Small park and not many sites have electricity. Not really suitable for big rigs but one somehow got into site #1 next to us. No sites right on the lake but all are just as short. The petrified tree trail is an interesting hike but not much else to do if you are not fishing. We camped at Escalante Petrified Forest State Park in a Motorhome.

$25 per night was for a mostly level gravel site with 50 amp electric, water, picnic table, fire ring, and pedestal BBQ. This campground is located alongside the sparkling waterfowl-filled Wide Hollow Reservoir. The park has petrified trees scattered along their main hiking trail. The live trees still had leaves on them during our stay and there are tall brush-like plants along most of the perimeter of the reservoir. Escalante, the nearest town, has the basic general store and several restaurants. AT&T cell service was minimal but could be used for calls and texts. Verizon service was nonexistent. Free Internet access via the park’s Wi-Fi worked well. We received 23 OTA TV stations and several radio stations. We camped at Escalante Petrified Forest State Park in a Motorhome.

Clean but very small state park. Sites paved, only one hiking trail (up the side of a mesa - hubby decided against it.) There were some examples of petrified wood, which was interesting. The lake was extremely low when we went - more of a puddle. No cell signal, but were able to get TV on the antenna. The park also surprisingly had free Wi-Fi, but not a great signal. We were in site 20, which was a nice site, although they all looked pretty good (some rather small). We camped at Escalante Petrified Forest State Park in a Motorhome.

Very busy park at this time of year due to tourists traveling highway 12. There are 6 sites with electricity, 3 of them are on a gravel road, all the rest are paved. This year the level of water in the lake was very low. This is a basic campground but met our needs. We camped at Escalante Petrified Forest State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nicest place to stay in Escalante, with wide sites. Extra clean sanitary installation. Nice view with the lake-reservoir and interesting hike to see petrified wood. As we have a short motorhome, this place is perfect. Would definitely stay there again. We camped at Escalante Petrified Forest State Park in a Motorhome.

As others have said, nothing extraordinary about this park, but the general area is wonderful if you like red rock country. All sites are paved and some have shade. Individual shower rooms were clean. The hike from the park up into the petrified forest area is great. Much to see in the surrounding area. Be sure to stop at local BLM visitor center in town for maps and information. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Escalante Petrified Forest State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a good State Park on a small reservoir. OK to fish or canoe. Hard working Rangers (including the head Ranger) are always present keeping the park clean and neat and disciplined. Excellent guided hike by Ranger up to the petrified wood area. Lots of sites are unlevel but all are on pavement. Bigger units should request #20 and #13. Also, in the fringe season, the Camp Host site could be avail for surcharge and get electric hookups (need to ask when you get here.) We camped at Escalante Petrified Forest State Park in a Motorhome.

The park is in a great location to tour the Grand Staircase attractions. It is quiet and well off the road. Most sites are small and need significant leveling. Some are very private with great views. The biggest problem with the park is the design of the dump station. It is difficult to get into and is sloped away from the dump basin so that many tanks simply won't empty there. In addition, the only potable water is in the CG loop. There is an unmarked spigot near the dump station that appears to be "potable water" but it isn't! The only way to find out is ask the park host. Given the lack of RV facilities in Escalante this is a good alternative. We camped at Escalante Petrified Forest State Park in a Motorhome.

The campground isn't particularly exciting, however the surrounding area makes it well worth visiting. From the CG one can take a short (2.5 mile round trip) trail up the hill and into the Escalante Petrified Forest. In many respects the Forest here is more inspiring than that at Petrified Forest Nat'l Park. The rocks are in a natural setting, not staged, visitations are fewer, and the walk through the forest (mainly P/J) is truly enjoyable. The CG has water, a dump station, clean rest rooms and showers. Sites are fairly level and are generally well separated with picnic tables, fire rings and gravel/dirt sites. Several other trails lead from the CG around the lake and into the forest. Fishing and swimming are allowed in the lake. The town of Escalante is home to one of the Visitor's Centers for the Grand Staircase Escalante Nat'l Monument and worth stopping to pick up additional info concerning the area. We camped at Escalante Petrified Forest State Park in a camper.
