5 RV Parks near Kanab, Utah
Jul 2016 - $30.00
As others have mentioned, these are 2 sites set quite a bit away from everything else in the park. Which makes them very quiet and secluded! The roads were easy to navigate with a larger rig, the site was level and the hook ups were easy. The only complicating issue was a handrail at the back of the pad. I don't know why it was there, but you had to make sure your rig was skirting the opposite edge of the pad if you had rear slides to deploy. The scenery was breathtaking but we didn't get to enjoy it as much as we had hoped due to the swarms of mosquitoes. - wookiemouse

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

This is an older park but well maintained. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The park is conveniently located in town. The roads are easily navigated and the utilities are convenient. There are 50 amp pull-thru sites, however, there was a rally when we were there and this 30 amp site was the only one available when we made the reservation. - Gator67

This park was typical of this area. A few trees. Convenient to local attractions. Very tightly packed. Gravel road and sites. - DYK 640

Very nice park, and well maintained. I had a little trouble navigating in and out of the park with a 28" motorhome (not towing anything), but I was on the side of the park adjacent to the street. Also, part of the issue was not anything in the park itself, but the fact that many people in the row I was parked in had vehicles jutting into the road. The rest of the park looked like it was easy to get through. The site itself had plenty of room for slides on both sides, though the sites were pretty close together. The owners are fabulous and obviously taking great pains to make this a nice park. There is some really pretty landscaping. As noted, the wifi is amazing. Verizon signal was decent, and there were lots of o/a tv stations, with very good reception. You can walk to groceries or the PO. My only complaint was the noise from the street. However, I was backed up directly onto the street. I suspect the sites on the other side of the park are protected somewhat from the noise. - KAP99

We stayed one night on our way from Las Vegas Nevada to Albuquerque New Mexico because other RV campgrounds were full. We stayed in one of the few full hookup sites. We enjoyed a very quiet and peaceful night. No WiFi at the site but my Verizon hot spot worked well. We would stay here again. - Just Roaming about

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 park is everything the other reviews have said. The roads and sites are gravel with grass and dirt. There are some flat sites but we used 4.5" of wood plus full extension of our air bags. They have 50 amp for $39/ night but we had the 30 amp. with water and sewer at the sites. The park is pretty quiet with about half the spaces taken by long term residents. We were here in 2013 and the bathroom/showers were clean but showed their age. Since then they have retiled the bathroom but the showers are still a bit old but functional. They have great pressure and all the hot water you can use in the showers. When the hot water heater kicks in it sounds like a couple of souped up Harley's idling out side the door. This is the rv park that will probably have room when the other one is full. They do have a pool but it has not been filled yet and I'm told that it is open during the summer. We will probably stay here again when we are in the area. - pumper9x9

Pull thru, not very level but adequate. Older park, but had full hookups with very close reach. Quite a few full time guests with kids. 17 local TV stations off antenna. I would stay here again. - Ahrmless

This place is between BAD and TERRIBLE. The campground is run down and was designed for a 14 foot travel trailer. The sites are not level and most motor homes are on blocks with a ladder up to the door. The electric looks like 1950 wiring that has been modified by a farmer. Power was unstable and 50 amp pedestal looks like an old 30 AMP 110v that was converted to 220V. May still only have 30 amps. It does not look safe. The bathrooms are rotted and dirty, and today there was raw sewage running through the campground with a plumber out there trying to get it under control. There is an ABSOLUTELY NO REFUND policy in force here. There is a very good reason for that policy. After they have your money and you see how terrible this place is, you will want to leave. You can leave, but your money stays, and they will re-rent your site after you are gone. If you ignore this review and stay here anyway, my advice is to just pay for one night and then if you want to stay, you can pay for more. By the way, I am writing this review using my ATT hotspot because for the tenth day the WiFi is not working.
Why did I stay for ten days? NO REFUNDS. - Beaver 43

A great campground to use as a home base while in the southern Utah area. Convenient to many local attractions, including Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. Also - can walk to restaurants, movie theater and shops. New owners are busy making improvements. Some sites are smaller, but still plenty of room for slides. - Amroll

Older park with spaces a little tight but with trees, level sites, plenty of charm, and very friendly hosts. Right downtown so easy walking to laundry, restaurants, and groceries. Noise at night was minimal as the town seems to roll up their sidewalks in the evening. As new visitors to the area, the good wifi was very much appreciated for investigating places to go and things to do. Best we've seen in a long time, really smoking. Kanab is very centrally located for many activities in this part of Utah: hiking, history, scenery, etc. The restroom facilities are very limited: for men there is one shower, one urinal, and one stall. And if you are over 6'-2", you will probably have to use the stall with the door open. - Old Geezer

While this little RV Park might be a little more rustic than some of the high-dollar RV resorts you've been to but it is an awesome place to hang your hat if you are in Kanab - especially if you are here for a few days of trail riding or just passing through and need space just for the night.
We were welcomed and immediately made to feel at home by the owners and camp hosting team. The restroom/shower facilities were spotless and well maintained. There are several eateries within walking distance, with a great old-fashioned burger restaurant and a McDonalds right across the street.
We spent several days here enjoying the awesome trails and breath-taking scenery of Hog Canyon, Johnson Canyon, and The Grand Staircase Escalante, covering over 250 miles of trails in 3 days. Johnson Canyon Road, (8 miles from the RV park on SR 89) will take you on a very scenic 50 plus mile ride through the back country to Cannonville. 4WD Recommended, but saw many regular cars on the trail.
Many thanks to the owners and camp hosts. A very special thanks to camp hosts who led us up Hog Canyon to that beautiful overlook. We had a fantastic time with all of you. Thanks for the wonderful hospitality... We will see you again, of that we are sure.
We were a total of 67 feet long. Had my 6.5 x 14 feet UTV trailer attached to the 5th wheel. Had to disconnect my tow vehicle. We're in the only oversized pull thru at the park.
This is an older park, so it's smaller, and a little more rustic, but they accommodated large DP's and other 5th Wheels with extra trailers.
They also have cabins. And it's great for overnighters, too. Lots of rental RV's with European tourists in and out on a daily basis. - Arizona Flying Dutchman
