. WiFi was very good, in fact upgraded during our stay, but a bit overloaded during busy times. Note that the town of Escalante does have a grocery store, but it is small and expensive. Stock up before arriving!
Overall, this was a good place to stay. Our rate is Good Sam. We would stay here again. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.
