5 Parks near Kanab, Utah
Jul 2015 - $39.00
As other reviewers noted, it's wilderness camping with full hook-up. The scenery is of breathtaking beauty. This being an RV park with only two sites, it's difficult to find a more private RV park than here. If you happen to have quiet neighbors on the other site, the peace and serenity is hard to beat.
The RV park is inside and part of Angel Canyon, the home of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. So many things the RV park itself lacks (like a shop, restrooms, WiFi access, cabins, cottages and more) are available in other parts of the sanctuary's wide spread facilities. However, it is about 1 mile from the park to the sanctuary's visitor center. So since this is an RV park review, the following comments only refer to the RV park itself.
The correct coordinates for the entrance of the park are Lat. 37.11387 and Long. -112.54805.
Info for big rigs: the length of site #1's concrete pad is 29.5 ft. between the front end and where the rear tires hit the stopper (27.5 ft. for site #2). There is 19 ft. space from the stopper to the fence, so even a sizeable overhang should fit in (12 ft. for site #2).
Communication: WiFi signal from the close-by cabins is too weak. We tried with an outdoor WiFi booster, but to no avail. So you need to get along with cellular service. On our travels, we use T-Mobile for voice and a Verizon Jetpack for Internet. Verizon gave us 3G service inside the coach and we roamed with our phones over AT&T with about two bars. However, for a solid phone call we needed to get out of the coach. Only after we installed our cell phone booster (with a trucker antenna), we got a faint signal from T-Mobile (too weak to be meaningfull, though), but 4-5 bars on AT&T and solid 4G/LTE data over Verizon.
The park is close to Kanab (10-15 minutes). We spent a whole week here and enjoyed it thoroughly. - Srdpty

We have stayed here the last two years while we volunteer at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. We love the peaceful star studded nights and beautiful canyon views during the day. You have full hook-ups, 50 amp, water, sewer and a cement pad with a small patio and picnic table next to your space. There are some Juniper trees, bushes and cacti in-between the sites but the pads are staggered so it gives you a little more privacy. Both sites are back in but easy to maneuver. Close to the highway but no street noise and nothing but peace and quiet after the sun goes down. Pet friendly but there are burrs and stickers so fur baby feet beware. Some deer pass through the sites and turkeys are nearby. We reserve site 2 as the pad is a little longer so our 45’ fits with the jacks on cement. A 15 minute ride to the town of Kanab with grocery shopping, restaurants, hardware store and post office among other things. An hour away from Zion and a bit longer to Bryce, both worth visiting. Great Verizon reception, WiFi and TV through our satellite. These sites stay full so book early. We book a year in advance. - PERRELLAS

We stayed for 4 nights. As the previous reviews mentioned, the location is spectacular and the site was level, with concrete pad and shade. The only problem was that the sites are pretty close side by side and there is no curfew on checking in. So, when the occupant of the second site arrived at 12:15 AM (yes - that's 15 minutes after midnight) and took 15 minutes to back their trailer into the spot and another hour to settle in we were kept awake until about 2AM. If you are alone in the site or have more considerate neighbors, then it would be great. That's my only reason for the lower rating. - gtogrl1

This was a stop over trip from Arizona to Idaho, and the park is clean. I've paid a lot less/night for much better amenities for families. Prior to checking in, we were sent an email of all the "rules" separate from the reservation confirmation. Then when we arrived, the first thing that is said to us is "the strict rules." Kids can't run, ride bikes, be loud and there is no entertainment for children. Although the sign at the entrance says: "Slow, kids at play." Office stated that they cater to seniors. Anyway, they had a small pool, and children were allowed to go in it, but hours of pool are 1pm-7pm. It was very refreshing, after a long drive, though. That's a plus. Campground is all gravel, and the pups don't like it. No grass area, but I walked out of the campground to the adjacent public property with a grass area by sidewalk, and cleaned up afterwards. The campground is also near the main highway, but when we are in the trailer, we can't hear the noise. - Mommarazzi

We have stayed here many times passing thru for day trip to Zion. Wim & Thea are wonderful and really work very hard to keep the place up. Would highly recommend it. - AZSwede

Good price for what is offered. Most sites are back-in only, so we had to disconnect. There is a small pool. It is older, but it was very clean. It does close early (7:30 pm), so you have to watch your time if you want to use it. The biggest problem is that the whole place is mostly dirt/gravel. When we went, in the middle of summer, it was extremely dusty! During rainy season, I imagine it might get muddy. Overall, it was a decent place to spend one night. - ADMD

Life unplugged. No net, no phones, no TV, and no problem with it. This is a group camp facility that has 3 or 4 full hookup sites and a lot of space for dry camping. They could do more but that is just not their focus. We stopped here because other RV camps were full, and got lucky. We shared the grounds with two groups of international trekkers tenting their way across America. We managed to back in to the sole available spot for a 45 foot MH, with sites on either side very close. Had an invisible neighbor on the right and a transition neighbor on the left for one night. Didn't really feel crowded. Took a bit of jockeying to clear the slides from utilities. Nice shade trees on each side and a mostly level site. Shared a sewer connection with the site next to us through a "Y" connection, our side ran slightly uphill. 30 amp power was clean and strong. The quiet beauty of the place and the friendly managers made the stay memorable. Red rock and horses. We visited Horseshoe Bend and Glen Canyon in Page and made a trip to Kanab just to check out the area. A large area to walk the dog off leash, complete with bunnies, and the stirring rock formations made for a very "off the grid" experience. Not for everyone, my wife was stir crazy at the lack of electronic access, I would recommend this spot in a heartbeat as an alternative to the more crowded campgrounds nearby. It's like staying at a friends ranch for the weekend. A real find. There was space for our 26 ft cargo trailer nearby. - Dog Mom 09

This is a "find". Not your average RV park. This is primarily a Guest Ranch that caters to groups coming in for 1-2 days, providing a western experience for mostly international young adults. It has 15 or so horses, one of which mows the lawn without a tether. They provide trail rides, western steak bbq, etc. The staff is extremely friendly and comfortable being out of the mainstream. Despite being only 200 yards off of the paved highway, you can forget about much of the world here and enjoy the peace and quiet. The full hookup sites are limited to 3-4 sites but they have abundant other sites for dry camping, or possibly water only. This site is close to the road going to Buckskin Gulch/The Wire BLM trailhead (slot canyon), and roughly half way between Kanab and Page. Call for info and reservation ... they don't take them over the internet. WiFi ok, but you need to come and sit on the porch of the office to have access . that of course is a pleasant process itself. - Bill Juhl

This is a barely adequate park for a stay in a beautiful area of Utah. The park is poorly maintained. The roads are rough, the hookups are antiquated. For example the sewer openings are covered with stones; the 30 amp hookups consisted of two legs hod hot wires from a 50 amp hookup. One leg for each side-to-side head-to-tail parked camper. If you turned of electric on one camper, you turned off electric to both campers. On the plus side, the Wi-Fi service was superb - fast and easy, totally accessible. We would probably stay here again, as good RV Parks are difficult to come by in the Kanab area. With a little effort this park could upgrade itself to being more than barely adequate. - hoppytoad

Even though we reserved our week here, they put us in a "Pull-in" site that required 32 feet of sewer hose and 25 feet of power cable.
The place worked for what we needed, but the inconvenience wasn't necessary. Oh, with all the scenery here, our view was the business next door. WiFi was good as was 30AMP. - magic

The campground needs a little love. Shabby is a good description. Two of us in separate RVs were here. My friend couldn't get her rig in the reserved spot because of a tree, so she was moved to another that was so unlevel that the rear axle of her rig was off the ground.
When I arrived, the put me near her, not next to her as requested. Wifi was good.
Permanent residents were a bit sketchy.
The sour note for us was after we had been there four nights, we wanted to extend our stay so we could enjoy the area longer. I asked if we could add three more nights and get the weekly rate and was told no.
I understand it was perfectly in their right to not offer a deal, but in the interest of customer service, it would have been nice. The park only had half a dozen sites occupied, and I'm sure they'd rather have sites used at a reduced rate rather than leave them empty.
We left for another park up the road when our four nights were up. - Doggie Mom

Nice, clean, park with some shade trees. Gravel roads and level sites with the expected dust. Utilities are solid with better than expected Wifi. Verizon 4G was also good. No dog run but pets are welcome. Sites are somewhat close but enough room for slides and awnings. Great location for Red Canyon, Bryce, and Utah Highway 12. I would stay again. - Pjoe

Great place to stay for a couple of days to visit the North Rim and other areas. Sites are pretty close together.
Dog friendly. Free WiFi. - LittleMo

Older park, lots of character. Friendly park. Gravel pads with concrete for wheels and porch. We would stay here again. Close to Zion and other National Parks. McDonald's across the street and park has very good wifi! Laundromat across the street. Good Karma here. - Jim Lee
